The Attitude Control System (ACS) of Mente Marine uses sensors that measure the boat’s movements and automatically adjusts the proper position of trim tabs. No additional electrical installation is needed. You will simply need to replace the trim tabs panel with the ACS panel.

It is known that the ride attitude of a boat is a very frangible parameter directly influenced by the speed, the loads and their distribution, as well as the direction and strength of the wind.

Therefore, whenever the above factors are changing, it is necessary to adjust the position of trim tabs so as to achieve the most suitable riding angle which will provide the best performance and a more comfortable ride.

The Attitude Control System automatically corrects the boat’s attitude by adjusting the position of trim tabs. So, the driver remains committed to the handling of the boat, without the need to constantly adjust the position of trim tabs, which is particularly important when travelling with difficult weather conditions.

The Attitude Control System senses the movements of the boat and is automatically turned on when we change our course, make a turn, or passengers move on the deck, thus correcting the boat’s inclination. Also, during acceleration, it automatically starts correcting the ride attitude even before the boat reaches the desired cruising speed.

Of course, we can disable the ACS and manually adjust the trim tabs whenever we want.
