Wright® Speedway® - The New Century Series® Wire Rope Hoists
1 To  5 Ton Capacity

Standard Features

Basic Controls
Choose single or two speed. Magnetic reversing contactors, both mechanically and electrically interlocked. 115V control circuit. Meets NEC requirements. NEMA Type 3R enclosure. Lightweight, durable, and easily accessible.

Motor Brake
Proven in millions of hours of in-service operation, the original Wright A-C magnet-actuated disc brake delivers rapid stops with virtually no hook drift. Rated a minimum of 150% of full load motor torque.

The New Century Series utilizes a U.S. manufactured motor. 30-minute duty, Class F insulation. Standard single speed motor is provided for 200V, 230V/460V or 575V 3 phase, 60 hertz power supplies. Motor thermostats are standard - providing both running and overcurrent protection.

Has machined grooves and large flanges for smooth winding and extended rope life. At least two full turns of rope remain on the drum at the lowest hook position.

Limit Switch
A gravity type upper hook travel limit switch comes equipped with an automatic momentary lowering circuit.

Gears operate in the largest oil reservoir in the industry and are enclosed in a rugged fluted aluminum alloy housing to provide rapid heat dissipation. Oil sight gauge on the housing cover permits quick visual inspection.

Mechanical Load Brake
Automatic Weston-Type multiple disc brake. It can hold a full capacity load independent of the motor brake and assures that the load does not accelerate while being lowered. Adjustment is not required.

Gear Train
Quiet, helical and spur gearing. All gears are machine cut, case-hardened alloy steel with shock-resistant ductile cores. Designed to AGMA standards.

Bearings - Spider Retainer
Precision heavy-duty ball bearings support all shafts. Bearings at outboard end of shafts are held in place by a heavy-duty Spider Retainer. This allows removal of Gear Housing Cover for inspection (after draining oil). All internal parts remain in place and can be operated for inspection.

Wire Rope
Pre-formed wire rope, of hoisting service construction, has swaged fittings on both ends for ease of replacement if necessary.

Load Block - Hook
Drop forged heat-treated steel hook swivels 360° on a shielded roller thrust bearing and comes equipped with a spring latch. Work can be performed on the load block without removing wire rope from drum. Steel sheaves are standard. 

Overload Cutoff

Protects load, hoist and operator by interrupting raising circuit when hoist senses a damaging overload. When lifting circuit is interrupted, the lowering circuit remains intact to allow the load to be lowered and removed. After the overload is removed the lifting circuit is automatically restored. Overload Cutoff is accessible for field adjustments.
