All inclusive – fully featured with no need for extras

DC-Pro chain hoist

The industry benchmark

With our DC-Pro chain hoist, we meet our own high standards in terms of quality and innovation.The DC-Pro chain hoist is a fully featured, highly versatile chain hoist, which can be installed and put into service in minimum time. Many features that have to be ordered and bought as extras elsewhere are already integrated as standard. The result:

  • "all inclusive" features at no extra cost
  • two lifting speeds as standard
  • improved safety thanks to 24 V contactor control, operating limit switches and elapsed operating time counter as standard
  • slipping clutch with automatic cut-out by means of speed monitoring
  • optimum ergonomics and ease of service
  • main components are maintenance-free for up to 10 years.

  • 24 V contactor control
  • Operating limit switches (upper/lower)
  • Elapsed operating time counter
  • Aluminium housing components with powder coating
  • Duty factor: 60% (40/20), 360 starts/hour
  • Signals for applications with three motion axes
  • Suitable for tandem operation
  • Comprehensive selection of finely graded load capacities up to 5,000 kg
  • Suspension brackets for improved C dimension (for sizes DC 1–10)

Long service life

  • Gearbox, brake and slipping clutch are maintenance-free for up to 10 years (DC-Pro 10–25 brake for up to 5 years)
  • Low-wear brake thanks to regenerative braking
  • Brake adjustment is not necessary
  • No load dropping thanks to slipping clutch arranged in front of the brake in the load-bearing arrangement
  • Reduced chain wear thanks to 1/1 reeving for loads up to 1,000 kg
  • Robust cylindrical-rotor motor with fan and separate DC brake
  • No brake bonding thanks to double encapsulated brake

High operating reliability

  • Standard requirements satisfied for functional safety
  • No continuous slipping thanks to slipping clutch with automatic cut-out
  • 24 V contactor control with internal “tri-state” signal transfer
  • Chain hoist and travel drive feature IP 55 enclosure, insulation class F
  • Automatic braking if the control system fails

Optimum egonomics

  • Height-adjustable DSC/DSC-S control pendants with low-fatigue actuation force
  • Control cable length and control pendant position can be adjusted to meet specific needs on site
    (without any need for wiring)
  • Pivoting suspension bracket enables the chain hoist to be attached when the trolley has been fitted

Service-friendly

  • "Plug & Lift" and "Plug & Drive" for all electrical connections
  • Elapsed operating time counter, status and error messages shown on display
  • Infrared diagnostic interface with IDAPSY software (to read out and manage specific data)
  • Service cover for rapid access to plug connections, strain relief arrangements, collector for 3 m control cable and chain drive
  • Chain lubrication through lubrication opening in the chain guide for improved lubrication between links (sizes DC 1–10)
  • Reduced downtimes as chain drive can be replaced without dismantling motor or gearbox parts

Customer benefits at a glance

Safety

Safety

  • Low-voltage control pendant thanks to 24 V contactor control system
  • Safety-related functions satisfy at least Performance Level c and Category 2 to EN ISO 13849-1
Minimum load sway

Minimum load sway

  • Smooth cross-travel starting and braking motions for low-sway load handling
  • Speeds and acceleration/braking rates can be modified by means of the control pendant, if required
Long service life

Long service life

  • Generously specified gearbox. 2m+ (1,900 hours) for main load capacities and up to 4m (6,300 hours) for demanding applications
  • All sub-assemblies of the chain hoist are rated for a long service life, even under the most demanding conditions
Temperature range

Temperature range

  • Reliable operation from -20 °C to +45 °C without any reduction in the duty factor
  • Operation also possible up to 60 °C and more
Ergonomics

Ergonomics

  • Length of control cable or position of control pendant can be adjusted without the need for any wiring
  • Length of control cable that is not needed can be stored under the service cover
High performance monitor

High-performance motor

  • Hoist motor has large safety reserves to provide for reliable operation for many years
  • Can be used for switching cycles way beyond usual market levels
Pro Hub function

Pro-Hub function

  • Up to 90% higher rated lifting speed in reduced load range
Easy to service

Easy to service

  • Gearbox & slipping clutch maintenance-free for up to 10 years
  • Brake maintenance-free for up to 10 years (up to 5 years for DC 10–25)
  • Simple and rapid maintenance and repair of individual components thanks to the modular chain hoist design – cuts any downtime to a minimum
Variable speeds

Variable speeds

  • Valuable and sensitive parts can be moved and positioned more smoothly and reliably
  • Variable button characteristic like a car accelerator pedal
Status display

Status display

  • Display for elapsed operating time counter and operating statuses
  • Always up-to-date for service purposes
Slipping clutch monitoring

Slipping clutch monitoring

  • Harmful continuous slipping eliminated thanks to speed monitoring
  • Reliable protection against extreme overload
  • Load securely held in any operating situation and cannot drop while hoist is at standstill, since brake is arranged in front of the slipping clutch in load-bearing arrangement
Low noise level

Low noise level

  • Reduced operating noise thanks to helical gearing in all gearbox stages
  • Smooth running characteristics thanks to high-quality gearing
