The Lewmar Contactors are equipped with a thermal trip to monitor the motor temperature, which ensures a cut out if the heat builds up to an unacceptable level.
Lewmar Control Boxes allow the winch to be operated up to a set current relative to the working load limit of the specific winch. Once this current is exceeded, the winch automatically cuts out. Once the current drops to below the working load limit, the winch can be restarted. The ELS features the additional safety function of a Motor Thermal Trip, which ensures that the motor cuts out in the event of excessive heat build up.
