Single Direction Solenoids are typically used where only single direction motor rotation is required - typically with rope capstans such as the Maxwell AnchorMax and VC vertical capstans.
However, they can also be used with VW windlasses where deploying the anchor by free fall is an option, and the windlass motor is only used to retrieve the anchor - if desired.
Solenoids are special high amperage on/off switches used in conjunction with Maxwell's remote up/down panel, AutoAnchor™ rode counters, roving hand held remote controls, and/or footswitches, to control the direction of your windlass motor.
Single direction solenoid kits contain one solenoid, while dual direction solenoid kits contain two solenoids - one for each direction.
• Heavy duty solenoids, suitably rated for Maxwell windlass motors (rated at over 200A continuous at 12 volts)
• Installation in a dry area is always recommended
• Available for 24 volt systems (part #SP1394) by special order; please inquire at 800-426-6930
