Navitron Autopilots

FURUNO DANMARK A/S is distributor of the worldwide recognized NAVITRON Autopilot series. These high quality and reliable autopilots come in numerous variations and can meet any Wheelmark or other specific approval requirements. These pilots are very price competetive compared to other vendors of similar products.

Heading Repeaters

There are a number of Digital and Analogue Heading Reapeters available in the Navitron Portfolio. Contact FURUNO for details. 

NT920AHR Analog Heading Repeater

Navitron Analogue Heading Repeater NT920AHR may be configured as single or multi head independent systems or as add on components to most Navitron autopilot types and Navitron Heading Data Interfaces to display NMEA 0183 heading data received from primary transmission sources of all kinds (Gyro Compass, GPS Antenna Compass, TMC systems etc.)






Off Course Alarm type NT925OCA

The Navitron Off Course Alarm type NT925OCA is a fully independent course monitoring device which complies with the articles of IMO resolution A342 (IX). It can be installed with a single heading input obtained from a Navitron Heading Sensor Coil (type HSC2) or from a proprietary NMEA source (or both) when used as a completely independent system. However, if one of the heading data inputs is common to the heading data provided for an autopilot system (gyro data etc) the second heading input to the NT925OCA must be obtained from an independent (mag compass etc) source.





NT920NFU Non Follow Up Control

Navitron Power Steer controls are intended for installation in sheltered (bridge or wheelhouse) locations and are suitable for use as single or multistation units with all Navitron autopilot types. Fully Type Approved for inclusion. With Navitron Autopilots, the NT920NFU is a dual function device which enables permanent (NFU) and temporary (DODGE) heading changes to be ordered at locations remote from the autopilot control unit.









NT990FU (Follow Up) control

The NT990FU (Follow Up) Control is also Type Approved. The autopilot system enables permanent (POWER STEER) heading changes to be ordered at locations remote from the autopilot control unit. The direction of movement of the NT990FU lever (right or left) to initiate Port or Starboard rudder movement is installation selectable and automatically corresponding coloured sectors results in reversal of the corresponding red and green sectors on the control panel. This is achieved by bi-colour backlighting, which is variable via the ILLUM key.







Electronic Pitch & Roll (EPR) Inclinometer

NT1000 Inclinometer

NT1000 is an extremely price attractive, robust and accurate instrument which is fully compliant with IMSC. 363(92). Installement of a digital Inclinometer is recomended by IMO. The traditional mechanical “pendulum” type of heel measuring devices can provide reasonably accurate indications of angle, but this is largely confined to static situations whereas in a seaway, pendulum mass and inertia will invariably result in significant errors. Serial Data input/output facilities enable the NT1000 EPR Inclinometer to send data to VDR and to communicate bi-directionally with BAMS etc. The NT1000 display is capable of indicating live pitch / roll and the roll period. In addition, historical data can be indicated from 0 to 30 minutes. A total of 3 slave displays can be added to the NT1000 inclinometer allowing a total of 4 displays.


Navitron Heading Data Interface

For providing heading data/signal coupling between otherwise incompatible equipment, the Navitron Heading Data Interface range offers simple to install solutions to many heading data and speed log communication problems. Six models of Heading Data Interface (HDI) are available to convert heading signals sourced from proprietary types of gyro, magnetic and electronic compass - including GPS antenna types - to the signal format(s) required to ‘handshake’ with a wide range of end users such as Radars, ECDIS, Autopilots, GPS Receivers and Heading Repeaters. Additionally, three of the models will accept speed log pulse information for conversion to combined NMEA heading and speed data output (VHW sentence) for use by ECDIS and AIS Systems etc.



Main Steering Systems

All SOLAS/Class rated vessels are required to be fitted with Main and Backup Steering facilities and components, which have been Approved and Certificated commensurate with relevant flag and Classification Society performance and reliability standards. Accordingly, all Main Steering System components designed & manufactured by Navitron Systems Ltd. have been fully Approved by Classification Societis (DNV GL, ABS, RMRS, RRR etc.), and may be configured for complete Main Steering console configurations and/or stand alone component use as appropriate. Whilst a typical Main Steering console might comprise Full Follow Up, Non Follow Up and Override Steering Controls etc. the final content can be chosen to suit the Steering System(s) involved (single or dual rudder, SOLAS or Non SOLAS etc.) thus a modular and cost effective range of Steering Control Panel variants are available.


NT850 Main Steering System 

In the event that the Bridge/Wheelhouse conning position is seriously compromised by fire, flood or explosion etc., all Steering Controls can be isolated and diverted to the Steering Room via the Emergency Steering Panel which will provide Dual Rudder NFU Control with associated Rudder Angle and Vessel Heading Indication - all powered from 24Vdc Emergency Power Supplies. An Aft Station example providing dynamic positioning (DP1/DP2) and Back Up joystick (BUJX) interfacing facilities.
