Marex OS

The Marex OS-system is suitable for most ships and propulsions.

It replaces the complex remote controls which until recently had to be custom-made for a specific ship.

The Marex OS features

  • modular hardware consisting of few components
  • signal and data transmission by CAN-bus
  • software and parameter settings permitting to meet various requirements


  • Lower design and engineering costs
  • Easy commissioning by means of intelligent software
  • New methods of error analysis by remote data transmission
  • Different types of control heads are available:
    • For single and twin-engine propulsion systems
    • With lever follow-up for systems with multiple control stations
    • With lighted scale (day-/nighttime operation)

Marex OS VBR for Voith-Schneider propellers

Passenger ships and work boats navigate safely with this control. Developed in close cooperation with Voith Turbo, the Marex OS VBR is perfectly suitable for Voith-Schneider propellers, controllable pitch and rudder propellers, new or retrofit.


  • System availability at all times ensures extreme safety in operation: A redundancy concept covers all functions from the control stations’ electronics to the hydraulic cylinders and actuator shaft.
  • Economic efficiency: Resource-economizing navigation profiles can be defined to save fuel.
  • Durability: All components of the drive chain are attuned to each other which reduces the wear of material.
  • Certified quality: On request, the system is type-approved by:
    • Germanischer Lloyd
    • Bureau Veritas
    • Det Norske Veritas
    • American Bureau of Shipping
    • Rina
    • LLoyd’s Register
