The Remote Control MPC 800 enables the crew to control and oversee propellers and thrusters for all types of vessels. It gives you clear information on graphical displays – at all control stations. Specially designed by Caterpillar Propulsion to take advantage of the latest microprocessor technology, the MPC 800 is easy to use, giving you clear information on all propellers and thrusters via easy-to-read graphical displays. The control panels have daylight readable displays, which can be easily configured to control or interface with a wide range of supplementary systems including clutches, PTH systems, shaft brakes, joysticks, DP systems, VDR, and conning systems. The MPC 800 also uses modern fieldbus technology for maximum redundancy, minimum wiring, and full functionality in the event of a total failure of one of the electronic branches.
