PowerLift Hoists

Movement on stage is part of the excitement of live performance. The Five variable speed models offer combinations of speeds and lifting speeds selection to provide the action you need Variable speed hoists let you make subtle changes, or fast dramatic moves – and anything in between. If your theatre is used for dramas or musicals, you'll want the Performance Line. Variable speed up to 180 fpm and capacities up to 2,000 lbs.

What's New? PowerLifts have a dual braking system - the primary brake on the motor, backed up by a redundant load brake on the drum shaft for added safety. The "E" series uses an electric load brake instead of a mechanical "drag" brake. Drag brakes have been used on hoists for over 100 years, but they can be noisy. The electric load brake operates quickly and quietly. Speed sensors on the motor and drum shaft let the system compare the actual speed with both the commanded speed and maximum speed. The sensors can also monitor the integrity of the shafting and gearbox for an added level of security. These sensors can detect problems at the moment they occur and respond quickly. This minimizes the stopping distance as well as the forces on the rigging and the payload.
