ZF SmartCommand

The processor for super yachts

The SmartCommand is a propulsion control system, specifically for yachts. The SmartCommand is engineered for control of a combination of an electrically driven engine and gearbox. Moreover, it is apt for vessels with both one and two engines and it has a standard connectivity for two levers.

After installation, a SmartCommand can be fine-tuned using the menu in the display. Among others, the type of throttle signal, the throttle pause following shift, and high idle can be set.

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