The range of Seaeye Marine Thrusters is the culmination of Seaeye's proven brushless DC motor technology and impressive new developments in magnetics and materials sciences. Communication facilitates the rapid integration of the thrusters into all manner of subsea applications from ROV and AUV propulsion to prime mover applications such as pumps. With simplicity and versatility in mind, the range of thrusters include numerous innovative features that makes them stand out from similar thrusters for performance, reliability and ease of maintenance. For individual specifications and data refer to the respective thruster data sheet.

Today, all Seaeye thrusters incorporate:

  • Wide choice of thruster configurations
  • Self contained drive electronics within the thruster housing
  • Proven DC brushless motor technology
  • Telemetry control allows rapid response
  • Fouled propellor detector and reset circuitry
  • Under voltage protection of the electronics
  • Integral pressure compensation for full ocean depths of operation
