SE50 IP tunnel bow thruster 24V
50kg thrust, on/off, ignition protection
The Q-PROP™ has measured noise reductions of up to 75% in controlled environments. The five-bladed skew propeller reduces noise levels while maintaining exceptional efficiency. Some thruster models even see an increase in thrust power.
- The expected noise reduction in average installations: 20-40%
- Upgrade kits are available for most Sleipner thruster models with special adaptors
INTELLIGENT POWER CONTROL
Sleipner's patented intelligent power control provides a minimal delay between drive directions to reduce wear of the mechanical parts while monitoring solenoid functions. In the case of a solenoid lock-in, the thruster will automatically stop without extra user action or controlling the main switch.
Our ignition-protected products are compliant with ISO 8846 and ensure gasoline or other flammable fumes cannot enter or be ignited.
When an unsafe temperature is detected, On/off thrusters are automatically shut off to prevent overheating. PRO™ thrusters with speed control provide extended run-time by derating the thrust power to maintain temperature within safe levels.
Sleipner offers installation flexibility to work with the space you have. Our thruster models allow installation at any angle on the tunnel, tailored to fit any space available in your vessel.
This product is manufactured for installations in environments that may experience moist or occasional splashes.
Powered by direct current.
Sleipner analog signal cables with Plug & Play connectors are color-coded to match the wiring diagrams with high-quality connectors to ensure a correct installation.
Immersed parts exposed to seawater are galvanic isolated from the onboard electrical system, eliminating stray currents.
SEALED DRIVE LUBRICATION
The thruster gearleg is pre-filled for lifetime lubrication and sealed using a long-time mechanical seal with ceramic and carbon surfaces for ultimate security against water intrusion.
A properly engineered single propeller system will be the most energy efficient thruster. Its compact design fits easily into narrow bows making it the perfect match for our smaller thruster range. With more than 60.000 single propeller thrusters in use, the single propeller has proven its reliability.
Item code: SE50/140S-24IP
SE50 Ignition Protection is suitable for boats between 27-37 feet. With its 50-62 kg thrust, you get a safe and reliable thruster installation in boats with gasoline engines. Only available for bow installation.
The thruster offers great installation flexibility as it can be mounted at any angle on the tunnel. Additionally, the electric motor can be rotated 90 degrees on the motor bracket.
It is galvanically isolated and features Sleipner's patented IPC technology for intelligent power control and safety. See more of the product features below.
Sleipner's tunnel thrusters are the world's top-selling thrusters resulting from over 35 years of development. Over the years, our tunnel thrusters have been installed in over 350,000 boats worldwide.
Bow and stern thruster
They are fitted either in a tunnel through the boat's bow or into a stern tunnel at the boat's stern. Available as standard version (on/off), PRO™ version (variable speed control), and IP PRO™ version (with ignition protection and variable speed control), extending from 20 kg to 300 kg of thrust.
Sleipner's stern tunnels are designed with solid and durable fiberglass to enhance the thruster's performance and are installed effortlessly in the boat's transom. Additional cowls (sold separately) allow installation in boats with shallow drafts or obstructions on the stern.
The electric motors, solenoids, patented IPC control system, and mechanical parts of the propulsion system are all custom designed and built - utilizing the extensive experience gained through years of leadership in the global thruster market.
Docking has never been easier
Our PRO™ thruster models are equipped with speed control, giving you full variable control of the thruster. The speed control is more intuitive for you as a boater and makes for a quieter and more relaxed maneuver. If you install a dual thruster system (bow and stern), you get the revolutionary hold function, pinning the boat to the pier while docking.
We offer ignition-protected thruster models to provide a reliable and safe installation in locations where the thruster motor may be exposed to water or gasoline fumes.
An additional advantage is that electric parts that could obtain water damage are also covered and protected, making these thrusters the ideal choice for stern thruster installations where ensuring that the thruster will always remain dry is difficult. The IP versions have all the benefits and proven reliability of our standard tunnel thrusters.
A legacy that commits
We’ve lived and worked with the unruly sea for a hundred years. That’s why we develop important features that enables a boat to handle the sea better – that enable you to enjoy your boat, at anchor and at full speed. That is why you wanted a boat, isn’t it?
The technology in our solutions is world-class. We know, because we’ve developed it ourselves, just as we manufacture every solution, and follow them until their fixed to a hull, ourselves. This meticulous attention to detail is why your day out always will be better with a Sleipner aboard.
We take pride in our solutions’ function throughout their lifespan. So, we never really let them out of sight, even when they’ve left for distant shores. Our global network is there to ensure continuous optimal function. You know what you get with a Sleipner, today and tomorrow.
