Easy handling of the load with only one hand

The KITO Electric Chain Hoist Series ED is unsurpassed in its versatility. Anywhere a 220 – 240 V AC connection is available this KITO ED III hoist can be used immediately. KITO offers the Electric Chain Hoist EDC for special applications. This unit is equipped with a cylindrical handgrip control unit and is mainly used in the handling technology. By means of a potentiometer in the cylinder control unit the speed can be adjusted independently.

For ergonomic reasons, its lifting height is limited to 1.8 m. The operator guides the load with one hand, while controlling the lifting or lowering process. This is particularly convenient for repetitive transport procedures. It is possible to vary the preset speed to optimize the working process. Different load holding equipment, such as crate or package grippers, also ensures operator-friendly load handling. The bayonet closure permits quick changing of a wide variety of grippers and hooks.

The unit is designed for loads from 60 – 240 kg. Because of its light weight it can be quickly and individually deployed at different places. The gear casing is made from aluminium and is resistant to weathering and rust.

The EDC is available with dual lifting speed. In the load capacity range from 60 to 160 kg, the maximum speed is up to 20 m/min. There are also two motor variants, a DC motor with 300 W for the load capacity ranges 60, 100 and 180 kg, and a larger variant with 600-W output for load capacities up to 160 or 240 kg. Safety features include a high-performance mechanical brake with a friction clutch and an upper lift limit switch for increased safety. The standard equipment includes a plastic chain container. As options, the system offers the mini-trolley TMH 25, a plain trolley or a geared trolley up to 500 kg.
