The steering gear is a key mechanism for steering a ship's rudder. It consists of a tiller connected to the rudder by a system of cables and pulleys. By turning the tiller, the pilot can change the direction of the boat. The device can be operated manually or automatically by means of an autopilot system. Regular maintenance of the device is essential for safe and efficient navigation.
The hydraulic unit is used to control the ship with a tiller or a joystick. Interfaced with the autopilot, the central bar is calculated according to the displacement of the actuator.
