Steering can also be done automatically and in this case either the Sperry Gyro-Compass or Gyrosyn Compass (all of which are discussed in Volume I) is used in the operation of the Tiller Pilot Steering Control. A model of the bridge unit is shown in Fig. 1. W h e n steering by H a n d , movement of the tiller in the horizontal slot to either starboard or port will result in a corresponding movement of the rudder to approximately half the angle to which the tiller or control lever is set. T h e control lever has a total movement of 120° which corresponds to a " hard-over " to " hard-over " movement of about 60° of rudder.

W h e n the h a n d potentiometer has stopped rotating and the wiper of the rudder potentiometer is in the same relative position as the wiper of the h a n d potentiometer a null condition is created in the amplifier.
