The Motion Power Controllers of the Lite series in direct control 400 V AC or remote control 24 V DC version represent an extension to the practice-proven Movecat kinetic controller series. They were designed as simple stand-alone solutions for small rigging applications but without any compromises being made in terms of either ergonomics or safety.
They unite in a robust 3U or else 5U metal housing all the relevant components for the safe control of two to eight asynchronous, three-phase drives such as the electric chain hoists of the Movecat Eco, Plus, Compact, Ecolite, Plus-C and Pluslite series.
Per controller, two to eight hoists or drives can be operated directly without any additional controllers or ancillary devices in an operationally secure and userproof fashion.
Run direction, raising and lowering are selected using robust rotary controls and the run activated using a central GO button. All safety elements include a latching Emergency OFF button, phase malfunction, phase sequence and low voltage supervision, and four motor protection switches individually adjustable to each motor.
All the safety elements are arranged sequentially to form a ‘safety chain’, so that an operating failure leads automatically to all four drives coming safely to a halt. The operating status is indicated by means of two signal elements.
A motor plug-in connector CEE 16 A 4-pin, or a multipin connector can be directly inserted at rear. The controllers of the Lite series are, all in all, simple and intuitive to use in accordance with the ‚plug and lift‘ principle. Different versions of the MPC LD8 controller in DC or RC versions are available with motors ranging from 0.25 to 3.0 kW in power.
The controllers comply with the EN 60204-32 and EN 13849-1 standards as well as VDE 0113 and are suitable for the control of lifting gear in accordance with the guidelines set out in BGV D8 and igvw SQ P2 D8 Plus.
The MPC 4LD8 controller is recommended for use with the Eco, Ecolite, Compact, Plus, Plus-C and Pluslite hoists for small professional rigging applications in the trade fair, events, studio and touring sectors.
