(EN)A winch 100 which is provided with means to automatically provide free fall of an anchor, said winch including means to drive the anchor's attached rope/chain out of a storage area until the weight of the anchor and attached rope/chain is sufficient to activate a means to disengage the drive mechanism and the anchor is permitted to free fall; the winch also has means to provide controlled motorised lowering and braking of the falling anchor at any time during its downwards fall but which may be used as a conventional power up power down winch.
(FR)L'invention concerne un treuil pourvu de moyens permettant de laisser automatiquement tomber librement une ancre, ledit treuil comprenant des moyens permettant d'entraîner la corde/chaîne fixée à l'ancre hors d'une zone de stockage, jusqu'à ce que le poids de l'ancre et de la corde/chaîne qui y est fixée soit suffisant pour activer des moyens permettant de débrayer le mécanisme d'entrainement, et pour laisser tomber librement l'ancre. Le treuil comprend également des moyens permettant de commander électriquement le freinage et la descente de l'ancre à tout moment pendant sa chute vers le bas, ceux-ci pouvant être utilisés comme un treuil conventionnel activé/désactivé.
