Electro-hydraulic steering machines
with a servo drive are a new steering system, the main advantage of which is the possibility of using two types of steering by one handwheel:
Electrohydraulic servo-controlled steering systems
- Control using an electro-hydraulic power unit, but without servo electronics - everything is done by hydraulics
Manual hydraulic control, which is automatically activated when the hydraulics fail
are simple, powerful, reliable and low-priced, so they are particularly popular with ship owners in Europe.
The combination of the convenience of follow-up control with the reliability of manual hydraulic steering systems is another advantage of this steering machine.
