ZF Marine CruiseCommand Offers Plug-n-Play Control

Saturday, March 03, 2001
ZF Marine introduces a new plug-n-play CruiseCommand control that is designed to offer significant savings in installation and maintenance costs. The new system, developed by engineers at ZF Mathers LLC for vessels with electronic engines and solenoid gears, will be available for delivery in April. Plug-in connections and an external keypad setup simplify processes for installing and configuring the controls. Built-in features include an LED troubleshooting display, synchronization and docking/trolling (available as a shift-only or shift-and-speed option). The software which makes CruiseCommand work is packed into a watertight, pluggable enclosure which measures just 8.8 x 10.5 x 2.5-in. (22.3 x 26.6 x 6.1cm), reducing space requirements. Because the enclosure never needs opening, boat builders can realize additional space savings by eliminating allowances for working around the processor. CruiseCommand offers single-lever multi-station capability, speed/shift sequencing protection, and station-in-command indicators and is available with a variety of control heads, including the ZF Mathers MC 2000 series and hand-held remote.
