Brand Vetus
Voltage 12V DC to 24V DC

Please Note: This voltage converting switch has been dropped from our range.

The 160kgf and 220kgf Vetus bow thrusters are only available with a 24V DC electric motor.

By installing a BPSPE series/parallel switch in a 12V main power supply system, it is possible that:

  • The 24V bow thruster will work using 12V batteries connected in series, so as to obtain the required 24V voltage.
  • For charging, the 12V batteries are automatically connected in parallel and linked to the 12V charging system.

This series/parallel switch comes complete with pre-assembled auxiliary relays to ensure easy connection between the battery bank and the bow thruster. When the batteries installed for the bow thruster are also used for other 12V consumers, it should be remembered that the current is supplied via the charging contacts of the series/parallel switch. These contacts have a continuous duty rating of 100A, and an intermittent 20% rating of 150A. As a consequence, never use these batteries as starter batteries and never connect an anchor windlass to them.

The series/parallel switch functions completely automatically and therefore the operation of the bow thruster is as usual.
