ControlHoist™ Basic

Commercial Operator

Raynor ControlHoist™ Basic is a 1/2 horsepower, belt-drive door operator, perfect for operating smaller-sized sectional doors, rolling doors, and grilles. This entry-level door operator is loaded with innovative features along with a durable construction suitable for most commercial applications.

ControlHoist Basic - CMJ

The CMJ door operator model is designed for use on vertical lift and lift clearance sectional doors or small rolling doors and grilles. The door operator can be wall or hood mounted on either side of the door. It incorporates a floor-level disconnect mechanism for manual operation.

ControlHoist Basic - CMH

CMH is designed for use on vertical lift and lift clearance sectional doors or small rolling doors and grilles. The operator can be wall or hood mounted on either side of the door. It incorporates the patented Hoist-a-matic®, a self-engaging chain hoist for manual operation, which simplifies operation and installation.

ControlHoist Basic - CMT

The CMT door operator model is designed for use on smaller and low-cycling industrial standard lift sectional doors. It features a high starting torque limited-duty industrial type motor and a quick release disconnect arm.

Standard Features

Manual Operation:
CMJ – A floor level disconnect mechanism that must be engaged for manual push-up operation.

CMH – Hoist-a-matic® self-engaging hoist (floor level engagement device is not required to operate) for manual chain operation. An electrical interlock automatically disconnects power to the motor operator when the chain hoist is engaged. The hoist on right is standard.

CMT – Quick release disconnect arm for manual push-up operation.

Mechanical Brake: Built-in mechanical brake system helps to prevent the door from drifting and adds security by preventing forced opening.

Entrapment: UL 325 2010 requires all commercial operators to use constant pressure to close or be equipped with an approved monitored entrapment protection device, such as a monitored photo eye or reversing edge. All ControlHoist commercial operators are provided standard with constant pressure to close. In addition, a non-monitored entrapment device can also be selected.

Drive Reduction: Primary reduction is a belt drive. Secondary reduction is by chain and sprocket.

Adjustable Friction Clutch: Helps to protect the door and operator from damage should it come into contact with any obstruction.

Corrosion Protection: Frame and control enclosure protected by baked-on, long-lasting enamel finish. All shafts protected by yellow chromate coating.

Accu-cam® Limit Feature: For precise and quick one-handed limit setting adjustments.

Cycle Counter: LED clearly indicates the number of cycles logged for easy maintenance support.

Programmable Mid-Stop: This feature enables partial opening of the door to a preprogrammed position for energy savings, time savings, and convenience.

Timer-To-Close: Closes the door automatically after a predetermined amount of time has elapsed, for security and convenience.

Exterior Radio Control Terminal: Provides for fast and easy connection of radio controls. When range is an issue, an externally mounted radio receiver allows the flexibility for the receiver to be moved to a new location for improved range.

3-Button Control Station: This station provides open/close/stop functions.
