Vessels on the Great Lakes with D-MaC Systems

Reliability is decisive for every vessel's readiness.   PMC's Digital Marine Control system, D-MaC fulfills that requirement.  That is why there are more D-MaC's on the Great Lakes than any other system. The D-MaC is a powerful, easy to use micro-processor based control system.  For maximum reliability D-MaC utilizes a touch screen display panel with non-volatile memory and no hard drives.
