boat steering / electro-hydraulic / power
The HyDrive POWERKIT-12 is a 12volt DC system designed to provide Electronic-hydraulic power steering to handle large horsepower or multiple outboard engines. Tried and
proven for over 3 years in our USA and UK markets on extreme performance boats, we now offer it to outboard dealers and boat builders world-wide to maintain their ability to compete with the very latest in outboard steering technology.
The system can be used to upgrade existing manual hydraulic steering or can be installed as a complete steering unit.
The heart of the package is the microprocessor controlled pump unit which senses loads and delivers pressures up to lOOOpsi to handle the most powerful applications with
finger-tip control on the wheel. This "smart" pump cycles into neutral with minimum current draw when no load is sensed and instantly delivers flow and pressure when loads are applied.
The pump unit comes as a package with a single station steering helm unit which delivers 50cc per rev offering very direct steering with a turns ratio on a 210BH outboard steering cylinder of only 3 turns lock to lock.
