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.

The VMK-S II hoists meet in full the requirements of BGV C1 / DGUV V17/18, DIN 56950-1 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.

V-Motion Powerpacks are designed for the operation of controlled drives such as VMK-S C1 chain hoists, VMW-S Entertainment Winches or comparable drives.

In their basic configuration, they comply with BGV C1 / DGUV V17 and EN 61508 SIL 1, however they can be upgraded for SIL 3 applications and therefore for the movement of scenery over human heads.

The E series is equipped with a integrated special line- and motor-filter. They allow the use of up to 50/75 m PMC-HV motor cable while complying with Interference Suppression Class C1/C2 EN 61800-3 and the operation of multiple devices with RCD Type B / 30 mA safety switches.

Models with motor outputs ranging from 250 to 7,500W in a single- and dual-channel axis processor version.
