Bow thrusters you can strongly rely on

SE 80

Bow thrusters you can strongly rely on.

The SE80/185T Bow Thruster suits a wide range of boats around the 12m/40ft mark and is thereby a very popular model.

Utilizing the same mechanical parts as the even more powerful SE100/185T, the reduced power makes it an exceptional energy-efficient thruster demanding less from the electrical installation as well as being a very cost-efficient model with a compact installation size. The SE80/185T includes all the important and unique Side-Power features and qualities – why settle for less.

The SE80 models use the twin-prop –  a new special 5 blade special skew propellers are the result of over 2 years of development work and thousands of tests. They have been designed to reduce the noise level while maintaining the exceptional efficiency of the old 4 blade Side-Power propellers. This goal was achieved, and we even chose to make them a little bit more aggressive on some models, increasing the thrust on some thrusters about 5%. The thruster delivers 80KG at 10.5v and an impressive 96KG at 12.5.

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 locked-in solenoid, without extra user action and even without controlling the main switch.

The Bow thrusters also features a Sealed gearleg with a long-life “mechanical” seal where highly polished ceramic and carbon surfaces form the only moving sealing surfaces, ensuring protection against damaging water intrusion into the gear leg. Pre-filled with special gear oil for lifetime lubrication.
