Let Us Answer Before You Ask

We’ve complied the most common questions that we receive from our prospective partners and customers. If you don’t see your question listed, please contact us directly.

What are the smallest and largest boats you can facilitate?

The PowerPlex® system is fully scalable. It can be as compact or complex as the vessel requires. This makes it as easy to implement automation on a small motorboat as it is on a million dollar luxury yacht. The possibilities are endless.

Is PowerPlex training provided for boat manufacturers?

Yes, E-T-A provides boat manufacturers with internal and external training on installing and operating the PowerPlex® system.

My customers’ boats all serve different purposes and lifestyles. Can PowerPlex® be configured differently on each vessel?

Yes! Because the system is built on a digital network, the GUI can be designed and customized to the specific customer or model line.

What if I need assistance after installation is complete?

E-T-A is proud to offer support to our customers convenient land-based support. E-T-A, can remotely view, isolate, and diagnose PowerPlex® system errors, even for the most customer-specific issues.
