POWER TEAM® SYNCHRONIZED LIFTING AND LOWERING SYSTEM
SPX Power Team Motion Controller System (MCS) can be used in many hydraulic applications where load position is critical, requiring cylinder synchronization.
Whether it is a bridge, a building or any kind of heavy load, with the SPX Powerteam Motion Control System, lifting, lowering, pushing, pulling, tilting or positioning loads can be carried out automatically with a high degree of accuracy.
On the SPX Powerteam Motion Control System, the PLC controlled system is a combination of digital actuation and digital control providing significant advantages such as time savings, repeatability, and extremely low internal stress in the object one is moving. The system also provides documentation for the movement performed.
TJI are able to provide Powerthon Lifetime Warranty on all Powerteam products such as, maintenance sets, heavy equipment jacks, aluminium jacks, double acting jacks, hollow jacks and much more.
Due to our valued partnerships with SPX Powerteam, SPX Bolting Systems, Norbar Torque Tools & Ingersoll Rand we are able to supply a wide range of equipment, with next day delivery, & full warranty. Our product range includes all products manufactured and supplied by these globally recognised brands, which enables TJI Solutions to bring the ultimate solution to all engineering environments.
Basic systems includes eight (8) jacking points, contact Power Team for larger MCS system requirements.
Positioning, lifting or lowering accuracy of +/- 1 mm (0.040 in).
Safety features included: full stop due to power failure, sensor failure, pressure overload, tolerance error, uncontrolled load movement, etc.
Intuitive graphic, touch screen control.
Displayed information included: startup diagnostics, position of lift points relative to starting position, pressure at each lift point, status of each cylinder and status of alarms.
MCS works with a wide range of cylinders types, tonnages and strokes to meet your application requirements.

The Main Benefit of a Motion Control System (MCS)
The Power Team MCS digitally controls the movement of an object, keeping it level within the user specified parameters. The primary reason to use a Power Team MCS is Internal Stress Reduction. When a large object is stationary, internal stresses are normalized. When the object is moved, stresses are induced. If the operator is not careful, the object can bend or twist creating a stress riser that can cause costly repairs or damage. The MCS system will assist in controlled positioning to manage the stresses created by synchronously lifting or lowering the object in unison.
Easy to Use HMI Touch Screen Interface
Control of lifting, positioning or lowering loads from PLC
Safe and accurate movement of loads
State of the art software in the PLC
Enables accuracies as low as 0.040 in (1 mm)
NEMA 12 electrical box rating
Able to operate in wide range of temperature (32 –131°F, 0 – 55°C) and humidity (30 – 95% non-condensing)
Multiple safety features and auto diagnostics
Full stop due to power failure, sensor failure, pressure overload, tolerance error, uncontrolled load movement
The home screen on the Motion Control System is easy to use and operate. It highlights all activities during use of the Motion Control System. For each cylinder in operation, the cylinders performance is captured and displayed on the HMI screen as illustrated below.

Data recording and reporting capabilities
The Power Team Motion Control System (MCS) has numerous safety features built into the digital controller which safely stop the movement in the event of an alarm. In addition, there are backup mechanical features which function even in the event of a power loss.
Digitally Controlled Safety Features
Mechanical Backup Safety Features
Maximum load exceeded
Hydraulic pump overload
Posi-Check® load lowering valve to hold load and provide a mechanical backup to safely control the lowering of the load.
Maximum pressure exceeded
E-Stop button activation
Maximum displacement exceeded
Pressure sensor wire break
Displacement sensor wire break
Manual lowering override to safely lower load in event of power loss.
System communication error
Two button start procedure prevents accidental starting
