• Battery – Uses a 48V lithium-ion battery with a BMS (Battery Management System) to preserve its useful life. Certified IP54
• Brake – Braking system controls descent and provides workers protection against free-falls. The encapsulating jaw cover protects fingers and clothing from catching in the winch
• Durability – Stainless steel load-carrying gears and pins provide strength and durability. Sealed gearbox and high-load ball bearings reduce friction under load, are corrosion resistant, and do not require lubrication
• Speed Control – Operates using a fail-safe dead man’s switch to control ascent speed, up to 14 m/min (45.9 ft/min)
• Ergonomic design – Designed to stay in an upright position, conserving operator energy by eliminating the constant adjustments needed to maintain work position
• Maximum Rated Load (MRL) – Max rated load is 300 kg (661 lb)
• Maximum Ascent Speed – 14 m/min (45.9 ft/min)
• Certification – Certified to EN13157:2009 (Machinery Directive Harmonized Standard) and independently verified by Bureau Veritas
