Engine Control & Push Pull Cables

Marine engine control is used to control the speed and direction of the ship's propulsion. On motor ships and motorboats, the lever control is usually located in the wheelhouse. On sailing ships and yachts it is placed within reach of the tiller or steering wheel. On many sailboats, single lever controls for side mounting are used. If you move the lever forward from the neutral position, the transmission is engaged in forward gear. At the same time, the filling quantity of fuel at the injection pump is increased.

… position, the marine gearbox declutches. In contrast, a twin lever control uses two levers for the direction of rotation and speed. The helmsman has to reduce the engine speed himself before the ship's engine is engaged. Two cables or Bowden cables are conducted from the gear lever to ship propulsion. One cable transmits the direction selection to the boat's gearbox and determines the direction of propeller rotation, the other controls the engine speed. On the lever, there is also a possibility to accelerate without engaging the clutch. This is necessary, for example, when starting a cold engine. At Toplicht you will find robust, proven controls, which are adornment for every wheelhouse. These are well suited for use on traditional ships, classic yachts and professional vessels.
