HLU LE-X: Proven technology rethought

The new, patented HLU LE-X is the logical further development of the previous generation of locking units. In the aspects of dimensions, load capacity, stroke lengths, emergency actuation, corrosion protection and design, considerable progress and simplifications have been achieved in order to integrate our locking unit even better into your system landscape.

The LE-X (M, E) hydraulic locking units, which are RoHs and REACH compliant, carry a TÜV SÜD component certificate according to DIN EN 13814:2019 / ISO 17842:2015 (co-applicable ASTM F 2974-20 / F 2291-20). Furthermore, the production is certified according to ISO 9001:2015.

What is new about the type LE-X?


More design freedom for you thanks to many design advantages

  • Stroke lengths from 80 up to 250 mm
  • Envelope dimensions reduced by up to 71% (see HLU LE32 K)

-->  Increased compatibility with many different restraint systems in amusement rides


Exchangeability of existing units significantly simplified

  • The external dimensions are closely based on existing units on the market
  • "One size fits it all", i.e. you can scale the same designs of your restraint system to various rides and save costs

-->  Retrofitting and exchange in case of service - Test the LE-X!


Newly developed emergency release

  • with push-pull remote control
  • different lengths available
  • Plug & Play installation

--> Quick release in an emergency without prior removal of components / cladding


Further product advantages


  • Designed for highest loads
  • Closed and low maintenance hydraulic system
  • Electric release and manual emergency operation
  • Suitable for challenging environmental conditions (corrosion protection level up to C4 / protection class up to IP 67)
