If you’re looking to extend the shifting life of your houseboat, take a peek at Twin Disc's newest, commercial-grade EC300 Power Commander propulsion control system for improved transmission and throttle handling. All single and twin lever control heads now feature these contactless sensors for a long and reliable service life.

Perched on the forefront of marine technology, the EC300 has a magnetic contactless Hall Effect sensor for monitoring lever position. Outliving other electro-mechanical/potentiometer type sensors, this sensor provides the longest shifting service life around.

Thanks to a Twin Disc Quickshift transmission, it's also more sensitive. The smallest of lever adjustments lead to instant transmission response. For impressive maneuverability, the first 25 degrees of lever travel give you slow-speed trolling while the following 30 degrees control your engine RPMs.

The EC300 is wisely built for extreme conditions, with a durable housing made from polished stainless steel and sealed for fly bridge use. Extra control head options include extra tall handles and a black finish.

Thanks to active system monitoring, diagnostics, fault indication with event logging, and an optional data display, you’re set. This system accepts up to eight stations (each with independent port and starboard communication cables) and features dual CAN bus technology for increased station redundancy. You also have port and starboard auxiliary connectors in each control head for activating a throttle limit, station lockout clutch disable/FiFi, bow thruster and audible alarm.

You can even program the EC300 system to fit specific application or regulation requirements. You can check out more marine transmission and propulsion equipment from this nearly century-old company at www.twindisc.com.
