    Constantly controlling
    the rotation speed

    Remember, most winches have two speeds:

    A low one when you winch one way
    A high one when you winch the other way.

    Ewincher is perfectly adapted to this particularity of winches. It allows you to choose between two speeds, low and high, independently of the trimming speed which you can always control.

    With Ewincher you can always control the speed and choose to use the high or low speed of the winch at any time.

    Don't loose the pleasure of trimming and the joys of sailing: to use Ewincher in manual mode, hold down the second button, located under the knob of the grip, and winch as usual.

    How to use
    the electric winch handle in manual mode ?

    The shape and size of the Ewincher could be mistaken for a standard handle, but that's precisely because it can be used as such.

    This feature is particularly useful when you want to fine-tune a setting by hand, or simply feel and control the tension in the ropes. No need to change the handle, you already have a standard handle in your hands!

    Trim
    at an exceptional speed!

    This mode is most useful at the start of a manoeuvre, when there is little tension in your ropes and you need to trim in very quickly.

    How to use
    the combined mode ?

    The combined mode consists in using the electric mode, so instead of maintaining the handle still, you winch at the same time.

    You then add the two rotation speeds to reach unparalleled trimming speed.

  • Powerful and Fast

    Overview of the performances
    of the electric winch handle

    More powerful, faster and enduring than the best crew member, Ewincher is an indispensable tool for a navigator who wants to be assisted by the best crew.

    POWERFUL, IT PRODUCE 480W OF ELECTRIC POWER COMBINED WITH A 90 NM TORQUE:

    Ewincher can easily hoist a 110 kg crew member up the mast on a 55-footer.

    Ewincher can easily trim a 160m² spinnaker in 15 knots of wind.

    FAST, IT PROVIDES UP TO 110 ROTATIONS PER MINUTE IN ELECTRIC MODE:

    Ewincher hoists the mainsail in 65 seconds on a 45-footer (Oceanis 45).

    https://youtu.be/slZ8Qm4Z_co?si=ETYUm4U0_uTLyk3k

    Some elements of comparison
    in relation to a crew member:

    Let's compare, referring to some data, Ewincher's performance with an athletic and robust crew member in top shape.

    Ewincher-puissance-.png Ewincher-puissance-.png

    Some power data

    Physically, winching means exerting rotational force on the handle.

    This complex movement requires a particularly intense and concentrated effort from the crew member: in effect, it is much easier for the crew member to resist a force by remaining motionless than to exert the same force with a rotating motion.

    No matter how strong a crew member is, it is difficult to winch and exert a full rotation when the required effort on the handle exceeds 25kg.

    On the other hand, Ewincher's maximal torque is over 90 Nm, which is equivalent to a force of more than 36 kg on the handle !


    Ewincher-3-vitesse-.png Ewincher-3-vitesse-.png

    Some speed data

    It is difficult for a crew member to winch consistently at more than 60 rotations per minute, even when the tension in the ropes is moderate. As soon as the tension increases, it becomes very difficult to maintain the same pace. rotations per minute! In contrast, Ewincher's electric mode has a speed range of 0 to 110 rpm. Not only is Ewincher faster than a crew member, but it also provides the same amount of power at all times and does not weaken when the rope increases.
    And that is without mentioning the combined mode, which enables Ewincher to reach an unbeatable trimming speed of up to 160 !

    EWINCHER

    EWINCHER

    Some endurance data

    A crew member in (very) good physical condition will be able to provide a maximum of 200 W for 30 seconds while winching constantly: beyond that, they will not be able to provide as much energy.

    They will gradually slow down and lose energy. On the other hand, Ewincher provides 250W of useful energy*, which can be used at full speed until the battery is flat: Ewincher is much more enduring.

    *Ewincher dispose de 480W d’énergie électrique fournies par la batterie. Le moteur et un système d’engrenages transforment cette énergie électrique en énergie utile délivrée par l’embout de sortie : c’est elle qui fait tourner le winch. L’énergie utile délivrée par EWINCHER sur l’embout de sortie est ainsi de 250W.

    lithium-Ion battery

    EWINCHER IS EQUIPPED WITH A REMOVABLE 28,8V LITHIUM-ION BATTERY:

    Its capacity is 2 500 mAh and 72 Wh, producing 480W of electric power.

    RUNNING TIME: AT LEAST 1 DAY OF NAVIGATION FOR BOATS UP TO 45 FEET

    Charging time: 1h30 with 12V or 220V.

    What is the running time
    of the battery ?

    batterie ewincher

    batterie ewincher

    RUNNING TIME of the batttery

    Ewincher's run time varies mainly according to the use you make of it and the size of your boat. Here are some examples of use with 1 charged battery on a Dufour 405:

    With 10 to 15 knots of wind you can hoist the main sail 3 times, then tack 40 times while manoeuvring the genoa.

    In the same way, it can allow you to hoist an 85kg crew member to the top of the mast 3 times (height of climb 14.50 m).



    Do you need
    one or two batteries?

    The decision to opt for a second battery depends mainly on the size of your boat and your sailing habits. Generally, one battery is sufficient for more than one day's navigation on boats under 45 feet : so, a second battery is not necessary in this case. In the case of larger boats, a second battery may be useful, depending on your use. In case of doubt, do not hesitate to contact us.

    Recharging the
    battery

    Charging time: 1h30

    Recharging can be done both on board (12 V DC cigarette lighter socket) from the service batteries or from the shore power supply (110-220VAC).

    Consumption on the 12VDC service batteries for full recharging (6 Ah), which is 1.5 to 2% of the capacity of a medium battery pack (370 Ah).

    Technologies
    that we used

    The battery is made of high quality lithium-ion cells. These are the same cells found on cars currently on the market. Its nominal voltage is 28,8 V (and functions beween 33,6V and 25,7 V).

    For example, the batteries of traditional portable power tools have a nominal voltage of 18 V DC, which remains particularly insufficient for the most demanding maneuvers.

    What is the battery
    lifespan ?

    batterie ewincher

    batterie ewincher

    1st factor:

    Your Li-Ion is composed of cells that will deteriorate over time, regardless of their use. This "natural" deterioration process reduces the battery's capacity after 3 years, as a general rule. In most cases, battery replacement is not considered until the fourth year.

    2nd factor:

    The lifespan test that we have conducted on Ewincher batteries show that a loss of capacity only appears after 300 full charge and discharge cycles. If the battery is used on a 40 footer, and only ½ of the maximum battery charge is used in a day of sailing, this means that the battery will provide at least 600 days of sailing before it starts to lose capacity!

    Battery maintenance
    advices

    After a day's sailing, even if your battery is not empty, it is advisable to fully recharge it.

    Ewincher will then be fully operational for its next use. And most importantly, this is the best way to preserve the battery. During the wintering period, recharge your battery fully and stow it in a dry place.

    an ergonomic that make everything easier

    Ewincher was designed on the model of the standard handle and has all its advantages, so you can keep all your user reflexes!

    Ewincher weighs only 2.2 kg. Resulting from extensive research on ergonomics, the EWINCHER shape is similar to that of a standard handle. Everything has been designed to make it easy to hold and use on board, including its Palm grip.

    Ewincher is 10 inches long (250 mm), the same length as a conventional handle.Thus, Ewincher adapts perfectly to your deck layout.As for storage, Ewincher comes with its own ergonomic holder, at hand in the cockpit.

    To use Ewincher in electric mode

    You engage and lock the handle on the winch.
    You position Ewincher in the green sector. It's very easy because Ewincher is disengaged at rest.
    You press the speed control button while holding the crank to compensate for the torque exerted by the motor.
    You are then perfectly positioned, and Ewincher does all the work for you. You carry out your maneuver effortlessly while remaining in control.

    Why is it so easy with Ewincher?

    You know from experience, with a classic crank, it is easy to winch in the green sector of the image above.

    On the other hand, when the efforts become significant, it quickly becomes difficult or even impossible (red sector of the photo above).

    Classic winch handle

    With Ewincher it’s VERY EASY. You position Ewincher in the green sector. All you have to do is hold the crank by putting your shoulders back (as in the photo above).

    Your body is perfectly positioned and it is Ewincher who does the work.

    Design and manufacturing quality:
    not just an obsession

    At EWINCHER, it is the basis of our identity.

    With almost thirty years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry, EWINCHER's designer and CEO, Bruno Rabu has made quality his major concern. The entire team, from design to manufacturing, shares this concern for quality: Marine products require the highest quality, due to the extreme conditions they are subjected to.

    Materials and technical solutions
    adapted to the marine environment:

    Given the demanding environment that EWINCHER was designed for, we paid particular attention to the choice of materials, conceiving and engineering EWINCHER accordingly.

    Manivelle Winch Ewincher 2

    Manivelle Winch Ewincher 2

    Speed : 110 rpm without load

    The plastic components are made of fibreglass reinforced Polyamide 12: It is a highly technical plastic, both very lightweight and resistant (90MPa resistance). It is more robust than aluminium (70MPa). These parts are the casings (shells) of the handle, the battery and the Palm Grip.

    The gears are made of alloy steel, heat treated and cemented:The resistance obtained is over 1500MPa. These gears enable an extremely high torque transmission while remaining well below their working potential.

    Wear-free motor: It is a brushless motor.

    The end tip is made of stainless steel 316LL: The choice of high quality stainless steel guarantees its corrosion resistance. Effectively, it is practically wear-free, contrary to most standard handle end tips which are made of aluminium (4 times less resistant).

    Highly protected electronics: The handle is fully watertight (protection rate: IPX6). We took care in tropicalising the electronic card; in other words, making it insensitive to warm and humid climates (climate conditions which are harmful for electronics). Data transmission between the Palm Grip and the arm of the handle is realised via patented contactless technology, which avoids wear or corrosion on contacts.

    High quality requirements
    right from production stage

    Impeccable
    quality

    A marine product, as stipulated, requires unimpaired quality. That is why we chose to assemble the EWINCHER handless ourselves, implementing a quality control policy throughout the production process in our workshop in France.

    Prior to the delivery, the EWINCHER systematically undergoes a long testing process: each component is individually tested before, during and after assembly; and once assembled, each handle is also submitted to advanced testing.

    Made in
    France

    Moreover, this requirement for unimpaired product quality has led us to choose French suppliers for most EWINCHER components.

    The most technical parts of the wireless electric winch handle, such as the electronic board, the casings ("shells") or the gearing system are, therefore, manufactured locally in France by our suppliers, who meet our high standard quality requirements.
