The new Whisperprop® formula of success by Fischer Panda
EasyBox Drive System = Easy installation & high efficiency
Thanks to continuous research and development, Fischer Panda Germany has been able to bring highly reliable electric motors for propulsion systems on the market.
The new Fischer Panda Aziprop and Shaft motors are available as 10 kW/48V at 600 rpm and as 20kW/48V at 1200 rpm and feature a very high torque of 160 Nm.
Any commercial propeller up to 22" (35 mm ISO 1:10) can be used for the different performances and speeds; however, compared to the conventional diesel engine a propeller with a large diameter is always recommended to increase the efficiency.
The electric drive motors meet all essential requirements of the applicable European directives and standards. They are operated at extra-low voltage < 60 V DC. Maximum safety in use and installation is guaranteed.
The Fischer Panda Aziprop motor can be operated with the air-cooled EasyBox. Additional water cooling is not required which also reduces the installation effort.
The EasyBox comprises motor controller, a DC-DC converter (48V to 24V) and all fuses and connections of the system.
Via plug connections the EasyBox is connected with the throttle and the display.
The battery bank and power supply for the electric motors are directly connected with the EasyBox via screw connections. The skipper can choose between the modes "Eco" or "Regeneration". The EasyBox allows the skipper to limit the speed via the "Eco" switch. This reduces the maximum possible battery load and longer distances are possible. When the boat is sailing and the "regeneration" mode has been selected, the batteries can be recharged.
The EasyBox can be used in a battery-only system or in a parallel hybrid system. Its purchase price starts from EUR 8,815.00 excl. VAT.
Further information and functions can be accessed with a PC Connection.
"We offer skippers a variety of possibilities with our new electric motors and the EasyBox," explains Martin Mews, Director of Development for diesel-electric drive systems, "The EasyBox 20kW / 48V is also suited for a motor with a speed of 600 rpm and a torque of 320Nm. Besides the high torque this system is very sturdy. It is particularly suited for passenger vessels or for commercial use."
