Optional Rudder Feedback Unit

One of the most complex and time-consuming aspects of autopilot installation is fitting the rudder feedback unit, ensuring that the geometry matches the full range of rudder movement.  The Octopus rudder feedback unit solves these problems as it mounts directly to the drive unit itself.


A range of RFBs to suit most common autopilot brands is available - click "Accessories" below for more information.

Type S Behind Dash Drive - The Straight shaft drive unit replaces the manual drive used on cable steered boats and is mounted directly behind the dash. The drive is directly compatible with the Morse 290 steering helm but comes with its own bezel kit and can be retrofitted in most installations using the cable and steering wheel from the manual steering helm on the boat.

Type T Tilit Dash Drive - This drive unit replaces a manual Tilt drive and is mounted directly behind the dash, but still allows the angle of the steering wheel to be changed. It uses the front end from Teleflex SH91800 (not supplied).
