Balancers

Pneumatic Balancers

B Balancers

"B" series balancers come standard with NO CONTROLS, and are designed for integration with an end effector or handling device that includes a control package.

BA Balancers

"BA" series balancers have no pendant controls and are used for single load suspending applications either at a fixed height or where both hands are used to manually raise, lower and position or “Float” a load. The operator experiences virtually no part weight or resistance in manipulating the load.

The “BA” controller is a self-relieving regulator that automatically adds or exhausts air to raise or lower (float) the load to the desired height where it will remain suspended. The regulator can also be adjusted to slowly raise a load up and out of an operators way.

The primary application for the "BA" series balancer is for suspending and/or positioning constant weight items.

EA Balancers

"EA" series balancers are used for handling multiple (up to 3) loads within a 40 lb (18.1 kg) weight range without the need to adjust the controls.

When the pendant is in the LO- and UN-LOAD position, balancer air pressure is released to allow the lighter loads to be in balance. When the pendant is in the HI-LOAD position, no pressure is released, and the heaviest load can be balanced.

The "EA" series balancers are ideally suited for applications where up to 3 load sizes are frequently lifted, and operator hands-on the part is required. The UN-LOAD position is also often used for handling device balancing (loaded/unloaded).

ZA Balancers

“ZA” series balancer is the most common, and is designed for high speed, precision handling of variable weight loads. Up/down movement is accomplished through the use of an ergonomically designed pendant with low-effort, color coded thumb levers.
After positioning the load with the pendant control, the unit defaults into a “Float” mode that allows the operator up to 18 in (457 mm) to manually adjust the load for final positioning.

Intelligent Lifting Devices

Basic Unit - No controls

The InteLIFT® Basic unit comes with no controls and is designed to be integrated with a Handling Device and operated with the Handling Device's control package.

Straight Cable Pendant Control Unit

Ingersoll Rand "IS" series InteLIFT® balancers come equipped with a 12 ft (3.7 m) straight electronic control cable, and a pendant handle that contains a rocker switch for quick up/down load positioning. Float mode is active at the touch of a button.

Coiled Pendant Control Unit

Ingersoll Rand "IA" series InteLIFT® balancers come equipped with a 12 ft (3.7 m) twin-bonded pre-coil cable including air hose and electronic control cable. The pendant handle contains a rocker switch for quick up/down load positioning. Float mode is active at the touch of a button.

Force Sensing Control Unit

The InteLIFT® "IC" series balancers come standard with a force-sensing load cell that converts small levels of operator force into up/down movement through the full lifting range, without the need for up/down pendant controls.
These models also come equipped with a 12 ft (3.7 m) twin-bonded pre-coil cable including air hose and electronic control hose.
