CT-6HS 230V Unit with Soft Start

CTM has taken nearly a decade of experience as a top-selling marine A/C retailer in the US and combining this with an understanding of the wants and needs of marine A/C customers — as well as where other major brands could be improved — CTM has created a self-contained marine air conditioner that raises the bar on quality and performance.

And while lightweight and with a small footprint, the CTM CT includes titanium circulating coils, a high-velocity turbo blower, stainless steel bolts, and a stainless steel structural pan with Plastic ABS tray in order to ensure long-lasting, corrosion-proof performance in even the toughest of marine environments.

All CTM Control Boards, Temperature Sensors, and cables are made in the United States under strict quality standards. Every CTM Unit comes with an industry-standard 2-year warranty*, knowledgeable and attentive customer service, and ships ground to you free of charge within the US.

As marine A/C retailers, as well as boaters ourselves, we know what boaters are looking for in a marine A/C system — and this is exactly what the CTM line delivers

Soft Start Benefits

The Soft Start board employs a 4-part start ramp sequence that is self-optimizing, resulting in the lowest possible start-up current. It can deliver 65-75% start current reduction as compared to a compressor's LRA (locked-rotor amperage). It is the perfect solution that allows an air conditioner or refrigeration compressor to operate on a generator, inverter, or limited utility power when it would otherwise not have functioned.

- Start your air conditioner without buying a second or bigger generator or inverter. 
- Run 2 air conditioners on a 30-amp cord.
- Sleep with less noise and cool all through the night.
- Run your air conditioner with more appliances at the same time.

Notes if replacing a Dometic DTU6, DTG6 or ECD6 - 230V

The CTM CT-6H 230V marine air conditioning unit works as a good replacement for the Dometic DTG6 - 230V (205162069), DTU6 - 230V (205162060), or ECD6 - 230V (207500307). There are some specs that should be taken into consideration when replacing one of the units previously mentioned. 

- Because the CT-6H unit comes with the Universal Control board, it will work with the controller you currently have. Supported controllers included: SMXir, Passport I/O, Smart Touch, Elite II. 

- Waterline connections should be the same as the unit you are replacing, the CT-unit has a standard 5/8" water connection.

- The CT-6H Unit has a 4-inch ducting ring whereas the Dometic comes with a 5 inch. It is a quick replacement as the ducting can be easily cinched down with a clamp.

- Dimensions wise this unit is very similar to the one you are replacing, so It shouldn't be a major issue. However, it is suggested you double-check in order to avoid any issues when installing.
