Above Deck Variable Speed Compact Motor Electric Conversion Kit - 12V for 50ST Winch
The uncompromising ANDERSEN Variable-speed Compact Motor™ is especially developed for use as a winch motor. It is available in two versions; Below Deck, with smaller, built-in dimensions than a standard motor and Above Deck, featuring the winch mounted directly on the motor for deck or mast installation. This motor is highly efficient, with an impressive line speed and first-rate maximum load. The unit is extremely easy to install and demonstrates why ANDERSEN Products are in a class of their own.
The motor is built on an entirely new commutator principle using no carbon brushes, resulting in the virtual elimination of wear and tear. This new approach to motors also provides other advantages; including 30-50% less power consumption compared to a conventional electric motor.
Electric conversion kits are delivered mounted to a stainless steel winch/deck connection plate and have everything you need for do-it-yourself mounting including installation manual, switches and cable terminals.
Mounting of an Above Deck Compact Motor™ winch on a vertical surface is not recommended, as it increases exposure to potential problems of excessive moisture and water ingress which could lead to damage not covered by warranty. The motor/gearbox unit of any Above Deck Compact Motor™ Electric Winch is more exposed to the elements than a below deck installation which keeps the motor unit and gearbox more protected. It is important to take reasonable precautions to protect the unit from unnecessary exposure, and carry out regular seasonal maintenance including the lubrication of the motor shaft seal. This is just good seamanship. On commercial and military vessels, it is common to see exposed equipment with electric motors and gearboxes fitted with covers when not in use or to protect them from heavy spray, etc. Equipment on yachts deserves the same proper care.
