With the low-speed mode for diesel Volvo Penta IPS and D3, D4, D6, D9, D11 and D12 inboard shaft installation you can control your boat from almost standstill up to full speed with the same lever. This will help you during docking in tight marinas, when you are trying to catch the big fish or when you are driving in inland waterways. With this function you control the boat’s speed with the throttle/gear lever. In the first 12 degrees of the lever movement after engaging the gear, the engine will remain at idle and the boat’s speed is reduced by a slip in the transmission. The slip is from 50% to full engagement and when you push the lever further, the gearbox is fully engaged. The throttle is increased and you can control the speed with the engine rpm.
Adjust the angles and slip
Your Volvo Penta dealer can, using a Vodia tool, help you adjust both angles where you control the clutch and the slip reduction from minimum 25% to maximum 75%. This function gives you an improved maneuverability, through low speed, controlled with one lever. With the EVC panel the low-speed function can be turned on or off.
