Externally mounted, electrically powered rescue hoist model 44318 utilizes the UTC Aerospace Systems proprietary translating drum cable management system. The hoist design also incorporates a Weston style load brake and overload slip clutch for added safety. The lubricated cable extends cable life and helps arrest corrosion of the cable. The 44318 is the successor model to the 44311 hoist, and adds a secondary shaft locking mechanism that meets Human External Cargo (HEC) requirements, improves the level wind system design for enhanced durability, includes fault code readout on the built-in test functionality, provides cable length readout in both feet or meters, and improves readout accuracy.
