Cruise Control for Your Trim Tabs

February 2017 Multimedia

Bennett Marine’s new AutoTrim Pro (ATP) automatically and actively levels the pitch and roll of most boats with trim tab systems. With the system installed, simply press one of two user programmable “Favorite” buttons and the system regulates the boat’s trim angle based on settings selected by the operator, and then holds that angle across a variety of speeds and shifting conditions. Just like how a car’s cruise control buttons allow you to set the speed, and then disengage when you tap the brakes, the operator can take manual control at any time by simply pressing any button on the Helm Display.

As an all-in-one trim tab control system, ATP combines a myriad of essential features into an easy-to-use, space-saving helm display. Features include automatic trim tab control, manual trim tab control, automatic tab retraction, and trim tab position indication.

Handy features in Manual or Auto mode include one-touch “All Up” and “All Down” buttons. LED trim tab position indicators clearly display each trim tab’s position, and flash to show automatic actuation activity in real time, with day and night brightness settings and two (2) Favorites settings for auto trim mode. The Auto tab retraction feature automatically retracts tabs when the boat’s ignition is turned off to curtail damage during hauling, trailering and storage.

Bennett Marine’s AutoTrim Pro is a performance upgrade you can really feel, engineered to make your boating experience even more enjoyable. AutoTrim Pro is designed to minimize bow rise which improves planing time and visibility. ATP also improves listing, chine walking, and porpoising–which, even if the words are unfamiliar, you have almost certainly experienced the things they represent.   

The ATP system consists of two main components, the Control Unit which functions as the system processor, and the Helm Display which is the user interface. Installation is straightforward with plug-and-play connectors, and ATP is compatible with any Bennett trim tab system, and many other manufacturers’ systems such as Lenco and Lectrotab.

Adding ATP to existing trim tab systems is an inexpensive installation at your local dealer, and a straightforward task for a do-it-yourself boater with basic mechanical inclination.
