Abstract

The disclosure is related to redundant master/follower control logic for a winch system such as a marine offshore winch. A solution is suggested which may include integrated redundant master/follower control logic inside and between winch motor drives and/or integrated redundant mechanical brake control logic for the winch motors. An inbuilt control logic may be used to prevent a multi-motor winch application from stopping even if one of the several motors is stopped because of e.g. a fault or disabled.
