The RC12 Series incorporates Maxwell's latest stylish innovation in automatic rope/chain technology. Retaining the classic open design styling more appropriate on larger boats, the RC12 Series represents the next generation of rope/chain windlass evolution in every respect.

Maxwell once again leads the market in innovative thinking with the introduction of their latest Wave Design™ chainwheel. This patented rope/chain wheel incorporates two unique design concepts that greatly improve the handling and control of the rope/chain spliced rode. The outer ribs of the chainwheel are angled slightly forward ensuring that the rope and the chain are smoothly guided in the wheel during anchor retrieval.


Features

  • The RC12-12 fully automatic windlass series is designed to effortlessly retrieve and deploy 12 - 13 mm (1/2") short link chain and 20 mm (5/8") three strand or 8-Plait rope.
  • Stainless steel AISI 316.
  • A sleek, Low Profile version and a fluted stainless steel (AISI 316) capstan drum version, are available.
  • The RC12 is packed with patented innovative features combined with Maxwell's traditionally classic aesthetics, but reflecting the modern "form follows function" of the highly successful RC6, RC8 and RC10 series windlasses.
  • With a maximum pull of 1590 kg (3500 lb), and an anchor retrieval rate of 15 m/min (50ft/min), the RC12-12 is one of the fastest and gruntiest windlasses in its class.
  • The elegantly designed deckplate and chainpipe cover are manufactured in polished marine-grade (AISI 316) stainless steel, as are the heavy duty pressure arm, stripper, chainwheel and fluted capstan drum.
  • The huge, through deck hawse pipe throat ensures easy entry of the rope/chain rode into and out of the anchor locker.
  • Double cone-type brake/clutch mechanism permits 'Free Fall' anchoring. Cone clutches, unlike dog clutches, provide smooth progressive engagement, ensuring safe and precise operator control.
  • The RC12 features Maxwell's revolutionary and patented new Wave DesignT chainwheel.
  • Emergency manual retrieval is made simple and easy with Maxwell's unique "Active Latch Ratchet System" operation that prevents backwind of the windlass during manual hauling of the anchor.
  • Every Maxwell RC12 automatic rope/chain windlass comes with top works, motor/gear box and dual direction solenoid. Switches and circuit breaker are available and need to be ordered separately.
  • Activation of the ratcheted mechanism lever ensures the windlass cannot backwindduring emergency (manual) retrieval of the rode (rope and/or chain) and anchor.
  • Important: Maxwell windlasses must be used in conjunction with a chain stopper and/or alternative snubbing device to take the load off the windlass while laying at anchor. The chain stopper and alternative snubbing system should also be used to secure the anchor in the fully raised position while under way.
  • Every Maxwell automatic rope/chain windlass is available with all the necessary components for fully automatic dual direction control in a competitively priced package.



The Maxwell designed, and innovative black, hard anodized gearbox provides numerous advantages

  • Fast and easy windlass installation.
  • More corrosion resistant.
  • Easy to maintain and service.
  • Takes up less room in the anchor locker.
  • 100:1 ratio, single stage design with less moving parts, for smoother and quieter operation.
  • Allows for multi-positioning of the gearbox/motor.

Colorado River Fish Contain Levels Of Selenium, Mercury

Largely seen as pristine and relatively untouched by human activity thanks to its protected status, the portion of the Colorado River flowing through Grand Canyon National Park is anything but, according to recently published research. This is evidenced by high levels of selenium and mercury found in the fishes there. Scientists from many institutions were involved in the years-long work, full results of which have been published in the journal Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry. It was led by the U.S. Geological Survey, but perhaps the contributors from Idaho State University got the best end of the stick. They were looking into the food webs of the river to evaluate concentrations of selenium and mercury gathering in fish.

Heron dipper-Tough Is Ready For Harsh Deployments

For all the straightforward groundwater monitoring applications that the folks at Heron Instruments help with, there are a few that are far from typical. These include projects that take place near remediation sites or not far from waste disposal operations. Realizing that customers working in those sorts of projects are in need of a more robust option, the company has released the dipper-Tough . The new water level meter takes inspiration from Heron’s popular dipper-T , while throwing in a host of improvements that environmental pros working in groundwater can really appreciate.

Cellular Data Buoy Supports Lake Erie Algae Research, Public Outreach

Scientists at Ohio State University are at the fore of the fight against harmful algal blooms in Lake Erie. In fact, they deployed a new cellular data buoy off the shore of Gibraltar Island in 2014, months before the Toledo Water Crisis spurred a boom in monitoring platforms around the lake. That was in part because researchers at the university’s Stone Laboratory, backed by Ohio Sea Grant and housed on Gibraltar, had been seeing a resurgence of blooms in the lake long before international attention came around following the crisis. There was an opportunity, they saw, to continue advancing the mission of research, education and outreach on Lake Erie. The cellular data buoy complimented that in a great way.
