DMX Rotator

Use the Rotator virtually anywhere you need simple but precise motorized control of a spinning set piece.
Consider it for moving clock hands, rotating signs, motorized window or door pivots, advanced mirror ball effects,
periaktoi, rotating mirror panels, or anything else that a designer imagines.
Can be mounted vertically or horizontally, and is operated via a DMX controller.

See the DMX rotator used at Odense Teater, 2017 
This is how it works:

The Rotator is an advanced mirror ball motor with DMX control.
The motor can spin with variable speed,  both clockwise and counter clockwise.
The motor has a servo – positioning system, with different operation modes.
It’s possible to spin the motor continuously with variable speed for some minutes, change direction during spinning,
and then, when needed,  stop the motor at a certain angle.

The Rotator is often used to rotate curtains, banners, huge mirror balls  or other kinds of set pieces in the theater,
show and exhibition area.
With a simple DMX interface it’s easy to integrate advanced and dynamic movements to the show,
and it’s possible to make precise and smooth operations.

The output shaft is made of 20 mm iron shaft. The shaft has a 10 mm tread in the end, and also a 10 mm hole sideways in the shaft
(see detailed dimensions under Technical Details)  Both holes are used for mounting the rotation object.

The Rotator is made for applications hanging from the ceiling, with rotation around a vertical shaft.
Horizontal rotation is only possible with a very limited weight, or if the load is supported with extra bearing
so that the product is not carrying the full horizontal load.
