The brains of the autopilot is the autopilot computer. Choose from H5000 for top-level performance, or our outstanding NAC-2 and NAC-3 pilot computers to complement a Triton2 system.
NAC-2 and NAC-3 Autopilot computers
For cruising/club racing installations where you want excellent performance, choose a Triton² pilot and a NAC-2 or NAC-3 autopilot computer. These, for low and high current applications respectively, contain the control algorithms developed to helm a yacht across a broad range of weather conditions and sea-states, alongside the electronics needed to operate a hydraulic or mechanical drive unit, while also interfacing with other components including heading sensors and rudder feedback units.
B&G Reflex steering technology NAC autopilot computers contain B&G’s Reflex control algorithms, designed to steer a yacht to compass, wind or waypoint. Every B&G steering innovation builds upon a legacy encompassing over sixty years of autopilot development, which continues today at Navico's autopilot research hub in Norway. This legacy is exemplified by the Reflex algorithm: the software that drives B&G steering technology. Reflex brings all those years of research and on-water experience to your helm, for a smart pilot you can trust to take the wheel.
Easy Installation Plug-and-play connectors facilitate easy installation, minimising the wiring necessary to install your autopilot system. Industry-standard NMEA 2000® networking offers simple connectivity to heading sensors, rudder feedback units, autopilot controllers, and multifunction displays located anywhere on board.
Core pack bundles are available for NAC autopilot computers, which include a Precision-9 compass, NAC-computer, rudder reference sensor (if required) and a NMEA 2000 backbone starter kit. For H5000, contact a dealer or installer to fully specify your system requirements.
