fwallenwein schreibt Currently we can offer an improved version of the Gyro as a field test version.
If you are interested to become a field tester please contact us by mail - firstname.lastname@example.org
This project is a turn-rate-sensor ( gyro ) for autopilots.
The gyro is compatible with the external Raymarine
GyroPlus* M81162 - which unfortunately isn't available anymore.
Since we needed a replacement for our boat and could not get one anymore, we decided to built it ourselfs.
This gyro sensor is compatible with all series 100/300, T150/T400 and S1/S2/S3 autopilots. A gyro improves the capabilities and functions of your autopilot - especially in difficult conditions.
With autopilots series 100/300 response Level 3 is possible. With all other autopilots, there are 9 levels available ( see your Autopilot Manual )
Additionally Advanced Steering Technologie (AST)* and AutoLearn* is available, when the gyro is attached to ST6001/ST7001 or newer devices.
When the gyro is attached to devices series T150/T400 and S1/S2/S3, a Fast Heading
Out with 5Hz and 10 Hz update rate is available on NMEA-1 output. This is necessary for correct sea chart - radar overlays.
Altogether a gyro is a useful addition to any autopilot. It enables the autopilot to steer your boat more safely, it brings a better response and a more precise control of the vessel.
Overview of additional functions available when the autopilot has access to gyro information:
|Series 100/300||Series T150/T400/S1/S2/S3|
|Response-Level 3 ||9 Response-Levels available.|
AutoLearn*, AST*, AutoTrim*

This device has been successfully tested on our boat.
It is currently still in "sea trial" phase.
10 devices will be available shortly for other "field testers" for a special "field tester discount".
You can find a preliminary manual in English language HERE.
