The KITO EQ Series Electric Chain Hoist offers a product line with several industry-firsts compared to standard, competitive products targeted at moderate and heavy duty users. This high-performance electric chain hoist is available in the capacities of 125 kg, 250 kg, 500 kg and 1000 kg, with a variety of suspensions and lifting heights.The EQ is equipped with an inverter which provides an industry-first "light load high-speed" function that automatically increases hoist speed to 130 % when the load is less than 30 % of WLL. As a result, users can expect the production cycle to improve up to 115 % of standard. This unique operating characteristic makes the product ideal for assembly lines, work stations, and repetitive operation applications. As well, the inverter provides electronic overload and overheating protection, plus allows easy adjustment of both the high and low lifting and lowering speeds.
Equipped with a very light aluminium die-cast body this new electric chain hoist of Kito stands out due to its compact and lightweight design and unique load and speed control features. The EQ includes a frequency inverter providing these benefits: cushioned and adjustable speed for ultimate load control as well as electronic thermal and overload protection. The standard configuration with a frequency inverter and its unique software eliminates several wear items typically used in conventional hoists including transformer, magnetic contactor, brake contactor and brake coil. Similar to all Kito chain hoists, the EQ comes standard with a Kito brand grade 80 NP type load chain. This nickel-plated chain is well known for its corrosion resistance, as well as a super-smooth surface that greatly reduces link-to-link wear. The hoist employs a highly durable pull-rotor brake system, proven reliable in past Kito products. Up to two million brake cycles can be expected from the system.
