Marine product manufacturer and importer Imtra said it is partnering with Norway-based Lilaas to bring contemporary and intuitive controls to the U.S. market.

With this exclusive distribution agreement, Lilaas products will enhance Imtra’s line of OEM products. Imtra said Lilaas’ award-winning products have been the staple of ship operations for years. The company makes control levers and joysticks for marine and offshore use.

Lilaas recently introduced its newest type-approved compact controllers, the L01 and the L04. Popular in European markets, they are now available exclusively from Imtra in North America.

The L01 is designed for azimuth, single/double thruster and propulsion control and the L04 is a multi-axis joystick controller designed for a wide variety of onboard and shore-based applications.

The L01 is offered in multiple configurations and can be purchased with an electric shaft system or as a mechanical version. The unit’s TFT LCD display panel graphically shows lever position and provides feedback information from ships’ systems.

Imtra’s technicians have been trained in the Lilaas factory and can configure the L01 as part of the installation and setup process, using Lilaas’ proprietary software. Controllers can also be purchased with optional engraved indicators and an LED-illuminated scale.

“We are very pleased that our new partnership with Lilaas times perfectly with the introduction of its next generation of products,” Imtra vice president of commercial sales Alex Larsen said in a statement. “Lilaas is a leader in precision marine, medical and aviation control technology, all manufactured at its state-of-the-art facility. The L01 and L04 controls fit seamlessly with the quality products that are our specialty. They perfectly round out the high-performance equipment portfolio that we offer our system integrators and installation partners, as well as end users.”
