TWIN DISC REDEFINES MARINE POWER STEERING
Redefining power steering, Twin Disc offers its next-generation E-STEER™. This state-of-the-art control solution connects the helm to hydraulic-powered rudder(s) electronically and delivers a whole new driving experience.
E-STEER provides adaptive resistance through Speed Sensing technology. As the boat’s speed increases, the helm becomes firmer and more agile, similar to the effect in a top-end automobile. When it’s time to throttle back, the wheel is light and highly responsive.
Driving can be tiring when the wheel reacts to every rudder movement, especially in a choppy sea. With E-STEER, the helm is smooth and vibration-free. Holding a steady course is effortless.
The new E-STEER system also adds Dynamic Rudder Control, which constantly—and proportionally—adjusts the range of movement based on the vessel’s speed. This prevents the extreme, unsafe rudder angles and improves steering.
Housed within the helm console, the self-contained E-STEER unit is straightforward to install on new builds or refits. Gone are the days of checking reservoirs, ram seals, fittings and countless yards of hydraulic line—and leaks, that invariably occur in the most inaccessible spots. Instead, wires connect the wheel and DC-powered hydraulic cylinders, providing instant, precise steering control.
For almost 100 years, Twin Disc has made boating safer and more enjoyable. The company manufactures a wide range of innovative transmissions, joystick and electronic controls, and other performance equipment.
