Electric Installation and Wire Gauge Selection




Choose the Correct Wire Gauge


Use the provided wire gauge calculator at the right of this page to determine the right cable size for your setup installation. The use of smaller gauges will cause internal damage and voids the warranty.


Wire Gauge Calculator

If more than one unit is connected to the same power line consider the total power consumption for all units for this line.
Circuit Breaker recommendation: Must be MPCB Type (Motor Protection Circuit Breaker) and at least 25% higher than the rated consumption Amps.
The information provided in these charts is for reference only and not intended to provide complete requirements or qualifications for selecting the proper cable size for various conductor lengths. The requirements of the National Electric Code (NEC) and any applicable local codes must always be followed when determining proper wire sizes. Use this information for reference only.
Use of wire sizes smaller than the determined above will void warranty.

Gear Lubrication


Lubricate your unit before use.

Do not operate a unit without lubrication. Some Gearboxes are shipped without lubrication depending on the lubrication type as a shipping safety measure.

Do not mix lubricant types or brands.

Using the wrong type of lubricant will cause failure. Please review the manual and safety bulletin for further information.


Chain Maintenance and Lubrication


Regular maintenance shall be performed to lubricate the chain including cleaning and check wearing. Debris, rust and misalignment can cause internal damage and will shortness the lifespan of your unit.


Check the Chain Alignment


Determining Twisted, Kinked or “Capsized” Load Chain. Ensure the chain is not twisted, kinked or “capsized” during installation.

For units with more than 1 chain fall Hook Block can loop over during shipping or installation, causing chain link twisting, where the chain links will not follow a straight pattern. To fix this flip the Hook Block in the opposite direction until you get a straight pattern and proper alignment of the chain links. Not following this instruction will cause malfunction of the limit switches, internal damage and will void the warranty.


Pendant Control Strain Relief


Properly attach the provided Strain Relief Cable. Installing the Strain Relief Cable will protect the main pendant cable from undue strain, pulling or tugging or from the cable sheathing itself.




Read and Understand the manual.

Follow the corresponding ASME Standard for your unit and read the Safety Bulletin.

Not following these guidelines will void the warranty.
