Electrical Spooling Gear
Naust Marine launched the equipment „Electrical Spooling Gear“ for trawl winches in 2008. The company is now launching the first major update to the system with new operations meant to ensure the operator more and better control of the gear.
Naust Marine´s Electrical Spooling Gear is designed for all kinds of trawl winches, electrical and hydraulic and can, with minimum modification, fit most winch types.
The main purpose of this product is to ensure good reeling at all times whether wire or Dynema is in use.
Bad reeling on trawl winches is a problem every skipper knows. This can be caused by old wire or Dynex or spliced connections in wire or rope. Dynex ropes can also differ in diameter from one end to the other and in some ships rope and wire is mixed together. It may also be necessary to connect or splice together wire which can cause bad reeling.
All of this can cause difficulties in choosing the right settings for the crown-wheels used with most winches today. With Naust Marine´s ESG system the skipper can adjust the speed of the wheel in accordance with different diameter in rope and wire and thus ensure good reeling.
How does the ESG work?
Electrical motor with controlling gear and encoder is mounted on to the winch and connected to the spooling device with a chain. A configurative speed drive is used to control the speed. The ESG is set via touch screen during shooting and hauling. This is done in learning mode and the settings automatically saved. The settings can be manually changed at any time when wire or rope diameter changes.
