product

Overview

PowerLift is an economical, automated hoisting system available in a range of fixed or variable speeds to meet your requirements. Its versatile mounting clip system enables the PowerLift to be installed in virtually any space, including performance spaces without a conventional grid. The clip mounting options make this possible, even if the supporting steelwork is not in the optimum position.

  • Speed: Up to 180 fpm (1 m/s)
  • Travel: Up to 62 ft (19 m)
  • Gross Cap.: Up to 2000 lb (907 kg)

Applications

PowerLift's high capacity and compact size make it ideal for many stage hoisting applications including:
  • Lighting
  • Scenery
  • Shell ceilings

The J.R. Clancy Advantage

  • Integrated gearmotor and brake provides proven reliability and features an iron case for vibration and noise control.
  • Reliable head block with nylon sheaves provides long, trouble-free life and meets or exceeds wire rope manufacturer recommendations.
  • Closed loop vector drives provide pinpoint accuracy and can hold the load without a brake for added security.
  • Hoists can be mounted vertically or horizontally. For theatres without grids, vertical mounting can save space and offers easier access for maintenance.
  • Versatile mounting clips encompass a tremendous range of beam spacing and flange widths for easy installation.
  • Compact moving drum allows for a small, efficient hoist. Preloaded chase rollers ensure cables stay in grooves.
  • Sturdy aluminum backbone eliminates external strengthening members.
  • Center to center spacing 12” (305 mm) side by side, 8” (203 mm) offset
  • Dual brake.
  • Dual encoder.

Controls

PowerLift works with the entire range of Clancy automation consoles or push button controls. It is designed to work with J.R. Clancy’s SceneControl family of consoles.
