Imtra IMW Wiper Control
If you’ve ever struggled to adjust the speed of your boat’s windshield wipers so that dollops of salt water don’t turn into blinding smears, you know the value of a good wiper/spray system. This 3"x3" control panel can operate as many as four wipers in two separate banks, offering three levels of intermittent operation and a “smart” wipe/wash function that’s similar to those found in automobiles. If you hold down the spray button for three seconds, the wipers kick into fast intermittent mode and stay there until three seconds after you release the button.
The panel supports the auto-parking function and works with many wiper motors from companies like Roca, AFI, Speich, and Vetus. Suggested retail price is $325.
