Developed by the Schottel company the Schottel drive is a common
marine drive used in working boats such as tugs, ferries and buoy laying
vessels. The Schottel drive is a propeller that is steerable through 360
degrees therefore improving the maneuverability of any vessel.
The drive motor's power is transferred via the ship's
propeller which can swivel laterally in a Kort nozzle. Since the drive's thrust
is controlled directly and not deflected by a rudder, the Schottel drive
achieves a high level of efficiency.
The Schottel drive corresponds to the original design in
terms of function and structure. The swivel range is 2 x 90° when using a 2 x
45° servo. The drive has been designed for use with SPEED 500 to SPEED 600
motors with a max. output of 50 watts.
The shafts are made of stainless V2A steel and feature ball
bearings in the areas under significant load. The other bearings are made of
high-quality bearing metal materials. The Kort nozzle of the drive is attached
to the drive by means of a latch fastener, so the ship's propeller is easy to
clean if it gets dirty.
This new and improved version is oxidized in a RAL 3009
color and does not require any painting. The supplied propeller is oxidized in
a pear gold RAL 1036 color.
