B&G Autopilot Computer NAC-3.

The mainstream autopilot computer for vessels over 10m. The NAC3 has a high current ability, of 30 amp continuous, or 50 amp  max. This means it can run a large drive unit, mechanical or hydraulic.  The NAC3 is for both power and sailing vessels. This computer is normally installed with Triton, Triton 2, or multi-function displays with autopilot ability. This includes the B&G Vulcan and Zeus3 series displays.
