eCycle, Inc, a manufacturer of high-efficiency brushless motors and generators, is pleased to announce two new marine products: A 10kW Marine Auxiliary Power Unit and an Electric power head for Yamaha lower units. eCycle's marine products represent the company's dedication to environmentally responsible boating. Both products enable reductions in operational and maintenance costs as well as emissions.

  •     Marine Auxiliary Power Unit -- The marine auxiliary power units (APU) are based on the Kubota Z602 and D902 Super Mini Series diesel engines. Depending on the application, they can be configured to produce up to 10kW at regulated low voltage (14 or 28VDC) with current up to 400A continuous. These units part of a hybrid propulsion system or to generate AC power via an inverter.
  •     Electric Powerhead for Yamaha -- eCycle integrates its proven brushless motor technology into readily available Yamaha 6, 8 and 9.9hp outboard lower unit. The result is a reliable, safe and economical electric propulsion solution for a wide variety of boats and applications. Performance is rated at 9hp at 24 volts. The electric outboard is ideal for fishing boats, sailboats and many commercial applications.

The innovative brushless SolidSlot™ motor/generator is at the heart of the company's marine products. SolidSlot™ is named for its design, which replaces traditional copper windings with solid bars of aluminum linked together with copper end turns. This enables eCycle's marine products to deliver improvements in performance while simultaneously improving efficiency and reliability.

The electric powerhead for Yamaha will be on display in the Inland Marine Booth #36 at the Providence Boat Show in downtown Providence, Rhode Island January 11-14, 2007.
