Drivecon is pleased to introduce LoadLock, a free feature now available on all Drivecon closed loop hoist inverters.
LoadLock is the industrys first snag load prevention feature that proactively minimizes the effects of operator induced shock loading. In any hoisting application the operator is tasked with slowly raising a load off of the ground. Given this is dependent on the individual operator and can frequently cause shock loading, this results in cumulative fatigue on the crane's mechanical and structural components. By activating the LoadLock feature, the inverter will constantly monitor for a rapid increase in torque (snag load) and if sensed LoadLock will automatically decrease the hoist speed until the torque stabilizes and/or load is off of the ground. Once stabilized the speed will resume to the original speed requested by the operator. The end result is optimized cycle time and minimized impact to the crane's traditional wear items. This feature can be especially helpful with cranes used in delicate lifting applications and process duty enthronements.
