Harken® single and multifunction valve panels are used by larger cruisers to control systems like backstays, boom vangs, and outhauls. Available as kits, single-function panels are offered with 2-liter reservoirs, multifunction panels with 4-liter reservoirs. Both panels come with pumps, handles, gauge, pressure relief, and release functions. Panels come standard with a 1- or 2-speed pump. A 3-speed pump is available on request.
The single-function valve is a simple on/off system that can operate the cylinder remotely, allowing the user to tension the backstay cylinder from the cockpit. Multifunction panels can operate up to four cylinders remotely, with a selector handle choosing 1 of 4 functions. Valve panels feature an easy-to-read gauge and a finger-controlled knob for pressure release.
O-ring gasketed panels allow waterproof mounting without additional sealant. Bolt holes also feature waterproof O-rings, preventing water from entering the hull.
Single and multifunction panels come standard in black hardcoat-anodized 6061-T6 aluminum. Panels also offered in clear-anodized aluminum, stainless steel, or carbon fiber.
