Product Description

The CM ShopStar VS variable speed electric chain hoist is built for rugged industrial and commercial applications where precision load control is critical.

Adjust & Monitor Hoist Performance with Easy-To-Use interface

Whether you need to adjust your hoist operating speeds or check motor run time and over-current events, the ShopStar VS puts the information you need at your fingertips. With the convenient USB connectivity, the operator can simply plug the hoist in to a computer or tablet to change or access performance information. The interface is designed for ease of use allowing you to choose the control method of the hoist as well as the maximum, minimum and if applicable, medium speed of the hoist. The ShopStar VS interface also provides: • Built-in error prevention that ensures the hoist is programmed correctly, rejecting incorrect parameters and prompting the operator to make corrections before programming is complete. • Acceleration and deceleration rates automatically calculated based on control methods and speed selections. • Comprehensive hoist status information, including start/stop cycles, motor run time, over temp and over current events, as well as temperature. Hoist fault information is also available.
