Electric chain hoist
By Mary Del
The DCS-Pro electric chain hoist line from Demag Cranes and Components is designed to allow operators to handle and precisely position critically sensitive loads with ease. Features include an infinitely variable speed control with soft starting speeds as low as eight centimetres/minute; a 1:200 control ratio that produces gentle positioning in addition to high-speed travel; automatic switchover to low speed prior to reaching the upper/lower stop; and acceleration and braking ramps to prevent load sway. Designed with safety, convenience and low maintenance in mind, the entire family of DCS-Pro chain hoists includes standard 24 V control voltage and operating limit switches for improved safety and reliability; a brake-coupling system that ensures that loads are held securely in all operating situations; and a speed monitored slipping clutch for effective cut-off on overload for safe operation. The DCS also comes standard with “plug and lift” connections for simple installation.
