Global launch of a number of new products to accelerate the boating electrification by integrating with smart system and connectivity service
ePropulsion, a global leader and market challenger in marine electric propulsion systems and services, will be showcasing a number of brand-new products and systems at this year’s METSTRADE 2022, demonstrating its continuous innovation in facilitating a more intelligent and reliable boating experience.
The latest model range on show at METSTRADE includes the new, DAME Award-shortlisted I-20 inboard motor, part of the new I-Series which also includes the I-10 and I-40.
Available in 10KW, 20KW and 40KW input power, the I-Series electric inboard motors are ideal for leisure marine and commercial applications on small and medium size boats. All products in the I-Series have been designed for ease of use and space-saving. The models have a compact design that integrates five functional modules of motor, gearbox, motor controller, system control unit and cooling system into a small space, taking up 60% less space than a typical combustion engine. The I-10, I-20 and I-40 are also 65% lighter than a typical combustion engine with an easy to maintain, high-performance and durable lithium iron phosphate battery.
The new I-Series is underpinned by the ePropulsion Smart System Architecture (eSSA) and is the result of ePropulsion’s enduring innovation, culminating in the creation of its smartest inboard motor yet. ePropulsion Smart System Architecture (eSSA) takes the electronic control unit (ECU) as the core, integrating the electric drive system, interactive system, battery system and cloud all into one. It features a smart and modular design to deliver a safe and reliable performance thanks to its fault diagnosis system and full redundancy design.
The I-Series also supports the integration of the ePropulsion Connectivity Service, based on boating IoT technology. It allows users to access cloud-based connectivity services without the need for additional accessories. From here, with user’s authorization, users can check everything from the location of the boat to battery level, speed and charging status, automatically generate sailing logs, authorise guests to power on for easy boat sharing remotely and even turn on the security mode and notify the user instantly should the boat be stolen.
Danny Tao, Co-founder and CEO of ePropulsion, said: “We are really excited about displaying our new I-Series at METSTRADE 2022 as we continue to invest in smart system solutions R&D and build our new inboard motor offering. METS was the first show we exhibited our very first product in 2013, so it’s always great to be back at this significant European show. The market continues to show a great reception to our products as we continue to grow in Europe.”
During the show ePropulsion will also proudly sponsor the Retail Marketing Initiative category at the IBI Boat Builder Awards, Danny Tao adds: “We understand how key marketing is when launching a new product to market and we are excited to see imagination come to life in this category; a showcase of how boat builders and shipyards have worked hard and creatively to promote boat sales in unique circumstances.”
