AUTOPILOT WITH VIRTUAL RUDDER FEEDBACK OR OPTONAL CABLE STEERING DRIVE UNITS
Easy-to-Use Pilot Offers Advanced Steering Features, Compact Size and Family Appearance with Other SI-TEX Products.
SI-TEX has added a new member to its growing family of high-performance autopilots. The SI-TEX SP-110 is an ideal solution for owners of small to medium sized powerboats, combining advanced steering features, simple push-button operation and rugged reliability. The SP-110’s Virtual Rudder Feedback capabilities — further enhance this new pilot’s simplicity, affordability and performance.
With a compact, splash-proof control head measuring just 4.3” square, the SP-110 can be mounted on just about any helm, console or dash. In addition, the SP-110 is specially designed to provide a family appearance with SI-TEX’s new SST-110 Digital Water Temperature Gauge and SDD-110 Digital Depth Gauge, making for an attractive and functional helm electronics package.
The SP-110 will pilot hydraulically steered boats using either a reversing pump or continuous drive unit. It can also be used on mechanical cable steered inboard, outboard and sterndrive vessels when paired with SI-TEX’s Mechanical DASH Drive or Remote Mechanical Drive system. The Mechanical drives feature a built-in rudder angle sensor unit that improves performance on fishing vessels trolling at very slow speeds.
Features include a transflective LCD display showing course and function data, simple operation with just four push buttons, better than 1 degree course detection and GPS mode (when interfaced to GPS/chartplotter via NMEA0183 input/output) for easy, automatic waypoint steering.
SI-TEX’s affordable SP-110 system comes complete with the control unit, standard rate compass, and all necessary hardware for flush mount installations.
