Marine Industry

ACS has provided controls for the marine industry since the late 1990’s. We have equipment operating on commercial vessels, U.S. Coast Guard ships, and U.S. Navy ships.  We understand the harsh environment that ships, especially saltwater ships, encounter and know how to design for it.


Marine Defense

ACS has designed, built, and qualified equipment for the extreme demands of the U.S. Navy. We have qualified equipment to the requirements for shock (MIL-DTL-901), vibration (MIL-STD-167-1), shipboard environment (MIL-STD-810), shipboard electrical interface (MIL-STD-1399), and ABS.  ACS’ engineering team also has over 15 years experience in designing Underway Replenishment (UNREP) equipment and systems, including for the U.S. Navy’s standard system (E-STREAM).

Marine Products

ACS has standard designs and products for the following items and are able to customize them for your specific application.

Products include:

  • Heater controllers up to 190 kW
  • Anti two-block devices for cranes or other wire rope operating devices
  • Door frost heaters and cable
  • Electrical cable assemblies for encoders
  • Uninterruptible Power Supply

Marine Ship Building Support

We will provide support for equipment wherever you need it.  This includes onboard ships and during the ship build process.

Training & Grooming

ACS offers training on equipment to ensure the crew understands the system design, proper operation methods, maintenance, and troubleshooting.  We have provided this for over a decade on the B Class 225 WLB’s for the U.S. Coast Guard.

Additionally, ACS can provide equipment grooming to ensure your system is ready for operation at sea.  This process includes verifying E-stop circuits, updating required equipment maintenance, repairing or replacing equipment that is faulty, and updating controls that are now obsolete.
