RC12/10 Capstan WIndlass - 24V - 3/8" Chain & 3/4" Rope

The RC12 fully automatic windlass series is designed to effortlessly retrieve and deploy 10mm (3/8") short link chain and 16mm (5/8") to 20mm (3/4") three strand or 8-Plait rope (RC12-10) and 12mm/13mm (1/2") short link chain and 20mm (3/4") three strand or 8-Plait rope (RC12-12).

With a maximum pull of 1590 kg (3500 lb), and an anchor retrieval rate of 15m/min (50ft/min), the RC12-12 is one of the fastest and gruntiest windlasses in its class.

A sleek, Low Profile version and a fluted stainless steel capstan drum version, are available.

The RC12 is packed with 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.

The elegantly designed deckplate and chainpipe cover are manufactured in polished marine-grade 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 Wave Design™ 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.

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 - 75:1 Ratio (RC12-10) or 100:1 Ratio (RC12-12), single stage design with less moving parts, for smoother and quieter operation - Allows for multi-positioning of the gearbox/motor.

Every Maxwell automatic rope/chain windlass comes complete with all the necessary components for fully automatic dual direction control in a competitively priced package.

Imperial County Residents Help Tackle Air Monitoring

Residents from Imperial County, California are benefitting from a new air quality monitoring network of low-cost environmental sensors that provide real-time pollution data. The county is subject to many air pollution sources such as field burning, unpaved roads, several industrial facilities and its close proximity to the Salton Sea. The City of El Centro, California, which is located in the county, has the fifth-worst air quality in the United States, according to a study by the American Lung Association. While there are several different types of air pollution, particulate matter (PM) is a main concern in Imperial County. PM is a mixture of extremely small particles and liquid droplets that get into the air.

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality's Water Quality Division

With an average rainfall of only 12.5 inches per year and a population that's growing faster than the country's , Arizona is a state that faces unique challenges, especially when it comes to clean, safe water. The Water Quality Division of the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) protects and enhances public health and the environment by monitoring and regulating drinking water. And although they make use of the latest scientific methods and new technology, given the current state of Arizona's water system, they also rely upon low-tech equipment and cooperation from members of the community to monitor water quality in the state. Team members in the Groundwater Protection Program work to sample, test and characterize groundwater quality in all 51 of Arizona’s basins.

Latest Satellite and Eddy Covariance Data Shows Vulnerability of Trees to Drought

William Anderegg, assistant professor of biology at the University of Utah, has spent years studying drought-stricken trees all over the world. As climate change is expected to cause increased drought severity in the future, the work of Anderegg and his colleagues becomes increasingly important. In a previous interview for the Environmental Monitor , Anderegg found that a tree’s hydraulic safety margin was the best indicator of whether a tree would survive drought. The hydraulic safety margin is an expression of how the tree reacts under drought conditions, where there is very little water being pulled up the tree’s transport system and air is being pulled up instead. “It’s like a heart attack for the tree,” he noted.
