Can a Raymarine x5 Autopilot Run a Hydraulic Pump?


I have a Raymarine X5 wheel autopilot. Is it possible to use the X5 autopilot to drive a hydraulic pump for a beefier autopilot?


Hi Rob, in terms of the autopilot, unfortunately the Raymarine x5 cannot drive a hydraulic pump. You'll need to get a new course computer (x10, x20, or x30 depending on your displacement). You can keep the ST-6001 control head.
