Octopus Autopilot Pump Type 1 Adjustable Reversing 12V Up To 15 CI Cylinder Product Description

The unique Octopus piston pump delivers over twice the hydraulic output per watt of input than a standard hydraulic gear pump. Gear pumps leak oil between the gears, while a piston (such as used in car engines) does not. This means the piston pump will place the cylinder ram exactly where it is required, positioning the rudder accurately. This gives far sharper steering, reducing unnecessary course corrections meaning battery consumption on Octopus pumps is up to half that of other pumps. Leading autopilot manufacturers choose Octopus pumps for their non RFB pilot systems which do not have a Rudder Feedback unit. Previously, slop in the system caused by gear leakage meant that a Rudder Feedback unit was necessary to tell the pilot the exact rudder position. As Octopus pumps will always bring the ram back to the required position the Rudder Feedback unit is not required, which also greatly simplifies installation.

Autopilot Pump Type 1 Adjustable Reversing 12V Up To 15 CI Cylinder

TWICE THE POWER

The unique Octopus piston pump delivers over twice the hydraulic output per watt of input than a standard hydraulic gear pump.

HALF THE POWER CONSUMPTION

Gear pumps leak oil between the gears, while a piston (such as used in car engines) does not.  This means the piston pump will place the cylinder ram exactly where it is required, positioning the rudder accurately.  This gives far sharper steering, reducingunnecessary course corrections meaning battery consumption on Octopus pumps is up to half that of other pumps.

PINPOINT ACCURACY

Leading autopilot manufacturers choose Octopus pumps for their non RFB pilot systems which do not have a Rudder Feedback unit. Previously, slop in the system caused by gear leakage meant that a Rudder Feedback unit was necessary to tell the pilot the exact rudder position. As Octopus pumps will always bring the ram back to the required position the Rudder Feedback unit is not required, which also greatly simplifies installation.

SAVE ON INSTALLATION COSTS

A professional installation should always have a method of isolating the pump from the steering system - Octopus pumps feature inbuilt shut off valves in the pump manifold.

ADJUSTABLE FLOW RATE

A pump that does not have variable flow (unless dedicated to a range of cylinders such as our fixed 0.8L pump) will be operating too fast or too slow in 90% of cases.  Autopilot manufacturers get around this problem by adjusting the output to the pump to compensate, which either forces the pump to operate for longer periods of time which increases power consumption and wear on the parts, or it will operate at high pressure for short periods of time - also putting unnecessary strain and wear on the system.

Octopus Variable Flow Reversing Pumps precisely control the speed of the ram, reducing unnecessary battery consumption, pressure, strain and wear on the hydraulic system.

Getting the best steering performance for the boat. The flow rate of the pump can be set to get the best hard over time (cylinder ram speed) for the particular boat. 

Features:

  • Reliable - Piston pump technology with only three moving parts
  • Twice the Power - Delivers over twice the hydraulic output per watt of input
  • Half the Power Consumption - Accurate ram positioning means fewer course corrections
  • Adjustable Flow Rate - Configure performance to suit your vessel
  • Easy Servicing - Shut off valves allow removal without draining steering system


Type 1 autopilot pump can be switched to 12V, and the power of up to 18 CI cylinders is twice that of the unique Octopus piston pump. The hydraulic output per watt is more than twice that of a standard hydraulic gear pump. Semi-energy-consuming gear pumps will leak oil between gears, but pistons (such as those used in car engines) will not leak. This means that the piston pump accurately places the cylinder plunger in the desired position, thereby accurately positioning the rudder. This provides clearer steering and reduces unnecessary heading corrections, which means that the battery consumption of the Octopus pump is half that of other pumps. Autopilot manufacturers with leading positioning accuracy will choose octopus pumps for non-RFB pilot systems without steering gear feedback. Previously, the system tilted due to gear leakage, which meant that a rudder feedback unit had to be used to inform the pilot of the exact rudder position. Since the octopus pump always brings the plunger back to the desired position, no rudder feedback unit is required, which greatly simplifies the installation process. Save installation costs Professional installers should always use the method of isolating the pump from the steering system-the octopus pump has a built-in shut-off valve in the main pipe of the pump. Pumps with adjustable flow and no variable flow (unless dedicated to a certain range of cylinders, such as our fixed 0.8L pump) will run too fast or too slow in 90% of the cases. The autopilot manufacturer makes adjustments to solve this problem
