Electric Chain Hoist Now Available with Variable Speed



"The CM ShopStar VS offers true variable speed operation and high-duty-cycle capability to provide the operational flexibility required for demanding industrial lifting applications," said a company spokesperson.

The CM ShopStar VS electric chain hoist from Columbus McKinnon Corporation, designed for use on production lines, assembly workstations or anywhere precision lifting and load control is required, features a high H4-plus duty cycle and compact design.

"The ShopStar VS is a superior alternative to air hoists," said a company spokesperson. "With lower operating and installation costs, the ShopStar VS is more energy efficient and requires less downtime for maintenance. In addition, this new electric chain hoist offers cleaner and quieter operation with more responsive controls than an air hoist."

The ShopStar VS features a lifetime-lubricated gear train, a fully enclosed hoist frame designed to protect the hoist motor from environmental contamination and lifetime warranty.

The CM ShopStar VS features an H4-plus duty cycle, more than 300 motor starts per hour and Class F motor insulation for heavy-duty use. The ShopStar VS is available in capacities from 250 to 1,100 lbs. and features speeds up to 63 FPM.

The VS also features a thermally protected hoist motor and a cast aluminum alloy hoist frame and body with an epoxy powder coat finish. With single- and three-phase voltage options, the ShopStar VS can be configured to a variety power supplies.
