IntelliSteer Wireless Controllers free you from the need to hand steer your boat from the helm, providing wireless jog steering via a handheld pendant from anywhere on the boat - even below decks.

Popular for I/O boats with wheel steering via a cable to a sterndrive, this Type S IntelliSteer System adds push-button wireless steering control — allowing you to concentrate on cruising or fishing without having to constantly run to the helm to make course adjustments.

If your cable steered sterndrive has a tilt wheel helm, you should install the Type T version of this wireless steering kit; see Related Products link below.
If your sterndrive or outboard has hydraulic steering, you'll want to install an IntelliSteer Type H Wireless Steerer, see below.

How it works...
The IntelliSteer Type S System includes a rotary drive designed to replace your existing helm unit behind the dashboard.*
The replacement rotary drive is powered by an electric motor linked to the included "black box" Wireless Receiver/Controller which, in turn, receives steering signals from a handheld Wireless Pendant.

The rotary drive includes an electronic clutch mechanism to engage the steering cable.
The clutch mechanism disengages when the wireless system is not in use - allowing for normal manual steering.

* The Type S helm requires 10" of space behind the dashboard. With the use of accessory 90° Spacer kits, this distance can be shortened to 8-1/2" if necessary. Refer to the Installation Manual link at the bottom of this entry for more details.

Some caveats —
The Type S rotary drive can be used with most common brands of mechanical rotary and rack & pinion steering helm units.
The kit includes adapters for many types of push-pull steering cables including: Morse 304411, Teleflex SSC52, SSC61, SSC62, SSC72, U-flex M47, M66.
The Type S rotary drive can be used with rack and pinion steering systems, but the steering cable will have to be replaced with an IntelliSteer or Teleflex SCC62 rotary style cable.
NOTE — If your current helm unit is a NFB No-Feedback model, installing the Type S System will result in a loss of the No-Feedback feature - requiring a period of adjustment to the new feedback "feel". This could well be a deal breaker for some helmsmen.
If you have questions about whether your current helm unit is adaptable to IntelliSteer Wireless Steering, refer to the User/Installation Manual in the link at the bottom of this entry, or call us at 800-426-6930 for advice.

If desired, a second Wireless Controller Pendant can be added to the system. It can be "paired" to your existing receiver in the field.

If you do not have push-pull cable steering on your boat, but are looking for a wireless steering system, there are other IntelliSteer systems which bundle an IntelliSteer Wireless Controller with a specially designed steering drive unit.
These include:
IntelliSteer Type H - provides remote steering for hydraulically steered boats
IntelliSteer Type R - provides remote steering for kicker or smaller primary outboards
IntelliSteer Type T - provides a helm replacement for remote steering of cable steered boats that have a tilt steering helm
IntelliSteer Type A - provides remote steering for boats equipped with an autopilot by creating a wireless interface with the autopilot drive mechanism
