H5000 Instruments and Autopilot

The NEW H5000 instrument and autopilot systems combine unique sailing features with race-proven technology in a straightforward package. Developed for blue water cruisers and racing yachts alike, the range brings powerful system options to match your exacting requirements. From an ultra-fast CPU to a convenient web-browser interface access, full-color and custom displays and a dedicated autopilot controller, the H5000 system was developed to provide the best instrument and autopilot system available. The H5000 range comprises several units which network seamlessly with other onboard electronics including the Zeus range of Chartplotters.


The H5000 system is driven by a powerful Central Processing Unit (CPU) reaching speeds up to 50 times greater than its predecessor, with Hydra, Hercules and Performance level software options tailored for all users from serious cruisers to professional racers. It works with B&G’s proven H3000 Wind, Speed, Heel and meteorological sensors for a straightforward upgrades. The high resolution H5000 Graphic Display is highly intuitive and delivers information on a 5-inch bonded screen with fast, smooth display updates. The H5000 Race Display provides segmented text, numbers and target indicator for the race information you need in a glance.


The powerful H5000 Pilot brings the functionality and dedicated sailing algorithms of its record-breaking predecessor , supporting the exact needs of a performance sailboat and its crew – whether short-handed cruising or solo racing. In addition, the Pilot Controller provides dedicated access to autopilot functions.


B&G’s pioneering web-browser interface lets you connect your PC or tablet to the network for setup, calibration and control of every part of your H5000 system. Straightforward, it utilizes a familiar web browser interface to allow quick calibration of instruments, easy setup of displays and configuration of features for complete customization. Its powerful web-style interface can be accessed via PC, tablet or Smartphone. You can also access online product manuals, data backups and network diagnostics.

Sensor Compatibility

Note: To provide a sensible minimum dataset for typical use H5000 requires sensors for Speed, Depth, Wind, Heading and GPS






213 Horizondal Wind Sensor

Connects directly to CPU or an Analog Expansion module



213 Vertical Wind Sensor

Connects directly to CPU or an Analog Expansion module. Critical for performance yachts.


WS310 or WS320 Horizontal

Connects to a N2K Network via N2K interface or N2K Wireless base

Seek advice

  WS7xx series Vertical Connects to H5000 CPU via NMEA0183 or to the NMEA2000 via interface Seek Advice


NMEA 0183 or 2000

Normally compatible. Performance depends on many factors –

Consult a B&G specialist.

Boat Speed


Standard B&G 0-5V TTL input sensor. Connects directly to CPU or an Analog Expansion module.



NMEA 0183 or 2000

DST810 N2K sensor. Useful for interfacing with existing systems, but generally less responsive than a sensor with raw pulse output. OK for cruising, but performance yachts should avoid.

Seek advice



Solid State Compass 9 axis, output Heading (20hz), roll and pitch (10hz) over the NMEA2000 network



ZG100 GPS / Compass

The ZG100 GPS sensor contains a compass sensor which is suitable for basic use.

Good backup


NMEA 0183 or 2000

Normally compatible. Performance depends on many factors – consult a B&G specialist.

Consult a B&G specialist.


NMEA 0183 or 2000

e.g. DST800, DT800. A NMEA 0183 or NMEA 2000 source for depth is required. H5000 does not accept passive depth sensors.



ZG100 GPS sensor

10Hz GPS with SBAS provides high accuracy position, COG and SOG. Also provides Heading and Heel from internal compass.



Zeus or Vulcan MFD

H5000 can receive GPS data from the B&G Zeus series or Vulcan Chartplotter with build-in GPS antenna. (Check performance in chosen mounting position e.g. below decks on carbon boats may not work well)

Seek advice


NMEA 0183 or 2000

To connect 3rd party GPS units. e.g. MX, iStar

Consult a B&G specialist.
