Drives, Controls & Software for Crane
Being one of the premier Magnetek modernization distributors
has the advantage of our being involved directly with
hardware and software solutions provided by Magnetek for
overhead crane and hoist applications. Engineered Lifting
Systems has furnished Magnetek cataloged and non-cataloged
(custom) equipment and engineering to solve a host of
overhead crane requirements.
Whether you want to improve your crane's reliability by
upgrading to Magnetek’s VG+ and G+ series of variable
frequency drives, all the way down to a replacement
pushbutton station for an electric chain hoist you will find
Magnetek’s products a perfect fit! This page is dedicated to
some of the projects Engineered Lifting Systems has
performed using Magnetek products, and other products and
services that are available.
These controls are the modernization panels for a Class E
clamshell crane used outdoors in the Midwest 365 days a
year. The hoist drives feature bucket control custom
software, and all controls in a NEMA 4 enclosure with
thermostat and heaters
Magnetek Custom Software brochure.
When your existing controls fail, save some time and
money and buy your Magnetek Controls “pre-wired” on a back
plate that drops-in your old enclosure. The VG+ drive
replaced a Drivecon hoist drive that had failed on a 40 hp
hoist application. Original conduit and wiring was re-used.
Complete Magnetek Panel supplied for a Class D cab
operated (telePendant radio for maintenance use) crane with
twin trolley/hoists. VG+ Hoist drives feature Magnetek Drive
Synchronization Software to allow high speed lifting with
unequal loads. See Custom Software Link above for more
Magnetek DC Magnet Control
MagnePulse is here and offers an alternative to old DC
Based on Magnetek’s highly successful OmniPulse control
for DC cranes, this control has digital of the magnet’s
“repel” circuit, stepped current for programmed lifts,
diagnostics and Impulse Link 4.1 wireless compatible. See
the brochure below for more information, or contact
Engineered Lifting Systems.
Remember to think of upgrading your cranes before replacing
them! In the below newsletter from Magnetek they give an
overview of many possibilities for modernizing cranes and

Lifting Systems has performed making these cranes more
efficient and reliable.
Don’t forget Magnetek has gone green! Two of the above
projects gave the customer’s the ability to put the current
in deceleration back on the grid rather than dynamic braking
resistors. Don’t throw away that old power, reuse it!
