Sterndrive actuator for Inboard/Outboard(I/O) vessels with power assisted steering.
Boats equipped with inboard/outboard engines and power-assisted cable steering can take advantage of the universal I/O drive unit. This innovative electromechanical drive unit operates the power steering valve the same way as the steering cable. Operates with S1 or S1G Corepacks. When you disengage the autopilot, a clutch disengages the I/O drive so you can steer the boat manually.
