apexDRIVE V2

Our state of the art variable speed chain hoist control has evolved. May we present the apexDRIVE v2, built to comply with the latest safety directives and compatible with both Kinesys and TAIT automation control.


The apexDRIVE v2 works with all apexHOIST models. The drive is compatible with all existing Kinesys and TAIT software which allows for integration into existing systems.

The on-board safety features mean that a custom power distribution is not required.

The drive features a touchscreen display for feedback and diagnostics, manual controls on the front panel for ease of use, and complies with DGUV 17 (BGV C1) and EN17206. The drive has the ability to daisy-chain power between drives using a Ceeform cable.
