Fort Lauderdale, Fla. –Yacht Controller, manufacturer of the world’s first and number one wireless remote controls for yachts, used by more than 19,000 customers on 260 ​ brands of boats announced today that it is officially integrated with Volvo. Volvo’s new electronic vessel control EVC-E and EVC-2 gateway works with all compatible devices delivering plug-and-play connectivity with engine and thruster systems. Yacht Controller’s wireless remote-control system allows users to remain in command of their boat’s movement while away from the helm, where visibility is often limited and has been ​a proven technology for more than 16 years. The Yacht Controller system integrates perfectly with Volvo’s complete line of drive-by-wire steering systems such as the Volvo Inboard Performance Systems (IPS), Aquamatic and Inboard systems.

  • EVC-2 is designed for the latest drive-by-wire steering systems
  • EVC-E ​ ​ connects directly ​via can-bus to the​ Yacht Controller
  • It also has a dedicated CAN Bus port for direct connection to steer-by-wire steering systems:
    ZF Pod DrivesVolvo† IPS* and Volvo Aquamatic
    Teleflex Optimus 360 Systems (Outboard Engines)
    Yanmar VC10 and JC10 (Joystick) Control Systems
  • A single CAN Bus connection to the EVC-E and EVC-2 eliminates the need for an ACU, further
    simplifying installation
