The flexible remote control for controllable pitch propellers
Passenger ships and utility vessels can count on reliable navigation thanks to the Marex OS VBR for Voith-Schneider propellers. Developed in close collaboration with Voith Turbo Marine, the Marex OS VBR is ideal for Voith-Schneider propellers, controllable pitch propellers, and rudder propellers for new ships or retrofits.
The control converts the operator's control commands into CAN bus signals. Redundant systems are provided with an additional potentiometer. The commands which are entered by means of the keys and the feedback to the lamps are transmitted intelligently to both systems. The signals are processed according to the time and pitch curves in store and transmitted to automatic proportional valves or actuators. Alternatively, the signals can be transmitted to the PLC which will then actuate the shaft adjustment.
