Demag DC-ProDC Chain Hoists Offer Direct Control
Terex Material Handling is offering another model in its Demag DC chain hoist family for direct integration into customer installations. DC-ProDC units feature direct control for applications like raising and lowering lifting doors or furnace lids at high ambient temperatures. Direct-controlled Demag DC-ProDC chain hoists are also employed wherever a customer wants to refurbish an existing installation and needs a lifting solution where the chain hoist is controlled by an existing control system with a line supply.
Direct control for loads up to 5 tonnes
DC-ProDC chain hoists with direct control 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). The chain hoist can be controlled direct via a line supply. A terminal strip integrated in the unit provides for direct and simple connection. Alternatively, DC-ProDC units can also be operated with Demag DSK or DST control pendants. Operating limit switches can be employed to cut off the lifting motions. As for all other chain hoists in the DC product family, the gearbox of units with direct control is also maintenance-free for up to 10 years.
DC-ProDC chain hoists with direct control can also be employed under arduous ambient conditions and high temperatures. The rugged design provides for operation at temperatures up to 80°C and offers ease of maintenance.
The Demag product configurator (Hoist Designer) can be used to specify a chain hoist with direct control. This online planning tool enables a large number of possible variants to be configured to select the right hoist unit and then order it direct via the Demag Shop system.
