New Version Electronic Control Levers from Lilaas

Press Release
Wednesday, May 01, 2013

Lilaas AS introduce its electronically-controlled LO1 lever technology, with integration they believe is unique in the marine market.

The company’s products range from simple, one-axis control levers in different sizes, hand wheels and rudder controls to azimuthing control units and multi-axis joysticks.  The additions to the range complete a portfolio of solutions to meet wide-ranging operator requirements for azimuth, thruster and propulsion control.

Developed in-house by the Lilaas design team, the new versions are distinguishable from the over-arching LO1 lever profile. However, rather than the resulting ‘operator-friendly’ feel, Lilaas is drawing attention to the ground-breaking integrated electronics shaft system within the new models.

Terje Akerholt, Lilaas Sales and Marketing Manager, says: “This will give end users and system integrators a number of significant advantages. When an electronic shaft system is used to control the motors a large external box is also needed, one for each lever, which is a very expensive solution. With the latest option for the LO1 we will be able to deliver levers with motors and electronic shaft system integrated.”

As well as significant space savings and a reduction in cabling and hardware costs, the solution will simplify maintenance. Furthermore it will make the LO1 lever more easily assimilated into customer systems. Mr Akerholt says: “It is expensive and sometimes complex for customers to develop and maintain their own electronic shaft system. Using our new integrated solution, this is no longer required.”

The electronic LO1 lever, which is available with or without a display, communicates either via an open CAN BUS protocol or standard analogue signals. Lilaas has already prepared LO1 hardware for other interfaces, including Profibus, Ethernet and USB, and the final software solutions for these options will be developed in collaboration with customers.
