The Dometic Optimus Outboard Electric Steering Actuator ushers in a new era for marine vessel steering and control. This ground-breaking product is an all-electric steering actuator for outboard engines, developed exclusively for use with our Optimus Joystick and Electronic Power Steering systems. It's easy to install yet technologically advanced, providing high performance, energy efficiency and season-after-season reliability.
The Dometic Optimus Electric Steering Actuator mounts directly on the outboard in place of the present hydraulic cylinder. The powerful drive train, position sensor, brake and electronics are all embedded in the electric steering actuator. This means no Pump Control Module (PCM), no hydraulic pump, no hoses, hydraulic cylinders and fluid, and no more purging the system.
High-torque, high-efficiency brushless DC electric motor
Programmable steering settings, including adjustable speed-sensitive lock-to-lock turns, help ensure safe steering.
Quick and easy installation, with just three CAN bus connections plus power
Virtually maintenance free
Safe and reliable performance under harsh fresh and saltwater conditions
Meets and exceeds all marine standards, including NMMA, ABYC, CE and SAE electrical and environmental requirements
Built-in functionality with Dometic’s SeaWays Autopilot, Optimus 360 Joystick Control and SeaStation GPS Anchoring
