SE IP Ingnition Protected Thrusters Sleipner Motor offers a variety of Side-Power thrusters in a gas- and watertight version. This is the second generation with more upgrades and a larger range of models. The IP versions has all the benefits and proven reliability as the SE series. To provide reliable and safe thruster installations in more boats, we offer modified versions of our DC electric thrusters in watertight housings for use in stern and other locations that may get wet or be exposed to gasoline fumes. These thrusters are fully ignition protected (ISO 8846) for use in boats with gasoline engines. They have a hermetically sealed composite housing around all electric parts. This provides the ignition protection as no gasoline fumes can enter and be ignited by sparks. The other advantage is that the electric parts that could be damaged by water are also covered and protected, making these thrusters the ideal choice for other stern thruster installations where it is difficult to ensure that the thruster will always remain dry.
