Combining the best in ship control theory and taking advantage of modern electronic technology, Sperry has produced a new line of high reliability, all solid-state automatic pilots and accessories, called the "600" series. Utilising a modular design technique, three different Heading Selectors and a Common Control Computer provide three basic models: the SRP660, SRP670, and SRP680 configurations. Heading data from many compasses-either gyro or magnetic or both-can be accommodated. The automatic pilots control most, if not all, steering gears on the market today using solid-state output switches, thereby avoiding less reliable relays.
