Evolution Autopilots

A New Level of Autopilot Control

Race, cruise or fish – Evolution will take command

No fuss, easy to install and robust – the Evolution autopilot combines Raymarine’s autopilot expertise, FLIR Systems’ R&D, and advanced aerospace guidance technology to create Evolution Ai control algorithms that deliver a new level of accurate autopilot control.

Key Features

Evolution Group 500 Raymarine
Evolution Group 500 Raymarine
  • Automagic™ – No lengthy calibration procedures to perform. No compass calibration required. Plug and play connections.
  • Easy to install – Freedom from the restrictions of conventional heading sensors. EV sensor core can be installed above or below deck. Install upside-down or off the vessel’s centre line.
  • Aerospace technology – 9-axis precision monitoring of pitch, roll, yaw and heading.
  • Fuel efficient – Evolution autopilots steer so accurately they will save fuel and get you to your destination faster.

The EV Sensor Core

At the centre of every Evolution system is the intelligent EV sensor core, a 9-axis sensor that monitors vessel motion in all three dimensions. The innovative EV sensor core combines advanced solid-state sensors with the Evolution autopilot processor into a single easy-to-install housing.

Mount the EV sensor core above or below decks, the rugged enclosure is fully sealed and built to IPX6 and IPX7 waterproofing and submersion standards.

EV Sensor Core Benefits

  • Precision monitoring of heading, pitch, roll, and yaw allowing the autopilot to evolve instantly as sea conditions and vessel dynamics change.
  • Flexible installation options. Mount above or below deck.
  • Simple SeaTalkng connectivity to the control head and ACU.
  • Solid state sensor technology delivers dynamic accuracy to within 2 degrees in all conditions.
  • Auto-compensation for on board magnetic fields and reliable heading accuracy in the northern and southern extremes.
  • Fast and reliable heading data for MARPA, radar overlay, and heading modes on Raymarine multifunction displays.

Autopilot Control Unit (ACU)

The rugged ACU (Actuator Control Unit) delivers reliable autopilot drive power and also provides power to the SeaTalkng bus. Choose the ACU that fits your steering type :

ITEMSupported Drives
ACU-100Wheel, tiller and 0.5 ltr Hydraulic
NEW: ACU-150Type-1 Hydraulic Drive Unit
ACU-200Type 1 Raymarine hydraulic, linear and rotary mechanical drives
ACU-300For solenoid controlled steering systems and Raymarine constant running hydraulic pumps
ACU-400Type 2 and 3 Raymarine hydraulic, linear, and rotary mechanical drives

NEW ACU 150

The Raymarine ACU-150 is a component of the Evolution™ Autopilot system and is designed to provide power and control to a Raymarine Type-1 Hydraulic Drive Unit (M81120.)

The ACU-150 connects to the SeaTalkng network for communication with its other peripherals. It also has connections for an optional Rudder Reference Unit (sold separately.) The ACU-150 works on 12-volt DC systems only.

To make a complete ACU-150 autopilot system you must also add the Type-1 Hydraulic Drive Unit (M81120), Evolution EV1 Sensor Core (E70096), Evolution Cable Kit (R70160) and either the p70s (E70328) or p70Rs (E70329) autopilot control head.

Your Evolution autopilot system

EV-1 Cockpit and Inboard Autopilots

EV-1 autopilots consist of a Control Head, EV-1 Sensor, Autopilot Control Unit (ACU) and drive unit. The drive unit (inboard mechanical/ hydraulic or cockpit mounted) and correct ACU for your vessel is dependent on the steering system and displacement of the vessel itself.

EV-2 for Drive-by-Wire Propulsion

EV-2 has been designed for the latest drive-by-wire steering systems and connects directly to Raymarine’s SeaTalkng bus. EV-2 also has a dedicated CAN Bus port for direct connection to steer-by-wire steering systems – such as ZF Pod Drives, Yamaha Helm Master, Volvo IPS and SeaStar Solutions Optimus systems. A single CAN Bus connection to the EV-2 eliminates the need for an Autopilot Control Unit (ACU) further simplifying installation.

Autopilot Control

New Control Heads
New Control Heads

p70 / p70R and the new p70s / p70Rs autopilot control heads

Complete your Evolution autopilot system with an autopilot control. The new p70s and p70Rs control heads feature vibrant colour displays and are powered by Raymarine’s intuitive LightHouse user interface.

LightHouse organises all options into simple menu structures and with Evolution’s quick setup process you will be up and running in minutes.

Designed for sailing yachts, the p70s offers simple 1 and 10 degree direct course change push buttons.

The p70Rs features a rotary dial control for power boaters. Use the rotary dial for menu and course changes or activate power steer mode and steer manually right from the p70Rs.

Autopilot control from Raymarine MFDs

Control your Evolution Autopilot directly from your Raymarine aSeries, cSeries, eSeries or gS Series multifunction display. Note that your multifunction display must be running Raymarine’s LightHouse II software and that some autopilot functionality may not be available if your system does not include a dedicated autopilot control head.
