Improved handling through electric steering
The electric steering system SteerCommand™, brings significant innovation into the marine market, where hydraulic and even mechanical steering systems are commonplace. ZF SteerCommand™ allows for more precise steering and safer operation when operating your pleasure boat, thanks to a patented reactive electronic force feedback system at the steering wheel specially designed by ZF. ZF SteerCommand™ can be fully integrated into the propulsion systems offered by ZF Marine for all types of vessels.
Increased precision and safety while steering
Enhanced control with force feedback system at the steering wheel
