With many boat customers now having had several boats with thrusters, many choose to upgrade to more powerful versions to be sure that the thrusters work well for them in all situations. However, very powerful single speed thrusters can, in light weather conditions, be a bit difficult to use as they push the boat too fast. The solution is to fit the new Side-Power DC Power Controller which enables proportional speed control of a DC electric thruster. By also controlling the thruster's power, you get even more precise handling of the boat in all conditions.
Another great advantage is that when you run the thruster at less than full power, the usable run time is extended, with close to continuous usage being possible when you are running the thruster at less than 50% of full power (percentage of thrust with continuous duty depending on thruster model).
