Hoist designed for simple, direct integration

August 12, 2014

Terex Material Handling’s Demag DC-ProDC chain hoist units feature direct control and are designed for simple, direct integration into facilities. Applications include raising and lowering lifting doors and furnace lids at high ambient temperatures.

The hoists also can be used to refurbish an installation and run by an existing control system with a line supply.

The hoists connect via a terminal strip integrated in the unit and are available in seven sizes with load capacities between 80 kg (176 lbs.) and 5,000 kg (11,023 lbs.). Depending on the load capacity, lifting speeds range from 4 m/min. (16 FPM) to 24 m/min. (96 FPM).

Alternatively, the units also can be operated with Demag DSK or DST control pendants. Operating limit switches can be employed to cut off the lifting motions. The gearbox is maintenance-free for up to 10 years, the company says.

A product configurator on the company’s website can be used to select the correct hoist for a specific application.
