Kito EQS Electric Chain Hoist – Single Phase

Power from the wall socket.

Anywhere a 240-volt connection is available this KITO EQS Electric Chain Hoist (single phase model) can be used immediately. The EQS offers in comparison to KITO’s ER2 Electric Hoist, a considerable reduction in the net weight by 23%. With two lifting capacities 500 kg and 1,000 kg the EQS can be used to perform a wide range of commonplace tasks.


The EQ product line is targeted at moderate and heavy duty users, with several unique design features that benefit these customer segments.

The EQS includes an inverter technology that provides an industry-first “light-load high-speed” function. When the EQ inverter senses that the load is less than 30% of the hoist’s WLL, the hoists speed automatically increases to 1.3 times faster. As a result, users can expect the production cycle to improve up to 115% of standard. This unique operating characteristic makes it an ideal solution for assembly line, work station, and repetitive operating applications.
As well the inverter provides these benefits: cushioned and adjustable speed for ultimate load control as well as electronic thermal and overload protection. The inverter and its unique software also eliminate several wear items typically used in conventional hoists, including a transformer, contactor, or brake coil.
The hoist employs a highly durable pull-rotor brake system, proven reliable in past KITO products. Up to two million brake cycles can be expected from the system.
Product advantages:
  • Power from the wall socket.
  • Compact hook end approach
  • High productivity feature: 130% speed at less than 30 % WLL
  • Low maintenance due to: no transformer, no magnetic contactor, no brake contactor, no brake coil


  • Frequency inverter as standard: smooth and precise load control, adjustable speed control (standard speed ratio 6:1)
  • Single Phase 240V 50Hz, the hoist can be usied where no 3-phase power is available
  • Electronic overload limiter via frequency inverter
  • Extremely robust Aluminium die-cast body: small, light, rugged
