WINCHES

Thanks to our in-depth combined knowledge of aero-hydraulic systems and to a partnership with another European company, in 1995 EA added personnel rescue (SAR) and cargo winches to its product line.  The newest type of floor winch system is hydraulically driven and is currently installed on the NATO NH90 helicopter. The winch is electrically controlled by an operator using a pendant grip. All working parameters are monitored by an electronic control box that allows the operator to monitor operating conditions and failures.  All the valves, such as the hydraulic motor, are cartridge type.
