The CL chain is a load chain for manual chain hoists with a surface featuring diffused nickel alloy. The ND chain is a load chain for electric chain hoists with a surface featuring diffused nickel alloy. The nickel-plated chain is a load chain with a surface electrolessplating with nickel alloy. All three have superior corrosion resistance.
Although the lifting height can be increased, the load chain is heat-treated, which means the chain cannot be extended. Instead, replace the chain with a load chain long enough to meet your needs (hand chains for chain hoists can also be added via a connection link). Also, for products with chain buckets, the chain bucket may have to be changed depending on the lifting height. In that case, please consult with KITO and KITO's global partners.
Chain buckets are available in a range of sizes based on capacity/lifting height. Depending on the increase in lifting height, a large-sized bucket may be needed. Please refer to either table of standard bucket lifting heights by models such as ER2, EQ, or EF to determine the maximum lifting height of each standard bucket size.
The cylinder type (ER2 and EDC) is designed for operators to operate by gripping the grip, while the lifting height is set to 1.8m to keep it within operators' reach. If you require a special lifting height, please consult with KITO and KITO's global partners.
The KITO electric chain hoist is designed to automatically apply a brake when the current flow is interrupted to stop the operation. In the unlikely event of a power outage, it promptly stops operation and suspends the hanging load as if the push button had not been activated.
As described in the owner's manual, the upper limit switch installed is the final device preventing overwinding in emergencies. Please refrain from using it on a regular basis, since this may damage the main body or break the chain. A limit switch for positioning is available as an option - please contact KITO and KITO's global partners separately in this case.
You cannot use the MR2 motorized trolley with the EQ electric chain hoist due to the differences in the electrical specifications. The MR2 motorized trolley is designed and manufactured on the assumption that it will be used in combination with the ER2 electric chain hoist. When combining the MR2 motorized trolley with ER2 electric chain hoist, failure to comply with this instruction may cause the hoist and trolley to malfunction. Concerning the handling of the MR2, see the ER2 electric chain hoist Owner's Manual that is supplied together with the ER2 electric chain hoist. Customer who have bought the MR2 motorized trolley as a single item and require a copy of the ER2 electric chain hoist Owner's Manual should contact KITO and KITO's global partners.
Since a two-stage push-to-switch push button is used, switching from low to high speed depends on the extent to which the push button is pushed. Push to the first stage for low speed and push right in to the second stage for high speed.
Yes, this is possible. The equipment is basically designed for indoor use. Therefore when installing the electric chain hoist outdoors or to the place where the hoist is exposed to direct rain, wind and snow, shade the hoist with roof to protect it from rain, wind and snow.
The safety factors of KITO products (in terms of load ratings) are specified within the scope of 4 to 5 for hoisting equipment, 5 for chain slings (they vary depending on model capacities, so please consult with KITO and KITO's global partners).
KITO supply a number of cranes and various handling machinery used by semiconductor/liquid crystal manufacturers/in other clean rooms. We handle product specifications according to your operating environment so please consult with KITO and KITO's global partners.
It is a year from the date of delivery of the actual product (Three years for ER2 only). Regarding warranty conditions, please see the warranty written in the owner's manual together with the product. Because end carriage is certified as complete crane system, it is excluded as product.
