Fire Department Upgrade

We were awarded the opportunity to upgrade a very old crane in a fire department service building in a major city. The overhead crane was from an era when cranes were operated from the ground by pulling a rope for each direction of operation. There were six ropes, each having its own handle and each controlling a different movement: up, down, north, south, east and west.

We provided new inverter controls for all motions, added a festoon and traveling pushbutton station and manual and magnetic disconnects. This made the crane safer and easier to operate. Needless to say, the fire department personnel were thrilled with their “new” crane.
