ePropulsion’s latest series of electric outboards offer a total powertrain efficiency of 88.2%.
The X Series comprises three motors, the X12, X20 and X40. The X12 features 12kW power, the X20 generates 20kW of power and the X40, which made its debut at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, provides 40kW of power.
“The X Series is the result of extensive R & D and we are always looking to go above and beyond the industry standards,” said Danny Tao, co-founder and CEO of ePropulsion. “With the advanced X Series, we deliver more than electric propulsion, it’s an intelligent and integrated platform accessible for consumers and OEM clients, ensuring a quieter, cleaner boating experience.”
All the motors have the same electric steering, power trim/tilt, the electric control unit (ECU) and the controller within a single assembly, simplifying installation and optimising onboard space.
The new range incorporates frequency resonance isolation and vibration dampening technology.
The motors feature the ePropulsion Smart System Architecture (eSSA), whose modular architecture has been developed for simple system configuration and also supports the integration of renewable energy systems.
Driving assistance features such as ‘Position Hold’ and ‘Heading Hold’ and ‘360 Motions’ are incorporated for additional safety-focused options.
The ePropulsion Connectivity Service is available for users of all motors within the X Series, so they can stay connected with their boat remotely, accessing real-time boat and system status with advanced monitoring, reporting and tracking.
The X40 is IP67 waterproof and built to have a minimum service life of 5,000 hours.
