Back in 1967 we developed the AutoChief I, the first remote control system for low speed propulsion plants. By 2019 more than 10 000 remote control systems have been delivered to vessels all over the world, including approximately 6500 AutoChief® C20 and 600 systems.
AutoChief® has become a trademark for safe and efficient propulsion control.
The AutoChief 600 propulsion control system is a complete control and safety systems suitable for all 2 and 4 stroke engines, both fixed and controllable pitch propellers.
The system is available for single and dual propulsion lines. It features a modular design, and can easily be configured for various propulsion configurations. The AutoChief® features the same distributed and fully redundant architecture as our machinery automation systems, with no additional emergency telegraph system required.
Designed in accordance with the requirements of: DNV, LRS, BV, GL, RINA, NK, ABS, KR, RMR, CCS and All low speed engines from MAN B&W, WinGD and J-Eng, Dual Fuel & Single Fuel.
