InteLIFT® Force Sensing Unit

Force Sensing Control Unit

Force Sensing Control Unit

The InteLIFT® "IC" series balancers come standard with a force-sensing load cell that converts small levels of operator force into up/down movement through the full lifting range, without the need for up/down pendant controls.
These models also come equipped with a 12 ft (3.7 m) twin-bonded pre-coil cable including air hose and electronic control hose.


  • Self-balancing

    Intuitive speed control for a variety of different weights

  • Robust design

    Electric controls plus air operation give you continuous duty cycle with minimal maintenance

  • Part Present sensor

    Eliminates the potential to accidentally drop a part

  • Multi-speed capabilities

    3 speed selector enables speeds to match each application and operator comfort level

  • Force-sensing controls

    Senses force input of the user and translates it to assisted lifting and lowering of the load without the need for pushing additional up/down buttons.

Operation Modes

  • Hoist mode (Lift & Lower)

    Lift and lower is the default mode of the InteLIFT unit and allows the operator precision handling of variable weight loads

  • Pouring/Dump mode

    Is part of the new “Intelligence” for balancers and allows dumping or pouring of material while maintaining load position and stability

  • Smart Drop mode

    Allows for the automatic release of a load by a Handling Device once the load is lowered and no longer supported by the InteLIFT

  • Float mode

    Allows the operator to manually raise, lower and position “Float” a load with virtually no part weight or resistance to the operator
