Raytheon Anschütz, a business of Raytheon Technologies, recently launched NautoPilot 5000NX, a new autopilot for ships. Our latest advanced autopilot combines unique algorithms for precise steering performance with a wide range of fuel-saving features.
NautoPilot 5000NX clearly displays all navigational information on a 7-inch graphical touchscreen. Crews can rely on the new autopilot’s intuitive operation that places heading, course, and track control steering modes at their fingertips.
“Years of experience in the field has shown that autopilots can also help save significantly on fuel,” said Olav Denker, product manager for autopilots and steering control systems at Anschütz.
“We designed numerous features for our NautoPilot 5000NX that help reduce fuel consumption alone or in combination.”
Speed, rudder movements, weather conditions, and the characteristics of the ship can all affect performance. NautoPilot 5000NX’s fuel-saving features include:
In addition to its fuel-saving features, NautoPilot 5000NX offers significant improvements compared to its predecessors. Built on new standardized hardware, it offers a modern user interface and supports Ethernet communication that meets IEC 61162-450 standards.
