Elevation Conversion Kit
The conversion system is unique in its ability to allow a hoist to be controlled at both fixed and variable speed.
Due to the more complex control required to run a chain hoist at variable speed a simple conversion must first be carried out. This conversion upgrades some of the electrical components within the hoist, and where the hoist does not already have a compatible device, adds a high resolution encoder.
Once the conversion is completed, the hoist can be plugged straight into an Elevation 1+ chain hoist controller to give millimetre precise positioning and full variable speed control. It can also, however, be controlled at fixed speed by a standard motor controller with the inclusion of a Ceeform adaptor.
Conversions can be performed either by Kinesys or in most cases by the end-user; a comprehensive user manual is supplied with each kit.
The Elevation conversion system is unique in its ability to allow a hoist to be controlled at both fixed and variable speed without any further modification. Compatible hoists include CM Lodestar, Liftket/Chainmaster and GIS models. Custom kits for other makes of hoists can also be provided, please contact us for further details.
