Launched at MetsTrade is Amsterdam, Vetus Bow Pro Boosted brushless thruster features an in-house-engineered intelligent motor controller and an added boost function to make life easier for boat owners.
Providing a significant technical advantage over existing thrusters, The new highly-efficient six models of Vetus Bow Pro Boosted 57-130 series feature an internal charger that enables the thruster to boost output to up to double the voltage. It can be connected to 12V or 24V power supplies, making it suitable for a range of boats up to about 80 ft. When the thruster is not in use, the built-in charger automatically recharges the battery, doubling its value as both a thruster and charger.
There’s no brush contact
As well as connecting to the internal charger, the Vetus motor controller also regulates the maintenance-free induction motors without carbon brushes, a technology that ensures the Bow Pro Boosted models a quiet running with a working time only limited by the size of the battery pack installed. With almost no loss of power, active heat control and power consumption are very low.
The fully-proportional thrusters allow users to command as little or as much power as needed with fingertip control. Operating with CAN-Bus protocol, Vetus Bow Pro Boosted thrusters feature a choice of two different control panels – the fully-proportional basic panel (BPPPA) and the fully-proportional panel with local and hold function for easy docking (BPPJA), allowing the boat to be held alongside to pick up or drop off crew or dock single-handed.
the Bow Pro range for 20-55ft boats
has already earned a deserved reputation
as powerful, quiet thrusters with unlimited
run times and brushless motors
Introduced over the last year and recipients of an Innovation Award at Miami International Boat Show, the Bow Pro range for 20-55ft boats has already earned a deserved reputation as powerful, quiet thrusters with unlimited run times and brushless motors. All models in the series combine Vetus’s highly-regarded electric thruster technology with its extremely quiet RimDrive, to provide near silent operation and precision proportional control.
In addition, Vetus has brought to MetsTrade many other novelties, including the V-Docker joystick system, a new range of F-Line 4-cylinder common-rail engines, and new cooling water strainers: the nickel-plated CWS series and the FTR33038M.
