Power connection for Lofrans winches.
To actuate an electric anchor winch you need a corresponding, heavy and blank relay for the up-and-down operation of the winch. The triggering of the relay can be done by an electric foot switch
, a small panel in the cockpit, a handheld remote or a wireless remote control. You only need to install a 3-wire control cable from the control element to the operating element. Especially in narrow bays and when mooring on the rear of your ship, a remote control for your windlass
brings enormous benefits. Then you can drop the anchor and slowly give chain, while you drive backwards. Thus the ship can be easily stabilized and maneuvered to the rear of the jetty.
After spraying the anchor, the anchor chain should be additionally secured by a short slings or chain. Take the load off the windlass and the gypsy. Another good way of hedge is the assembly of a stable chain stopper
, that takes the pulling force of the winch and conducts it into the hull.
When ordering a Lofrans anchor winch in the SVB web shop please recheck if your chain is a DIN or ISO chain in order to delivery you the right winch.
