Variable lifting speeds for load capacities up to 5,500 lbs

DCS-Pro chain hoist

An investment with added value

Our DCS-Pro chain hoists ensure maximum precision in gently and safely lifting, lowering and positioning valuable and sensitive parts in assembly operations. Our almost double rated partial load range speed enables lifting motions to be performed more reliably, quickly and efficiently.

  • Variable speed over the entire load spectrum
  • Exceptional control at slow speed
  • Up to 90% higher speeds for smaller loads thanks to its Pro-Hub function
  • Load capacities up to 5,500 lbs (2,500 kg)

Product information

The benefits at a glance

Feature-rich with no need for extras

  • Many features already included as standard

Convenient operation

  • Automatic switchover to creep lifting speed before the upper/lower limit positions are reached
  • Lifting speed, acceleration and braking ramp can be simply modified via the pendant
  • Infinitely variable speed control for lifting and lowering motions over the entire load range
  • Variable travel speeds when used with E 11/34 travel drives

High safety and reliability

  • Gentle starting and precise positioning due to particularly fine control at low speeds
  • Acceleration and braking ramps to reduce load sway
  • Motor temperature monitoring enhances safety

Versatile performance

  • Creep lifting speed from 0.5 ft/min (0.15 m/min) (DCS 1 and 2)
    and 0.26 ft/min (0.08 m/min) (DCS 5)
  • Gentle positioning and fast travel thanks to a 1:100 control ratio
  • Pro-Hub function for up to 90% higher nominal speed for partial load or no-load operations
  • Wide voltage range input 380–480 V/50–60 Hz

Optimized safety

  • Improved safety and reliability thanks to 24 V control voltage and operating limit switches
  • Cut-off on overload thanks to speed-monitored slipping clutch
  • Brake/coupling system helps avoid load sinking

Optimized efficiency

  • Quick installation and commissioning
  • Fast and ergonomic height adjustment of the control pendant without additional wiring
  • Quick and easy access to all key plug-and-socket connections, height adjustment of the control pendant and chain lubrication thanks to pivoting service cover
  • Elapsed operating time counter and diagnosis interface
  • Interchangeable chain drive can be quickly and easily replaced without the need to remove motor or gearbox parts
  • High flexibility
  • Gearbox, brake and slipping clutch are maintenance-free for up to 10 years

Ergonomic operation

  • Simple commissioning and service due to plug-&-lift and plug-&-drive connections
  • Fatigue-free operation thanks to ergonomic, plug-in DSC-S control pendant
  • Two suspension bracket sizes enhances flexibility
  • Fast and simple installation thanks to infinitely variable trolley and flange width adjustment
