    Can anyone tell me if the control/display head for a RayMarine ST6001+
    can be used to drive an actuator directly, if done so thru relays?

    I ask because it appears that the ST5001 and ST4000 do exactly that, for
    low current devices.

    My application: I have an old, reliable BenMar rotary actuator that is
    built like a brick [email protected]#$house, but the control panel in the cockpit is
    getting old and could use upgrading.

    Bob:

    I am pretty sure that the ST6001 is simply a display/control head. You need
    a course computer such as an S1, 2 or 3 to function as an autopilot with the
    ST6001.

    The ST5000 series were as you say an integrated display/course computer, but
    not the ST6001.
