Movecat presents the Plus-C 250-4 electric chain hoist

(PresseBox) (Nufringen, ) At the prolight+sound 2009 in Frankfurt, Movecat presented a new D8 Plus electric chain hoist: the Plus-C 250-4. The device is based on the tried-and-tested Compact series, which has proved highly efficient in practice. One of the advantages of the Plus-C 250-4 is a well balanced central transmission block to which the drive motor is flange-mounted directly to the side. This structure, together with the protected fan wheel, optimizes the heat dissipation, thereby extending the duty cycle.

Thanks to the off-centre modular structure of the lift, it has proved possible to optimize all its components to achieve a higher laden-to-unladen weight ratio. The unladen weight of the Plus-C 250-4 is a mere 31 kilos - and that's including the standard 18 metres of chain. Other lengths of chain are available as options.

The Plus-C hoist is equipped with specially developed components such as two independent, maintenance-free brakes and a friction clutch to guard against overload; these guarantee safe and reliable operation even during sustained periods of use. The safety friction clutch mounted in front of the brakes is a force- and form-fitted implementation. All the bearing parts exhibit a design factor of 10:1. Standard features include a textile chain container, a robust carrying handle and an improved, chain-sparing, 'Easyplate' chain guide that offers you the choice of using the hoist in a standard installation position or as a climbing hoist without conversion.

The new electric chain hoist complies in every respect with the D8 Plus / VPLT SR 2.0 guidelines. It is recommended for building-up and dismantling operations in the trade fair, stage, show and touring businesses as well as installation work in theatres, multi-function halls and studios, obviating the need for the 'secondary' safety component as well as the time-consuming 'dead hang' of the system that would otherwise be required for D8 applications.
