Fischer Panda UK, has announced that the new ePanda Series 8.0, comprising a new 5kW electric shaft motor, will make its world debut at METSTRADE 2022. This latest advancement in smart electric power technology from German manufacturer Fischer Panda, has been developed in response to a strong demand for complete power solutions for low-powered recreational craft.

Comprising an ePanda Drive, ePanda Power Unit and ePanda Control Unit, the ePanda Series 8.0 will be the first product to hit the recreational marine market and includes the newly developed 5 kW shaft motor. The air-cooled drive, that 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 has been producing highly robust, commercially graded electric motors for over 20 years, which are widely considered as the best in market. In response to the growing demand for complete electric solutions from recreation boat builders, the new ePanda series is derived from these many years of experience and will be a driver of future technology in this arena,” said Chris Fower, Sales & Marketing Director at Fischer Panda UK.

Fischer Panda UK offers ready-to-install solutions supported by a range of battery management systems from well-known brands such as Mastervolt, which specifically support the requirements of the UK marine market.

The new 5kW electric motor for 48V systems will be shown alongside the ePanda Series 8.0 for the first time at the Fischer Panda stand 02.509 at METSTRADE in Amsterdam, from 15 to 17 November 2022.
