    Default New Warn Zeon

    With new homepage info:

    http://www.expeditionportal.com/expe...on-reveal.html

    Straight from the home page. Looks like Warn is coming out with something new




    From this post: http://blogs.off-roadweb.com/6781952...rn-zeon-winch/


    10/4/2012) Just minutes ago, we got a first look at the new Warn Zeon winch line that Warn will be launching at the 2012 SEMA show in about four weeks.

    It is available in 8,000, 10,000, or 12,000-pound steel cable versions, or in 8,000 and 10,000-pound synthetic line versions.

    The new Zeon line of Warn winches feature larger planetary and sun gears that use larger retaining pins (still employs a three-stage design).


    There is an updated clutch engagement handle (for free spooling the cable) and a removable remote-mount control box.

    The Zeon winches are IP68 rated for superior sealing against the elements.

    The motor caps on the Zeon winches also use five cap bolts instead of two (for better sealing).

    The brushes are mounted against the aluminum drum to improve heat dissipation.

    The new aluminum drum is larger than on other predating models--measures in at 3.15 inches.

    There is also a new wire rope anchor in the drum that uses a slot to lock in a puck.

    That's all we know for now. We'll let you know if we find out anything new

    Over the last three years WARN has quietly been working with consumers to find out exactly what they wanted in a winch and more importantly—how they wanted a winch to perform. WARN equipped consumers with a variety of prototype models and asked for feedback and honest evaluation and the result is the brand-new WARN ZEON Series. The robust aluminum winch is available in three different capacities with traditional steel rope: 8,000, 10,000 and 12,000 pounds, and two capacities being offered with WARN's Spydura synthetic rope: 8,000 and 10,000 pounds. Oh, and major points to WARN for making the ZEON right here in America.



    The ZEON has been completely built from the ground up and features a symmetrical design which completely does away with any exposed wires on the outside of the housing in addition to providing IP68 sealing to keep the elements where they belong.

    Features:

    Three-stage planetary gear train
    Convertible control pack
    Large diameter aluminum drum
    Automatic mechanical brake
    Stainless steel hardware
    New motor and motor housing
    Contactor control
    IP86 rated weather sealing
    Satin black powder coat finish



    WARN is offering its Spydura synthetic rope on 8,000 and 10,000 pound variations.

    Synthetic models Include

    100’ of 3/8” WARN
    Spydura® synthetic rope,
    A ballistic nylon sliding chafe sleeve
    Polished Aluminum Hawse Fairlead


    Standard versions of the ZEON come with steel wire rope and a roller fairlead. The ZEON 8 comes with 100' of 5/16" wire rope, while the ZEON 10 and ZEON 12 comes with 80' of 3/8" wire rope.



    A winch rope cover is available as an accesory to help protect your rope or wire from the elements.



    In factory form, the ZEON has the control pack mounted ontop of the winch, if this doesn't fit your application, WARN has a Control Pack relocation kit available.





    Pricing:

    ZEON 8 - $999.00

    ZEON 10 - $1099.00

    ZEON 12 - $1199.00

    ZEON 8-S $1249.00

    ZEON 10-S $1349.00

    Doesn't look like it is up on Warn's site yet though.

    Looks like they squished Darth Vaders head, and slapped a "W" on it!


    Nice pricing though!

    Would look out of place on my old CJ, but would look really good on a lot of the newer vehicles, as streamlined as it is.
