The new KITO electric chain hoist ER2 has been released as a product that further builds upon KITO’s previous ER series. Seeking improved ease of use and work efficiency, an inverter has been provided as standard in a dual speed hoist and trolley. The dual speed inverter delivers smoother movement than ever, reducing load swing.
To ensure safety, KITO utilizes a double safety mechanism consisting of an originally developed friction clutch and upper-lower limit switch. Uniquely-designed push button control on the basis of ergonomics, enhanced durability of load chain, improved ease of maintenance as well as support for the environment achieve higher safety and working efficiency. These products, therefore, provide long-period stable operation, which is essential for improving production efficiency. Due to further improved durability, the increased product service life and reduced running costs have resulted in minimizing the lifetime cost.
KITO electric chain hoists have sought the industry’s top level of safety, durability and ease of maintenance, and to continue as highly trusted products selected around the world, the evolution of KITO electric chain hoists continues.Download Brochure
The compact aluminum die-cast body has exceptional rigidity as well as, high dust-protection and water-protection. It has a simple structure with a small number of parts. Fine-tuned profile of the load chain link benefits loss of the hoist body weight compared to the previous ER.
Inverter : smooth transitional speed
The dual speed inverter delivers smoother movement than the pole change motor, reducing load swing. The high to low speed ratio can be set to a large value. This results in smooth starts, improved low speed stops, and improved positioning accuracy. The standard speed ratio is 6:1 adjustable up to 12:1* for lifting and 10:1* for traversing.
ER2/MR2 inverter unit is well-customized for lifting/traversing applications including exclusive software with optimum control and is also provided with measures against impact and heat which were verified through long run tests.
*For a speed ratio other than the standard, please make a request at the time of placing an order.
