We can connect to the engines in 3 different ways: ANALOG • CAN bus • DIRECT
The Dockmate® Receiver translates the commands given through the remote transmitter and relays them to your boat’s controls. The Receiver is in essence the link between the Dockmate® remote and your boat.
The Receiver is a modular system. Every Receiver is assembled and programmed for a specific boat. The boat’s equipment and the customer’s wishes determine which modules are installed in the Receiver. This means every Dockmate® is built to order.
The Receiver is connected to all the necessary controls of your boat.
The Receiver is made out of aluminum and completely waterproof to IP67 rating.
The Receiver supports both analogue and digital (CAN bus) controls. See our ever-evolving list of supported controls.
CAN bus Interface
A new interface for seamless control over POD drives, and other specific propulsion systems.
The Dockmate® TWIST can now be connected to the Volvo Penta IPS system, thanks to our new CAN bus interface.
This Interface acts as an extra station in the system and doesn't require any calibration. It allows the skipper to move around the boat while keeping his fingers on the fully proportional joystick, making docking easier & less stressful!
Twist is now available for Zeus Pods!
The Dockmate® Gearbox driver is a specially developed interface that allows Dockmate® to connect directly to the boat's gearbox.
Allows Dockmate® to connect and communicate directly to the engine's gearbox.
This Interface allows Dockmate® to by-pass the ship's CAN bus system, thus avoiding any possible protocol incompatibility or problem.
In this case the warranty on the engine will not be declared void by the manufacturer.
Recommended mounting spot:
Behind the dashboard, so it’s close to the controls it needs to be connected to.
