Prime Mover Controls is bringing its 30 years of experience in the commercial marine business to large yachts. The MPC-D single-lever unit features a distinctive built-in LCD, which can display engine data like shaft rpm and also controls its own functions like trolling valve, slow-speed and warm-up modes, synchronization, and proportional throttle boost. It has a dedicated transfer key with safety lock and redundancy built in every which way: automatic switching to alternate power sources, back-up link between port and starboard controls, multiple sensors for drift and failure, and even an alarm output to PC monitoring systems. The MPC-D can be set up for many kinds of mechanical and electronic engines, and a typical two-station, twin-screw system with preassembled cabling costs about $8,600.
