Kinesys will exhibit at Prolight+Sound 2016 in Frankfurt (5th – 8th April) and be
located in Hall 3.0 on stand D15 with a totally new stand design, a fresh look and a
different feel to illustrate their range of standard and bespoke premium products
from the world of automation engineering.
The booth will feature a widescreen video wall and also an exciting new show-reel
and product videos. As always the stand will include live movement demonstrating
the flexibility and creative scope of products including Kinesys’ winches, as well as
the integration between automation and media servers.
A DST trolley system, built by trussing manufacturer LITEC and controlled by
Kinesys, will be highlighted on both the Kinesys and LITEC stands. Recent examples
of this in action include Motorhead’s final tour in December 2015, flying their
famous bomber and making it more manoeuvrable and versatile than ever before.
Four key standard Kinesys products will also be highlighted – Libra, Elevation,
DigiHoist and Velocity2.
Libra is a range of products designed to provide simple and accurate load
measurements and monitoring in numerous rigging and load-bearing applications,
which are increasingly crucial for all types of live events. The system comprises of
three main elements: the load cell – an extremely neat shackle pin design, the
power supply, and the viewing / programming software. The Libra system has full
connectivity with other Kinesys products allowing load measuring to be integrated
into any system.
The ever popular Elevation variable speed controller will be featured on the stand.
Designed to be located locally to the chain hoist that it controls, this innovative
approach removes the need for large quantities of cabling and permits a number of
motors and controllers to be run via single power and data cables.
Kinesys’ DigiHoist motor control system offers fixed speed digital control for chain
hoists, complete with safety group functionality in an adaptable and configurable
control solution. DigiHoist incorporates all the safety features required to work in
group hoist mode and complies with the requirements of D8+. Load monitoring,
group stop and self-healing Emergency Stop are all standard DigiHoist features.
The controllers can also be expanded to allow accurate positioning of hoists and
operation from Kinesys’ control software.
Kinesys’ Velocity 2 drives have been developed to meet the most stringent current
safety legislation and SIL3 standards whilst still offering excellent functionality and
usability. Available in a range of sizes and voltages these drives can control almost
any winch including Kinesys’ multi-function ZF range.
