Internal Load Sensing Technology

Taking Safety in Automation to the Highest Level

When it comes to safety in the entertainment industry, Columbus McKinnon is committed to developing products that keep riggers, performers and event goers safe. Our new internal load cell technology, available on the CM-ET family of Lodestar hoists, gives you the power to recognize safety issues before they occur, especially in automation applications where hoists are used in tandem.
FEATURES & BENEFITS

SEAMLESS INTEGRATION

Unlike the competition, CM-ETs load cell technology is built right into the hoist, protecting it from damage and wear. Headroom and dimensions of the hoist remain the same as the standard offering, eliminating the need for new road cases.

ACCURATE & RELIABLE

Internal load cell provides accuracy of ± 2% FSO (full scale output).

VERSATILE CONNECTIVITY

Easily connects to existing controllers in the field, regardless of make or manufacturer, via internally mounted circuit board assembly (CBA) designed to prevent wiring mistakes.

 

PROVEN TECHNOLOGY

Fully field tested by entertainment-industry professionals.

PATENT PENDING

AVAILABLE AS OPTIONAL FEATURE OR FIELD-READY RETROFIT KIT

CM-ET internal load cell technology is currently available in field-ready retrofit kits for CM-ET Classic and NH single-reeved hoist models J, JJ, L & LL and NH single-reeved hoist models B, C & F. Coming soon, this technology will be available for the following CM-ET hoist models: B, C & F for Classic retrofit kits and as an optional feature when ordering. (Note. CM-ET NH and Classic Lodestar units will retain IP66 rating with added load cell technology.)
