The SX100/185T is the perfect choice for boats where the inside configuration of the boats stern makes a standard thruster installation impractical. When fitted with the optional cowls, the sternthuster assembly is perfect for boats with twin stern drives. The special cowls enables good performance by diverting the waterflow past the stern drive legs which normally blocks the waterflow and the thrust.
The SX100/185T includes all the important and unique Side-Power features and qualities - why settle for less.
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.
The new 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%. Please see individual information on each new thruster for more details.
