EQ Electric chain hoist

A Milestone on the market for electric chain hoists

Its compactness and its reduced dimensions are some of the special features of KITO’s EQ electric chain hoist. The EQ offers in comparison to KITO’s ER2 series, a considerable reduction in the net weight by 23 %. With the lifting capacities ranging from 250 kg, 500 kg to 1,000 kg the EQ can be used to perform a wide range of commonplace tasks. Furthermore a wide variety of suspensions and lifting heights are available.

The EQ product line is targeted at moderate and heavy duty users, with several unique design features that benefit these customer segments.
The EQ includes an inverter that 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 line, work station, and repetitive operation applications.
As well the inverter provides these benefits: cushioned and adjustable speed for ultimate load control as well as electronic thermal and overload protection. The inverter and its unique software also eliminate several wear items typically used in conventional hoists, including a transformer, contactor, or brake coil.
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.
