GLENDINNING

Why Complete Controls?

In 1990, Glendinning introduced it’s first electronic engine control system to the marine industry — since then we’ve proven our ability to bring innovative ideas to the market. From the first automatic, integrated backup system to today’s integrated control of your engine’s drive unit, we’ve shown our commitment to giving you the best experience while cruising in your vessel. Thousands of satisfied customers agree — if you’re using any other electronic engine control system, then your boat isn’t complete! Whether you own a pleasure yacht or a work boat (and everything in between), single, twin, or multiple engine applications, inboard, outboard, stern drive, and water jet applications — Complete Controls™ is your best choice for optimum control of your boat’s propulsion system.

• Complete Control of Engine Throttle and Shift for All Engine Types

No matter what type of engine you own — Complete Controls™ is specifically engineered to be compatible

with all electronic, mechanical, and electronic / mechanically controlled engines and transmissions.

• Easier Installations with CANbus Technology

CANbus technology has revolutionized the electronic controls industry by simplifying wiring and allowing greater flexibility when adding control stations. Utilizing a single communication cable, up to 6 control stations (including our handheld remote station) can be connected anywhere along the network’s path.

• Sophisticated Power Management

The power system receives power from two independent DC power sources. During normal operation, the system will draw power from both power sources. In the event one power source fails, the control system will run off a single DC power source, switching over automatically. We believe this concept of “dual battery inputs” provides a very important feature which improves the product reliability.

• Convenient System Configuration Process

The “heart” for the Complete Controls™ system is housed in a small, watertight, pluggable enclosure that does not need to be opened because the system is preconfigured at the factory. When personal preference dictates a change to the system’s configuration, these options are accessible from the main station control head keypad making it even easier to adjust configuration settings.

• Optional Integrated Gear / Throttle Back Up Control

Nothing is more troubling and expensive than having a problem with the electronic control system that requires you to cancel your plans and get a tow back into port. Glendinning’s Integrated Gear / Throttle Backup option allows you to regain control of your boat’s propulsion system with the simple flip of a switch.

CONTROLS FOR ELECTRONIC ENGINES

With the advent of electronic engines into the marine industry, the control of your propulsion system has never been more important. Your electronic propulsion system has become more demanding in terms of information it receives from the electronic engine control system. Glendinning’s Complete Controls™ system offers the latest in digital technology which allows it to interface with all types of electronic engines while providing the operator with complete control over the propulsion system.

• Complete Controls™ Electronic Engine Controls — Model EEC3™ and EEC4™

Complete Controls™ was designed to give the boat operator everything from basic control operation to advanced control operation of any propulsion system that is equipped with electronic throttles and electric (solenoid operated) transmissions.

Basic Control Operation (model EEC4™) — This system is a compact economical solution to effectively control the propulsion system for any size vessel. The Basic Control features are:

  • Cruise Mode — Normal operating control of engine speed and transmission.
  • Warm Mode — Locks transmission in Neutral while allowing engine throttles to be increased or decreased safely.
  • Sync Mode — Very precise engine synchronization available with the simple press of a button on the control head keypad. While in Sync Mode, one control handle can control the speed of both engines.
  • Exclusive Station Transfer — In order to transfer control from one station to another a “twobutton” press of the keypad button is required.
  • Warning Mode — A visual indication that a battery voltage problem or check system problem has occurred.
  • Alarm Mode — The system will continuously monitor system functions and alert the boat operator of a problem that has or can affect the operation of the control system.

Advanced Control Operation (model EEC3™) — This system was designed with the experienced mariner in mind. Advanced control is by far, the most featurerich electronic engine control system in the industry. Advanced Control features include the above basic control operations plus:

  • Slow Mode — Great for “no wake” areas, this mode changes engine throttle response where full handle movement will only result in half the normal full throttle engine speed.
  • Optional Troll Mode — Only the advanced control system gives the boat operator control over the transmission trolling valves (if equipped).
  • Optional Automatic Gear / Throttle Backup — This feature allows you to regain control of your boat’s propulsion system, with the simple flip of a switch, in the event that the normal operating system is not functioning properly (see pg. 9 for more information).

The Handheld Remote Control™ option gives boat operators total control of both transmission and throttle from virtually anywhere on the boat. This portable control station puts the same operational features of our fixed control station in your hands for easier docking and maneuvering of your boat in tight spots. The Handheld Remote Control™ option incorporates the following features:

  • CANbus Technology — with CANbus technology, communication components are more robust, wiring is simplified, and installation is made easier.
  • Ergonomic Design — our design fits more comfortably in your hands than any other remote control option on the market. The “game pad” style design allows you to effortlessly control both engines at the same time.
  • Complete Engine Control — all normal functions available at any stationary control head are available on the Handheld Remote. Keypad appearance is the same eliminating steep learning curve.
  • Additional Functions Available — up to 8 other propulsion functions can be added to the Handheld Remote through the Auxiliary Output Function Unit (ie., engine stop/start, bow/stern thruster, and rudder control).
  • Wiring Options — you can choose how to connect the Handheld Remote to the system. “Hardwired” option allows you to use an existing system component to connect the Handheld to the CANbus network. “Plugin” option allows multilocation of the Handheld anywhere on your boat for the ultimate convenience (see below).
“Hard-wired” to existing components
The remote is “hard-wired” to another component (ie. Control Processor, Control Head station, or Auxiliary Function Unit) in the Complete Controls™ system. The remote includes 35 feet of cable (standard). If necessary, a station communication cable can be used to extend the remote’s connection.
“Plug-in” for increased mobility
A “plug-in” receptacle can be installed in multiple locations on the boat to increase the usefulness of the remote. The remote comes with 25 feet of cable (only). The receptacle can be connected to the system with standard station communication cables.

The Automatic Synchronizer

The Automatic Synchronizer™ has been the industry standard for automatic twin-engine synchronization of mechanically operated engines since 1971.
Synchronization is vital on twin engine boats, not only for the purpose of increased efficiency, but also to eliminate the annoying noise and vibration caused by engines operating at different speeds.

The Automatic Synchronizer™adjusts engine speed without any effort on the part of the boat operator.When activated, it will adjust the speed of the Port engine to exactly match the speed of the Starboard engine. The result is that the boat operatorcan control the speed of both engines by merely adjusting the speed of the Starboard engine.
