The CH60 chain counter and windlass controller displays how much chain you have let out in feet, meters or fathoms. It can automatically slow your windlass when the anchor gets within 5 feet of the bow roller to prevent nasty bumps and scrapes. The slow-down feature is proportional to distance remaining (it slows down more as the anchor gets closer to the bow roller). This makes anchor retrieval at night much safer. The slow-down feature can easily be defeated in if you need to park the anchor quickly in an emergency. Hands-off Auto UP/DOWN: The CH60 can be told to retrieve all the chain automatically, stopping when the anchor gets to 5 feet of the bow roller. You can also program the CH60 to deploy chain automatically, stopping when the programmed amount has been deployed. In Auto UP/DOWN mode, the CH60 constantly monitors the performance of the windlass. If a chain jam occurs or the anchor is stuck fast, the CH60 will stop the windlass faster than any human could respond. The CH60 can be programmed to back-jog the chain a few links when you remove your finger from the UP button. This removes tension off the chain, capstan and windlass gears increasing windlass life and automatically "parks" the chain into a chain stopper. The CH60 can be told to display windlass battery voltage (even under load - when deploying or retrieving the anchor) so you can check the condition of the windlass battery from the helm. The CH60 works over a wide operating voltage range from 6.5 to 33 VDC and can be used to control 12 or 24 VDC winches.
