The MacArtney cable status indicator displays length of cable and line speed. It can be adapted to suit any winch or sheave block installation. 

The LCD display with two lines of 16 digits shows the length of the cable outboard in metres and the line speed in metres per minute or meters per second.

The cable display can be reset to zero or to a custom offset directly from the front panel. It can also be connected to a PC via RS 232 or RS 422 communication ports.

The continuous data string showing cable length and speed can be transmitted to another MK II cable status indicator and/or a MacArtney jumbo display set in slave mode.

The system consists of

  • Sealed splash proof sensor unit

  • Display electronics unit 

The cable status indicator is designed for use in connection with the MacArtney range of cable sheaves.
