South Atlantic Self Steering Wind Vane S - 470
The self steering gear S 470 is a fast and efficient steering system. The servo-pendulum self steering consists of a [sensor-vane] which transmits the change in the wind direction to the windvane rudder. The vane-to-servo-pendulum linkage uses a horizontal stainless-steel "Z bar" that reduces the number of moving parts. The windvane rudder moves laterally on reception of the signal. The rudder is attached to the tiller by [lines] which move the tiller or wheel that steer the sail boat.
