AUTOMATIC MOORING WINCH WITH STRAIN-GAGE ELECTRONIC REMOTE CONTROL SYSTEM

The arrangement and operation of an automatic mooring winch equipped with a strain-gage electronic remote control system are described. The control system includes a strain-gage force detector built into the mooring winch and an electronic control box built into the electrical equipment cabinet. The mooring is controlled via a controller on the ship bridge. By connecting the control system to a shipboard computer, mooring operations can be automated and considerable savings in labor and materials can be realized.
