Each electric or hydraulic winch requires two analog switches or one Digital System Switch. Harken Digital System Switches in dual and single-function models set the standard for the reliable operation of electrically-powered yacht systems.
To accomplish this, safeguards have been built into the systems.
• The waterproof control button translates electrical information into a binary code that won’t allow the system to start without the signals being verified by the decoder. An analog system sends continuous electrical information directly to the powered device which means damage to the wiring or water ingress could result in unsafe activation.
• Watertight seals are never exposed, even in the on position, eliminating potential damage from sun and prolonged use.
• Underneath each control button, two command switches must work in unison before a signal is sent.
Integrated lighting provides low-light visibility.
