Direct controlled chain hoists

01 September 2014

Terex Material Handling has released an additional model within its Demag DC chain hoist family.

The DC-ProDC models feature direct control offering a reliable solution for a wide range of industrial, warehouse and logistics’ applications. Direct controlled Demag DC-ProDC chain hoists are also suitable for the refurbishment and upgrade of existing material handling systems, with the chain hoist operated by an existing control system with a line supply.

DC-ProDC chain hoist: direct control for loads up to 5t

DC-ProDC chain hoists with direct control are available in seven sizes with load capacities between 80 and 5,000 kg. Depending on the load capacity, lifting speeds range from 4 to 24 m/min. 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 may be operated with Demag DSK or DST control pendants. Operating limit switches can be incorporated safety cut off of the lifting motions. As with all other chain hoists in the DC product range, the DC-ProDC gearbox is maintenance free for up to 10 years.

Rugged and reliable at higher temperatures

Advanced engineering ensures that DC-ProDC chain hoists may be employed under extremely arduous ambient conditions and at very high temperatures. The rugged design provides for operation at temperatures up to 80°C and offers ease of maintenance.

On line hoist selection facility
The Demag product configurator (Hoist Designer) can be used to specify a chain hoist with direct control. This user friendly online planning tool enables a large number of possible variants to be configured to select the correct hoist for a specific application. The hoist may then be ordered direct via the Demag Shop system.
