[CA11] Rudder Angle sensor with EV-1
I just installed a new autopilot system that consists of a p70s, EV-1, ACU-400 and a Type-2 chain drive and I am curious I really require the rudder angle sensor. The boat the system is installed on was built well before rudder angle sensors and after days of head scratching, we cant find a good place to mount it.

For what it is worth, this system is connected to a larger Raymarine system over Seatalkng which includes 2 Axiom Pros, wind/speed/depth, AIS and several other goodies.

RE: [CA11] Rudder Angle sensor with EV-1
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum memornix,

Most boats do not require installation of a rudder reference transducer when using an Evolution autopilot. However, should the performance of the autopilot not be satisfactory, then it would typically be recommended that the rudder reference transducer be installed. For maximum performance of an autopilot, it is considered to be a best installation practice to install a rudder reference transducer.
