Kobelts 6505 compact electronic control head provides a digital output. This output is used by Kobelts Mighty Mariner or 6525 controller to control engine throttle, clutch engagement or propellor pitch.

The handle also has three detent positions; one at neutral plus another two to correspond with clutch activation points in both ahead and astern.

This control is watertight, and is capable of being used in multiple control head configurations.


The 6505 unit is equipped with a keypad to control Station Select, Station Lock, Throttle Override and Engine Synchronizer functions. The buttons will enable the following functions:

STATION SELECT: Permits the transfer of engine control to another station. On power-up, station
control automatically is assigned to station 1 (main station).

STATION LOCK: Allows the operator to lock out the other control stations.

THROTTLE OVERRIDE: Disables the clutch function so that the engine can be operated to full throttle
without turning the propellors. This feature is useful for engine warm-up or testing.
To return to the normal operating mode, return the handle positions back to neutral (TDC) and press the button again.

SYNCHRONIZER: Pressing this button enables the propellor speed synchronization feature, which uses external speed sensors to measure the speed and permit the controller to match the engine speeds. The operator only needs to move one or the other throttle handle to control both engine speeds.
When pressing the button, the light will flash until the engine speeds are synchronized. As long as the engine speeds are within the controller dead-band, the light remains solid on. The synchronizer function is not available when the propulsion controls are in trolling mode
