Scope of delivery Pod 1.0 EVO

 

The price is for the engine.

In addition, you need a battery (1.28 kWh Spirit battery or 2 kWh E40), charger and controller (see picture).

There are also optional accessories (cables, switches) that is a good addition depending on the boat.




The EVO-lution - changes to the Spirit POD Drive

 

       The POD Drive 1.0 EVO is the new premium model from ePropulsion. The production of the original Pod Drive is               now finally discontinued.

       The Pod Drive EVO runs on 48 volts. So you can also use the larger E-series batteries from ePropulsion or third-party           batteries.

       All new EVO models have recuperation function and can be connected to the new security bracelet.

      On request, folding and rotary blade propellers can now also be supplied. Please contact us about this!




Pod Drive 1.0 EVO motor - high safety

 

   
    Emergency stop magnetic chip on the remote control - when removed from the throttle,          the electric motor stops immediately.

    The built-in LCD display on the remote control provides accurate battery and runtime            information.

    Battery alarm: An acoustic warning signal informs you of a low battery status

    The floating battery cannot sink and floats on top!

    Housing and plug connection are watertight to IP 67.

    An integrated protection mechanism stops the motor or reduces the speed if the Pod                Drive 1.0 EVO encounters resistance underwater.


 


 

Drive 1.0 pod motor for sailboat - ease of use

 

 
     Stepless speed control using Bluetooth wireless control. One press is enough to start the                     electrically driven motor.

     Extensive accessories and charging technology such as 12 V or solar charger.

     Alternatively, a side-mounted control lever with a separate display is available.

     The exchangeable battery with a comfortable carrying handle can be brought onto the boat with         minimal time expenditure. Then the cable from the flange motor is connected to the housing.

     Control is possible forwards and backwards thanks to the convenient remote control. The                   communication runs via an integrated 3.5 inch compact module.

     Installation should be carried out by a specialist.



 

Integrated recuperation technology

 


The EVO series features an integrated recuperation feature (energy recovery).

This innovative technology means the outboard recharges the battery under sail. At a speed of 3-10 kn, the power regeneration system can recharge the battery.

Above 10 knots, the motor switches to protection mode and charging power does not increase further.

* Recuperation data is based on real tests with the anti-ventilation plate installed.






Performance

 

At the core of Spirit 1.0 EVO electric outboard motor, it’s a 1kW BLDC motor, equivalent to 3HP.
