New Ultrajet UJ410 Released

Wednesday, July 18, 2007
Ultra Dynamics has announced the release a new waterjet model the UltraJet UJ410 -- with a 410 mm diameter impeller – which fits neatly into the middle of its UltraJet range of waterjets, providing more options between the UJ376 and UJ451. All components on the new model are plug-and-play and mounted on jet, including the oil cooler, oil pump, sensors and valves, and hydraulic steering and reverse cylinders, keeping installation for the boat builder to a minimum. The UltraJet 410 is available in either zero or five degree shaft angle options to suit different engine alignments and is compatible with a variety of engine models, driven either direct or via a gearbox. As with all UltraJets the UJ410 can be fitted with their new JetMaster Joystick Control system driven by a PLC (Programmable Logic controller). The PLC converts the joystick commands to boat movements harnessing the full benefits of waterjets. One hand maneuvering gives total control of the boat and the ability to move in any direction. Docking and backing into slips has been made simple (with same sense steering) just by moving the joystick in the direction you want the boat to move to.
