Wärtsilä Joystick with Heading Control

The Joystick System has been designed to provide easy control of vessel movement. The product consists of 2 modules – an Operator Workstation including a 3 axis non-spring loaded joystick, and a Signal Processing Unit (SPU). Connection to the thrusters is simplified through the use of I/O modules within the SPU. The product can be upgraded to DP0 with the addition of an MRU and a DGPS; and to a DP1 with the addition of a second SPU and Operator Workstation.
