Customer's benefit

For both path and load measurement, additional components and electrical parts can be easily integrated in the chain hoist. On the drive shaft and/or the chain wheel, the installation of incremental or absolute encoders is prepared for path measurement. Special eyebolt and hook suspensions allow easy installation of a load measuring pin for load measurement. Our partners who develop and supply the control for multiple hoists value this highly.

All LP motors are equipped with a 3-stage self-contained gear. The helical gearing with geometric optimisation and the chain wheel with minimum 5 pockets ensure extremely quiet running. This allows the quiet handling of loads during events. Thanks to the sound absorption of the transmission the sound pressure level of the LP500 is only 60 dB.
