HamiltonJet - Waterjets, Control System, & USV Interface
HamiltonJet is the world’s leading manufacturer of water jet propulsion and electronic control systems, boasting the most extensive support network of parts depots, distributors, and servicing dealers. Our External Control Interface (XCI) connects HamiltonJet control systems to third party systems for remote control of unmanned surface vessels. We have been delivering USV systems since 2007 and are trusted by fourteen Navies.
The XCI features a protocol and binding to SAE J1939 that can be used for monitoring and control systems. This gives access to all important features of the waterjet propulsion system including:
-Control of the waterjet steering and reverse actuators
-Feedback on current steering and reverse positions for fine control
-Optional integrated control of the engine throttle and gearbox
-Monitor system health including availability and alarms for failures and warnings
-Control transfer between the automated system and/or optional onboard stations
-Integration with JETAnchor positioning system (if fitted)
Optional standard control stations may be fitted for manual control when taking out/bringing in vessel or in case of emergency.
