Two Speed & Three Speed Electric
TWO & THREE SPEED
Andersen Two Speed and Three Speed electric winches are the perfect solution
for larger boats, of 16m (60ft) or more, providing the power and control to safely
hoist and trim sails of any size at the push of a button.
In addition to the host of standard features that make Andersen self-tailing
winches the benchmark for quality and performance, Andersen Two Speed
and Three Speed electric winches are engineered with unsurpassed levels of
performance, monitoring and protection.
Powerful and efficient, high quality motor
At the heart of each Andersen Two Speed and Three Speed electric winch is a powerful 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. For maximum performance and efficiency they are supplied in a
24 volt version, providing smooth operation across a wide working load range.
Illuminated “intelligent” push buttons
Two Speed and Three Speed electric winches are supplied with push buttons with integrated
LED which illuminates when power to the winch system is on. The push buttons incorporate
a hinged safety cover to prevent inadvertent winch operation and are water resistant rated
to IP67. The push buttons also act with the controller to flash status codes that assist with
trouble shooting in the event of overload or where other system protection intervention occurs.
Manual operation is always available as a backup.
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 controller against
incorrect cable connection.
Accidental start protection – Winch operation is disabled if a 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
