    Furuno SafeHelm2 Bi-Directional Flow Switch Sensor Pack w/ Adaptors SAFEHELM2

    Furuno's SafeHelm2 is an optional sensor designed for use with NavPilot 300/700/711C series autopilots. The SafeHelm2 senses when an operator is manually steering their vessel while the autopilot is engaged and switches the NavPilot to manual steering for a specified time interval. This provides a helmsman with full manual control of the vessel. After the time interval has elapsed, SafeHelm2 resumes the previous automatic steering mode.

    Features:

    • Compact bi-directional hydraulic helm flow switch sensor
    • Senses when an operator is manually steering their vessel while autopilot is engaged, switching the NavPilot to manual steering for a specified time interval
      • Provides a helmsman with full manual control of the vessel
    • Independent reversing pump works with any existing or new hydraulic reversing pump from any manufacturer
    • Reproduces the tactile sensation of hydraulic drag at the vessel's helm
    • May be easily tested, removed, and replaced without opening the vessel's hydraulic system
    • Mounts in any orientation for direct installation on a variety of vessel sizes and plumbing configurations
    • Works with any existing Furuno NavPilot 300 or NavPilot 700/711C series autopilot with no software or hardware update required
    • Includes adapters for "gender-matched" installations where no additional fittings or hoses are required or necessary
      • Allows for direct installation on any hydraulic helm vessel in North America that has already been plumbed for an autopilot with reversing pump control

    In the Box:

    • Bi-directional flow switch sensor
    • (2) 1/4" NPT female to ORB #8 male
    • 1/4" NPT male to ORB #8 male
