[Electric above-deck furling system: EF90]

With the electric EF 90 reefing systems, trend-setting design and peak efficiency are combined in an overall high-capacity system. They are designed for yachts of approx. 36-70 foot in length and for wire forestays from 8 to 16 mm in diameter (alternatively rods -12 to -76). A newly developed gear technology and sophisticated bearing technology lend the smooth running EF 90 an unprecedented functionality. With respect to construction, the self-braking worm gear is nearly maintenance free.

Comforting to know that in emergency situations it is easy to switch over to manual operation. In order to guarantee secure and simple operation, loads from the sail are completely absorbed and hence cannot affect the winch handle. The integrated length adjustment is likewise easy to operate and works even with tacked sail.

The technical equipment and the exclusive use of top value materials make this an overall valuable and durable system, tailored to the requirements of ambitious yachtsmen.

The system sizes EF90-2 and EF90-3 guarantee high performance and top efficiency in simple and comfortable operation on 36-foot boats as well as larger yachts.

[Features]

Emergency Manual Backup

Emergency Manual Backup

The unique manual drive ensures the greatest possible level of security. By simply inserting a standard winch handle, the electric drive will disconnect and switch to manual operation. Due to this special gear mechanism that prevents sail forces from transferring to the winch handle, the reefing system can be safely and easily operated, even when in manual mode.

Integrated Length Adjustment

Integrated Length Adjustment

The integrated length adjustment is easy to use and works even when the sail is bent. This means that rigs and sails can be trimmed exactly.

Tack Swivel Ring Bearings

Tack Swivel Ring Bearings

The furler tack swivel rings have a double axial bearing. This means that even heavy loads can be carried reliably. In order to avoid point loading on the bearings, loads are distributed using distribution plates over the whole bearing.

Halyard Swivel FS

Halyard Swivel FS

The Reckmann high-performance halyard swivels turn with extremely low amounts of friction, thereby guaranteeing a secure operation without twisting the halyard. The compact design and size graduation ensure a low weight aloft.

Chainplate Pin

Chainplate Pin

This new development from Reckmann means there is no need for a toggle. The compact design makes it possible to save on toggle length. The design can be integrated, load-optimised, into carbon fibre structures.

Tack Slider

Tack Slider

The tack slider or floating tack swivel allows the sail luff to be tensioned independently of the stay. This is a necessary addition, specifically with sails that have a halyard lock.

Carbon Foils

Carbon Foils

Our carbon profiles offer high resistance and low weight at the same time. A weight reduction of 50-60 % in comparison with conventional aluminium profiles means that there is a significant improvement in performance.
