Welcome to the E-Lift II, the electronic marvel that makes lifting harnesses a breeze. Energy that used to be spent stomping treadles can now be used to weave comfortably and to weave more. Plus, unlike large and noisy pneumatic lifts, the E-Lift is quiet!
The E-Lift is a small box that mounts under the loom and is plugged into a standard electrical wall outlet. It has a cabling system that is connected to the dobby.
The easy-to-use foot switch sits on the floor where the treadles would normally sit. Information is relayed from the foot switch to the box, which moves the dobby and thus lifts the harnesses. Step on the foot switch and the harnesses go up. Step on the switch again and the harneses go down. It's that simple!
The E-Lift II even allows you to select between single or double-shed. In the single shed selection, the E-Lift II operates as discussed above. Select double-shed and each time the foot switch is depressed, the shed moves from closed to open. This feature speeds weaving and improves the weaving rythm.
AVL has engineered the latest in high technology to design a lift system that is reliable and easy to use. To ensure that the installation process is equally as stress-free, we have created an installation manual that takes you through each step.
E-Lift II can be added to any A-Series, Production, Technical, Ultimate, Folding or Studio Dobby Loom built since 1979. It is compatible with the mechanical dobby, Compu-Dobby I, Compu-Dobby II and Compu-Dobby III. (Make sure you tell us which you have at the time of your order.) Due to the E-Lift II's complexity, order lead time is 6-8 weeks.
