Teleflex Premium Mechanical Steering Overview NFB and HPS




Technical Reference Manual





Premium


Outboard Steering



PRO RACK NFB TWIN CABLE SYSTEM

NFB systems are NOT for
use with power-assisted steering.


No FeedBack Steering for Outboards


Steering loads exist in all outboard-powered boats. These steering loads are actually turning energy from your engine's propeller. NFB steering locks out the prop feedback load which causes hard-to-handle steering, without affecting horsepower. With NFB the wheel doesn't turn until you turn it.


HPS RACK SINGLE CABLE SYSTEM

HPS systems are for use
with power-assisted steering.

HPS for Stern Drives



Designed exclusively for boats with power assisted steering, HPS steering reduces the backlash (free-play or "slop" felt at the wheel) often associated with power steered boats by up to 50%.

HPS systems are designed to handle the full steering load and can serve as the manual backup system in the event of power steering failure. Helms fit industry-standard Teleflex dash cutouts for Safe-T, The Rack and Tilt.

HPS cables use Teleflex TFXTREME technology to deliver smooth feel and sure response with minimal lost motion.
