Raymarine Evolution EV2 Sensor Core

At the centre of every Evolution system is the intelligent EV sensor core, a 9-axis sensor that monitors vessel motion in all three dimensions. The innovative EV sensor core combines advanced solid-state sensors with the Evolution autopilot processor into a single easy-to-install housing. Mount the EV sensor core above or below decks, the rugged enclosure is fully sealed and built to IPX6 and IPX7 waterproofing and submersion standards.

Designed for the latest drive-by-wire steering system, the EV-2 connects directly to Raymarine’s SeaTalkng bus and also features a dedicated CAN Bus port for direct connection to steer-by-wire steering systems like ZF Pod Drives, Volvo IPS* and Teleflex Optimus systems. The single CAN Bus connection to the EV-2 eliminates the need for an ACU, further simplifying installation.


  • Precision monitoring of heading, pitch, roll, and yaw allowing the autopilot to evolve instantly as sea conditions and vessel dynamics change.
  • Flexible installation options. Mount above or below deck.
  • Simple SeaTalkng connectivity to the control head and ACU.
  • Solid state sensor technology delivers dynamic accuracy to within 2 degrees in all conditions.
  • Auto-compensation for on board magnetic fields and reliable heading accuracy in the northern and southern extremes.
  • Fast and reliable heading data for MARPA, radar overlay, and heading modes on Raymarine multifunction displays.
