Anschütz Heading Control System PilotStar NX

Descrizione

superior steering performance!

The autopilot is approved as heading control system for standard and for high-speed crafts. The PilotStar NX includes latest technical developments such as Ethernet communication and bridge alert management – this makes PilotStar NX easy to integrate into various system environments.
The PilotStar® NX offers superior steering performance and an extended range of functionality for day-to-day use and special applications.

Several steering modes for precision and reliability

  • Heading control mode: automatic steering on a defined heading.
  • NAV mode: follows the set point commands from route planning systems such as GPS receivers or chart plotters, including graphical and numerical presentation of deviations.
  • NFU/FU control: the rudder is controlled manually by using the soft buttons or the knob.

VERSATILE FUNCTIONS

Useful features that make both day-to-day operations and special applications safer and simpler.
  • The “Heading & Rudder Plot” allows for simple adjustments of autopilot parameters to optimize steering performance and fuel consumption.
  • “Trim mode” reduces rudder activity and optimizes steering performance for vessels with asymmetrical loads.
  • “Fix turn” allows pre-defined heading changes with a single push of a button.

SECURE INVESTMENT

Best value for newbuilding and refit projects.
  • Ease of use service features for simple and safe commissioning
  • Easy to integrate into various system environments, and extendable with NautoSteer AS tillers for the design of compact steering gear control systems
  • Compliant to latest performance and test standards for bridge alert management and standardized Ethernet communication (IEC 61162-450)

Type approval & standards

Compliant to latest performance and test standards for bridge alert management and standardized Ethernet communication (IEC 61162-450)

System integration

PilotStar NX is easy to integrate in newbuilt or refit projects. For integrating it into a NautoSteer AS steering gear control system, the PilotStar NX just needs to be connected to the redundant CAN bus. Autopilot control is simply activated by pushing the heading control button. For use in combination with other steering gear control systems or in refits, an interface unit is available. This interface unit provides a multitude of interfaces to the steering gear control system or directly to the steering gear. The heading control system can also be extended with manual controls such as FU tiller, NFU tiller and or handwheel to form a compact steering gear control system.

SYSTEM CONFIGURATION - STANDALONE INSTALLATION

Used for direct control of steering gear or in combination with steering gear control systems from other makers.

SYSTEM CONFIGURATION - STANDALONE WITH NAUTOSTEER AS TILLER(S)

Enhance your heading control system with manual controls. FU tiller, NFU tiller and even a handwheel can easily be connected.NautoSteer AS tiller(s) can be connected in order to design a compact steering gear control systems.

INTEGRATION WITH NAUTOSTEER AS

Easy integration into a NautoSteer AS steering gear control system by simply connecting PilotStar NX to the redundant CAN bus.No separate PilotStar NX interface unit required

CONNECTION OF A REMOTE OPERATOR UNIT

A remote operator unit is simply connected via Ethernet
