Kinesys Apex Chain Hoist System Kinesys has launched the Apex chain hoist system. The system was launched with a new hoist controller and two new chain hoists. The range includes both 500 kg and 1250 kg hoists with maximum speeds of 30 m/min and 12 m/min, respectively. All the hoists have integral loadcells, silent dual monitored brakes, absolute and incremental encoders, and meet the require- ments of EN61508-SIL3 and DIN56950. The drive units can be either rack or truss mounted for more adaptability and depending on the application. Pass through connections for both power and data make cabling simpler and standard power and Ethernet cables offer more flexibility. A clear touchscreen display provides operators with essential feedback and allows manual control of the hoist from the controller itself. Safety-over-data is fundamental to the Apex system, allowing bi-directional SIL3 safety information to pass over the data network. This permits multiple controllers to be linked together for group shutdown if required.
