E1 ELECTRIC WINCHES
Andersen E1 electric winches allow you to hoist and trim sails at the push of
a button regardless of physical strength, so any crew member can easily and
safely trim sails and control lines. Perfect for enjoying sailing short-handed or
with friends and family. In addition to the host of standard features that make
Andersen self-tailing winches the benchmark for quality and performance,
Andersen E1 electric winches are engineered with unsurpassed levels of
functionality, monitoring and protection.
Ease of installation
Contactors and controller are contained within the motor unit, so no separate control box is
necessary. Simplified electrical installation requires just the connection of positive and negative
power cables to the motor terminals and the connection of the push button using the included
output cable. Marine grade circuit breakers are also available for protection and isolation.
Efficient, high quality motor
At the heart of the E1 electric winch is a high quality European engineered and manufactured
series wound motor. Carefully matched with the optimum gearbox these winches deliver
high speed at low load for fast sheeting in, and low speed at high load for safe, fine tuning
when trimming. They are available in 12 volt and 24 volt models providing smooth and quiet
operation across a wide working load range.
Illuminated “intelligent” push button
E1 winches are supplied with a push button with an integrated LED which illuminates when
power to the winch system is on. The push button incorporates a hinged safety cover to
prevent inadvertent winch operation and is water resistant rated to IP67. The push button
also acts with the controller to flash status codes that assist with troubleshooting in
the event of overload or where other system protection intervention occurs. A cable for
connection of the push button is included for convenient installation.
Unrivalled monitoring and protection
Integrated overload protection – The controller is pre-set to stop the winch if the maximum pull
load is exceeded. Operation can resume within a few seconds when the load returns below the limit.
Thermal overload protection – The motor is fitted with a thermal cutout that disables the
motor in case of overheating; it automatically resets after the temperature returns to normal.
Reverse polarity protection – An integrated 5 amp fuse protects the motor against incorrect
Accidental start protection – Winch operation is disabled if the push button is already
inadvertently pressed when the power supply is turned on at the circuit breaker or battery.
Low voltage detection – Operation is disabled if the battery charge level is low, which
prevents further drain on batteries and avoids triggering low voltage reset of navigation
instruments and other electronic devices.
Continuous run time limit – Operation is disabled if continuous run time exceeds 10 minutes.
Two speed manual operation is always available as a backup.
