Rudder Control

Download Rudder.ocx Visual Studio Control

The Rudder Control matches the NMEA sentence $..RSA and shows the angle of the rudder sensor on the rudder (the starboard rudder in dual systems). You may pass the NMEA sentence to the control via the RSA Method, or use the RudderAngle Property.

To conform with the NMEA $..RSA protocol, a positive rudder angle is used for helm to starboard, and a negative rudder angle is for helm to port.
The Twilight and Night Properties match the color scheme of the other controls in the NMEA Sage Control Suite.
While it is unlikely you will ever need to plot a rudder angle greater than 40 degrees, the control allows you to do so.
The control is also resizable, and the indicator color may be changed.
