Maxwell offers a series of AutoAnchor windlass control products which can be used on any windlass.
Designed for mounting at your helm station, the AA570 is a wireless panel mounted up/down windlass controller and anchor rode counter — that eliminates the need for routing wires between the windlass and the helm panel.
The AA570 features easy calibration, as well as configurations for multiple station set-ups using additional AutoAnchor panels or controllers.
Use the AA570 to raise and lower the anchor from the helm, as well as to keep track of how much rode is deployed.
If desired, the AA570 allows you to deploy and retrieve a specific length of anchor rode, which you can set for the depth and weather conditions.
At night, when markers on the anchor rode are difficult to see, the LCD display shows exactly how much rode has been released.
