The SE80/185T-IP 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-IP, the reduced power makes it an exceptionally energy efficient thruster demanding less from the electric installation as well as being a very cost efficient model with a compact installation size. The SE80/185T-IP 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.
Noise reductions of up to 75% measured in controlled environments
The expected and tested normal noise reduction in average installations: 20-40%
