OEM Electronic: Dometic optimus E-actuator

Dometic’s industry first all-electric remote mount steering actuator won for category OEM Electronic. The Optimus Electric Steering Actuator mounts directly on the motor in place of the existing hydraulic steering cylinder. With its powerful drive train, integrated proprietary position sensors and embedded electronics, it eliminates the need for separately mounted hydraulic actuators currently used. “Ditch the hoses, ditch the hydraulic fluid, ditch the pumps, people – the Optimus E-Actuator eliminates them all,” said Lenny Rudow, one of the BWI judges as motivation for the award.
