Would you like to be able to maintain full control of your vessel while not actually positioned at the wheel? Although this may seem impossible, it is not with the latest systems from Osmotech.
The RMC system, which stands for Remote Motor Control enables you to manoeuvre your vessel safely and accurately from anywhere on board. Not only does the wireless remote control system control the bow and stern thrusters, but also the main engines for forward and backward propulsion. RMC makes this possible. The technology underlying this product is a failure-proof wireless communication system that was developed by Hydrospex and is now incorporated in the Hydronautica’s RMC system. The innovation is in the bi-directional communication, which effectively translates into two-way transmission. The remote control and the vessel both serve as transmitters and receivers, as a result of which they are ‘introduced’ to one another and communicate via a code that only they ‘know’ and can ‘hear’ and which is therefore insulated from all other (interference) sources. The handheld unit runs on rechargeable Li-Ion battery technology and can operate for more than two weeks without a recharge. The system issues a ‘Low Battery’ signal before it reaches the point where the signal begins to fail.
Remote Motor Control - A new style of navigation
Bigger and bigger vessels operated by smaller and smaller crews: The more complete a maritime vessel today, the more engines and bow and stern thrusters it will have. The RMC system puts all of those systems at your disposal in one hand and in any desired location on board. You could even serve as the absent crew member on the aft deck when mooring in a sluice.
Shape and Design
The unit is shaped in the form of a ship and the design incorporates only the highest quality materials available in the market today. The handheld unit is also splash proof!
Ease of use
The side power RMC is easy to install and can be used with all current electronic motor control systems. For more details ask Osmotech whether your system is compatible for use with RMC.
