WORLD LEADING TECHNOLOGY

WORLD’S FIRST RIB WITH A FULLY INTEGRATED ELECTRIC DRIVE

ADVANCED ELECTRIC RIB TECHNOLOGY

Specifically designed to be an electric RIB from day one, the Pulse 63 incorporates some of the most advanced electric propulsion technology available whilst also introducing new benefits to RIB drivers such as increased acceleration, excellent manoeuvrability and low running costs.

RAD PROPULSION

FORWARD THINKING TECHNOLOGY

The RS-developed E-40 Electric Hubless Rim Drive provides instant acceleration, featherlight control and hydrodynamic performance on the water. Plus, it’s simplicity results in less noise, reduced vibration, reduced weight and lower maintenance.

  

      • 40kW (continuous) Hubless Drive

      • Compatible with 400V (nominal) system

      • 300mm propeller diameter

      • Zero emissions

SMART THROTTLE

RAD Throttle unit with built-in RADLink enables precise thrust control. Reduced maintenance requirements also result in lower running costs.

100% ELECTRIC

Zero-emissions, smooth operation, low noise, and no refueling. Plus, with instant power, acceleration is quick off the mark and energy efficiency on point.

EFFICIENT HULL FORM

The unique hull form provides a smooth ride and creates an air cushion effect, making the cockpit much drier in rough or wavy seas.

AGILE TRIM

Electrical tilt system allows the drive to be trimmed during use but also for the drive to be raised to horizontal when accessing shallow water.

INCREASED SAFETY

The Bluetooth-enabled RADTag acts as an emergency kill-cord for man overboard safety and allows different speed and geo limits to be set for different users. Plus, there are no external rotating blades.

REAL-TIME MONITORING

Cloud based data analysis enables the RAD Propulsion e-40 to monitor itself giving you optimal information on range and remaining charge.

HYPERDRIVE BATTERIES

POWERFUL, COMPACT AND EFFICIENT

The Pulse 63 electric RIB uses a bank of powerful Lithium-Ion batteries. Sourced from a well-established automotive supplier, they have been sealed and marinized to IP54. They are also stored in a specially designed air and watertight box to prevent moisture contamination. 

The 46kw Hyperdrive GEN4 14-Cell (52Vnom) Lithium-Ion Modular Pack delivers an impressive 400 volts of power to the groundbreaking RAD propulsion hubless rim drive and can be re-charged 2000 times at +85%. Each battery is individually controlled, conditioned, and managed by the RS-developed PDU. You can also use the RADlink to monitor performance.

RAD TAG

SMART SAFETY AND LOCATION MONITORING

The smart Bluetooth-enabled RADTag acts as an emergency kill-cord for man overboard safety. It can also be programmed to limit distance and/or speed for different users. This is particularly useful in commercial and coaching settings, but also for leisure users wanting to restrict younger family members to lower-speed performance modes.

 

RANGE MONITORING

NEVER GET CAUGHT SHORT OF POWER

The touch screen interface of the Pulse 63 electric RIB can be connected to a third-party chart plotter or RAD mobile app to display system health, performance modes, battery capacity and remaining range at all times. Accessed via the main console, the driver has all the information they need right at their fingertips.
