Anchor Winch Controls

Anchor Winch Controls

A winch which is controlled using a windlass (for horizontal movement) and capstan (for vertical movement) are key parts of an Anchor Winch System. Accompanied by the windlass and the capstan several other components such as dog clutch, hawsepipe chain wheel drum and pawl bar are used which are used to the maneuvering of the anchor. The components were conventionally powered by a steam motor or a diesel motor but later developments have led to the adoption of electric motors which are controlled using PLC/DCS systems and given power from the PMS (Power management systems) which are robust.
