Dometic Marine launches SeaStar Standard Trim Tab system for broader audiences
Litchfield, IL – October 25, 2021 Dometic introduces standard version of its innovative trim tab system uses intuitive dial controller to provide boaters with simple operation and superior ride control on a wide variety of boats. Dometic Marine sets a new standard by letting boaters dial-in the best ride for most boats and most conditions.
Dometic Marine has set a new standard for trim tab performance and ease of use with its new SeaStar Standard Trim Tab system.
Unveiled today at the 2021 International Boat Builder Exposition & Conference (IBEX) in Tampa, Florida, new SeaStar Standard Trim Tabs feature an intelligent actuator system and intuitive dial controller that put precision ride control at the fingertips of today’s boaters.
The dial controller at the heart of this system provides a level of control and precision not possible with tactile switches. While this controller is intelligent, it couldn’t be simpler for the boater to understand and use. The boater just turns the dial in the direction he wants to level the boat, and the actuators respond quickly and precisely to adjust the ride.
There are also single press Bow Up and Bow Down inputs for manual adjustment, and a Favorite Button that lets boaters easily save a desired tab position. This makes it easy to return to a boat’s“ sweet spot” ride position with the touch of a finger. The system’s Home Button quickly moves tabs to the home position.
Further simplifying operation are LEDs that indicate port and starboard tab positions. The dial controller also features Auto Brightness that senses ambient light conditions and adjusts the dial brightness for optimum visibility.
Dometic’s all-electric actuators reduce complexity of the system while increasing long-term reliability. For instant response, quieter operation and a better boating experience, these actuators feature a planetary gearbox, high-torque DC motor and free-wheeling Ball Screw mechanism.
For reliable performance over the long run, these actuators feature a rugged housing with a simple twopiece design that minimizes possible water intrusion points. They also feature dual housing seals, a rear seal in a protected bushing area, and a wiper that removes particles from the shaft and protects the rear seal.
Heavy-duty 12 GA. 304 stainless steel tabs complete the system. They feature 316 stainless steel marine grade fasteners, heavy-duty 14 GA. stainless steel hinges and sturdy ¼”-thick hinge pins for added strength.
