Abstract:
Several factors have driven the development of various electronic marine shift/throttle control systems in recent years. The benefits of marine electronic shift/throttle systems are increased cycle life, reduced maintenance requirements, and decreased installation concerns. Design considerations include selection of a microprocessor system, communication between nodes, operator feedback, and protocols for various mode selections.A recent development in marine electronic technology uses a distributed microprocessor approach that eliminates the negative factors associated with mechanical controls while actually improving operator feedback. The system's serial communication also allows for expansions into intelligent systems applications. This technology shows promise for use in industrial, automotive, and military applications.
