Wiper Motor Now Has More Sweep Angles, Torque

(Press Release)
Wednesday, March 07, 2012

The Heavy Duty 2 Speed Wiper Motor from Schmitt & Ongaro Marine Products has been improved in many respects. The wiper motor now has twice as many sweep angle settings─40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100 and 110.°  This enables users to better adjust how far the wipers move to best fit their particular windshield.
This motor's torque has been increased by 15% to more efficiently drive the wiper arm and blade. Increasing the torque from 7.4 ft-lbs. to 8.5 ft-lbs. allows the wiper to better hold up in abusive situations such as running on a dry windshield.
Able to power wiper arms up to 24" and blades up to 22," the motor's sweep can be set from the left or right and to self-park on either side. Easily adjusted for a user's application, the wiper comes pre-set with a 110° sweep, with a right sweep and park.  For boat builders or bulk orders, Schmitt & Ongaro will pre-set the motors to their specifications.
The black powder-coated housing is mounted with 304 stainless steel hardware. The 316 stainless steel shaft is encased in a chrome-plated brass housing.  For safety, the heavy duty motor and magnets feature an isolated ground for metal, plastic or wooden boats.  Available in 12V or 24V models, customers have a choice of 1.5", 2.5" or 3.5" shafts.
