Mechanical Load Brake Weston type, controls load lowering and prevents load drift. Holds rated load independent of multiple disc motor brake.
Multiple Disc Motor Brake
Heavy duty, direct acting design for positive load spotting and holding.
Ergonomic Designed Push Button Station
Fits operator’s hand for thumb or two-handed operation. 24 Volt Control standard for operator safety. 115 Volt Control available upon request. NEMA 3R (weather resistant). Constructed of glass-filled nylon for severe impact and chemical/corrosive atmosphere resistance.
Five-Pocket Load Sheave Increases chain and sheave engagement 25% over hoists with conventional four-pocket sheaves. Provides smoother lifting and reduces chain wear over four-pocket sheaves.
Solid State Starting Switch Standard on single phase units. Provides greater reliability and starting consistency than centrifugal switches - fewer components to wear out or fail.
Adjustable to regulate upper and lower load travel. Brass nuts standard for improved switch setting and repeatability. Stainless steel limit switch shaft standard.
Chain End Stop Assembly
Fits below dead end link on lifting chain for added measure of safety.
Provides easy access to controls and motor leads for changing voltage on dual-voltage motors or performing hoist maintenance. Connection wires are numbered to assist maintenance or repair.
Protects hoist, operator, and supporting structures from damaging overloads, chain jamming, and reverse phasing.
Gearing and Transmission First stage helical gearing on EC small frame; first and third stage helical gearing on EC large frame. Transmission gears are precision machined of alloy steel and run in oil bath for longer, quieter operation.
