Wire rope drum hoist system is a compact solution for lighting bars at small to medium venues with low ceiling. Compared to chain motors these hoists lift with steel wire ropes instead of bulky chains, with no hooks, nor chain bags. As result, this system can achieve extra trim height compared to chain hoist systems.
These hoists are also very cost effective compared to chain motors. They require 240V power instead of 415V 3 phase power. They come with safety features such as breaking and limit switches. Multiple hoists can be programmed to work in a group and controlled via a wall mount controller plus a wireless pickle just like the chain motor system.
Each of these hoist has SWL of 100-200Kg which is usually more than enough for such applications.
