5kW shaft drive

Fischer Panda UK, has announced that the new, efficient ePanda Series 8.0, comprising a new 5kW electric shaft drive, will make its UK debut at The South Coast and Green Tech Boat Show. This latest advancement in electric power technology from Fischer Panda, has been developed in response to a strong demand for complete and efficient power solutions for low-powered recreational craft.

This ePanda Series 8.0 unit will be the first product to hit the UK recreational marine market from this new range and includes the newly developed 5 kW shaft drive. The air-cooled drive, which forms a fixed unit with the inverter, is brushless, sensorless and features permanent magnet technology. This makes it a low-maintenance, extremely efficient drive, weighing only 22 kg.

“Fischer Panda UK is really excited to be able to offer this new power solution to the UK leisure market. With increased awareness from day boaters, weekend sailors and blue water cruisers around the efficiency and reliability of electric systems, the ePanda Series 8.0 meets the demands of those looking for a greener, affordable and complete electric solution.” said Chris Fower, Sales & Marketing Director at Fischer Panda UK. “This new series is derived from many years of experience producing commercially graded electric motors and demand for our hybrid solutions will be a driver of more eco-friendly, efficient technology for the leisure market in the future from us.”

Fischer Panda UK offers bespoke, ready-to-install solutions for new and retrofit recreational vessels supported by a range of efficient generators from their iSeries and battery management systems from well-known brands such as Mastervolt, who will also have a presence alongside Fischer Panda at the Show.
