SCHIEDAM _ In more than half a century, VETUS has become a globally operating developer, manufacturer and trading company, selling marine engines, generators and technical equipment for recreational craft and small commercial vessels.
Over 70% of VETUS products have been partly or completely developed in-house. The company’s brand new 2019 product guide spans over 400 pages of many hundreds of products that come with a 3-year warranty.
VETUS’s 2019 products lineup includes Bow Pro Boosted Thrusters that feature the latest induction motor technology which make the use of carbon brushes obsolete.
As a result, the bow thruster is very quiet and has indefinite run-time. The induction motor is controlled by the VETUS MCV inhouse-engineered motor controller that can handle 12 V and 24 V, making the new bow thruster suitable for almost all boats!
The BOW PRO thruster motor is maintenance-free and has Endurance Rated run-time! Just the tailpiece and power circuits need regular maintenance.
The BOW PRO thruster is controlled by a proprietary CANBUS protocol. There are 2 different panels available: a fully-proportional basic panel and one fully-proportional panel with lock-function that allows mooring without the use of ropes. The BOW PRO thruster can be easily retro-fitted as the new motor is interchangeable with the tailpiece and flange of the VETUS thruster range.
