Digital Throttle & Shift

Single-engine ERC

Advanced digital controls

With ergonomic controls, an intelligent software system and an intuitive user interface, DTS controls provide a premium driving experience for single-engine boats.

Choose the DTS difference 

Intuitive user interface

DTS controls are packed with intuitive features. Developed with extensive usability testing to ensure optimal performance, engine function buttons are arranged in a way that makes it easy to handle the boat with confidence and precision.

Versatile mounting options

There is an electronic remote control (ERC) to enhance any boater’s preferred vessel. Panel-and console-mount controls are available for single-engine Mercury-powered boats.

Integrated Active Trim

Buttons for activating and adjusting Active Trim are located directly on the DTS control, providing easy access to this popular technology.

Quick Steer capable

Available for Mercury outboards rigged with the single outboard electric steering system, Quick Steer provides rapid steering and more precise throttle control in tight quarters, such as when docking. Quick Steer decreases lock-to-lock steering at the helm to approximately a quarter‑turn in each direction, while still providing full steering capacity.

Helm Transfer function

For boats with multiple control stations, the Helm Transfer function allows engine control to be transferred from one control station to the other.
