....The Classic Autopilot!
|The 3000 has become a
classic. Long a favorite of single handed circumnavigators and coastal
cruisers alike, the 3000 continues its tradition of simplicity,
ruggedness, and performance.
True proportional rate and position
electronics employing four complete feedback loops makes the pilot steer
just like a helmsman even in the following seas. Just the right amount
of rudder at just the right rate to keep you on course.
|The 3000 is a unique pilot
highly sensitive to heading changes, quick enough for today's
lighter boats, powerful enough to steer 80 foot vessels in big
quartering seas, yet uses far less electrical power than other
||It adapts to changing wind
and sea conditions and boat speed without operator adjustment. Will
handle your vessel from bare steerage way to surfing down waves
without complicated adjustments.
Unique MOS-FET motor drive electronics replace the most failure prone part
of an autopilot with a highly redundant architecture which has
demonstrated MTBF of 1,000 years. This drivers high efficiency contributes
to the pilots low power consumption.
A unique pilot- highly
sensitive to heading changes, quick enough for today's ultra-light
boats, powerful enough to steer 80 foot vessels in big quartering seas, yet uses far less electrical power than other
Patented AUTO-TRIM is the most accurate trim system
available and automatically holds your vessel on course regardless of trim
The 3000 incorporates a magnetometer grade flux gate compass utilizing
Alpha's unique HYDRO-STASIS gimbal system, which isolates the sensor
from vessel roll and pitch, is included. This system totally eliminates
the need to average compass output. This technology unique to Alpha
Pilots increases helm response and dramatically improves down wind
performance. The 3000 control system can be connected to any of Alpha's
mechanical linear drive units, demand hydraulic pumps, or exclusive
proportional spool valve for connection to closed center hydraulic power
