Caterpillar announces propulsion/maneuvering solution

ADVERTISEMENT

USA Caterpillar announced The Cat Three60 Precision Control, an integrated propulsion and maneuvering system for the yachting market. It combines yacht propulsion and control components into single or multiple joystick stations highlighting slow speed control of conventional shaft and propeller driven yachts.

“The ease of maneuvering, immediate response time, silky smooth operation, and other inherent features of the Cat Three60 take Caterpillar Marine and our customers to a new level” said David Shannon, Caterpillar’s Global pleasure craft manager.

The Cat Three60 can simultaneously actuate engine controls, transmissions, thrusters, and propellers and provides proportional power in any direction with propeller control down to 50 shaft rpm. The system requires the use of Twin Disc QuickShift transmissions.

The Cat Three60 Precision Control system includes throttle control, electrical harnesses, sensors, bow thruster, stern thruster (application dependent) and hydraulic system components.
