Hydraulic Steering Systems

To select a steering system in our range, first determine the maximum horse power developed by the outboard motor(s) and the rotational direction of the propellers on installations with several motors.

  • Selection of Steering System for twin motor installations working in the same rotational direction: add the power of both motors (see example below).
  • Selection of Steering System for twin motor installations working in counter-rotation: take into account the power of one motor only + 20% (see example below).
Mounting exemples Maximum power
For the installation of one single motor 1 x 115 H.P = 115 CV
For twin motor installation 2 x 115 H.P. (same rotational direction) = 230 CV
For twin motor installation 2 x 115 H.P. (in counter rotation) : 115 + 20% = 138 CV

Now select in our range the hydraulic steering which complies with the maximum power of the motor(s) (see examples below):

Maximum power 115 CV

or

LS 226

Maximum power 230 CV

or

Maximum power 138 CV

For twin motor installations when the calculated maximum power exceeds the maximum power the steering system is given for (ex.: 2 x 200 H.P. in same rotational direction = 400 H.P.), it will be necessary to install a cylinder on each motor with a parallel hydraulic circuit (see “Types of assemblies”).

Note : For 4 blade propellers or more and for motors equipped with long or extra-long shaft, contact us.
