[LW11] Difference in waves between 2000 and 100
Have taken part in different forums about autopilots and 2000 get low points when sailing in waves and 100 high points.
How comes this difference?
What is the technical difference behind this?
Can 2000 be trimmed to close the gap?

RE: [LW11] Difference in waves between 2000 and 100
Good morning,

Thank you for your post.

Can you clarify your query to enable answering your questions accurately.

Have taken part in different forums about autopilots and 2000 get low points when sailing in waves and 100 high points.

Are you referring to the ST2000 and ST1000 tiller pilots?

What do you mean by high and low points? Can you explain or describe the difference in what you are referring to?

The ST2000 is a faster operating tiller pilot due to different internal hardware to the ST1000 on the drive mechanism. The ST2000 is designed for heavier vessels than the ST1000, therefore you would expect the ST2000 to perform in a stronger fashion than the ST1000.

Many Thanks
Louise

The question is the ability to handle sea waves. The products are ST 2000 and EVO 100 both for tiller. A big difference have been noticed by users in Sweden. And I would like to get information about in what the technical difference are which can explain this mayor difference. Some have tested both on the same boat and seen a mayor difference in ability to cope with waves. No one has posted that they have got ST 2000 to work properly in waves

Hi,

My question is about perfermance in sea waves.
The products in the question are ST 2000 and EVO 100 tiller.
At swedish forums (outside Raymarine) all seams disappointed with ST 2000 and happy with EVO 100 when it comes to performance in sea waves. One person had even tested both on the same boat with totaly different results.

Have this difference a reason in the design?

Is it possible to make adjustments in the settings on ST 2000 to get a similar performance as EVO 100?

Is ST 2000 more intended for flat water and other less demanding tasks?

Hi,

The products I refer to is EVO 100 and ST 2000.
The question is why EVO 100 by so many is greatly prefered when it comes to sailing in sea waves. What is it technical which makes the differens in performance compared with ST 2000? Are there ways to adjust ST 2000 so it gives similar performance?

Good morning,

The ST2000 is an entry level tiller pilot and is one complete and has a slower heading sensor and less functionality than the EV100. The EV100 is a more advanced pilot system with newer technology and has a 10 hertz heading sensor with a separate course computer, drive and control head.

The ST2000 has the power to drive a vessel with a displacement of up to 4500kg. The EV100 tiller can drive a vessel with a displacement of up to 6000kg and the EV100 wheel pilot can drive a vessel with a displacement of up to 7500kg.

The ST2000 cannot be configured to give the same performance as the EV100 and they are very different prodicts. The EV100 will always give better performance, therefore the reviews you are reading are accurate

Many Thanks
Louise
