RCM2 AND RCM4 - RADIO REMOTE CONTROLS

These new, hand held wireless control units are ideal for remotely operating the up/down function of a single windlass (RCM2) or a dual windlass installation (RCM4). The RCM2 can also be used for control of a bow thruster, whereas the RCM4 can be used for controlling a windlass and a bow thruster or a bow and stern thruster simultaneously. These units are also suitable for the operation of other on board, electrically driven equipment.

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.
