WHY USE POWER ASSIST?
Today’s high horsepower engines are much heavier
and are producing more propeller torque than ever
before. Naturally, this additional weight and torque
has an effect on the boat’s steering when these
loads are transferred to the wheel. Unacceptable
levels of steering load can increase driver fatigue
and discomfort. The SeaStar Power Assist virtually
eliminates all steering loads and provides modern
boaters the same level of steering comfort and
control found in cars. Even in the most extreme
applications, the boat will be more comfortable to
steer. The SeaStar Power Assist allows the boat to be
driven safely and easily by the whole family.
SYSTEM OVERVIEW:
The SeaStar Power Assist unit can be installed on new
SeaStar steering installations or as an easy retro-fit to
existing systems.
Suitable for most boat types, the SeaStar Power Assist uses
an electronically controlled hydraulic pump to provide
on-demand power steering.
It is installed into the hydraulic steering circuit between
the helm and steering cylinder. The Power Assist unit is
powered from the boat’s battery and adjusts
automatically to the input voltage (12V
or 24V).
The SeaStar Power Assist can be used
on boats with multiple engines and
rudders, multiple steering stations
and autopilots.
If power to the unit is interrupted
for any reason, the steering system
will automatically return to manual
operation without any change
to the number of lock-to-lock
turns. In this case, the steering will
of course be heavier than with the
Power Assist activated.
