Optimus EPS Redefining Electronic Power Steering For Power Boats

Optimus Electronic Power Steering (EPS) is suitable for single, twin, triple and quad outboard engine boats. With SeaStar Optimus EPS, you can enjoy smooth power steering on your vessel. SeaStar Optimus EPS  brings control and maneuverability to high performance powerboats, saltwater fishing vessels, catamarans, RIBS and high end pontoon boats.

Features of Optimus EPS

With Active Sensitivity of Optimus EPS, the Lock-to-lock turns and wheel effort are programmed to change with engine RPM. At slow speeds, Optimus EPS can be set to reduce the number of turns lock-to-lock and make it easier to steer. Even at slow speed smaller moves of the wheel give you precise control. When you’re running at speed in open water, Optimus EPS can be set to increase lock-to-lock turns, for example, and increase steering effort giving the driver more stability to comfortably keep on course. And through it all, Optimus EPS does the work, so you can relax and take it easy.
