Integrated electronics

Integrated electronics

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.
