This product is for conventionally driven vessels. The system uses a constant velocity joint to self-align the shaft. Thrust taken up on the engine from the propeller invariably changes the angle of the shaft line, particularly when the engine uses soft rubber mounts. Using a single SigmaDrive replacement coupling will ensure the shaft is correctly aligned at all times, especially under high load. The result, reductions in many cases of around 50% in noise and vibration.
The STS uses a thrust bearing, to resist the axel force of the propeller, coupled up to a pair of constant velocity SigmaDrives. The intimidate shaft from the transmission to the thrust bearing of any length will work at angles of up to 6 degrees. This helps the alignment of the engine to the drive train permitting the use of soft mounts on the engine.
D- Sigma is a replacement Cardan drive also coupled to a pair of constant velocity joints and can replace existing Cardan shaft for Water jet Drives and Pod Drive propulsion systems.
