In development for more than a decade, the technology starts with the required Teleflex electronic power-steering subsystem. It includes the electronic helm, hydraulic pumps, control module and display to operate the smart steering cylinders mounted to each engine. Tie bars are eliminated, so the engines move independently. The electronic helm can be adjusted for a customized feel. Owners can dial in the speed sensitivity during turns, wheel effort, steering response and number of turns lock to lock. The helm is equipped with dual independent sensors for redundancy. And because the hydraulic and rudder feedback units are not required, which simplifies installation and dependability. DeWitt says the system is equipped with a simplified auto-purge mode, which allows the user to purge the system with existing components, thereby eliminating the need for a purger.
