Hoist Side Pull Detector for cable diameter .512"-.630" (13mm-16mm). One larger size and one smaller size is available. Standard use is for side pull trip and/or side pull alarm in the line of the hoist drum. It is recommended to use the TAC Controller with the HSPD which includes timers and also has outputs for alarms and lights. The TAC controller gives adjustable time delays before the unit trips. Great system to solve a difficult hoist use problems.
Overhead cranes are designed to lift objects vertically. A side pull always occurs when the hoist lifts something that has not been placed directly underneath it.
Side pull can cause violent and hazardous load swing, hoist components such as the rope guide or drum might get damaged, or in the worst case load ropes may snap. Preventing side pull will help make your operations faster and safer.
The rope guide is protected and all limits remain operative preventing over winding and unwinding of rope.
It is the installers responsibility to determine how to mount the device on the various hoist types.
MAINTENANCE COSTS DECREASED WITH SIDE PULL DETECTION AND PREVENTION. The HSPD unit is not meant for use as a personal safety device.
