The Powertrim assistant is an option for Aquamatic with Volvo Penta’s EVC platform – Electronic Vessel Control. With the Powertrim assistant your Aquamatic drive will trim automatically according to your settings. The system is delivered with standard settings, but you can easily make your personal settings for rpm and trim angle in order to optimize the function for your boat model.
Five set points
The system has five set points for drive angles at five different engine rpm. You improve acceleration, top speed and comfort on your boat and you can fully focus on driving. It also results in better fuel economy and lower overall exhaust emissions.
The drive is trimmed in during acceleration to get you fast onto the plane and then gradually trimmed out at higher engine rpm. You get perfect visibility and a comfortable ride.
If you need to change your running attitude you can, at any time, override the Powertrim assistant by using the manual powertrim buttons on the EVC panel. Next time you adjust the engine rpm, as it passes one of the set points, the Powertrim assistant will trim the drive back to the preset trim position.
- The drive is automatically trimmed at the specified engine rpm.
- Improved driving safety.
- Automatically improves comfort.
- Automatically gets the boat quicker onto the plane.
- Fully manual override at any time.
