Autopilot control designed specifically for sailors.
Smart Manoeuvre - tack at the touch of a button
Low power consumption
Intelligent Sail Steering - steer to a compass heading, or automatically maintain a specified wind angle
This intuitive autopilot controller keypad can be combined with a B&G Triton² Display to create a fully-featured autopilot control head. B&G’s Intelligent Sail Steering functionality allows you to steer to a compass heading, or to automatically maintain a specified true or apparent wind angle in Wind mode. Smart Manoeuvre controls tack at the touch of a button, a perfect tool when sailing shorthanded. Connect to a compatible chartplotter, and Navigation mode will steer to your currently selected waypoint or route.
A simple pushbutton interface makes the Triton² Pilot easy to operate in rough conditions, and reliably responsive to wet or gloved hands. Dedicated auto and standby buttons enable or disable the autopilot with a single press, so it’s easy to free your hands from the wheel or instantly take control whenever you need to. The ‘mode’ button engages the pilot’s Wind or Navigation auto-steering modes, while dual port and starboard buttons allow course adjustments in one-degree or ten-degree increments. Smartly shaped buttons let you distinguish between these increments at a touch, for safe operation in low visibility.
The Triton² Pilot keypad is easily mounted, and offers single-cable NMEA 2000® connectivity for both power and data. Multiple keypads and Triton² Displays can be installed to offer autopilot control from anywhere on board.
