Jastram Marine Steering Excellence...

Regarding the India Market, Jeff Reddy experienced an emerging market in 2006, where for 4 years had been overflowing orders. However, near the end of 2010, things did taper down, but with the Jastram partners in India (Arcum Marine Services), business was good. Therefore, 2015 has been a good shake up in the Indian market, and Jastram product, engineering and support will continue in the strategic plan to keep introducing Jastram to the constantly new shipyards emerging in India.

The success of Jastram in India is related to the focus on the customer necessities, R&D investments, Jastram experience & expertise, improvement on manufacturing process and the Jastram people as the most important aspect. Below is a brief recap of some topics:

- The Digital Control Amplifier (DCA) relies on the state-of-the-art digital technology for fast and accurate steering controls, in a small and simple design.
- The Jastram experience and expertise comes handy when shipyards that do not have all the specifications required to put together a complete steering system.

Jastram Digital Control Amplifier (DCA 100)

The new Jastram Digital Control Amplifier (DCA) is specifically designed for small to mid-size commercial vessels and pleasure craft. As its larger cousin the DSC, it relies on state-of-the-art digital technology for fast and accurate steering controls, in a small and simple design. Up to eight input devices can be connected to each DCA. These input devices can be Non-Follow-Up (jog switch), Full-Follow-Up (lever controller or electric wheel), and Digital (Jastram digital helm pump). An additional interface to autopilot is provided in the base unit. The DCA is the controller between the rudder command and the steering hydraulics. It will convert the command from any Jastram input device to a smooth and accurate rudder motion. Contact Jastram for more information.
