Multisteer Outboard Hydraulic Steering System includes
1. Hydraulic Balanced Cylinder: The cylinder provides linear movement to the engine or rudder depending on the application, steering the boat to starboard or port.
2. Hydraulic Manual Helm Pump: This is an axial piston-driven pump which draws and pushes the flow of steering fluid when the wheel mounted on the helm shaft is rotated. Its volume determines the number of turns required hard over to guide the engine. A lock valve prevents untimely engine movement when the helm is not operated and a pressure relief valve protects the system against unusual pressure increase.
3. Hydraulic Hose Tube: The Hose Tube is designed to transfer steering fluid from helm pump to cylinder and vice versa. Hoses are flexible so as to be routed through complex or small bending radii and are tested at a higher pressure than maximum working pressure to prevent oil leakage.
4. Hydraulic Steering Fluid: Hydraulic Steering Fluid is required, where the helm pump while being turned pushes the fluid, such that it travels through the tubing and displaces the cylinder.
