E40i - THE EASILY PLACED ELECTRIC WINCH

E40i – THE EASILY PLACED ELECTRIC WINCH

The coach roof is the normal place for a winch that operates halyards, reef lines, outhaul and control lines.

The E40i winch is built up around an electric motor which is totally integrated in the drum. Only three thin cables are protruding to lead through the coach roof or the deck, no large cutouts and no external motor or gearbox.

This makes for uncompromised headroom down below.

NO SWEAT

Hoisting your main will no longer be a struggle. Self-tailing function and 3-speed operation makes E40i ideal for any line where you need the combination of speed and fine-tuning.

A PERFECT MATCH FOR YOUR FURLING MAST

An interplay between E40i and Seldén’s electric furling mast forms the ingenious Synchronized Main Furling system (SMF) developed by Seldén. Press one button and E40i will tension the outhaul simultaneously as the mast motor unfurls the sail from the mast.


ALUMINIUM OR STAINLESS STEEL?

Choose between the shiny stainless version of E40i or go for the black in hard anodized machined aluminium. The looks may differ but the function is the same.

ANOTHER LEAP AHEAD

The Seldén winches are manually operated and of self-tailing type with two gears forward. So far, exactly as we are all used to and that’s where the similarity to other winches ends. We have developed a unique design of the drum which consists of concave surfaces that provide an extraordinary grip. You can have fewer turns on the drum thus reducing the risk of an override, which in turn allows the line to be released quickly in light or heavy air. A large step towards more efficient and safer sailing.

Several safety aspects have been implemented into the functions of our winches and more than that, by modern manufacturing technology and by optimizing the choice of materials of our winches, we reduce the weight and the need of maintenance to a minimum.

To complement our award winning reversible winches we are now expanding our range to include a series of refined 2-speed self-tailing winches.

The S-series simplifies the maneuver of tacking and makes the handling of a highly loaded sheet much safer and quicker.
Nothing less than great grip and reliability in a light weight package.

The grip on the winch drum is exceptionally efficient and combined with a unique self-tailer it enables the trimmer to pull the slack out of the sheet with the line sitting in the self-tailer and with the winch handle mounted. A great advantage for the racing sailor who can pre-load the sheet into the self-tailer of the windward winch prior to tacking and then sheet home and set the trim of the jib instantly on the new tack. Simply pull in the slack and turn the handle a turn or two to get full tension.

The cruising sailor will appreciate simpler and safer maneuvers by not having to hold a tensioned sheet in the hand whilst trying to load it into the self-tailer and searching around for the winch handle.
