PRODUCT TECHNOLOGY SPOTLIGHT

Reactive Overload Clutch (ROC)

The ROC is a next-generation improvement over other slip clutch technologies. While these standard technologies prevent hoist cables from snapping under gradual pressure when they exceed load limits, the ROC offers the same protection when a sudden and intense force, or shock load, occurs. It’s a significant and exclusive safety advancement from the Breeze-Eastern research and development team.

THE ROC IS INSTALLED ON MORE THAN 100 U.S. COAST GUARD H-65 DOLPHIN HELICOPTERS.

PRODUCT TECHNOLOGY SPOTLIGHT

Lighted Bumper & Interchangeable Hooks

Designed for commercial and military operators performing missions in dark or low-light conditions and inclement weather, the lighted hook bumper features 14 LEDs located in upward- and downward-facing rings, providing distinguishable optical clarity of 656 ft (200 m) — all with a life span estimated at 5,000 hours or five years of fielded service.

In addition, Breeze-Eastern Slide-Lock, D-Lock and Auto-Lock hooks — 10 assemblies in all — are now interchangeable with any Breeze-Eastern hoist, enabling hook substitutions based on user preference.
