CT60-IP Ignition protected thruster
Available in 12V or 24V, the CT60-IP is suited to motor boats and deep footed sailing yachts between 20’-40′. Manufactured using composite materials, the CT60-IP is a single propeller thruster with a 185mm diameter tunnel and thrust rating up to 60/132 (kg/lbs) on the 12V model, or 60/143 (kg/lbs) on the 24V model. Integrating the unique features common to the Max Power Ignition Protected tunnel thruster range, the CT60-IP is easy to install and connect.
Ignition protected thrusters are ideal for motor boats. Their unique feature is the totally sealed housing around every electric part. This feature provides optimal ignition protection because it doesn’t allow any fuel fumes enter the electric parts and cause spark ignition. In addition, the sealed housing prevents water and humidity from entering the electric parts area and keeps it dry.
* Thrusters are designed to run at 10.75V on 12V units and 22V on 24V units. Higher voltages will result in higher thrust ratings, higher power consumption, and a reduced duty cycle.
* Performance data is given for a thruster installed at an immersion depth of one tunnel’s diameter, in a tunnel no longer than twice the tunnel’s diameter, and this within a variation of / – 6%. Longer tunnels will result in lower thrust ratings and higher power consumption.
