Would you like this product installed in an electrical enclosure or control panel?

Do you have a no-load-brake style hoist? Use the comparable MV-Ultra™ (Closed-Loop) model instead.

Don’t need the HOIST version of this unit? View the traverse MX-Ultra™ models.

Would your application benefit from remote (including wireless) programming and/or data logging capabilities? Or will your project have several Ultra™ VFDs that you would like to control with just one interface?

If you are interested in any (or all!) of these features, let us know when you request your quote and we can provide you with options!
