The motor and brake connections are made through a Harting or similar 24B locking connector. The Smart Chain Hoist includes a latching hood to ensure the connection is maintained even under the stresses of production use. Below is the pinout of the connector and cable.
All encoder and limit signals are transmitted through the Signal cable with Harting or similar 6B locking connectors. The Smart Chain Hoist includes a latching hood to ensure the signal connection is maintained even under production conditions. Below, is the pinout of the signal connector.
