Conversion from Simrad to Raymarine

Conversion from Simrad to Raymarine
I currently have an older Simrad AP11 autopilot on a hydraulically steered inboard. The controller is getting hard to read so I am wondering if I could change out the electronics to a Raymarine unit andkeep the Simrad hydraulic pump.

Thanks

Welcome to the Raymarine Forum rlschmidt,

It may indeed be possible to use the currently installed hydraulic pump. In order to properly specify a compatible Evolution autopilot ACU, it would be necessary to know the model of hydraulic pump which is presently installed onboard the boat.

The pump is a SIMRAD RPU80. The boat also has power steering assist on the out drive.

Bob,

A SIMRAD RPU80 should be mated to an ACU200 Actuator Control Unit which is part of the T70156 EV-200 Evolution Power Pilot.

OK thanks. I thought that would be a correct match. Thanks for looking into this, it looks like the best upgrade path.
