Marinized 12/24v Controls and Marine Hydraulics

Controllers - Background

Established in the mid 1990s and selling world-wide to the leisure sector of the marine industry, King Stag designs and manufactures a range of marinized electrical and electronic controls that integrate all on-board hydraulic equipment.

Initially based on relay interfaces our products have evolved into very versatile embedded processor controls that are both small, powerful and importantly, low cost. Also by designing a modular system, integration of equipment is simple, quick and easy to understand. We do not use programmable logic controllers (PLCs). We find these expensive, bulky and 90% unused and generally not marinized. We design at chip level, incorporating protection against the type of electrical noise, physical shock and atmosphere that only boats can produce, and in doing so we can produce a compact product that is more robust and meets all the desires of the boat’s designer at an economic price.

All controller inputs are low current allowing any type of switch to be used. This not only gives freedom of design of control panels but reduces the size and therefore cost of the wiring.

Our base range links switch input to valve and pump. Any combination of AC, DC, Engine or Generator driven pumps can be used with each individually controlled. This allows selection of one or more pumps as required. The base system can therefore cope with a simple one pump one valve design right up to complex multiple pump installations.

Added to our base design we provide controllers for specific functions. These include Bow Thrusters, Lifting Keel, Canting Keel, Crane, Deck Hatch, Stern Door, Passerelle, Boarding Ladder, Swim Platform, and a number of other “Unusual” requirements.
