Side-Power Technology – Ignition Protection
These thrusters are fully ignition protected (ISO 8846) for use in boats with gasoline engines. They have a hermetically sealed composite housing around all electric parts. This provides the ignition protection as no gasoline fumes can enter and be ignited by sparks.
The other advantage is that the electric parts that could be damaged by water are covered and protected, making these thrusters the ideal choice for thruster installations where it is difficult to ensure that the equipment will always remain dry.
