ZF 785CE CruiseCommand Microprocessor for electronically controlled engines

The ZF Mathers' CruiseCommand is the next step up from the proven MicroCommand and ClearCommand product families.

SKU: 3340002001

The ZF Mathers' CruiseCommand is the next step up from the proven MicroCommand and ClearCommand product families.
It is designed specifically for larger vessels with up to 4 control stations and electronic engines with electronic throttle controls and solenoid shifted transmissions.

CruiseCommand incorporates all the standard features of ZF Marine control systems including warm up mode, station transfer, single lever operation, and engine synchronization. It has a number of type approvals if classification is required for your application.

The CruiseCommand is an all electronic, plug and play engine control system. The CruiseCommand processor provides an electronic link integrating your helm mounted engine controls and your engines. Cruise Command systems are preprogrammed at the factory for ease of installation.

Plug-in Installation: With plug connectors, the CruiseCommand makes installation easier, cutting labor time significantly. Determine cable length, engine and gear requirements and you’re ready to plug in this system. To make it even easier, ZF Mathers provides custom kits to meet specific needs for production builders.

Push-Button Set-Up: Push-button set-up makes configuring the parameters for your controls easier than ever before. Simply enter in the parameter code and the processor instantly makes the correct adjustments. Changing configurations at a later time to meet new specifications is just as easy.

Start Interlock: A neutral start interlock feature prevents engine start up unless controls are on and in neutral and a station is in command.

Sequencing Technology: Speed/shift sequence protection allows shifting from full ahead to full astern in one motion while preventing damage to the engine or gear. Designed with safety in mind, this sequencing technology allows you to respond instantly to emergency situations.

Synchronization: Engine synchronization is standard on the CruiseCommand processor. Synchronization automatically maintains the same speed on multiple engines, thereby increasing operating efficiency, improving fuel economy and reducing noise and vibration. One lever operation is available, allowing control of multiple engines and transmissions with one lever.

Multiple Control Stations: The processor has the capability of supporting up to 4 control stations, which allows use of an optional handheld control unit, in addition to mounted control heads.

Built-in Diagnostic Display: The processor features a display unit which provides information for set up, system status, or diagnostic purposes.

The processor controls mechanical or electronic trolling valves or ZF Autotroll. This feature controls clutch slippage while maintaining slow engine speed and enhancing fuel economy. A full range of shaft speeds remain available from any station, without additional switches.
