MSD Design – Project 2


Design/Supply – Winch/PLC power unit

Application Details

Deployment by wire. davit of a clump weight to the sea bed in up to 500 metres of water using hydraulic power and subsequently maintaining a 600kgs tight line in sea states of up to 2.0 metres/sec movemen. PLC controls were introduced to provide accurate data feedback of dpeth and line tension as a development from the original non-PLC systme

Antech Activity

Antech Hydraulics designed and built the electrical and hydraulic units. The power pack provides oil to a combined winch & davit assembly. Constant tension is measured from a load cell in the Davit arm and the feedback loop of the PLC/ pump output regulates pressure/ flow according to sea state and boat movement. The hih speed of the winch means the system is extremely responsive
