These include an infinitely-variable speed control with soft starting speeds as low as 3.15 inches/minute; a 1:200 control ratio that produces gentle positioning in addition to high speed travel; automatic switchover to low speed prior to reaching the upper/lower stop; acceleration and braking ramps to prevent load sway; and up to 90% higher nominal speed for partial load or no-load operations. Designed with safety, convenience and low maintenance in mind, the entire family of DCS-Pro chain hoists includes as standard 24V control voltage and operating limit switches for improved safety and reliability, a brake-coupling system which ensures that loads are held securely in all operating situations, and a speed monitored slipping clutch for effective cut-off on overload allow safe operation. The DCS also comes standard with "plug & lift" connections that make the hoist simple to install, while the gearbox, brake and slipping clutch are maintenance-free for up to 10 years, while the modular chain drive can be quickly and easily replaced without having to remove the motor or gear parts.
