Garmin Reactor 40 Autopilot With SmartPump v2 Features


Solid-state 9-axis AHRS

With its advanced solid-state 9-axis Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS), you can mount Reactor 40 nearly anywhere, in any orientation. This new system also helps minimise  rudder movement, heading error, course deviation and power consumption.

Reacts to Conditions

The Reactor 40 autopilot actually reacts to the sea to hold your course even when the boat is pitching and rolling.

Shadow Drive Technology

The Reactor 40 autopilot features patented Shadow Drive technology. The Shadow Drive system automatically disengages the autopilot if the helm is turned, giving you the freedom to manoeuver the boat. The autopilot automatically re-engages when you hold a steady course.

One SmartPump

The Reactor 40 autopilot with SmartPump v2 works for most boats. It provides complete control in a smaller size with better thermal performance, higher reliability and lower power consumption. It also includes color-coded connectors to make it easy to install. 

Limit the Maximum Flow Rate

Reactor 40 with SmartPump v2 automatically adjusts the maximum flow rate for a particular boat from 0 to 2.4 L per minute. It also uses a brushless motor, which provides increased reliability, longer pump life, reduced power consumption, quiet operation, a smaller package, improved thermal performance and higher efficiency.

Eliminate Risk of Rudder “Hard Over”

The Reactor 40 autopilot with SmartPump v2 is a complete autopilot package. SmartPump v2 is a single integrated unit comprised of a motor drive circuit with the pump in a single assembly. Equipped with Intelligent Rudder Rate Technology (IRRT), it slows the rudder rate when the vessel is at high speeds and speeds up rudder rate when the vessel is at lower speeds to provide optimal performance and safety in all conditions. The brushless motor drive eliminates the risk of rudder “hard over” due to hardware or software failures.

Longer Lasting System

The SmartPump v2 is engineered from corrosion-resistant components, including anodized aluminum and nickel-plated steel parts.

Advanced Autopilot Technology

With a Reactor 40 with SmartPump v2 you have control wherever you are on the boat. In addition to holding its course in virtually all weather and wind conditions, the system can smoothly perform a variety of pre-programmed trolling and search procedures.
