Movecat VMK-S chain hoists – Series II

The fully dynamic Movecat BGV C1 chain hoists of the VMK-S Series II represent the current industry top standard for scene transformations involving the overhead movement of loads.

In Series II, the practical experience gleaned from numerous major projects in recent years has been incorporated, resulting in further increases in operating performance, operational and functional safety, and ease of maintenance.

This involved the thorough testing and optimisation of virtually all parts and components in the Movecat R&D department. Running noise for example, has been further reduced, the precision of actuators enhanced, the maximum cable length extended from 30 to 70m, and numerous components rendered entirely maintenance free.

The VMK-S II hoists meet in full the requirements of BGV C1, DIN 56950 and EN 61508 and are designed for SIL 3 applications.

In day-to-day operation, this means top performance without any compromises in terms of reliability and safety.

Models with lifting capacities ranging from 125 to 2,500kg and speeds continuously adjustable from 0 to 40 m/min in closed loop mode are available.
