Columbus McKinnon Corp. has added new variable frequency drives (VFD) and spark-resistant options to its Yale Global King and Shaw-Box World Series electric wire rope hoists for the U.S. market.
The hoists also come equipped with safety features including overload and overspeed protection as well as safety readouts for easy troubleshooting. VFD options are available on monorail, top-running double girder, and deck-mounted Global King and World Series hoists with capacities ranging from 1 to 20 metric tons. The line’s spark-resistant options include bronze sheaves, bronze trolley wheels, a copper-plated or bronze load hook, and drop stops with rubber bumpers. These options are available on explosion-proof Global King and World Series hoists with underhung and top-running trolleys as well as deck-mounted configurations.
