Photo Courtesy of Oceanline Shipyard Jastram Model B Steering Gear Jastram B Model Actuators are double-acting equal displacement cylinders, which are directly connected to a tiller. When the B Model is actuated it moves the tiller, which in turn moves the rudder. The actuator sizing is primarily dependent on the maximum rudder torque required. Once the required rudder torque is known the appro- priate actuator size can be selected. Calculating the rudder torque is complex. An incorrect calculation can result in failure of the steering system. Torque calculations should be confirmed by a naval architect or designer. For more information on actuator sizing please contact your local Jastram distributor. Type Approved Product; see details on back page
