CONTROL PANEL

Zipwake’s stylish control panel is carefully designed to be user-friendly and intuitive to allow the helmsman to focus on the right thing – enjoying the boat ride!

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 un- comfortable and dangerous boat pitch and roll.

Push the AUTO BUTTON - and GO!

The system provides continuous feedback of boat speed, turning radius, pitch and roll angle, as well as the interceptors’ positions, on a 2.8” sunlight- readable wide viewing color display.

The panel’s waterproof design withstands harsh marine conditions in open boats or on a flybridge. The sockets for connecting peripherals are located on the rear of the panel. In addition to connectors for the system’s distribution unit and multiple control panels, external GPS and NMEA 2000 equipment can be connected. The system can also be connected to the ignition key for automatic system power-on. A waterproof cap conceals the USB interface that allows for future software upgrades and ensures that the Zipwake Dynamic Trim Control System is future-proof.

INTERCEPTORS

Series E is a family of large, fast-acting interceptors that includes 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 ft.

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.

For best effect, different size interceptors can be combined to span as much of the transom edge as possible. A full beam is always the optimal arrangement from a lift-to-drag ratio point of view.

Tunnel interceptors for mounting above propeller tunnels

Tunnel-shaped interceptors provide the perfect lift-force solution for hulls with propeller tunnels. In contrast to straight interceptors, the tunnel interceptor’s constant radius curvature allows mounting above the propeller tunnel to fully or partially use the otherwise unutilized part of the beam for lift generation.

The three tunnel models with different radii, R500, R600 and R800, make sure that most large boat propeller tunnels can be covered with negligible deviation between hull and interceptor curvature. Tunnel interceptors can be included in new installations, or retro-fitted to systems already installed.

Chine interceptors for maximum lift

Chine interceptors provide a unique means of maximizing pitch and roll motion control by utilizing the furthest outboard surfaces of the hull bottom for lift generation.

As a rule, the lift effect of a chine interceptor matches the lift of a straight interceptor one size larger mounted inboard of the chine, making them the go-to choice when selecting interceptors.

Chine interceptors are particularly useful when transom space is limited abeam of swim platform lifts, waterjets, surface drives, or outboards.

INTERCEPTOR FRONTS

A front assembly comprises the interceptor’s front housing, blade and assisting roller blade, the small parts that deal with blade linear motion and the set of screws required to mount the front to the back plate. The front assemblies of the Series E interceptors have been designed to mitigate further damage to the interceptor in the rare event of contact with floating debris. Each interceptor model’s front assembly is therefore available as a spare part.

EXTERNAL GPS ANTENNA

The Zipwake external GPS antenna is a 5Hz, 20-channel receiver with excellent reception that provides accurate and rapid vessel position and speed updates. Vessel speed is a necessary input for the Zipwake’s automatic motion controller. The antenna has a rugged construction, is fully waterproof and can be mast or surface mounted on any vessel.

The external GPS is optional and intended for use when no other strong GPS signal is available for the Zipwake system, e.g. when the vessel has just one helm station with a shielding top (canopy) and lacks other accessible GPS sources. In this case, the external GPS antenna is a good solution. Its 5 m cable can be extended up to 15 m using Zipwake extension cables. It connects easily to the connector marked EXT GPS on the back of the control panel. The external GPS can be connected to any control panel installed in the system.
