Neumann Equipment Oceanographic Winches are designed specifically for hydrographic mapping, research and exploration using side-scan sonar, ROV systems, marine magnetometers, sub-bottom profilers and drop camera systems.

Our Oceanographic Systems are designed to enable scientific research in waters up to a depth of 15,000 metres. These systems can be configured to suit various data transfer cables and associated slip-ring connections.

Our oceanographic winch designs are verified using Finite Element Analysis (FEA), manufactured and tested to meet the relevant standards. They are built tough and designed to last!

- Machine groove drum with suitable D/d ratio to suit coaxial cable.
- Data transfer through slip ring enabling connection to auxiliary monitoring equipment.
- Mechanical or electric automated wire feeder/level wind.
- Continuous tension monitoring independent of deployment angle with overload alarm.
- Bi-directional distance monitoring.
- Electric or hydraulic drive with associated control systems.
- Reduction gearbox.
- Fail-safe spring applied hydraulic/electric release brake.
