The Autopilot mode enables the vessel to steer along a selected course by accurately and automatically controlling the vessel's heading. This mode is using the vessel's propellers and rudders or azimuth thrusters. The Autopilot (Heading control system) has a mark of conformity (wheelmark) as per MED requirements. The vessel speed is controlled from the joystick on the operator's panel or from manual levers (requires the K-Thrust thruster control system). Reference made also to these sections of the relevant K-Pos (OS) Operator Manual' - Sensors; Joystick settings; Changing the heading setpoint; Alarm limits dialog box - Position page (heading limits); Heading dialog box - Rate Of Turn page; Thruster Allocation dialog box.
