Offering an Additional Layer of Safety to your NavPilot Autopilot!
The Furuno SafeHelm2 sensor is an optional accessory for your Furuno NavPilot 300/700 or 711C autopilot. This compact, bi-directional hydraulic helm flow switch sensor provides an extra measure of safety when you need to grab the helm and manually control your boat when the autopilot has been engaged. SafeHelm2 switches the NavPilot to manual steering for a specified time, allowing full control of the vessel. After the time interval has elapsed, SafeHelm2 resumes the previous automatic steering mode. Simply grab the wheel, steer around the obstacle and hold your course until the autopilot re-engages.
Furuno has made it easy to add the SafeHelm2 to your hydraulic helm vessel with an existing Reversing Pump Autopilot Drive system (NavPilot 300/700/711C). Furuno has included all adapter fittings to add the sensor to boats that fall within these specs. No additional hoses, fittings or software updates are required! There is no specified physical mounting orientation for the SafeHelm2 making it easy to install even in tight spaces. The Safe Helm 2 module can be easily tested, removed or replaced without opening the boat’s hydraulic system. If you’re looking to add an extra layer of safety to your Furuno autopilot, the SafeHelm sensor is a must-have to any boat owner.
