Electric Mechanical Steering System (EMS)
Based on decade experience and years extensive research, this
innovative steering system was newly developed to meet the demand of
more reliable and simpler steering system.
It’s a compact design, built with rugged structure, comprises reliable
brushless DC motors, precise planetary reduction gearbox, and high
efficient solid ball screw, which acting as actuator drives rudder tiller arm.
The system meets safety regulations of main steering gear by
incorporating two prime drivers (motors) from different power sources, in
which case one motor fails, the other can still run to drive rudder tiller so
as to keep steering capacity.
Steering control can be activated by joystick or wheel at cockpit, for
steering wheel, there will be options to choose for follow up or non-follow
up steering, even steering force or speed could be sensed via built in
micro-chip electronic control unit (ECU) so the rudder responses
accordingly, which is the so call “active steering”.
Steering Gear Series:
1. Better Performance &
2. No Hydraulic Oil & Pipes
3. Environmental Friendly
4. Fast Responsible
5. Simple & Light
6. Easy Installation & Minimum
7. Reduced Maintenance
This new generation electric mechanical steering system surpass traditional hydraulic or mechanical
steering systems through simple & compact design, less power consumption and fast active response,
make it ideal choice for new build or retrofit ships within suitable range among yachts, patrol boats, crew
boats, fishing boats and other recreation crafts, and small merchant vessels as well.
