The four-quadrant motor speed controller enables the winch to sustain a constant bailing speed with varying loads. The winch can be supplied with varying types and gages of wirelines including coax, single and multi-conductor cables. A level wind mechanism automatically wraps the cable onto the drum and also includes a rotary encoder to track the amount of cable released. The MX winch can be fitted with the MATRIX or BBox console to offer a complete logging solution. The MX winch is supplied mounted within a rugged transit case for easy transportation or can be mounted within a vehicle.

As with all Mount Sopris winches the MX winch series can support all Mount Sopris and ALT borehole logging tools and many third party tools.
