It “locks” the downward travel in a free-fall situation, which occurs due to a hydraulic system failure, other than on the cylinders of the lift table. The Velocity Fuse monitors the flow rate of the hydraulic fluid out of the cylinder and “locks” if it exceeds the allowable rate. For lighter loads, a flow rate high enough to “lock” may not develop. In these cases, the downward travel will be at a controlled speed.Contact your Pentalift Sales Representative for more information.

This type of electric motor radiates its excess heat through the body of the motor. It is commonly built with special high temperature insulation. TEFC stands for Totally Enclosed, Fan-Cooled Electric Motor. These are constructed with a small fan on the rear shaft covered by housing. The fan is used to assist in cooling the electric motor.
