DigiHoist demonstrable, says AC-ET19 April 2012
The Rigging division of A.C. Entertainment Technologies (AC-ET) has announced that it is now able to provide demonstrations of the new Kinesys DigiHoist digital hoist controller range, for which it is the exclusive UK reseller.
At the core of the system is a digital communications link that enables multiple units to be daisy chained together. The units will automatically assign channels according to their position in the daisy chain. The high resolution OLED displays offer comprehensive channel feedback including channel number, status and load cell information.
The DigiHoist platform has been designed to be upgradable. Options include encoder inputs, as well as Ethernet and LibraCELL connectivity.
The digital link incorporates self-healing emergency stop connections which are said to eliminate the need for shorting plugs in the system. Safety features include hoist presence indication, limit monitoring and group halting on fault conditions.
The range includes a choice of industry standard “Socapex” and “Harting” type connections, low voltage and direct control versions, and 8-, 16- and 32-channel handheld remote options.
"The Kinesys DigiHoist is the controller we have been waiting for,” said A.C. Rigging’s Sales Manager, Adam Beaumont. “Its progressive design and expandability make it a wise, future proof investment. It’s definitely the smart solution for anyone looking to invest in digital motor control today."
