The RSCU-mk3 comes with potentiometers and/or micro switches for the electrical interface with the propulsion- and steering control systems. It is available with a IP42 or IP56 rating, and 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.
The RSCU-mk3.4 is the stepper motorized equivalent of the mk3 model, with slightly larger dimensions of 160x160mm, and an increased built-in depth due to the presence of 2 stepper motors and their associated reference potentiometers. The default IP-rating is IP56. The stepper motors are driven by 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 fifth generation of Electric Shaft systems, ELAS-5. The CUBI also offers an amount of I/O’s for the human-machine interface i.e. signal lamps, pushbuttons and buzzers.
The RSCU-Mk3’s are type-approved by ABS, BV, CCS, DNV-GL, LRS, NKK , RINA and RMRS.
