• Do not install the thruster in a position where you need to cut a stiffener/ stringer/ support that may jeopardise the hull integrity without checking

with the boat builder this can be done safely.

• Paint the gear leg and propellers with anti-fouling. (NB: Do not paint the anodes, sealing, rubber fi ttings or propeller shafts)

• There is only room for a thin coat of primer and two layers of anti-fouling between the tunnel and the props.

• Never run the thruster out of water without load.

MC_0020

2023

When installing an S-Link™ system connect ONLY original Sleipner S-Link™ products or other authorized control equipment directly to the S-Link™ bus.

Connecting non-authorized third-party equipment, it must always be connected through a Sleipner supplied interface product.

Any attempt to directly control or connect into the S-Link™ control system without a designated and approved interface will render all warranties and responsibilities of all of the connected Sleipner products. If you are interfacing the S-Link™ bus by agreement with Sleipner through a designated

Sleipner supplied interface, you are still required to install at least one original Sleipner control panel to enable efficient troubleshooting if necessary.

MC_0105

Failure to follow the considerations and precautions can cause serious injury, damage and will render all warranties given by Sleipner Motor as VOID.

General Installation Consideration and Precaution Guidelines

MC_0440

For thruster systems

MC_0425

• Do not install the thruster in a position where you need to cut a stiffener/ stringer/ support that may jeopardise the hull integrity without checking

with the boat builder this can be done safely.

• Paint the gear leg and propellers with anti-fouling. (NB: Do not paint the anodes, sealing, rubber fi ttings or propeller shafts)

• There is only room for a thin coat of primer and two layers of anti-fouling between the tunnel and the props.

• Never run the thruster out of water without load.

If an original Sleipner hydraulic system is NOT installed, please ensure the following:

MC_0009

• Install an oil fi lter to keep the oil clean.

• Fit an oil cooler or use an oil tank to ensure the maximum oil temperature is 43 - 50 °C.

• Hydraulic thrusters are supplied with hydraulic motors only.

• The installed hydraulic system is the responsibility of the fi tter/ installer and must be within the limitations outlined in this manual to ensure no

damage is caused to the thruster.

• The hydraulic valve must have flow and pressure limits that are either set within or can be adjusted to the limits of the thrusters capability.

• We strongly advise that a shock valve is fi tted and set to 10% - 15% above the chosen maximum pressure set in the valve. This will prevent the

system from being damaged if the propellers are blocked for any reason.

• Install a device to ensure the drive direction cannot be suddenly changed, as this can severely damage the gear leg. (NB: Use a electric control

system or a valve that ensures minimum 1 second delay when changing drive direction.)

When installing an S-Link™ system connect ONLY original Sleipner S-Link™ products or other authorized control equipment directly to the S-Link™ bus.

Connecting non-authorized third-party equipment, it must always be connected through a Sleipner supplied interface product.

Any attempt to directly control or connect into the S-Link™ control system without a designated and approved interface will render all warranties and responsibilities of all of the connected Sleipner products. If you are interfacing the S-Link™ bus by agreement with Sleipner through a designated

Sleipner supplied interface, you are still required to install at least one original Sleipner control panel to enable efficient troubleshooting if necessary.

Positioning of the tunnel / thruster

MC_0003

Aim to install the thruster as far forward as possible (1)

Due to the leverage effect around the boats’ pivot point. The distance difference from the boat pivots’ point to the thruster will determine the amount of real rotation power for the boat.

Aim to install the thruster as deep as possible under the waterline (2)

Deeper installations prevent air from being sucked into the tunnel from the surface, resulting in reduced thrust performance and increase noise levels during operation. Deeper installations increase water pressure for maximum effi ciency from the thruster.

The centre of the tunnel should be as a general rule minimum of 1 x the tunnel diameter below the waterline. (NB: Refer to product measurements to defi ne your products recommended depth below the waterline.) The installer must make evaluations based on thruster performance, boat type and operating conditions. As a general recommendation, the position of the tunnel should not be a minimum of 1/4 of the diameter of the tunnel from the boat keel. (NB: This can be overlooked depending on the installation methods defi ned in this manual.)

Tunnel Length

MC_0003

Optimal tunnel length

Achieving the correct tunnel length depends on many factors from the hull type, operation and environmental conditions.

Tunnels should avoid being longer than 4 x the tunnel diameter as this will reduce thruster performance. (NB: Installing long length tunnels can flex/ bend over time and may require additional support. Consult with a naval architect.)

1. Do not allow the variable length of the tunnel walls to vary in length excessively.

EG. The top tunnel wall is x 4 longer than the bottom wall.

2. If the tunnel is too long, the friction inside will reduce the water speed and thereby the thrust.

3. If the tunnel is too short (typically only in the bottom section of the tunnel) cavitation problems can occur as water flow will not be able to

“straighten” itself before reaching the propeller. This cavitation will reduce performance and increase noise during operation.

Thruster within the tunnel

It is important the propellers and the lower unit/ gear leg must be entirely inside the thruster tunnel. Propellers that protrude from the tunnel will not perform as intended.

4. Standard Use

Tunnel length must be long enough to ensure the propellers are not extruding the tunnel. ( NB: Refer to product measurements to defi ne your

products recommended tunnel length.)

5. Flat Bottom Hull

Tunnel lengths must be longer than the standard measurement outlined within the manual to ensure a circular vacuum is not created between the

thruster and the bottom of the boat.

6. High-Speed Boats

Tunnel lengths must be increased to protect the propeller from damage when crashing against the water surface during high-speed cruising. (NB:

This can include the length of a spoiler)

Tunnel installation in Sailboats

MC_0003

Some sail boats have a flat bottom and shallow draft in the bow section. This can make installing the thruster as far forward from the boats main pivot point diffi cult. (Fig. 1) .

However, it is possible to install a tunnel thruster in most sail boats, even when the hull does not directly support the fi tting of a tunnel.

Instead fi t the tunnel halfway into the underneath section of the existing hull. Strengthen it with a deflector/ spoiler directing the water flow around the tunnel. This will allow installation of the thruster in the proper position on the boat, maintaining the reliability and space advantages of the tunnel thruster.

This installation is being used by some of the world’s largest sail boat builders and has proven to give little to no speed loss during normal cruising.

This can also be an installation method for flat bottomed barges to avoid extremely long tunnels and large oval tunnel openings in the hull.

Water Deflection

MC_0003

1. A possible problem in sail boats or fast powerboats is that a non-rounded surface can generate drag from the back face of the tunnel, as it creates a “flat” area facing the flow of water.

This problem can be solved in two different ways, depending on what is possible or easier to perform.

2. The best solution which generally reduces the most drag is to make a recess in the hull at the back of the tunnel. As the back face is removed water can flow freely past the tunnel entry. The depth and shape of this recess will depend on the boat and the angle facing up/ down aft of the tunnel insert. Normally it is angled slightly down because of the water flow on this area.

3. Making a deflector/ spoiler in front and underneath the tunnel can also reduce damage to the thruster and drag. The deflector/ spoiler will push the water flow out from the hull so water can pass by the back face of the tunnel. The shape and size of this deflector/ spoiler will depend on the hull shape. The easiest way of making the deflector/ spoiler is to retain a part of the lower forward area of the tunnel while installing the tube. Use this area as support to mould a soft curve/spoiler shape from the hull.

4. The thruster propeller can spin (passively) producing noise while sailing or cruising as water is forced through the tunnel. Water-flow directed through the tunnel at high speeds, during turning or as the boat bumps waves while underway can also damage the thruster.

(NB: As a rule, you should not see the back face of the tunnel when standing directly in front of the boat looking aft.)

To protect the propeller from water entering into the tunnel at high speeds (25 knots +) the extended deflector/ spoiler must provide protection from the front and the bottom. In the event when the boat is traveling at high speeds it will commonly pound upon the water surface.

Tunnel Ends

MC_0003

Rounded tunnel ends will maximise thrust and minimise noise and cavitation.

For best performance round the tunnel connection to the hull-side as much as possible. The minimum rounding has a radius of 10% of the diameter of the tunnel.

Signifi cant advantages of a rounded tunnel over a sharp tunnel to hull connections are:

1. A rounded tunnel end will prevent the creation of turbulence/ cavitation created from a sharp tunnel end when water passes by the tunnel.

- The turbulence/ cavitation will block the outer area of the tunnel and thereby reduces the effective tunnel diameter and thrust.

- Turbulence/ cavitation on the propeller will lessen the thrusters performance and create excess noise.

2. For steel/ aluminium hulls angled tunnel ends also offer similar performance as a rounded connection.

3. A rounded tunnel end makes the thruster draw water from along the hull-side, creating a vacuum that will suck the boat sideways and thereby give additional thrust.

- With a sharp tunnel end, the thruster will be unable to take water from along the hull-side, and you will not gain the desired vacuum and

additional thrust. This “free” extra thrust in optimal installations be 30 - 40% of the total thrust.

(NB: A Sleipner thruster propeller does not produce cavitation at working speed. Therefore, any cavitation and cavitation noise in the tunnel will be caused during improper tunnel installation.)

Tunnel Installation

MC_0003

IMPORTANT

We recommend that a professional does the fi breglass, steel or aluminium fi tting of the tunnel. These instructions are only general instructions and do not explain in any way the details of fi breglass work. Problems caused by faulty installation of the tunnel, are the installers full responsibility.

1. Find the position in the boat considering the information earlier in this manual and the applicable measurements for the thruster model you are installing. Mark the centre of the tunnel on both sides of the hull. Drill a hole horizontally at these marks.

2. Mark the circle for the tunnel opening (outside diameter of the tunnel) and cut the hole.

3. Grind off the gel coat to the “real fi breglass” area 12cm around the hole on both inside and outside the hull to cast the tunnel to the hull (Fig. 3) .

4. Insert the tunnel and mark its shape to fi t the hull. (NB: if you are installing with a deflector/ spoiler, leave a part of the tunnel in the front and underside of the tunnel that will cover the back face.)

5. Cut the tunnel ends to the desired shape and lightly sand its surface. Clean the area with acetone or similar where you are going to apply fi breglass. (NB: Do not cast or add fi breglass to the area were the thruster will be placed.)

6. Cast the tunnel to the inside of the hull, use at least eight layers of 300g fi breglass and resin, preferably alternating mat and rowing types of fi breglass. To round the tunnel ends to a 10% radius make further layers inside to preserve the desired hull thickness.

(NB: Ensure gaps between the tunnel and the hull are completely fi lled with resin/ fi breglass. In areas where you can not access to make layers of resin/ fi breglass, a resin/ fi breglass mixture must be used in that area.)

Tunnel Installation

With tunnel installed and cast.

1. Round the edges with a radius of 10% of the tunnel diameter.

2. For steel/ aluminium hulls make a slope with a length of 10-15% of the tunnel diameter.

(NB: If this is not possible, round the tunnel end as much as possible.)

MC_0003

3. Additionally cast two layers on the outside of the tunnel/ hull in a 10cm area

4. Follow the same method if making the deflector/ spoiler.

You must apply gel coat to areas you have grounded/ moulded to make waterproof. These areas allow water access to the hull which is typically not waterproof without these applications outside. (NB: All original Sleipner tunnels are fully waterproof when delivered except in the areas where you have cut and bonded it to the hull.)

IMPORTANT

Avoid all casting where the motor-bracket is to be placed, as this will cause misfi t and possible failure to the gear house.

S-Link System Description

MC_0120

S-Link is a CAN-based control system used for communication between Sleipner products installed on a vessel. The system uses BACKBONE Cables as a common power and communication bus with separate SPUR Cables to each connected unit. Only one S-Link POWER cable shall be connected to the BACKBONE Cable. Units with low power consumption are powered directly from the S-Link bus.

Main advantages of S-Link system:

- Compact and waterproof plugs.

- BACKBONE and SPUR Cables have different colour coding and keying to ensure correct and easy installation. BACKBONE Cables have blue

connectors and SPUR Cables have green connectors.

- Different cable lengths and BACKBONE Extenders make the system scalable and flexible to install.

Installation of S-Link cables:

Select appropriate cables to keep the length of BACKBONE- and SPUR Cables to a minimum. In case of planned installation with total BACKBONE

Cable length exceeding 100 meters please consult your local distributor. The S-Link cables should be properly fastened when installed to avoid sharp bend radius, cable chafi ng and undesired strain on connectors. Locking mechanism on connectors must be fully closed. To ensure long lifetime, cables, T-Connectors and Extenders should not be located so that they are permanently immersed in water or other fluids. It is also recommended to install cables such that water and condensation do not run along the cables and into the connectors.

The POWER Cable should ideally be connected around the middle of the BACKBONE bus to ensure an equal voltage drop at each end of the

BACKBONE Cable. The yellow and black wire in the POWER Cable shall be connected to GND and the red wire connected to +12VDC or +24VDC.

To reduce the risk of interference, avoid routing the S-Link cables close to equipment such as radio transmitters, antennas or high voltage cables. The backbone must be terminated at each end with the END Terminator.

SPUR cables can be left unterminated to prepare for the installation of future additional equipment. In such cases, ensure to protect open connectors from water and moisture to avoid corrosion in the connectors.

(a) For demonstration vessels, or vessels kept on the water, the dealer is considered as the end user from 6 months after their launch of the vessel;

(b) The warranty period starts no later than 18 months after the fi rst launch of the vessel.

Please note that the boat manufacturer and dealer must pay particular attention to correct maintenance and service both by the products manuals as well as general good practice for the location the boat is kept in the period the boat is in their care. In cases where the 6 and 18 months grace periods for boat builders and dealers are passed, it is possible to obtain a full warranty upon inspection and approval of the warrantor or such representative.

3. Certain parts, classifi ed as wearable or service parts, are not covered by the warranty. A failure to follow the required maintenance and service work as described in the product manual render all warranty on parts or components directly or indirectly affected by this void. Please also note that for some parts, time is also a factor separately from actual operational hours.

4. This Warranty is transferable and covers the equipment for the specified warranty period.

5. The warranty does not apply to defects or damages caused by faulty installation or hook-up, abuse or misuse of the equipment including exposure to excessive heat, salt or fresh water spray, or water immersion except for equipment specifically designed as waterproof.

6. In case the equipment seems to be defective, the warranty holder (the “Claimant”) must do the following to make a claim:

(a) Contact the dealer or service centre where the equipment was purchased and make the claim. Alternatively, the Claimant can make the claim to a dealer or service centre found at www.sleipnergroup.com. The Claimant must present a detailed written statement of the nature and circumstances of the defect, to the best of the Claimant’s knowledge, including product identifi cation and serial nbr., the date and place of purchase and the name and address of the installer. Proof of purchase date should be included with the claim, to verify that the warranty period has not expired;

(b) Make the equipment available for troubleshooting and repair, with direct and workable access, including dismantling of furnishings or similar, if any, either at the premises of the Warrantor or an authorised service representative approved by the Warrantor. Equipment can only be returned to the Warrantor or an authorised service representative for repair following a pre-approval by the Warrantor’s Help Desk and if so, with the

Return Authorisation Number visible postage/shipping prepaid and at the expense of the Claimant.

7. Examination and handling of the warranty claim:

(a) If upon the Warrantor’s or authorised service Representative’s examination, the defect is determined to result from defective material or workmanship in the warranty period, the equipment will be repaired or replaced at the Warrantor’s option without charge, and returned to the

Purchaser at the Warrantor’s expense. If, on the other hand, the claim is determined to result from circumstances such as described in section

4 above or a result of wear and tear exceeding that for which the equipment is intended (e.g. commercial use of equipment intended for leisure use), the costs for the troubleshooting and repair shall be borne by the Claimant;

(b) No refund of the purchase price will be granted to the Claimant, unless the Warrantor is unable to remedy the defect after having a reasonable number of opportunities to do so. In the event that attempts to remedy the defect have failed, the Claimant may claim a refund of the purchase price, provided that the Claimant submits a statement in writing from a professional boating equipment supplier that the installation instructions of the Installation and Operation Manual have been complied with and that the defect remains.

8. Warranty service shall be performed only by the Warrantor, or an authorised service representative, and any attempt to remedy the defect by anyone else shall render this warranty void.

9. No other warranty is given beyond those described above, implied or otherwise, including any implied warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose other than the purpose for which the equipment is intended, and any other obligations on the part of the Warrantor or its employees and representatives.

10. There shall be no responsibility or liability whatsoever on the part of the Warrantor or its employees and representatives based on this Warranty for injury to any person or persons, or damage to property, loss of income or profit, or any other incidental, consequential or resulting damage or cost claimed to have been incurred through the use or sale of the equipment, including any possible failure or malfunction of the equipment or damages arising from collision with other vessels or objects.

11. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from country to country.
