MOVECAT VMK-S II Chain Hoist

LIFTKET Entertainment and Movecat North America, building lifting solutions together

VMK-S II Variable speed chain hoist

The VMK-S II hoists according to BGV C1, DIN 56950:2012-05 and EN 61508 SIL 3 are notable for their innovative feature set, flexible handling while following the highest standards of safety.

The hoists are particularly remarkable with  two independent, low noise and maintenance-free brakes with air gap monitoring. A real-time load-measuring module is integrated in the eyelet to calculate the real load, with overload and underload protection. To complete the hoist monitoring, a  thermosensor permanently checks the operating temperature of the motor.

Furthermore, dual-channel incremental encoder on the motor axis  and a high-resolution 29 bit absolute encoder on the chain output axis are used.  This allows for exact positioning with an impressive +/- 1mm that can be replicated at all times.

The VMK-S II hoists can run precise targets  with the greatest repetition accuracy.
