Electric Capstan Part Numbers and Drawings
A direct-drive design increases the efficiency of the capstan winch and eliminates drive chains or bull gears to maximize power output.
The rope can leave the drum at any angle, enabling the operator to stand in the most appropriate, out of line of sight location. For safety the load line shall be the bottom wrap on the drum, and the lead line going to the operator will be the top wrap on the drum
All capstan winches utilize high-efficiency worm, helical, helical-worm or helical-bevel reducers plus high-capacity, anti-friction bearings designed for long life, low noise and higher output torque.
High-starting-torque, 3-phase motors are available in all standard voltages at 50 and 60 Hz. These motors are suited to railcar pulling where momentary overloads occur when a railcar is started in motion. Single phase motors at 115/230 volts at 50 or 60 Hz are available as an option on some models.
Through deck configuration with capstan motor or motor and gear below deck
Capstans can be supplied with start/stop, foot-operated controls of the “deadman” variety. If the operator’s foot moves off the switch, the capstan will stop. This type of control allows the operator to use two hands on the rope, for optimum control.
Fully explosion-proof motors and controls are available for applications in hostile or volatile environments.
Capstans can be supplied with a variable frequency drive (VFD) package. The VFD controls the amount of current that the motor can draw, limiting the amount of torque that the electric motor can produce.
