Zipwake Series S, the world's first inexpensive dynamic trim-control system, incorporates a state-of-the-art family of durable, fast-acting interceptors. The system is fully automatic, and is designed to significantly enhance performance, fuel economy, comfort and safety when accelerating, turning or running in a seaway. Defender offers the full line of Zipwake interceptors.

A Kit Box includes all parts needed to install a Dynamic Trim Control System with one pair of fast-acting interceptors, or blades. Choose from four different Kit Boxes with straight interceptors - one for each interceptor length - and two different Kit Boxes with chine interceptors. Zipwake also makes V-shaped and Tunnel models. The Zipwake Dynamic Trim Control System comes complete with everything you need, including all necessary parts and software for active motion control.

Any base installation can be expanded with up to two extra pairs of Series S interceptors, thus allowing a total of six interceptors without any need for additional connectors or power supply.

All components have been meticulously engineered to withstand impact and avoid water ingress, minimizing the risk of costly maintenance and downtime. Interceptor, or blade, actuation takes place by way of a calibration-free submersible electric servo within the interceptor unit. Its natural water cooling provides excellent working conditions for the brushless DC servo motor, which runs on 12-32 volts. The blade stroke takes 1.5 seconds, outperforming conventional trim tabs by at least a factor of 5.

Installation is made easy with an integral mounting plate and the option of a concealed or above-waterline, self-sealing, thru-hull cable fitting. The preferred mounting option is achieved by simply routing the servo cable differently. Each interceptor comes with the thru-hull cable fitting, cable covers and a practical drill template.

Trim systems have come a long way and it is important for customers to make sure they are getting the correct system for that application. A good starting point would be a minimum of 30% coverage of the transom. The more coverage beyond this, the better the system will perform. See detailed sizing and Z-Factor information here

Zipwake advises putting the interceptors as far outboard as possible, as this is where they are most effective for roll control.

Recommendation: When choosing which interceptors to use, it is recommended to combine units to span as much of the beam as possible for the best operating results. With Zipwake's precision controlled interceptors it is not possible to span too much of the beam.
