Electric hoists are devices used to lift, lower, or suspend loads using chains wrapped on a lift-wheel. They generally consist of a shell that houses the electric motor, lift-wheel, and gear assemblies that control the load chain. The load chain is typically fitted with a hook with a safety latch for securing a particular load. They also have a pendant control for switching the load chain into an upward or downward direction. Single-phase electric hoists are normally used for construction, workshops, or residential use while three-phase hoists are used in industrial applications dealing with heavier loads.
