ZF MicroCommander

For commercial shipping

The MicroCommander is manufactured for the electronic control of all installations that are driven by a mechanical engine and a mechanical gearbox and can accommodate both commercial marine vessels and yachts.

After installation, the MicroCommander can be fine-tuned using the menu in the display. Among others, the direction and stroke of the push/pull cables, the throttle pause following shift, and high idle can be set.

Additionally, the MicroCommander is equipped with diagnosis software that can trace possible defects, which appear as codes in the display.

Commercial Implementation

The commercial implementation of the ZF MicroCommander comes in a robust steel housing.
