  • Manufactured from marine-grade materials
  • Splashproof
  • Suitable for 12 and 24 Volt DC use

 

UP/DOWN CONTROL

 

CIRCUIT BREAKER/ISOLATOR PANELS
Maxwell circuit breaker/isolator panels are available to suit a wide range of windlasses and capstans.

  • For protection of the main conductor circuit for DC winches
  • Mount as close as possible to the battery power source to ensure protection against short circuit and to reduce the risk of DC motor burn-out in the event of winch overloading
  • Enables the battery, or electrical supply, to be isolated when winch is not in use
  • Suitable for 12V or 24V DC systems

FOOT SWITCHES
Maxwell heavy-duty, weather resistant units have a UV stabilised waterproof diaphragm and are supplied complete with mounting instructions and screws.

  • Rated at 150 amps maximum current and suitable for 12V or 24V applications
  • Nickel-plated copper contacts ensure corrosion-free, reliable operation
  • Available in UV stabilised plastic or polished stainless steel covered versions
  • Uncovered versions are also available.

NEW PRODUCT

New Maxwell compact up and down foot switches now available in black and white cover versions. Operate via solenoids thus allowing smaller diameter wiring.

DUAL and SINGLE DIRECTION SOLENOIDS

Dual Direction Solenoids are used in conjunction with remote Up/Down panel, Auto Anchor™ Rode Counters, roving hand held remote controls and/or footswitches to switch the motor in the required direction.

  • Heavy-duty solenoids, suitably rated for our winch motors
  • Optional, ignition protected solenoids available
  • Available in 12V or 24V DC for permanent magnet and series wound motors
  • Installation in a dry area is always recommended

Single Direction Solenoids should be used where only single direction motor rotation is necessary. e.g. capstan winches. The advantages of using a single direction solenoid, instead of a heavy duty switch are:

  • Shorter runs of heavy duty wiring, thus saving cost
  • Multiple input sources possible E.g. foot switch, remote control, etc.
  • Less chance of arcing. Arcing reduces the life of electrical contacts.

 

DUAL DIRECTION SOLENOIDS

ROVING HAND HELD REMOTE CONTROL
Two button single speed units enable the operator to visually check anchor retrieval or lowering from the bow if vision is obstructed.
