How to Set-up Standard Electric Powered Vacuum Lifters
Set-up Requires Bringing Electrical Power to the Lifter and then Reviewing Some Common Points
Typical North American Electricity Requirements:
|Powered Vacuum Generators|
Our full line of powered vacuum generators come with a variety of electrical specifications. All important electrical information is located on the vacuum generators individual web page.
|Transformers should be Remote Mounted|
**Other Voltages / Phases Available: Generators can be supplied in the following voltages by adding a transformer: 208V, 220V, 230V, 380V, 440V, 460V, 480V, 575V (consult factory for more information). All generator motors with a voltage of 120V or less use fuses or circuit breakers for protection. Motors and other devices that use more than 200V are fused and/or use thermal overload with a contactor.
Note: All ANVER electrical components, controls and wiring follow international standards: UL, CSA, NFPA, NEC. It is the user’s responsibility to comply to all additional local electrical codes as they pertain to the installation.
Important: The ASME B30.20 Regulations which are the American Standard ASME website States this about “(i) Power Disconnects.
(1) Hoisting Equipment using an externally powered vacuum lifter shall have a separate vacuum lifter circuit switch of the enclosed type with provision for locking, flagging, or tagging in the open (off) position. The vacuum lifter disconnect switch shall be connected on the line side (power supply side) of the hoisting equipment disconnect switch. (2) Disconnects are not required on externally powered vacuum lifters operating a 120 VAC single phase power source.”
To estimate voltage drop by wire size, material, voltage, phase, distance and amp draw, we recommend this calculator.
