Model 110: Auto-Stop Option v2.0
A NEW OPTIONAL FEATURE for our Electric Lift
It makes the lift stop at the Stowage (bottom), Flatbed (adjustable) and Free-Arm (desktop) positions.
Perhaps better than saving on wear and tear on the lift itself, extending the warranty to 5 years, this consumer friendly feature removes the hassle of seeking that just-right position for your insert/filler for working as a flatbed machine.
OPERATION - Version 2
Press and hold the UP/DOWN switch as usual until the lift stops by itself at either the bottom or Flatbed position. To continue to the Free-Arm position hold the bypass button and then press UP/DOWN switch in the UP direction until the lift stops on its own. To return to the Flatbed position press DOWN untill the position is passed then go UP again until it stops. To park at the bottom hold the UP/DOWN switch in the DOWN direction until it stops.
OPERATION - Version 1
Auto-Stop installed on lifts before May 1, 2014. Press and hold the UP/DOWN switch as usual until the lift stops by itself at either the bottom or Flatbed position. To continue to the Free-Arm position hold the UP/DOWN switch in the UP direction and TAP the Bypass button until the lift continues to rise without it, then ONLY hold the UP/DOWN switch in the UP direction until it again stops on its own. To park at the bottom hold the UP/DOWN switch in the DOWN direction until it stops. CAUTION: DO NOT HOLD THE BYPASS BUTTON IN as it will bypass the other limits as well and void the warranty.
Adjusting the Flatbed position stop is facilitated by turning the threaded rod, located behind the lift rail opposite the drive rack, using the two jamb nuts found about 6 inches from the bottom of the lift. WITH THE MACHINE IN PLACE, as viewed from above, turn the rod clockwise to raise the position and counter-clockwise to lower the position. When checking the setting be sure to lower well passed the level and then raise again. Once set the level should remain exactly the same each time. Changing the weight on the lift such as adding something to the machine may change the stop location. If the weight changes or you change machine altogether, it is a simple matter of re-adjusting the stop again for the new weight.
A lift that comes with the Auto-Stop option already installed, automatically has the lift warranty extended to 5 years.
Retro-Fitting to Lifts Without the Feature
Owners of our current rectangular rail lift since 2013 can have this feature added after sale. Though it won't extend the warranty to 5 years it will provide added protection against the harsh conditions of running into the top or bottom and up and down jerks to get to the right Insert position, extending the life of the motor and components.
