Follow-up electronic steering based on CAN BUS technology, it is an extremely reliable system thanks to the redundancy of several elements and it allows to control the boat in a comfortable and intuitive way in every sea conditions.
Particularly recommended for displacement and semi-displacement hulls, it is a system that anyway offers a great flexibility of application and configuration with a variety of adjustable options.
The steering also easily integrates and interfaces with auto-pilot and other control systems on board.
Regardless of control station configuration, each system is composed of a hydraulic equipment, limited to connections between electro-hydraulic power unit and actuators into engines room, and an electric/electronic system for the rest of the units.
The electro-hydraulic power unit is provided with two electric motors, each one supplying its own hydraulic circuit through a dedicated solenoid valve group.
The hydraulic circuits flow in parallel and actuate the two cylinders for the movement rudder bars.
The system is also provided with a manual emergency pump to be actuated by commuting the by-pass valves in case of electric system failure.
Advantages of advanced technology
SafetyExtreme reliability and safety assured by system redundancy (double electronic control cards, double-motor power unit, double line of CAN BUS wires)
Independent power supply of main electric boards
Easy trouble-shooting and problem solving through the LCD display without a dedicated software and an external PC Manual emergency hydraulic steering
Possibility of electric activation of power unit’s motors and solenoid valves directly from the main boards in emergency conditions
FlexibilityGreat configuration flexibility in terms of number and type of control stations (type of panels, joy-stick, etc..)
Hydraulic connections confined to engines room
