  • Application domain:

    for ships

  • Type:



The Mega-Guard Heading Control System (HCS) automatically controls vessel's heading by controlling the rudders. The Heading Control System fulfills the rules of classification societies and wheelmark. The reliable autopilot supports single rudders and twin
independent rudders.

The HCS is build-up with the following components:

HCS Operator Panel
HCS Controller

Both modules are inter-connected by a redundant Ethernet link.

The HCS Operator Panel includes an intuitive heading turning knob with integrated Accept function and a TFT touchscreen. Main operator modes are selected by pushbuttons and advanced operator modes are adjusted through touchscreen.

The HCS Controller acts as a stand-alone heading controller with interfaces to various sensors (heading, position, speed, wind, depth) and includes an analog output for Rudder Setpoint.
