SECTION I – GENERAL DESCRIPTION

1-1.GENERAL. Yale “Global King” electric hoists are wire rope and drum type hoists that are manufactured with an integral trolley. These hoists are all low headroom models with the drum and upper block (or dead-end anchor depending on the reeving type) on opposite sides of the beam suspending the trolley. There are two basic frame sizes each with two standard lifts: the “B” Frame handles capacities up to 5 tonne; and the “C” Frame handles capacities up to 10 tonne. The “B” Frame has an integral trolley with two different flange width ranges available: 4-5/8” through 14” or 14-1/8” through 20” wide with a maximum flange thickness of 1-3/4”. The “C” Frame integral trolley has a flange range of 4 5/8” through 20” with a maximum flange thickness of 2”. The hoist motor is 2-speed with a 6:1 ratio between high and low speeds as standard. The Motor Driven trolley has two available speeds with 1- speed, 2-speed, or Variable Frequency control.

Throughout this manual you will see references to the “B” or “C” frame hoists. If you are unsure about which frame size you have, see Section IV, Paragraph 4-2 for a simple gearcase measurement to easily determine the size of your hoist.

1-2.BASIC CONSTRUCTION. Yale “Global King” hoists consist of a rugged steel frame which houses a lifting drum and serves as the suspension for carrying the entire hoist load. An aluminum gearcase, attached to one end of the drum frame, houses a triple-reduction gear train. The first two reductions are helical with the third being spur. Attached to the gearcase is a 2-speed hoisting motor with a 6:1 ratio between the high and low speeds. A 200% torque DC motor brake is attached to the motor. A single NEMA 4/12 control enclosure contains both the hoist and trolley electrical system controls. Hoisting cable and a covered lower block assembly are used for lifting loads. A rotary geared limit switch is used to limit travel both up and down. A secondary block operated limit switch is used to limit the travel of the lower block when raising. A push button control station (purchased separately) for operating the hoist is suspended on a wire strain cable attached to the hoist.

SECTION II – INSTALLATION

WARNING

Only qualified personnel properly supervised shall mount the hoist and trolley on the monorail and perform final pre-operation inspection.

2-1.GENERAL. Yale “Global King” electric hoists are lubricated and tested before being shipped from the factory. To place a hoist in service, adjust appropriately for the beam flange width (Paragraph 2-2), connect to electrical service (Paragraph 2-3) and perform pre-operation tests and checks (Paragraph 2-4).

WARNING

Working in or near exposed energized electrical equipment presents the danger of electric shock.

TO AVOID INJURY:

DISCONNECT POWER AND IMPLEMENT LOCKOUT/TAGOUT PROCEDURE BEFORE REMOVING COVER OR SERVICING THIS EQUIPMENT.

2-2.SUSPENDING HOIST.

FIGURE 2-1. Trolley Wheel Spacing.

a)OPEN-END BEAM: If the trolley can be installed directly from the end of the supporting beam, adjust the spacing between the trolley wheel flanges to be 3/16”-1/4” greater than the exact width of the beam flange (See Figure 2-1). Before adjusting the width of the trolley frame be sure to loosen the clamp collar nearest the traverse drive on the hex traverse drive shaft. Also, the electrical conduit/cable must not be constrained when attempting to adjust the trolley sides in or out.

NOTICE

Loosen all electrical cable or conduit attached to the frame and alignment bars before adjusting trolley width. Ensure that the electrical cable is not stretched, pinched, twisted or otherwise damaged when adjusting trolley width.

4

The trolley width shall be adjusted by loosening the jam nuts on the traverse drive side of the threaded rods at each end of the hoist. If necessary, lubricate the frame alignment bars with penetrating oil before attempting to adjust trolley width. The trolley side may then be pushed or driven into position by turning the adjusting nuts on the treaded rods. Adjust nuts on each side of the hoist simultaneously to avoid binding. After adjusting the trolley to the proper width, tighten all adjusting nuts and the clamp collar, and re-secure the electrical conduit/cable. Verify that the geared wheels mesh properly with the traverse drive pinions. Using proper equipment, carefully lift the trolley and hoist and install on the end of the beam. Lubricate the wheel gear and pinion (WG, Section IV, Paragraph 4-3).

b)CLOSED-END BEAM: For trolleys which are to be mounted along the span of a beam not having open ends, the trolley must be adjusted in the same manner as described above to a width that allows clearance between the axles and the beam flange. Using proper lifting equipment, the trolley and hoist must then be lifted to the beam where it is to be installed. Once in position, adjust the spacing between the trolley wheel flanges to be 3/16”-1/4”” greater than the exact width of the beam flange (See Figure 2-1). After tightening all adjusting bolts, the clamp collar, and all electrical conduit/cable clamps, carefully set the trolley on the beam. Lubricate the wheel gear and pinion (WG, Section IV, Paragraph 4-3).

2-3.CONNECTING HOIST TO ELECTRICAL SERVICE. Electrical service to the hoist may be power cable or a guarded system having sliding shoe or wheel type collectors.

WARNING

Be certain that electrical power supply is OFF and locked in the open position before attempting any electrical connections to the hoist. This equipment must be effectively grounded according to the National Electric Code ANSI/NFPA 70, or other applicable codes. If the grounding method used is through the trolley wheels, then each section of track must be grounded by metal-to-metal connection to the building ground. Certain environments may prevent proper grounding by this means. In this case a separate grounding conductor should be provided.

a)Follow ANSI/NFPA 70, state, and local electrical codes including the grounding provisions thereof when providing electrical service to the hoist.

b)Make electrical connections using the appropriate wiring diagrams furnished with the hoist. All electrical connections, including connections to collectors or power cord shall be made only by qualified journeyman electricians.

CAUTION

Power supply to hoist and trolley must be the same voltage, frequency, and phase that are specified on the hoist and trolley nameplate.

2-4. PRE-OPERATION CHECKS.

a)Check Oil Level. (Figure 2-1) The gearcase has been filled with oil to the proper level. However this should be re-checked before operating the hoist.

Check oil level by removing the plug indicated in Figure 2-1. When properly filled, oil should be level with the bottom of the tapped hole. Fill to this level with oil as specified in Paragraph 4-2.e.

b)Check Push Button Operation and Phasing.

To properly check the phase of the hoist, follow these steps:

(1)With “POWER OFF” operate all the push buttons and determine that they do not bind or stick in any position.

WARNING

If any push button binds or sticks in any position – DO NOT TURN POWER ON – determine the cause and correct the malfunction before operating.

(2) Connect hoist to power source.

WARNING

On three phase hoists it is possible to have “Reverse Phasing” causing the block to lower when the “UP” button is depressed. When this condition exists the automatic limit switch is inoperative and hoist operation will be dangerous.

5

(3)Operate “UP” button briefly to determine direction of hook travel.

(4)If hook raises when “UP” button is depressed, phasing is correct.

(5)If hook lowers when “UP” button is depressed, hoist is “Reverse Phased.”

TURN AND LOCK POWER OFF and check the pushbutton wiring. If the pushbutton was wired properly, correct the problem by interchanging any two leads at power source connection. Do not change internal wiring of hoist.

c)Check Limit Switch Operation.

(1)A block operated upper limit stop is furnished as standard equipment on all Yale “Global King” hoists. This limit stop is factory set to stop the lower block at the safest high position, guarding against over travel and possible damage to hoist. No adjustment can be made. However, the hoist should be tested by jogging the lower block against the limit weight to be sure the limit switch is functioning properly. When lower block lifts the limit weight, the hoist will automatically stop. If lower block coasts through the limit switch when lifting a reversing switch will automatically close and reverse direction of motion to lowering.

WARNING

Damage to the hoist, a dropped load, and injury may result if limit switches fail due to improper use.

TO AVOID INJURY:

UNDER NORMAL OPERATING CONDITIONS, STOP HOIST TRAVEL BEFORE ENGAGING LIMIT SWITCHES. LIMIT SWITCHES ARE SAFETY DEVICES AND SHOULD NOT BE USED AS NORMAL OPERATING CONTROL.

WARNING

Some hoists may be shipped with the electrical controls loose (disconnected) and will not have the upper and lower limit switches connected. DO NOT OPERATE HOIST UNTIL LIMIT SWITCHES ARE PROPERLY CONNECTED AND ADJUSTED. Failure to do so may allow hoist to be operated beyond proper travel limits, which can cause load to drop, resulting in damage to equipment or injury.

(2)A geared rotary type upper and lower limit switch is also provided as standard. This switch is adjustable and although roughly preset by the factory, it should be adjusted at time of installation to the desired high and low limits of lower block travel. Refer to SECTION VII, Paragraph 7-3.

d)Check Lower Block and Hoisting Cable. Depress “DOWN” push button and run lower block to its lowest position. No less than two wraps shall remain on the drum with the loaded hook in its lowest position. Also check to see that the lower block and rope do not twist excessively. If it does twist to the extent that two ropes rub against each other, disengage the swaged rope end from the frame anchor and twist the rope four or five turns in a direction opposite to that which the block turns. Reconnect rope to the frame anchor, holding firmly to eliminate rope twisting back to its original position. Operate hoist up and down a few times. If lower block still rotates excessively repeat process until twisting is corrected.

e)Lubricate Hoisting Cable. For longer cable life, it is recommended that the cable be lubricated at time of installation by applying a heavy coating of lubricant CL (Paragraph 4-7) as outlined in SECTION IV, Paragraph 4-3.

f)When first using the hoist and trolley, operate with lighter loads through full travel before applying maximum load.

SECTION III – OPERATION

3-1.GENERAL. Operation of Yale “Global King” hoists is controlled by a convenient pendant push button station. With it, the hoist can be controlled to give fast lifting and lowering; or controlled to lift or lower the load in small increments, providing accurate spotting. The push button station has a built-in interlock to prevent depressing opposing buttons simultaneously.

When first using the hoist, break in by operating under lighter loads to full travel before applying maximum load.

3-2.PUSH BUTTON OPERATION.

a)Depress push button marked “UP” to raise load.

b)Depress push button marked “DOWN” to lower load.

c)Depress push button marked “RIGHT” to traverse one direction.

6

d)Depress push button marked “LEFT” to traverse in the opposite direction.

CAUTION

Excessive “jogging” will cause premature burning of contact tips, motor overheating, and premature brake wear.

e)On two-speed hoist or trolley motions, partial depression of a button operates hoist or trolley at slow speed; depressing button completely operates hoist or trolley at full speed.

3-3.OPERATING PRECAUTIONS. Safe operation of an overhead hoist is the operator’s responsibility. Listed below are some basic rules that can make an operator aware of dangerous practices to avoid and precautions to take for his own safety and the safety of others. Observance of these rules in addition to frequent examinations and periodic inspection of the equipment may save injury to personnel and damage to equipment.

WARNING

Equipment covered herein is not designed or suitable as a power source for lifting or lowering persons.

a)DO read ASME B30.16 Safety Standard for Overhead Hoists and the Operation, Service and Parts Manual.

b)DO be familiar with hoist operating controls, procedures, and warnings.

oo)DO NOT operate hoists unless hook moves in the same direction as indicated on the push button. If opposite direction occurs, see pre-operation checks, Section II Paragraph 2-4.b.

pp)DO NOT operate hoist unless limit switch is operating properly.

doubt of the supporting structure’s strength, consult a structural engineer.

WARNING

DO NOT operate hoist with the hoisting rope out of the drum grooves. Such operation may result in damage to the rope and/or the rope breaking. This may result in dropping the load that can cause damage to equipment and injury to operator or other personnel. Hoist rope will remain in the drum grooves during operation under normal operating conditions, however, slack or kinked rope, excessive side pulls, swinging or jerking of load, or similar abuse, may cause the rope to leave the grooves.

vv)DO NOT use hoist in location that will not allow operator movement to be free of the load.

ww)DO, when starting to lift, move the load a few inches at which time the hoist should be checked for proper load holding action. The operation shall be continued only after the operator is assured that the hoist is operating properly and that the load is supported in the center of the base/bowl/saddle of the hook.

xx)DO Observe recommended inspection and maintenance procedures.

yy)DO Use common sense and best judgment whenever operating a hoist.

SECTION IV – LUBRICATION

qq)DO avoid operating hoist when hook is not 4-1.GENERAL. The lubrication services outlined in

centered under hoist. Avoid side pulls and swinging of load or load hook when traveling hoist.

rr)DO operate hoist within recommended duty cycle and do not “jog” unnecessarily.

ss)DO conduct regular visual inspections for signs of damage and wear.

tt)DO NOT operate hoist with hooks that have opened up. See Section V, Paragraph 5-2.f.

uu)DO provide supporting structure that has an appropriate design factor based on the load rating and dead weight of the hoist. If in

Paragraphs 4-3 thru 4-6 should be performed before initial operation of the hoist. The lubrication services outlined in Paragraphs 4-2 thru 4-6 should be performed at regular intervals at least every six (6) months, coinciding with spring and fall seasons is recommended. The reason for this is that on hoists installed outside or in unheated areas a “cold test” oil is required in such (below freezing) climates making seasonal changes necessary.

4-2. CHANGING GEARCASE OIL.

a)Add 5% solution of Mobilsol A (or equivalent) to the oil and run for a short time. This will clean components and hold particles in suspension for draining.

8

FIGURE 4-1. View of Hoist Showing Location of

Name Plates and Oil Plugs.

b)Remove oil drain plug from bottom of gearcase and drain oil out. Dispose of oil in accordance with local environmental codes.

WARNING

Avoid skin contact with Mobilsol A. In case of skin contact: dry wipe the skin, cleanse the area with a waterless hand cleaner and follow by washing thoroughly with soap and water.

e)Refill through filler hole to proper level (bottom of oil level plug hole) using GCOH (Paragraph 4-7). The amount of oil required depends on overall size of gearcase; two sizes are used for “Global King” hoists. To determine size and amount of oil to add, measure width of hoist gearcase (see Figure 4-2). The “B” Frame measures 11-3/4” and requires approximately 6 quarts of oil. The “C” Frame’s width is 14-1/2” and requires approximately12 quarts of oil.

4-3.LUBRICATION OF HOISTING CABLE. Hoists are shipped from the factory without an exterior coating of grease on hoisting cable. It is recommended, where conditions permit, that the cable be thoroughly coated at installation and kept well lubricated with CL (Paragraph 4-7).

4-4.LUBRICATION OF LIMIT SWITCH. Provide a light film of grease MPG (Paragraph 4-7) on bevel gear of rotary geared limit switch.

4-5.LUBRICATION OF GEARED TROLLEY WHEELS AND PINIONS. At installation and periodically apply grease WG (Paragraph 4-7) to the traverse drive pinions and the gears of the trolley wheels.

c)Reinstall drain plug.

d)Remove oil level plug from front of gearcase cover.

FIGURE 4-2. Gearcase Width Illustration.

4-6.LUBRICATION OF ROPE GUIDE

a)Maintenance. Once properly installed the following actions are required:

(1)Periodically re-grease with MPG (Paragraph 4-7) using the grease fitting provided (Figure 5-3, Item 6).

(2)Every 6 months the rope guide should be removed per Section V, Paragraph 5-5, cleaned and inspected. When the rope guide is reassembled, the rope guide should be thoroughly greased with MPG (Paragraph 4-7) and the hoist run up and down to lubricate both the drum and the wire rope.

SECTION V – INSPECTION AND PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE

5-1.GENERAL. All Yale “Global King” hoists are inspected and tested at the factory. Regular inservice inspection and preventative maintenance programs not only help reduce overall maintenance costs but may also prevent service shutdowns by forewarning of problems that could cause these shutdowns. Regular inspections, periodic minor adjustments, regular cleaning and lubrication and replacement of worn parts can help preserve good performance and operation of your hoist.

Many factors influence the inspection and preventative maintenance program required for your hoist. Frequency and severity of service and material handled, local environmental conditions and various applicable codes are some of the factors that the user must consider to adjust inspection and maintenance program outlined in this section to meet his specific conditions.

The inspection and maintenance services outlined in this section are considered minimum. Recommended in the schedule are minimum inspection and maintenance intervals based on average daily use in a normal environment. Average daily use is based on 1000 total operational hours per year maximum and intermittent operation of the hoist eight hours per day, five days per week with a maximum 50 percent “on” time and the average loading not exceeding 65 percent of rated load. For more details regarding hoist duty cycles, please reference ANSI/ASTM HST-4.

Environmental conditions in which the hoist operates are also important considerations for the user when adjusting hoist inspection and maintenance programs to local conditions. Frequency of inspection and maintenance must be increased if hoist is subjected to severe atmospheric

environmental conditions, such as corrosive vapors, extreme heat or cold, cement or dust and other airborne contaminants. The user should carefully consider all environmental conditions and adjust frequency and degree of maintenance for his local conditions. Consult the factory’s Field Service Department for advice regarding unusual environmental conditions.

Various codes also regulate inspection and maintenance programs. Attention must be given to applicable federal standards, OSHA regulations, national standards, state and local codes which may include mandatory rules relating to hoist inspection and maintenance. The user should become familiar with all applicable codes for his area and be guided accordingly.

Listed on the Recommended Inspection and Maintenance Schedule are inspection frequencies and requirements. Perform these inspections regularly as scheduled and additional inspections as may be required for activity, service, and environment of your hoist. The hoist operator must be responsible for determining the operating conditions and severity of service.

Inspection Schedule and Maintenance Report Form.

Shown on page 13 of this manual is a recommended Inspection Schedule and Maintenance Report form that lists various components of the hoist. The form also includes trolley components, runway components, and miscellaneous items. This form is suggested as a guide for written inspection reports. Inspections are recommended each month and should be performed thoroughly enough to inform the hoist user of deficiencies for any item listed. This form does not supersede the Inspection and Maintenance Schedule listed on page 12 of this manual but may be used to record scheduled inspection and maintenance services required.

11

The user should revise the inspection interval, add additional units or provide a similar form to suit particular conditions that may exist. However, written, dated and signed inspection reports should be maintained particularly on critical items such as hoist hooks, hoisting rope, sheaves, drums and brakes. Periodic review of old inspection reports can point out service life of hoist components, forecasting need for adjustment, repair or replacement of these components.

As a matter of expedience, appointed maintenance personnel inspecting hoist can also take care of minor adjustments, repairs and cleaning, where required. Note column on Inspection Schedule and Maintenance Report form headed Corrective Action and Notes. When corrective action is made during inspection, note condition of part or unit as inspected in appropriate Condition column with a check mark (`). Note “during inspection” corrective action taken and date in space provided. In this manner, items requiring further attention will be checked (`) without showing corrective action. This will advise the designated person responsible for hoist operation and safety, who reviews the reports that deficiencies exist. The designated person will check all deficiencies as listed and re-examine or otherwise determine whether they constitute a safety hazard.

WARNING

Deficiencies may be hazardous to personnel and equipment. Do not operate a hoist having deficiencies unless a designated qualified person has determined that these deficiencies DO NOT constitute a safety hazard.

Written, dated and signed inspection reports for many items are mandatory under OSHA regulations, and many state safety codes. It is strongly recommended that the Inspection Schedule and Maintenance Report, shown herein, be completed by a qualified person designated with the responsibility for hoist operation and safety or an inspector appointed by this person.

Inspection records can point out the service life of hoist components and help forecast the need for adjustments, repairs, and ordering of replacement parts. File and review these reports after each inspection.

WARNING

Do not operate a hoist having unusual vibrations, sounds, or with anything wrong or apparently wrong. Danger may be present that the hoist operator cannot see. Determine and correct the cause of unusual conditions and make certain hoist can be operated safely.

5-2.INSPECTION OF LOWER BLOCK.

a)Check lubrication of all parts. Also lubricate the shank of the hook that passes through the crosshead. If the thrust bearing is removed, apply MPG grease (Section IV, Para. 4-7).

b)Check each sheave to insure rope groove is smooth and free from burrs, or other surface defects.

c)Check each sheave for freedom of rotation; replace bearings if defective.

d)Make certain that the spring pin holding the hook nut to the hook is securely in position.

e)If hook is equipped with a hook latch or rotational lock, check to determine that they are in good operating condition.

f)Check throat opening of the hook. (Refer to Figure 5-2.) It is recommended that upon receipt of the hoist, a measurement be made and recorded of the hook throat opening. OSHA regulations require that the hook be replaced if the throat opening exceeds 15 percent of the original opening, or if the hook is twisted more than 10 degrees from the unbent plane. We suggest that a gage block properly identified to the hoist, similar to the one shown in Figure 5-2, be made for each hook for use in these measurements.

FIGURE 5-2 Gage Block.

14

g)Hooks showing signs of cracks must be replaced. Hooks should be inspected at least once per year using dye penetrants, magnetic particle, or other suitable nondestructive test methods.

h)Check wear of the hook, especially at the saddle and replace if worn more than 10% of original dimensions.

5-3.INSPECTION OF UPPER BLOCK.

a)Check upper block sheaves (when hoist is so equipped) for wear, damage and freedom of rotation.

If sheaves do not rotate freely, disassemble block and inspect bearings. Replace worn or damaged bearings, washers, pins, or sheaves.

b)Make certain that all sheaves, bearing and hanger pins are free of foreign material. Bearings without grease fittings are lubricated for the life of the bearing and require no further lubrication.

c)Make certain that the rope retention bolts are not bent, loose or otherwise distorted; bolts must have close clearance to sheave flange to keep rope in sheave grooves.

5-4.INSPECTION OF ELECTRICAL CONTROLS.

Arrangement of electrical control equipment varies with the type of control, physical space and the optional control features ordered with the hoist.

Note the location in the electrical enclosure of the control circuit fuse, transformer, limit stop switches and the hoist contactors. Trolley contactors and optional hoist and trolley fuses are also located in this enclosure.

Use wiring diagrams furnished with hoist to determine electrical components on your hoist; then determine component location and identity on your hoist.

WARNING

Be certain that main power switch is locked in open position (OFF) before opening hinged control enclosure cover mounted to the counterweight.

a)Open hinged control panel enclosure cover mounted to the counterweight and inspect wiring and terminals. Terminals should be

securely crimped to wires and insulation sound. Terminal screws should be tight.

b)Check condition of contactor assembly, transformer, and upper limit switches.

WARNING

Check to be certain main power switch is locked in open position (OFF) before removing brake cover.

5-5.INSPECTION OF ROPE GUIDE.

a)General. The rope guide is intended to help prevent the rope from “back-winding” and to hold the rope in the proper groove. Side pulling and excessive load swing will severely damage the rope guide and must be avoided.

WARNING

Side pulling and excessive load swing will severely damage the rope and rope guide. Failure of these components may result in injury.

Figure 5-3. Rope Guide Assembly.

b)Disassembly. Refer to Figure 5-3. For further assistance in locating components refer to the parts list in Section IX.

(1)Remove socket head cap screws and lock washers (Items 8 and 9). Take off mounting clip (Item 7).

(2)Remove shoulder bolts (Item 4) and compression springs (Item 5). The two halves of the rope guide body (Item 1) can now be pulled off the drum separately. When reassembling be sure that the half with the rope slot is on the top half of the drum.

WARNING

Once shoulder bolts are removed, the halves will separate and, if not properly supported, the halves could fall.

(3)Carefully unhook the rope tensioning spring (Item 3), which is under tension.

WARNING

The rope tensioning spring is under considerable tension; use caution when unhooking to avoid injury.

(4)Remove the split plastic shroud (Item 2) from the drum. When reassembling the rope guide be sure the plastic shroud (Item

2)fits snugly in the rope guide body groove.

(5)Thoroughly clean and inspect all components.

(6)Follow steps in reverse to reassemble. Be sure to re-grease the rope guide with MPG (Paragraph 4-7) after assembling.

5-6.ROPE INSPECTION, MAINTENANCE AND REPLACEMENT.

WARNING

Wire Rope improperly handled or abused can create a SAFETY HAZARD. Read and comply with inspection, maintenance and replacement information given herein.

a)Inspection. Wire rope on your hoist is one of the most important components requiring frequent inspection and maintenance. All
