Zipwake introduces the smart new Mini Controller at Metstrade 2023.

Bringing together the best of two worlds, the Mini Controller responds to a demand from boatbuilders – giving them the freedom to design attractive, modern dashboards as well as delivering all the control boaters need to get the most out of every day on the water.

Although MFDs continue to grow in popularity – driven by a trend toward dashboards with an “uncluttered” appearance – their touchscreens can sometimes be challenging to operate at sea. This is especially true if the helmsman’s fingers are wet, or the weather is rough.

In such cases, the Mini Controller serves as an ideal alternative. Small and discreet, it’s the perfect complement to any Zipwake system equipped with the Integrator Module and MFDs. The Mini Controller acts as an “eyes-free” remote control for the Zipwake App, giving boaters total system control for optimum trim without having to reach for a touchscreen.

Boaters can either let the Zipwake system work automatically or make manual adjustments with the user-friendly and intuitive control wheels. When connected to the Integrator Module, the Mini Controller’s built-in GPS enables the trim control system to operate automatically without requiring an external GPS source. For even more convenience, the Mini Controller’s Key Sense can be connected to the engine ignition for automatic system power-on.

Rugged and waterproof, the Mini Controller is designed to withstand harsh marine conditions and can be installed within reach anywhere – from the cockpit of a day cruiser to the flybridge of a yacht.

Zipwake is designed for customization, and the new Mini Controller gives boaters more ways than ever to make the system their own. Now they can choose a basic set-up with Zipwake’s proven control panel, connect MFDs and smart devices using the Integrator Module, and add the Mini Controller for easy control – whatever the conditions.

The Mini Controller is compatible with all Zipwake system components and is available as an accessory or spare part. Zipwake is proud to introduce this innovative product at Mets 2023.
