AN INGENIOUS ELECTRO-MECHANICAL WINCH
The CEH constant-tension winch, for mooring, cargo-handling, or anchor-windlass duties, has been introduced by the Friedrich Kocks firm, of Bremen. It is intended for the smaller ships, and is available in seven pedestal on which there is a lever for manual control of handling and veering, together with a knob for setting the self-tensioning at one of five steps from 20 to 100% of rated line pull. A feature of the winch is its mechanical load-sensing device, which both controls the self-tensioning and provides overload protection while permitting a standard 3-phase pole-changing electric motor to be used for motive power. The device operates, on the reaction torque principle, through the winch's planetary gearbox. The article gives an illustrated description of the winch and its load-sensing device.
