Yacht Controller - new and innovative Joystick JCS Plus

Tuesday, December 10, 2013

If you are looking for a joystick that gives you even more comfort, precision and safety combined with a new, captivating design, JCS Plus is the one for you. It joins the popular and unique Yacht Controller wireless remote control mooring systems, Dual Band and Smart, and can be used alone or integrated with them. By simply moving your hand, the Joystick JCS allows simultaneous operation of the motors and the bow and stern thrusters and enables you to move the boat in any direction simply, without risk and danger, precisely and with total ease. 

Easy to install 
Yacht Controller JCS Plus is very easy to install, with no difficult, invasive and costly work involved in the engine room; cables do not have to be installed along the length of the boat but, after identifying the type of electronic throttle control installed on board, it is quickly installed close to the selected control station, either on the flybridge or in the saloon.

Automatic and manual modes 
If the boat is already equipped with a Yacht Controller Smart or Dual Band system, it can be installed simply by attaching a connector to the receiver already installed aboard. With its automatic and manual modes, JCS Plus offers maximum flexibility. In automatic mode, the motors and the thrusters are used simultaneously to make mooring easier even for those who do not have much sailing experience, whereas in manual mode, you can activate the thrusters and the engines as required, both together or separately, for better control of the manoeuvre you wish to perform. 

Ergonomic three-axis knob 
JCS Plus has a three-axis knob with an ergonomic, innovative design that is the result of advanced research with an handle that makes manoeuvres safe and precise thanks to the knob’s high grip covering surface and its ergonomic shape. Two buttons on the joystick can be used to control the bow and stern thrusters. Manoeuvres are also made easier thanks to the JCS Plus panel which with a clear, practical drawing of the boat showing the thrusters and the engines helps you understand which functions are activated during the manoeuvres.
