    At the center of every Evolution system is the intelligent Evolution EV Sensor Core , a 9-axis sensor that monitors vessel motion in all three dimensions. The innovative EV sensor core combines advanced solid-state sensors with the Evolution autopilot processor into a single easy-to-install housing, eliminating the need for complicated set up and calibration. Once Evolution is installed, getting started is as easy as switching the autopilot on. Thanks to the intelligent EV sensor core, the autopilot automatically evolves and adapts to your vessel's steering characteristics without any user adjustments.

    The EV-2 Sensor Core is designed for the latest drive-by-wire steering system. EV-2 connects directly to Raymarine's SeaTalk ng bus and also features a dedicated CAN Bus port for direct connection to steer-by-wire steering systems like ZF Pod Drives, Volvo IPS* and Teleflex Optimus systems. The single CAN Bus connection to the EV-2 eliminates the need for an ACU, further simplifying installation.

    (*optional Volvo IPS gateway and additional cabling required)

    Features of the EV-2:

    • Precision monitoring of heading, pitch, roll, and yaw
      • Allows the autopilot to evolve instantly as sea conditions and vessel dynamics change
    • Flexible installation options
      • Mount above or below your deck
    • Simple SeaTalk ng connectivity to the control head and ACU
    • Solid state sensor technology delivers dynamic accuracy to within 2 degrees in all conditions
    • Auto-compensation for on board magnetic fields and reliable heading accuracy in the northern and southern extremes
    • Fast and reliable heading data for MARPA, radar overlay, and heading modes on Raymarine multifunction displays
