Atlas Launch New A10 Data-Logging Device!

Many Grundowinches are fitted with data-logging devices that are now obsolete and unsupported by the manufacturer meaning that spare parts and repairs are no longer possible.  Existing PC110 or PC210 units can be upgraded to the latest PC310 version but this is a very expensive process that many find difficult to justify.

Frustrated with this situation Atlas have developed their own data-logger device that can be used as a replacement for the PC110, PC210 or even the current PC310 units.

The Atlas A10 data-logger is a high quality, full colour HMI unit.  It features robust push buttons rather than the less reliable touch screen design and provides full data-logging of load, speed, distance and maximum load settings.  Installation also includes fitting a USB port for data download and there are also options to have a new printer fitted or utilise an existing one if preferred.

Suitable for use with all Grundowinches from 3tonnes up to 20tonnes, installation will also include testing, calibration and certification.  The A10 data-logger is available at a significant saving compared to the PC310 upgrade making it a highly attractive and cost effective solution.

Get in touch now for more information or to arrange an installation.

A huge thank you to all who visited us at Liftex 2016 in late November.
The exhibition was a great success and the move to Aberdeen seemed to work for many of us. It was good to meet up with friends and colleagues, old and new and both rekindle and establish business relationships and opportunities. The exhibition gave us the opportunity to showcase the wide range of both Huchez and Marotechniek winches we have on offer. We were delighted to have Sandrine Teggin of Huchez join us on the stand for most of the show. Sandrine’s product knowledge and understanding is excellent and it was good to have that available to us. Thanks again to our many customers and suppliers.


After being a development member of LEEA for a number of years, Atlas Winch & Hoist Services were delighted to have their membership status upgraded to Full LEEA members in November. This was due in no small part due to the investment made by both branches to increase the number of LEEA qualified engineers and technicians and also to give those engineers and technicians a wider range of qualifications. Huge congratulations to all staff that achieved new qualifications this year. We are very proud of our team. This latest achievement following on from attaining ISO9001:2015 accreditation in June of this year means that Atlas should be your number one choice for the installation, service, test and repair of all your lifting and rigging equipment. Call us to discuss your specific requirements, we are here to help.
