The new Simrad AC42 Autopilot Course Computer is compact, yet more powerful than ever and contains advanced software algorithms that make it the brains of the system. The AC24 can incorporate position and navigation data from the GPS chartplotter and wind, speed and depth data from the instrument system. The output is a smooth proportional control of the rudder with the utmost precision, providing excellent steering performance in any sea conditions with a minimum of power consumption. The AC42 Autopilot is compatible with Hydraulic and Mechanical steering systems.

The autopilot computer is the main unit in the Simrad AP24 and Simrad AP28 autopilot systems.

The Simrad AC42 contains the steering computer and electronics for the drive unit motor and clutch and provides interface to other system components. It communicates on the proprietary SimNet data and control network to establish a reliable digital communication and power distribution between the units in the autopilot system as well as other Simrad products. SimNet provides high speed data transfer and control of Simrad products integrated in a total steering and navigation system.
