Ignition protected and splash proof!

To provide reliable and safe thruster installations in more boats, we offer modified versions of our DC electric thrusters in watertight housings for use in stern and other locations that may get wet or be exposed to gasoline fumes. These thrusters are fully ignition protected (ISO 8846) for use in boats with gasoline engines. They have a hermetically sealed composite housing around all electric parts. This provides the ignition protection as no gasoline fumes can enter and be ignited by sparks.

The other advantage is that the electric parts that could be damaged by water are also covered and protected, making these thrusters the ideal choice for other stern thruster installations where it is difficult to ensure that the thruster will always remain dry.

 

      

Intelligent Power Control

The Side Power unique thruster controller that intelligently protects the thruster from potential inherent problems in all high current applications as well as user faults. It includes several important safety features imperative in a product with such high power, run by DC electrics, as a thruster.
•Provides delay between drive directions
•Monitors solenoid functions to reduce the chance of solenoid lock-in
•Will stop the thruster in case of a lockedin solenoid, without extra user action and even without controlling a main switch.

 

 

Single Propeller

A properly engineered single propeller system will be the most energy efficient thruster. Its compact design fits easily into narrow bows making it the perfect match for our smaller models. With more than 60.000 single propeller thrusters in use, the Side-Power single series system has proven its reliability.

 

  Belt drive

The EB Series thrusters has direct operation through a solid transmission belt between the motor and the propeller shaft. There is no oil in the gear housing. The engine is placed in parallel with the tunnel, and can be fitted with the motor on the side of the tunnel, requiring virtually no height at all. This design is very compact and enables installation in the most confined spaces.
