POWER TEAM® SYNCHRONIZED LIFTING AND LOWERING SYSTEM

The new 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 Power Team Motion Control System, lifting, lowering, pushing, pulling, tilting or positioning loads can be carried out automatically with a high degree of accuracy.


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.



Key Features
  • 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.
  • Operating pressure (up to) 10,000 psi (700 bar).
  • Standard system has a 40 gallon (150 liters) gallon tank.


Touch Screen Enclosure
  • Weather tight enclosure protects your investment while in storage.
  • Hinged cover provides protection for HMI touch screen.
  • Designed to act as a sun screen in bright conditions.


Data Log and Report
The Power Team MCS has the capability to record the position of each location during the project and can export the data to a .csv file which can be used to create a graph for reports and presentations.

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.

Motion Control System Home Screen

  • 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 log card
  • Data recording and reporting capabilities

Safety Features

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 FeaturesMechanical 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
  • Datalog error
  • 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

Common applications include:

  • Bridge lifting, repositioning, maintenance & launching.
  • Controlled movement and positioning of heavy equipment, buildings, concrete segments and other construction components.
  • Structural testing in civil engineering.
  • Lifting, weighing and/or determining center of gravity.
  • Structure raising, leveling & shoring.


Cylinder Selection
  • Always choose a cylinder with a tonnage rating of 20% or more than what is required to lift or position the load.
  • Power Team offers a wide variety of single, double, lock nut, pancake and center hole cylinders to meet your requirements.


Training Provided
  • Every MCS includes one day of onsite training at one of SPX’s Regional Headquarters (Rockford, IL USA or Singapore or the Netherlands).
  • Training includes both classroom and hands-on instruction. Travel & lodging not included.
