The winch is designed to support fast autonomous
underwater profiling and logging systems like free fall
penetrometers and CTD's.
The system has two drums: a big drum to spool very fast
and a small drum that delivers more pulling force (150 kg) for
retrieving instruments that entered deeper in soft sediments.
The winch can be easily operated, directly via the cabinet or
via a remote control unit.
The complete setup weighs 41 kg and can be flexible
installed on deck by eight magnets (included).
The system is made from Stainless Steel (type 316) and is
supplied with a rope of 50 meter. The rope type is Dyneema
SK75 with a breaking strength of 1400 kg and Ø 4 mm.
More types and lengths are available on request.
