Take the hard work out of your sailing
time with ANDERSEN's Standard Electric Winches. They allow you to raise
the sails or trim the sheets with the push of a button to expand the
range of weather conditions in which you can safely set sail. If you enjoy
sailing or have a large, hard-to-control mainsail or genoa, electric
winches are a great choice.
Easily user installed and maintained, ANDERSEN Electric Winches are supplied
complete with an easy-to-follow installation manual, electronics box, switches
and cable terminals. They can be installed in the same position as your current
winches by removing the old winches, drilling matching holes for the winch and
motor drive, and making the electrical connections. Safe for extended offshore
use, the motor is protected from overload by an amperage sensor to cut off power
at a pre-set overload. All electric motors are also fitted with thermal cut-outs
in case of overheating.
An ANDERSEN exclusive, the Compact Electric Winch motor uses
non-carbon brush technology to virtually eliminate the wear
and tear of traditional electric motor designs. It uses 30-50%
power, yet can be positioned within the diameter of a standard
winch mounting footprint for tight space applications. Available
in two models for either Above Deck or Below Deck motor placement.
Extremely easy to install and maintain, it integrates the motor,
gears and power control into one compact unit with no extra
control box necessary. Cables can be connected directly to the motor
As with all ANDERSEN Winches™, they feature the exclusive
stainless steel Power Rib™ drum
for maximum power and extended line life. The electric and
self-tailing models also uses an exclusive self-tailing device
that automatically accommodates
a wide range of different line sizes.
