Marex OS II CPP – your advantages

 Marex OS II from AVENTICS – designed for diesel propulsion engines
  • Design and function custom-configurable
  • On request, drawing approvals and FAT
  • All components meet the requirements of ship classification authorities
  • High availability thanks to serial CAN bus
  • Reduced initial-startup effort thanks to pre-assembly


Flexible functions

Marex OS II for controllable pitch propellers – design and function custom-configurable

The propulsion components can be controlled mechanically, pneumatically, or electrically. The engine speed and pitch can be set independently, or together (combined operation). Different characteristic curves for speed and propeller pitch as well as defined speed levels can be selected at the press of a button.

Marex OS II from AVENTICS – efficient, reliable control of controllable pitch propellers

The remote ship control controls the engine speed and pitch of controllable pitch propellers relative to their load, or the jet propulsion. It also actuates PTO and PTI, shaft brake, sailing position (including monitoring by a standby pump). The components are connected by pre assembled cables and communicate over a serial CAN bus which ensures an extremely reliable control procedure. Information from the safety system can be integrated in the control procedure.

Designed for applications in diesel drive engines, this type of Marex OS II control can be found on passenger ships and utility vessels, freight carriers, as well as on motor and sailing yachts of all kinds and sizes to safely and efficiently operate controllable pitch propellers and jet propulsions.

These controls are now also used on ships with diesel-electric and similar propulsion systems.

  • Engine interface which is independent from specific manufacturers and variable for diesel engines and electric motors
  • 2 interfaces are provided for external stations such as the DP system or joystick control
  • Standard modules for I/O extension
  • More functions available through integrated PLC

Marex OS III – remote control system for reversing gear systems

Utility vessels with classification, passenger ships, coastal cargo liners, to yachts can all rely on one of our most tried and tested products. The hardware of the Marex OS III consists of only a few modular units that are extremely powerful thanks to their bus connection.


Marex OS VBR – your advantages

Marex VBR from AVENTICS – certified quality
  • Ensured availability thanks to redundancy
  • Resource-economizing navigation profiles can be defined
  • Attuned powertrain reduces material wear
  • Type approvals of various authorities

Technical details

The control converts the operator’s control commands into CAN bus signals. Redundant systems are provided with an additional potentiometer. The commands which are entered by means of the keys and the feedback to the lamps are transmitted intelligently to both systems. The signals are processed according to the time and pitch curves in store and transmitted to automatic proportional valves or actuators. Alternatively, the signals can be transmitted to the PLC which will then actuate the shaft adjustment.

Certified quality

On request, the system is type-approved by Germanischer Lloyd, Bureau Veritas, Det Norske Veritas, American Bureau of Shipping, Rina, and LLoyd’s Register.

The flexible remote control for controllable pitch propellers

Passenger ships and utility vessels can count on reliable navigation thanks to the Marex OS VBR for Voith-Schneider propellers. Developed in close collaboration with Voith Turbo Marine, the Marex OS VBR is ideal for Voith-Schneider propellers, controllable pitch propellers, and rudder propellers for new ships or retrofits.

Marex 3D – your advantages

  • Intuitive operation
  • Flexible interface
  • Stand-alone joystick station
  • Turnkey solution

The joystick system for relaxed, safe journeys

Even in the tightest of spaces, the Marex 3D joystick system allows for intuitive ship control. It’s a simple principle: the operator moves the joystick and the ship mirrors the movement exactly. The controller automatically compensates for external influences, such as wind or current.

Layout of the Marex 3D joystick system from AVENTICS

All the advantages are obvious

  • Direction compensation
  • Modern, ergonomic design
  • integrated thruster actuator
  • Manufacturer-independent engine and transmission control
  • Configuration, parameterization, delivery, and commissioning from a single source
  • Pairing

Up to six joysticks can be integrated into one system at the same time

The joystick can be used as a separate control element (stand-alone solution) or combined with a control head at a station (pairing). Further functions, such as direct thruster actuation in thruster mode, provide operating comfort and reliability.

Marex ECS – your advantages

Marex ECS from AVENTICS – designed to keep the course
  • Exclusive chrome surfaces, contrasted with black
  • Language-independent icons
  • Subtle backlight illumination
  • Dynamic, asymmetric levers
  • Unique, timeless design

Marex ECS – designed to keep the course

Excellent design supports operation in all situations. The straightforward, timeless style of the Marex ECS goes well with any ship design. The icons on the control panel are self-explanatory and enable language-independent, intuitive operation.

Technology meets the highest standards

Easy to operate, unique design, universal possibilities. The Marex ECS meets the highest production and quality standards, with endurance testing of one million lever actuations.

The Marex ECS is designed for recreational ships (pleasure boats) and utility vessels, its hardware comes from proven automotive applications, and it is compatible with a variety of machines and transmissions – with reliable CAN bus technology and a self-diagnosis system that sends any alarm to the system.
