Electronic Steering

As a result of a long experience in the design and production of steering systems, the new World Yacht electronic steering is a technologically advanced system that lends the cruising pleasure an improved safety and ease of control.
Follow-up electronic steering based on CAN BUS technology, it is an extremely reliable system thanks to the redundancy of several elements and it allows to control the boat in a comfortable and intuitive way in every sea conditions.
Particularly recommended for displacement and semi-displacement hulls, it is a system that anyway offers a great flexibility of application and configuration with a variety of adjustable options.
The steering also easily integrates and interfaces with auto-pilot and other control systems on board.

Regardless of control station configuration, each system is composed of a hydraulic equipment, limited to connections between electro-hydraulic power unit and actuators into engines room, and an electric/electronic system for the rest of the units.
The electro-hydraulic power unit is provided with two electric motors, each one supplying its own hydraulic circuit through a dedicated solenoid valve group.
The hydraulic circuits flow in parallel and actuate the two cylinders for the movement rudder bars.
The system is also provided with a manual emergency pump to be actuated by commuting the by-pass valves in case of electric system failure.
