Visibility in all conditions is essential for a safe, enjoyable boating experience. Schmitt & Ongaro knows that a boat's windshield wipers are only as effective as the motor that powers them. That's why the company's new Heavy Duty Waterproof Wiper Motor comes packed with features that ensure dependable, trouble-free operation—all at an economical price.

Living up to its heavy duty description, the wiper motor produces an impressive 15 N·m of torque when driving a wiper arm and blade. The motor provides changeable self-parking to right or left and a sweep angle of 40°-110º, adjustable in 10º increments. Wipers can be set to slow at 35 sweeps/min., or fast at 55 sweeps/min.

A high quality all-aluminum housing provides superior heat dissipation to help ensure the motor's reliability and longevity. Unlike those made of plastic, the rigid aluminum housing also protects the internal mechanisms and motor gears, particularly when the unit is mounted to a curved surface.

Waterproof to IP 66 ratings and CE certified for safety, the motor offers insulated grounding that makes it suitable for use on steel, aluminum, wooden or fiberglass boats. It's also EMC-protected to prevent interference with nearby electronics.

The Heavy Duty Waterproof Wiper Motor is available in 12 and 24V versions, with stainless and nickel-plated brass drive shafts in lengths of 1", 2" or 3". It can be used with arm and blade combinations of up to a 24" arm and a 24" blade. Measuring approximately 7-1/2" L x 4" W, its bolt holes match those of non-waterproof Ongaro and Bosch-type wiper motors for simple upgrades.

Schmitt & Ongaro Marine Products said it prides itself on dedication to quality and a tradition of customer service. Its wiper motors are guaranteed for three years for non-commercial use; one year for commercial use. Suggested retail prices for the Heavy Duty Waterproof Wiper Motor start at $160.65.
