Hercules® Heavy Lifter Suspension Systems
Our Heavy Lifter Hercules® Overhead Suspension System, is a new standard in durability & flexibility, to meet the needs of all of today's Diagnostic & Interventional Lab Environments, and there are Hercules® Overhead Systems designed to operate safely in MRI Enviroments as well.
Each Heavy Lifter Hercules® Counterpoised Arm (OSP-11 & OSP-12) has a dynamic load lifting range that is adjustable from 4 to 45 kg (8.8 to 99 lbs). That's delicate enough to handle a Procedure Lamp & Heavy enough to lift a 3 over 3 LCD array...
Heavy Lifter Hercules® Overhead Suspension Systems are precision machined from High Strength Aircraft Grade Aluminum Alloy that is stronger than steel of equal weight utilizing Stainless Steel at critical articulation and wear points. There are no cold welds or weak points to fail in our UL Validated and Certified Hercules® Overhead Systems.
Hercules® Overhead Suspension Systems can be configured with one or two heavy lifting arms (up to 45 kg or 99 lbs) and one Hercules® Medium lifter arm (up to 21 kg or 46 lbs). The Medium lifter is designed with internal wiring for powering examination and surgical lamps and other lightweight devices. That is, up to a total of 3 counterpoised lifting arms all capable of rotating 360 degrees about a central axis.
Internalized Wiring, Fiber Optics, etc, Easily Installable In the Field
Our Hercules® OSP-12 articulating arm provides a large internal wiring chase traveling from device to ceiling for entirely concealed wiring. See photo left & Illustration of Wiring Path, in Red below. The wiring chase provides easy access so wiring can be done for any device in the field at the time of installation or later. The chase in the suspension arm is 2.25 inches wide by 0.75 inches high allowing for a variety of internal cabling needs.
Hercules® Overhead Systems can be fixed mounted in one ceiling location or track mounted. Two track sizes are available, depending on overall load. Custom track lengths are available to suit a wide variety of needs, available in both conventional and MRI-Safe® Models
