    Product description

    Electronic control systems Series 4500 combine mechatronic solutions and digital communication technologies which permit to build modular systems, flexible, reliable and easy to install.

    Just a few devices create a complete electronic control system. The electronic system fundamentally consists of 4 elements which vary in amount and type, depending on installation requirements:

    • control stations
    • actuators
    • data transmission cables to connect together actuators and control stations
    • cables between actuator and motor and between actuator and gearbox.

    The link between the various devices is via a simple 4-pin cable that carries all the information thru digital CANBus communication. In case of motors with mechanical interface, push-pull cables transfer the motion from the actuators to the throttle on the motor and on the gearbox. In the case of motors and gearboxes with electronic interface, a simple electrical wire performs their connection to the actuator. On all Flexball electronic control systems can be mounted either lever Series 3500 or lever Series 4500. The systems are configured to interface to different types of motors and gearboxes and their possible combinations.

    Explanatory Video

    1st-Relief shows in this video the conversion of a yacht engine control from a mechanical actuator to an electrical system (powered by Flexball) based on a catamaran double engine system. Three variants are shown in this video:

    2 engines, 1 control head
    2 engines, 2 control heads
    2 engines, 2 control heads and full remote control
