Item code: PPC840

The PPC840 Power Control Unit rates for a maximum output current of 550A and is compatible with all 48-volt electric thrusters. 

The PPC840 store historical fault codes and communicate real-time information to the PJC control panel such as amount and direction of thrust on either thruster, remaining run time, battery status and temperature.

Please note that the PJC control panels must be running software v2.018 or later to support these new units.

To upgrade a standard on/off thruster system to PRO (variable speed control), you need a PPC Power Control Unit and an upgrade kit for the internal wiring loom. Your local Sleipner dealer can advise correct upgrade kits for your system.
