Electric Chain Hoist Description
The M5 Prowinch 1/2 ton Electric Chain Hoist helps you to easily lift loads with the push of a button. The hoist is powered by a three-phase electrical connection, and the heavy duty motor makes it perfect for use in industrial environments.
Prowinch Electric Chain HoistAll of our Electric Chain Hoists are created with the goal of offering the best price–performance ratio. Key components such as lifespan factors are constantly tested and improved in order to offer the best product for the price.
Key ComponentsAll internal components have been upgraded to meet the highest quality standards. Key electronic components are produced by American or German brands, and we use American-made lubricants to ensure the lifespan of gears and reducers. Final assembly and all tests are performed in the US before shipping to ensure that every unit meets the corresponding standard.
Duty ClassificationDuty Classification is a key factor when choosing the right unit. These H4 hoists are suitable for high-volume handling in steel warehouses, machine shops, fabricating plants and mills, and foundries. For uniformly distributed work periods, the hoists have 50% max. operational time per hour and can handle up to 300 starts per hour. When being used for infrequent work periods, the hoist can be operated for 30 minutes from a cold start with up to 300 starts per hour. Operational time ratings are calculated at a 65% load factor, as per ASME HST-1-2012.
Control SystemThis electric chain hoist comes standard with a pendant control. The length of the control is 4 feet less than the lifting height, which allows it to be easily operated from ground-level. An optional wireless control is available for extra convenience.
Braking System The electromagnetic brake system is tested at 125% of the hoist capacity and is designed to automatically engage immediately upon any loss of power. "
