The Caterpillar motor and Reintjes gearboxes of the Damen FCS 5009, a 52 m. Fast Crew Supplier type Axebow are equipped with a four-fold CruiseCommand system. The system can be controlled from two captain seats, located at different places on the vessel and the gearboxes have high and low idle options. Moreover, this installation is equipped with Dynamic Positioning.
During Europort Rotterdam 2017 we presented the iQJ joystick system by means of a model simulation. Visitors could use a joystick to control a model ship in a water tank, to experience the comforts and nuances of this innovative system.
The key feature of the operation of the iQJ joystick control system is the principle of a static situation: all impellers are stopped when the joystick is not touched. This works easier than joysticks that work according to dynamic positioning, whereby the ship is kept dynamically on course at all times. In contrast to the pricey high-end dynamic positioning systems that require all kinds of measuring equipment, our iQJ joystick is a lot simpler and therefore more affordable.
