Introduced at the end of last year at MetsTrade, Zipwake Series E interceptors are the new large, fast-acting interceptors that include three straight, three tunnel and two chine models. Their blade rate and stroke are 40 mm/s and 60 mm respectively.
The large, modular design made for mass production means the interceptors are durable, affordable and particularly well adapted to any planing or semi-planing boat between 50-100 feet.
Zipwake Series E interceptors: easy installation
All components have been meticulously engineered to withstand impact and avoid water ingress, minimizing the risk of costly maintenance and downtime. Interceptor or blade actuation takes place by way of two calibration-free submersible electric servos in the interceptor unit.
Natural water cooling provides excellent working conditions for the brushless DC servo motors, which run on 12-32 volts.
Installation is made easy with an integral mounting plate and the option of a concealed or above- waterline, self-sealing, thru-hull cable fitting. The preferred mounting option is achieved by simply routing the servo cable as shown below. Each interceptor comes with the thru-hull cable fitting, cable cover and a practical drill template.
User-friendly control panel
Zipwake’s stylish control panel has been carefully designed to be user-friendly and intuitive to allow the helmsman to focus on the right thing.
The panel’s two unique control wheels provide easy, quick and intuitive manual control of running trim, heel or heading. However, the system normally operates in automatic control mode, which is enabled by a single press on the AUTO button. In this mode, the built-in high-frequency GPS, 3D gyro sensors and robust motion controller automatically ensure dynamic elimination of uncomfortable and dangerous boat pitch and roll.
