Follow On Tiller Controllers

Remote Steering and Pilot Control

Raymarine’s Follow-On Tiller controller brings power steering to remote and secondary control stations anywhere onboard. The Follow-On Tiller is a simple add-on control unit for Raymarine Evolution autopilot systems and is designed for power cruising yachts or commercial vessels. With a single button press, the tiller activates Evolution’s Power Steer mode, enabling captains to send precise steering angle commands to the rudder up to 35°.

Key Features

  • The intuitive design lets captains make precise steering adjustments with a simple turn of the lever or dial.
  • Brings precision power steering control to remote locations and auxiliary maneuvering stations
  • Sleek, no dial, low profile design enables fits to just about anywhere, including pilot house helm chairs
  • Selectable proportional or bang-bang modes for steering or maneuvering applications
  • Simple SeaTalkng networking supports up to 4 remote tiller stations
  • Compatible with Evolution™ autopilot systems for power boats

Power Steering Options

Follow On Tiller controllers are available in 2 different models with slightly different modes of operation.      

  • Choose the Standby-Power Steer-Standby (A80532) variant for applications where you would like remote steering capability without engaging or disengaging the autopilot. Touching the activation button on the tiller controller enables Power Steer mode of the autopilot in standby mode and gives full control of rudder movement. Touching the activation button again returns the autopilot to Standby mode.
  • Choose the Auto-Power Steer-Auto (A80602) variant to make course adjustments under autopilot control. Touching the activation button will change the autopilot's status from automatic mode (engaged) to Power Steer mode, giving the captain manual control of rudder movement. Touching the activation button again returns the autopilot to Auto mode.

Two Operation Modes

The controller supports both Follow-Up and Non-Follow up modes for maximum flexibility. The controller comes pre-fitted with a return spring to bring the controller back to the 0° center position automatically upon release. The return spring can be removed if desired.

In Follow-Up-Mode the rudder follows the tiller precisely. When the tiller is released or set to 0° the rudder is set to amidships. In Non-Follow-Up mode, the rudder remains at the angle set when the controller is released or set to 0° and requires the operator to manually correct to amidships. 

Follow On Tiller Options

Choose between Standby-Power Steer-Standby operation, or Auto-Power Steer-Auto operation.
