New 60hp Capsize PIRS model
Barrus has expanded its patented technology to extend its Capsize PIRS outboard engine range and introduce a 60hp four-stroke model.
PIRS was first introduced in the late 1970s for the RNLI and armed services and enables an outboard motor to restart following submersion by draining the water from the engine.
Over the years, the special products division at Barrus has worked on the company’s two-stroke offering leading up to the latest Gen 2 FAST PIRS and now the four-stroke Capsize PIRS adaptation.
“The Capsize PIRS development has been both exciting and challenging and we’re now pleased to be able to offer this fantastic new product to benefit our demanding customers,” commented David Etherington-Smith, special products division, E. P. Barrus sales manager.
Capsize PIRS is fully automatic and integrated within an engine’s electronic control unit.
The system ensures that no water can enter the engine and is operated without removing the engine cover as this can contaminate the oil and cause serious component failure.
The new Capsize PIRS model will replace the previous, now obsolete two-stroke engine with more environmentally friendly, durable power.
