Technical Reference Manual
A descendent of the popular
and proven KE-4, this control
has the superior performance
you would expect - plus control
for engines with electronic
throttle and mechanical shift.
Use KE-6 if . . .
NOTE: When properly installed, these engine controls will connect to
- There are more than 2 stations.
- Throttle is actuated electronically and Shift is
actuated mechanically (KE-6 has no mechanical throttle interface)
- Trolling valve control is not required.
- Engine Sync is needed.
- Electrical system is 12 or 24 volt.
- Hand-held remote desired.
- CANBus interface is not needed.
(If needed, see i6000.)
inboard engines, utilizing an electronic throttle interface and
mechanical shift interface.
(electronic control -each lever controls throttle AND shift)
Built to the High Standards of KE-4 .. .
With fully Electronic Throttle and Mechanical Shift Control for Today's
Inboard Engines! Rugged, reliable and as boater-friendly as the KE-
4, KE-6 adds electronic throttle for one or two engines from up to 4
stations and optional full engine synchronization.
These electronic stand-alone controls are ideal for larger boats with
up to two electronically throttled/ mechanically-shifted inboard
engines and up to four stations.
Works with most inboard engines with
electronic throttle and mechanical shift.
Single or twin engine control; dual function
for each lever.
Up to 4 control heads.
Optional hand-held remote control: great
Built-in Station Select switch.
Engine Sync option available.

Built-in overload protection & diagnostics.
Visual failure alarm standard (audio alarmoptional).
Uses standard 3300/33C type control
cables on throttle/shift actuator.
Easy to install. Plug-in connectors.
12 and 24 volt capability.
Meets/exceeds all applicable industry
