    Lewmar EVO 55ST ELSASelf-Tailing EVO™ Winch that works at the push of a button!

    That's exactly what you will find with Lewmar's electric winch range.Lewmar ELS electric winches are fitted with a series woundmotor allowing thesheet to be recovered rapidly at low load when sheets are slacker, andslows down as load increases. This provides speed when you need itmost, and control as you tune your sails to perfection removing theneed of a 2 speed winch motor. Manual operation is available as a backup, or to experience traditional sailing.

    Pioneered by Lewmar, ELS(Electric Load Sensing) electric winches are controlled by an OverloadProtection Control Box, which allows the winch to be operated up to thesafe working load of the specific winch. Once this load is exceeded,the winch automatically cuts out. Once the load is reduced to below thesafe working load, the winch can be restarted. The ELS features theadditional safety function of a Motor Thermal Trip, which ensures thatthe motor cuts out in the event of excessive heat build up.
