Yacht Controller JCS - Joystick Control System
YACHT CONTROLLER JOYSTICK "JCS" can be used alone or integrated with our unique and proven Yacht Controller wireless system.
With a simple movement of the hand, the Yacht Controller Joystick JCS allows simultaneous operation of the engines and of the bow and stern thrusters, enabling you to maneuver and move your boat in any direction securely, precisely, and simply, with total ease.
YACHT CONTROLLER JCS is a plug-and-play system convenient to install, without any invasive and costly work in the engine room; and does not require cables to be installed along the length of the boat. Once the type of electronic on-board controls are identified, it is installed quickly in proximity to the control station selected, either on the flybridge or in the salon. On Boats already equipped with a YACHT CONTROLLER system, it can be installed by connecting to the Yacht Controller receiver already on-board.
YACHT CONTROLLER JCS offers maximum flexibility thanks to its automatic and manual modes. In automatic mode, the motors and the thrusters are used simultaneously to facilitate maneuvers even for those with minimum experience. In manual mode, the thrusters can be activated as required, either together with the motors or separately, for better control of the maneuver you wish to perform with perfect precision and ease.
YACHT CONTROLLER JCS is equipped with a control panel with LCD screen, visible in sunlight, which has a clear and practical design of the boat with an indication of engines and thrusters, showing you exactly what is activated in the maneuvers being performed. The JCS panel can be used to configure the various operating modes, select language, units of measurement, accurate diagnostics and many other features. With electronic throttle controls equipped with digital protocol, it can be used to manage acceleration, with different settings depending on the percentage of acceleration selected and its run time. If the windlass (single or double) option is present, the weighing / lowering function with chain counter can be controlled f rom the JCS panel. It can also be integrated to allow retrieval at standard speed during weighing of the anchor up to the last 10 feet of chain, slowing down progressively to retrieve the anchor at minimum speed thereby preventing the risk of damage to the windlass from harmful jerking which can cause breakage. The system will stop the anchor when totally weighed.
The Yacht Controller JCS joystick is all this: another essential aid for managing your boat, developed by Yacht Controller providing "innovative technology for the marine industry".
Rapid and secure installation is accomplished by connecting the JCS control panel in a plug-and-play manner to the electronic control head and to the thruster and anchor windlass switches and/or joystick. To install JCS on board boats already fitted with YC Dual Band; attach the JCS connector to the existing Yacht Controller receiver, power it up and the system is ready to use.
Yacht Controller JCS is available for most types of electronic controls currently on the market.
The JCS system has a two year warranty and must only be installed by authorized Yacht Controller technicians.
The JCS system can be switched off at any time and all controls will then return to the neutral position.
