The core business of Kwant Controls is the design and manufacturing of various types of control units for the electrical remote control of practically all kinds of propulsion and steering devices, such as: traditional main engine/clutch/CPP-FPP shaft lines, tunnel thrusters, azimuthal thrusters, rudders and water jets.


The RSCU-H96 and H144 come with potentiometers and/or micro switches for the electrical interface with the propulsion- and steering control systems. The default IP-rating is IP56, with the possibility to limit the speed lever travel and/or steering angle according to your requirements. Palpable stops (detents) can be supplied in both sections.

Both models are available with stepper servo motors, driven by either:

  • An external Control Unit to Bus Interface module (‘CUBI’). This module is the interface to the (redundant) CAN bus, which forms the basis for the Electric Shaft system of the( fifth generation), ELAS-5. The CUBI also offers an (limited) amount of I/O for the human-machine interface i.e. signal lamps, pushbuttons and buzzers.
  • Integrated CAN electronics (I-CAN) offering a direct CAN-Open machinery interface. This option requires the presence of a CAN bus master station.

IP level: IP56

All executions are type-approved by ABS, BV, CCS, DNV, LRS, NKK , RINA and RMRS.
