McLaughlin Hoist & Crane



A pendant station is the primary interface between the crane and crane operator. It is generally a hanging rectangular enclosure holding switches that are activated by plungers which open or close a given switch. Control signals are normally transmitted to the hoist or crane through a pendant cord, however, more advanced wireless radio controls are available. The top of the pendant can either be attached to the hoist itself or to a “floating” pendant festoon system. The “floating pendant” allows the crane operator to control the crane from any position along the bridge. Insure productive use of your crane by purchasing ergonomic and easy to use pendant stations form McLaughlin Hoist & Crane. We distribute and istall replacement pendant stations, pendant cords, pin & plug connectors, and complete “floating” pendant systems.
