Dockmate now able to interface directly with Ultraflex Electronic Engine Controls

Date: 09-Apr-2019

 

Dockmate, the affordable new wireless control system that enables skippers to remotely control their engines and other controls without losing any feeling or response time, can now interface directly with popular Ultraflex electronic engine controls.

The new CAN Bus interface, which directly connects the Dockmate system and Ultraflex electronic engine controls, enables complete, wireless, fingertip control over single or twin engines, gearboxes and throttle controls, bow and stern thrusters, anchor winches and even the ship’s horn.

In addition, Dockmate’s new wireless charging pad can wirelessly charge not only the handy Dockmate Twist remote but also later model Samsung and Apple phones.

Dockmate allows skippers to leave their helm station, with its often restricted view, and get a much closer look at their surroundings, while remaining in total control. This is especially useful in marinas and other tight quarters’ situations, enabling skippers to enjoy stress-free docking, regardless of the conditions.

Using “next generation,” state of the art "fail safe" technology, Dockmate has a wide operating range. It can connect in three different ways: through analogue, digitally through CAN Bus technology or via the gearbox interface.

Dockmate is compatible with Volvo IPS and Zeus Pod systems and can also remotely control dynamic positioning functions.

Its modular design enables functions to be added at any time and Dockmate comes with a 3-year factory warranty.

There are four Dockmate wireless remote control systems: Single, Twin, Twist 3-axis joystick with proportional control and Twist IPS for Volvo Penta IPS or Zeus pods. All are now available through Lusty & Blundell.
