Description

CM HI-TECH™ (HOIST INTERFACE TECHNOLOGY):

  • Effortlessly customize each unit for any application with intuitive and easy-to-use programming software. Set speed, acceleration/deceleration rates, swift lift, limit switches, overload protection, and more. No programming experience necessary.

LESS MAINTENANCE & EASY INSPECTION:

  • Brake location allows for quick access and easy inspection. Lifetime grease-lubricated Gear Box means no oil change out is required. Precision gears provide better wear and longer life. Clutch located outside the Gear Box allows for easy access which eliminates the need for complete disassembly and reduces downtime.

REAL-TIME MAINTENANCE AND DIAGNOSTICS:

  • Easily track operation and hours for preventative maintenance and failure diagnostics. View operation statistics and recent fault codes to allow for on-the-spot troubleshooting and easy determination of hoist maintenance needs.

LONG AND CHAIN SERVICE LIFE:

  • Heavy-duty DC brake and motor are designed for a long service life. Lifetime grease-lubricated Gear Box and helical gearing ensures better wear and smooth operation. 5-Pocket Lift Wheel provides excellent chain and lift wheel engagement for smoother lifting and reduced vibration. Zinc plating protects chain from environmental conditions.

IMPROVED LOAD SAFETY:

  • Clutch is located outside the load path, preventing slipping of the load in an overload condition when the brake is not powered.

IMPROVED SERVICEABILITY:

  • Easy access to the Clutch, Motor, Electrical Control Panel and Brake Assembly.

QUIET OPERATION:

  • 80% reduction in sound pressure as compared to the classic Lodestar.

EASY ACCESS CONTROL PANEL:
