Double Brakes on Lodestars Lodestars can be supplied with double brakes. Each brake can sustain the full load giving added safety in critical applications, either to new hoists or retro fitted to your existing stock. Double DC brake with 50-millisecond delay between first and second brake for reduced stress loading during operation and easy identification of any problems with the first brake. Designed to easily isolate brakes for individual inspection.
Silentstar Lodestars can be equipped with a special DC braking system which dramatically reduces the noise levels by approximately 25%.
We can supply and fit a range of Skjonberg encoders to CM Lodestar hoists; the encoder mounts inside the
hoist and picks up a drive from the gearbox. A cable and XLR plug are fitted. Standard encoders
normally have six pulses per revolution of the load chain wheel. Single phase and dual phase encoders available.
As part of the BGV C1 development, a range of other encoders are available.
Silencing Cover A cover can be manufactured to fit over the hoist body to reduce noise during operation.
Weather Cover Covers can be manufactured to fit over the hoist body to help protect against rain ingress (see photo).
Embroider Chain bags and weather covers can be embroidered with your company logos etc.
Further details and demonstrations on request.
