Simrad Tillerpilots combine attractive styling with storm-proof weather protection to withstand the toughest conditions at sea. Designed to use minimum energy whilst providing maximum thrust, they provide fast and silent, in short, outstanding performance.
Both the TP22 and TP32 are SimNet-enabled, allowing intelligent data sharing across the revolutionary, NMEA2000-compatible SimNet high speed bus. The increased data flow provides maximized performance, whilst simplified interfacing plug n play supports straightforward installation.
NMEA direct connection
Alternatively, if SimNet-capable instruments are not available, the TP22/TP32 can be connected directly to most NMEA0183 GPS receivers via the built-in NMEA interface.
For larger vessels of up to 6,300 kg 14,000 lbs and a length of up to 12 m 39 ft, the TP22 and TP32 offer ultimate sophistication in automated steering.
With a peak thrust of up to 70 kg 154 lbs and a lock-to-lock speed of 8 secs with a 20 kg 44 lbs load the TP22 is a powerful midrange pilot for boats of up to 11m 36ft in length, which shares many advanced features with its top class complement, the TP32.
With a peak thrust of up to 85kg 187lbs and a lock-to-lock speed of 4.7 secs with a 20kg 44lbs load the TP32 exhibits a truly powerful performance.
Both the TP22 and TP32 can be connected to a SimNet Control Network, which will allow advanced data sharing across the system, speeding up the data flow and thus enhancing performance. Information provided via the SimNet data bus enables the autopilots to automatically steer to apparent wind or, if GPS information is available, to steer to the next programmed waypoint.
