Power connection for LOFRANS winches
To operate an electric anchor winch, you need a corresponding heavy relay
for up and down operation of the winch. The relay can be controlled via 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. You can drop the anchor and slowly slowly lower the chain, while you reverse. Thus, the ship can be easily stabilized and maneuvered to the rear of the jetty.
After bringing the anchor out, the anchor chain
should be additionally secured with a short sling or chain. Take the load off the windlass and the cable lifter. Another good way of securing is the assembly of a stable chainstopper
that absorbs the pulling force of the winch and conducts the load into the hull.
