Universal pendant control

Engineered for operator comfort, the CM Rocket delivers precision control and accuracy. Compared to traditional straight-grip and push-button configurations, the new pendant control’s rocker switch and comfort-fit design give operators ultimate load command while reducing hand strain and fatigue—allowing for safer and more efficient operation of hoists and industrial equipment with momentary operation. The switch’s wide shape, along with rugged, no-slip directional indicators, allows for easy operation with or without gloves.

The CM Rocket’s curved, balanced shape fits comfortably in the palm of the hand, requiring minimal wrist flexion for operation. A ribbed grip helps ensure the operator maintains a secure and comfortable hold in all environments. The pendant is an option for leading Columbus McKinnon hoists, including the new CM ShopStar VS variable speed electric chain model, and can be configured as an aftermarket product for momentary operation of conveyors, lift elevators, mill drives, actuators and winches. The CM Rocket is available in single speed, single speed with emergency stop, two-speed, and two-speed with emergency stop versions. — Columbus McKinnon Corp., Channel Services, 800/888-0985; www.cmworks.com
