ComAp InteliDrive DCU Marine
The InteliDrive DCU Marine is an engine controller specifically designed to meet the demanding requirements of the marine market.
The unit provides a high level of performance with extensive communications and safety functions, as well as primary/secondary power switching. The controller is easily integrated into the ship’s control system and has the capability fully communicate with electronic engines.
The InteliDrive DCU Marine has an engine specific approach which allows the unit to communicate fully with the engine’s Electronic Control Unit (ECU), delivering a greater range of values, and most importantly, delivering all diagnostic information in easy to read text, rather than potentially confusing codes or flashing lights.
