The Movecat UPstage electric chain hoist is based on the tried-and-tested Compact series. The design objective was to satisfy the demanding requirements of use with events equipment and to combine safety of operation with an ultra-compact, lightweight format to guarantee simple and practice-optimized handling.
The salient feature is the light metal housing, which is closed on all sides and offers two metal handles, as well as the outstanding laden/ unladen weight ratio (e.g. UPstage 500-4 unladen weight only 32 kg incl. 18.4 m chain, chain bag, chain hook and single-hole eyelet). The UPstage hoist is equipped with specially developed components such as a maintenance-free brake and an overload- safety-frictionclutch that guarantee safe and reliable operation even during prolonged use. The safety friction clutch mounted in front of the brake is a force- and form-fitted implementation.
The UPstage hoist complies in every respect with the BGV D8 and DGVU V54 standards.
The standard equipment includes a textile chain bag (DIN 4102 B1 compliant), robust handles and the improved, chain-sparing Easyplate chain guide that offers the choice of operation in the standard installation position or as a climbing hoist without conversion.
The UPstage is available in both DC (direct control 400 V AC) and RC (remote control/ low-voltage 24 V DC) versions and is supplied CEcompliant, tested, and ready for operation.
The chain hoist is designed for operation with Movecat phase-changing controllers in accordance with DIN 60204-32 and EN 13849-1 and when used accordingly is certified as CE compliant provided the instructions set out in the user manual are adhered to. A UVV factory inspection by a specialist prior to first use in mobile applications and the VDE 0701/0702 first inspection are also included.
The UPstage chain hoist is recommended for day-to-day rigging use when building up and dismantling stage, concert and studio sets in the touring business as well as in the theatrical, studio, multifunction hall and trade fair sectors.
