The MEGAWATT is a versatile descender device for industrial climbing and rescue use. Its special lever geometry allows a large transmission ratio and an extremely wide working range. At the same time, its anti-panic feature reduces the risk of an accident in the event of loss of control. It is suitable for left and right-handed users alike (regardless of active or passive operation) and enables optimal handling even in working positions that are difficult to access, making the MEGAWATT the most versatile descender device on the market with maximized compactness and minimized weight.
The lever itself is made of a two-component material with rubber inserts for maximum grip. The integrated anti-panic function significantly reduces the risk of an accident in the event of a loss of control.
Whether used actively or passively, the MEGAWATT is equally suitable for left and right-handed users. Depending on the work site and preferences, users can descend by either pushing or pulling the lever. On arrival at the desired work site, the MEGAWATT enables easy positioning. The integrated autolock function locks the device so there is no need to park the lever or tie off the descender. The short lowering lever also reduces the risk of snagging.
A further sophisticated detail is the opening mechanism with a safety lock. This makes it possible to leave the MEGAWATT clipped onto the harness when inserting the rope, a situation in which the descender would typically be lost. If the MEGAWATT is semi-permanently installed in rescue systems, it can be locked using the screw supplied.
The highly robust design not only enhances safety but also enables the longest possible, and therefore sustainable, use. EDELRID pursues this philosophy with as many products as possible. As such, the MEGAWATT also comes with steel inserts in particularly abrasions-prone areas.
It fulfills four important work safety standards (EN 12841-C, EN 341-2A, EN 15151-1/8, and ANSI/ASSE Z359.4)
