Electric Anchor Winch

An electric anchor winch is an electrically-powered winch used to raise and lower boat anchors during anchoring operations. According to different electrical systems on ships, there are DC electric winch and AC electric winch. DC winch has good characteristic of regulating the speed, high usage efficiency, but it’s with high cost of first set and the brush should be maintained regularly. Compared with DC winch, AC winch has relative poor performance on speed regulation, it gets several speed grades with pole changing or relying on a set of reduction gear mechanism between the electric motor and the windlass, however, the reduction gear mechanism has complex structure and heavy weight and takes up large area on the deck. Generally speaking, planetary gear reduction transmission mechanism has been widely used at present because of its light weight, small volume, high transmission efficiency and easy maintenance.

Anchor electric winch is powerful and work effectively during the operations, and the electric motor of the winch can be shut off from the outside world, and there will be no exposure to marine environment like excessive moisture. When the electric boat anchor winch is not in use, it can be covered. If you need our electric windlass quotation, you can just tell us and send your inquiry by email.
