Dy­namic trim con­trol

Boating NZ - - New Gear -

ZIPWAKE IS THE world’s first in­ex­pen­sive dy­namic trim con­trol sys­tem. In­cor­po­rat­ing a se­ries of durable, fast-act­ing in­ter­cep­tors, the sys­tem is fully au­to­matic and en­hances the boat’s per­for­mance, fuel econ­omy, com­fort and safety when ac­cel­er­at­ing, turn­ing or run­ning in a se­away.

Made in Swe­den, Zipwake’s 3D con­trols pro­vide the driver with in­tu­itive con­trol of run­ning trim, heel and head­ing. In­te­gral high fre­quency GPS 3D gyro sen­sors and a ro­bust ride con­troller come as stan­dard with a colour dis­play that is read­able in bright sun­light.

In­ter­cep­tor ac­tu­a­tion is via a cal­i­bra­tionfree sub­mersible elec­tric servo within the in­ter­cep­tor unit. Its nat­u­ral wa­ter cool­ing pro­vides ex­cel­lent work­ing con­di­tions for the brush­less CD servo mo­tor, which runs on 12-32 volts. The blade stroke takes 1.5 sec­onds, out­per­form­ing con­ven­tional trim tabs by a fac­tor of five to 10. In­stal­la­tion is made easy with an in­te­gral mount­ing plate and the op­tion of a con­cealed or above-wa­ter­line self-seal­ing, through-hull ca­ble fit­ting.
