JonRie Rolls Out New Auto Tow System

Friday, August 02, 2013

JonRie introduces its New ATS (Auto Tow System) for all its Series 500 Towing Winches.

The new ATS (Auto Tow System) offers tug owners a complete solution to modern Open Ocean Towing. The JonRie ATS is an advanced compliment to the existing line of Towing Winch now offering a Constant Scope Tension Limiting device which will relieve tension on the tow line and when the tension is reduced the scope of the line will reclaim back to its original set scope point. As proven over many years of Towing this type of system adds an added safety factor to any tow. The ATS also provides for centenary (line sag) displays, real distance between the tug and tow, alarm points if the tow is to close the tug or if it’s too far away or about to disconnect from the tow with the package providing GPS set on the tug and tow. If the Tow is lost the GPS will give its location to the tug in enough time to reconnect.


This new compliment along with JonRie’s other Towing Winch features which include Line Scope and Line Tension read out using side and back lite readout meters with dimming for night work, Independent Drive Level Wind pilot hose controls and Controlled Freewheel Function. All JonRie Series 500 Towing Winches are Direct Drive and are the most Quiet Winches on the market today to help add to crew comfort. JonRie uses no open gearing and no clutches as all operations are independently driven. This reduces maintenance and increases the life of the equipment in seas and weather. Also included on every JonRie Towing Winch is an H-Bitt with cross bar to lower the tripping moment of the tug. The series 500 Towing Winches systems are the most advanced on the market today.
