[CA11] Type 2-Long Shaft paired with new Axiom
Greetings:
I had Raymarine rebuild the Type 2-Long Shaft, 12 volt and I now want to pair it with my new Axiom 9". My Bristol 41.1 weights about 23,000 pounds.
Am I correct that I only need EV Sensor Core and an ACU-400?
I plan to use the Axiom and Smart Controller in place of a control head.
Thanks!

Welcome to the Raymarine Forum pawhitman,

Q. Am I correct that I only need EV Sensor Core and an ACU-400?
A. While an autopilot control head is not required to for steering to locked heading (AUTO mode) or following a course line to a waypoint (TRACK mode), an autopilot control head (p70S) is required for operating an Evolution autopilot in Wind Vane mode (see Chapter 9.5: Wind Vane Mode (for sail boats) of the p70S & p70RS Autopilot Control Head Installation and Operation Instructions. Similarly, power boats seeking to operate in power steering mode or follow fishing patterns will require a p70RS or p70RS / p70S autopilot control head respectively.

Am I correct that the ACU-400 is the right unit for my boat?

pawhitman,

An ACU-400 is indeed required for use with a Type 2 linear drive.
