Trim Tab Actuators (Standard)

Lectrotab trim tab actuators are precision-engineered to combine quiet operation with a non-hydraulic, maintenance free design. The unit is corrosion free, ensures very accurate tab positioning, provides maximum lift force, and is totally self-contained for easy installation. The actuator assembly is packaged in a non-metallic permanently sealed housing. No components need to be installed inside the boat. Most importantly, unlike hydraulic trim tabs, there is no oil to leak out. The actuator incorporates either a standard or low profile transom mounting bracket. Actuators come in 12 and 24 VDC with 8 second recommended stroke time or 4 second stroke time.

Actuators are also available with a 4 second stroke time. 4 second stroke time model numbers begin with the letter "C" for 12vdc and "D" for 24vdc.

Please note that Lectrotab recommends using the 8 second stroke time for a smoother, more controlled boat response to tab adjustments.
