JCS (Joystick Control System)
JCS (Joystick Control System)

The Yacht Controller JCS (Joystick Control System) can be used as a standalone system or integrated with the Yacht Controller DUAL BAND and/or Yacht Controller SMART wireless control systems.

With a simple movement of the hand, JCS allows simultaneous operation of the bow and stern thrusters and the engine throttles enabling you to moor and move the boat in any direction simply, precisely and without risk.

JCS is very easy to install, involving no difficult, invasive and costly work in the engine room.  It does not require cables to be installed along the length of the boat but, after identifying the type of electronic throttle control installed on board, it can be quickly installed near to the control station selected, either on the flybridge or in the saloon. Moreover, if the boat is already equipped with a Yacht Controller SMART or DUAL BAND system, installation is simply a matter of attaching a connector to the existing receiver.

Unlike other joysticks on the market, JCS offers maximum flexibility thanks to its automatic and manual modes. In automatic mode, the engines and the thrusters are used simultaneously to perform mooring manoeuvres even for those with less sailing experience. In manual mode, the thrusters can be activated as required - either with the engines or separately, for better control of the manoeuvre you wish to perform.

Yacht Controller JCS is also the only joystick system featuring a control panel with a sunlight-viewable LCD display, which gives a clear indication of motors and thrusters, showing you exactly what is activated in the manoeuvres being performed. The JCS panel can be used to configure the various operating modes, select language, units of measurement, accurate diagnostics and many other features. With throttle controls equipped with digital protocol, it can be used to manage acceleration, with different settings depending on the percentage of acceleration selected and its supply time.

The windlass (single or double) option allows you to remotely raise and lower the anchor, controlled from the JCS panel and includes a chain counter function. It can also be integrated with the SSS (Secure Sail System) function developed by MZ Electronic, which allows retrieval at standard speed during weighing of the anchor up to the last 3 metres of chain, subsequently slowing down progressively to retrieve the anchor at minimum speed. This prevents the risk of damage and protects the windlass from jerking that can cause breakage.
