The recommendations given in this document are guidelines ONLY, and Sleipner strongly recommends that advice is obtained from a person familiar with the particular vessel and applicable regulations.

This document contains general installation instructions intended to support experienced installers. If you are not skilled in this type of work, please contact professional installers for assistance.

If required by local regulation, electrical work must be done by a licensed professional.

Appropriate health and safety procedures must be followed during installation.

Faulty installation of Sleipner products will render all warranties given by Sleipner Motor AS.

Ensure appropriate access to Sleipner products during installation planning for service, inspection and component replacement.

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.

For electric motor thrusters

MC_0031

• The thruster must NOT be installed in compartments that require ignition proof electric equipment. If necessary, make a separate compartment.

(NB: Sleipner Ignition Protected systems are tested and rated accordance with ISO 8846 and can be installed in areas with possible explosive

gases.)

• When installing the thruster electric motor in small compartments, ensure the compartment is dry and well ventilated to allow for cooling of the

electric motor.

• If the height of the room you are installing the thruster is limited, the thruster can be installed horizontally or at any angle in-between.

- If the electro motor is positioned more than 30 degrees off vertical, it must be supported separately.

- Beware of keeping installation within advised measurements. No part of the propeller or gear leg must be outside the tunnel.

• The electric motor, components and cables must be mounted so they remain dry at all times.

• Do not fi nish the inside of the tunnel with a layer of gel-coat/ topcoat or similar. There is only room for a thin coat of primer and two layers of anti-

fouling between the tunnel and the props.

• Don’t install the electric motor close to easily flammable objects or equipment as it will reach over 100°C before the temperature switch is

activated.

• Do not store items close to the thruster motor. Any loose items near the thruster motor is a potential fi re hazard and can cause undesired short-

circuiting.

• Do not lift it by internal cable connections, main terminals.

• The thruster power supply circuit must include the recommended sized fuse and a battery isolation switch.

• The electric/ hydraulic motor must be handled with care. Do not rest the thruster motor on its drive shaft as its weight can damage the shaft.

For DC electric motors

MC_0426

• The electro motor will generate some carbon dust so any storage compartments must be separated from the thruster to prevent nearby items

becoming dusty/ dirty. (NB: IP version motors generate dust but are enclosed.)

Lithium Batteries for on/off thrusters models SR, SE and SE-IP

MC_0501

• High capacity lithium batteries are capable of supplying a higher operating voltage to the thruster than SR, SE and SE-IP thrusters are rated for.

Running thrusters at higher than rated voltage will reduce operating time, increase wear and damage the thruster. Operating the thruster

outside specifi ed ratings will void warranty.

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.

 1 

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.)

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.)

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.)

(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.

1. Mark the tunnel centreline and the boat’s centreline. (NB: Install the gear leg and propeller as shown for the thrust direction to correspond with the control panel. Position gear leg with the P-mark facing port and the S-mark facing starboard.)

2. Use the gasket or template (recommended) to mark the hole centres and double-check the measurements. The centre hole MUST be placed using the boat centreline as shown. (NB: All holes must be in-line with the tunnels’ centreline for correct installation, clearance between the propeller and the tunnel is minimal.)

3. Drill the main centre hole followed by the two screw-holes.

4. Smooth the surface of the tunnel. A rough surface will cause possible failure/movement of the gear leg. The motor bracket must rest steadily on the tunnel.

1. Install the motor onto the motor bracket ensuring the couplings are engaged together correctly (top and bottom). (NB: The motor can be placed in all directions on the motor bracket. However, ensure the cable terminals are accessible for electrical installation later.)

2. If you are installing the motor at an angle of more than 30 degrees off vertical, the motor will require separate/ additional support.

3. Fasten the bolts holding the motor to the motor bracket with the above torque.

4. Check the drive shafts are engaged by rotating the propeller. (NB: Rotating the propellers can be hard due to the gear reduction and the motor, however the propeller must be able to rotate via hand power.)

IMPORTANT

The thruster motor assembly must be protected using suitable covering to avoid dust/debris ingress from fabrication/maintenance/shipbuilding operations. On completion of operations, the cover must be removed before operating the thruster.

Electrical Installation

MC_0143

1. Plan the location of electrical components before starting with the electrical installation. Main electrical components will typically consist of battery, fuse, main switch and thruster motor, see Wiring Diagram chapter for an overview.

Sleipner offers both manual main switches and Automatic Main Switches (AMS). Sleipner AMS is controlled by the control panel in addition to the option of manual operation. Turning on the control panel also turn on the automatic main switch. When the control panel is turned off the automatic main switch is turned off. This ensures that the control electronics and motor are only energized when the control panel is turned on.

Sleipner offers AMS supporting either S-Link or ON/OFF control panels. Note that the AMS requires a separate power supply which should be protected by a dedicated fuse. Ensure to select an AMS with a voltage rating according to the chosen motor- and battery voltage.

Electrical products installed in gasoline engine spaces or other areas potentially exposed for explosive gases must be Ignition Protected.

Products installed in such locations should conform to the ISO 8846, SAE J1171 or UL 1500 standard.

Common ground connection is required for dual thruster installations with two battery banks.

2. Estimate the total length of the power cables to determine the recommended cross-section. The total power cable length is defi ned as the distance from the positive battery terminal, via fuse, main switch, and thruster motor, and all the way back to the negative battery terminal.

3. Find the recommended power cable cross-section for the installation by using the estimated total power cable length and the table shown in the chapter Electrical Reference Guide.

4. Select the recommended fuse size by using the table shown in the chapter Electrical Reference Guide.

5. Use an appropriate dimensioned battery with Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) according to recommendations given in the Electrical Reference Guide chapter. Battery voltage must be compliant with the voltage rating of the thruster motor and control circuitry. The capacity and rated discharge current of the battery should be according to the rated nominal current drawn and the typical duty cycle for thruster operation. The nominal current drawn is listed in the Electrical Reference Guide chapter.

The actual voltage at the motor while running the thruster determines the motor RPM and thrust. Using a smaller cross-section than recommended or a low-capacity battery could reduce performance.

Installing a battery close to the thruster reduces the length of the power cables and potentially increases the performance, due to lower voltage drop in the power cables. For installations on large vessels with bow and stern thrusters or catamarans a dedicated battery for each thruster should be considered.

6. Install and connect the electrical components according to the applicable Wiring Diagram chapter.

For safety reasons it is always recommended to install a fuse and a main switch on the power cables and as close as possible to the positive battery terminal. The main switch must be installed such that it is easily accessible so that the thruster can be electrically disconnected to a safe state when not on-board or in the case of an emergency.

For dual thruster systems using only one battery bank a dedicated fuse and main switch should be installed for each thruster. These should be installed close to the battery bank.

Follow the instructions in the Motor Lug Connection chapter when fastening the power cables to the motor.

7. Fuse and main switch should be installed according to the installation manual accompanying the products.

8. Install the control panel according to the instructions in the Installation Guide included with the control panel.

WARNING

After all electrical connections have been completed, turn off main switch and check the following with an ohmmeter:

1. There is no electrical connection between motor flange and the positive terminal on the motor.

2. There is no electrical connection between motor flange and the negative terminal on the motor.

If unsure contact skilled personnel.

Warranty statement

MC_0024

1. Sleipner Motor AS (The “Warrantor”) warrants that the equipment (parts, materials, and embedded software of products) manufactured by the Warrantor is free from defects in workmanship and materials for purpose for which the equipment is intended and under normal use and maintenance service (the “Warranty”).

2. This Warranty is in effect for two years (Leisure Use) or one year (Commercial and other Non-leisure Use) from the date of delivery/purchase by the end user, with the following exceptions;

(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.
