Auxiliary Equipment

We offer a full line of lifting magnet equipment for the safety and reliability of your operation. Turnkey product and service support includes spreader beams, power sources, control panels, disconnect switches, battery back-ups, monitoring systems, alarms and more.

250 VDC Magnet Safety Disconnect Switch

Magnet circuits, which are highly inductive, occasionally require disconnection while the magnet is energized. The switch is polarity sensitive. Input and output power leads must be connected as indicated by markings.


  • Manually operated
  • Automatic discharge of magnet power
  • Mechanical interlock (door must be closed to operate)
  • NEMA 3R/12 (IP-55) combination enclosure
  • Provides operator safety
  • Standard sizes 30, 60, 100 and 200 amp
    • 30 A and 60 A switches do not require power resistor

Spreader Beams

Heavy duty magnet spreader beams are designed for customer specific applications.

  • Heavy duty steel beam or channel construction
  • Multiple magnets mounted on beam, dependent on requirement
  • Completely prewired with main junction box
  • Various suspension available- chain, rigid yoke or spring
  • Fixed or telescoping beams available
  • Designed to meet ASME “Below the Hook” standards

Additional Equipment

  • Fanning control
  • Under current alarm package
  • Reduced voltage relay panel
  • Various control switches
  • Resistor and meter packages
  • Surge suppressors
  • Warning and alarm devices
