The MPC500 is a quick update designed to enhance the reliability and performance of your existing control system at a fraction of the cost of installing an entirely new one. The PLC (programmable logic controller) for your control system is no longer manufactured and with this update, we’ll provide new panel electronic interfaces for the bridge and engine room, as well as a new central unit – so all your out-of-production PLCs will be replaced with the same, proven controller used in the cutting-edge MPC800. It not only lets you dial in micro-adjustments to engine load, speed, and propeller pitch, but also provides monitoring-system feedback, and you can receive faults diagnoses on the central unit display panel. This update makes use of the well-supported control panels, backup systems, and cabling from your current system to increase affordability and make installation quick and easy. Because this is our own proprietary unit, you can be sure it will be well-supported – now, and in the future. The MPC 500 upgrade kit includes: • Engine room panel electronic interface • Bridge panel electronic interface • Central Unit • Central Unit display panel
