Electric Winches - Antal
Antal offers a wide range of powered winches, with two or three speeds. Usually sold with chromed drum, powered winches are also available with black aluminum drum or classic natural bronze drum. Have a look into the Winch selection guide to learn what winch size Antal suggest for each maneuver / boat size.
All Antal winch models, from XT40 to XT80.3, maxi W80.3ST and W90.3ST can be fitted with an electric winch. All electric winches are available with a chromed drum, now also black aluminium drums with a reinforced crown gear ( high resistance alloy or A316 Stainless steel) are available.
Horizontal and Vertical motors: All the winches may be equipped with a horizontal motor and gearbox with a worm screw. The largest models may be supplied with a vertical motor which uses a high-efficiency hypocycloid speed reducer. Both solutions have been studied to ensure particularly compact dimensions and maximum silent operation.
Manual use: Simply insert the handle to disconnect the gearbox-motor unit. Greater safety: accidental starting of the motor does not affect the winch, avoiding dangerous turning of the handle. Greater efficiency: the gearbox-motor unit does not turn in manual use, avoiding needless friction.
Speed: Electric winches maintain two speeds both in manual use (inverting the direction of rotation of the handle) and in electric use (pressing one of the two control buttons. It is of fundamental importance to be able to choose the most suitable speed for the maneuver that you want to perform; this allows fast recovery of the first part of the maneuver and more careful regulation in the final stage.
In electric winches the speeds are higher than in manual use. The recovery speed, indicated in the tables, is measured without a load; in the presence of the maximum load, a speed reduction of up to 30% must be considered.
