Thomson LC1600 Lifting Columns

Thomson LC1600 Lifting Columns

Thomson's new LC1600 Lifting Column is an ideal linear motion solution for applications requiring light weight and a low noise factor.

The two-piece extrusion with 1600 N loading capacity is optimal for cost-sensitive applications where extension-to-retraction ratios are not as critical.

LC1600 features Thomson's Whispertrak™ drive technology, resulting in an extremely quiet and smooth operation.

Electronic limit switches and mid-stroke protection also work to protect your valuable application and the surrounding environment. 

The LC1600 units come standard with pre-drilled mounting holes for easy installation.  Once installed, zero mainenance is required.

Controls

DCG Control Series

DCG Control Series

  • Controls available for single lifting column operation or synchronous operation of two lifting columns equipped with encoders
  • Small and light weight control operated via a control pendant (ordered separately)
  • Built in Electronic Limit Switches (ELS) stop the lifting column automatically at end of stroke or mid stroke stall
  • No wiring is necessary to the control as all connections are done through plugs

* Control will shut off if duty cycle is exceeded and automatically reset when cooled off.
** DCG-254 monitors the encoder pulses and not the motor currents. If the pulses arrive too slowly or not at all it will stop the motion of the lifting column.
