Winch 5 – small wire winch for dynamic movement of minor stage objects

A small and fast mini wire winch for lifting small objects on stage and in other venues.
The winch is controlled from the lighting desk, and movements on stage can be controlled
in interaction with the lighting to add dynamism to the show.
The Winch 5 has a lifting height of 10 m (33 ft) and has a built-in positioning system
which is utilised in locating the desired position.
The positioning system is controlled from a 16 bit DMX channel and is highly accurate;
the winch stops within 1 mm.
The speed of the winch is also controlled from the lighting desk, and it is possible to set
the upper and lower limits of the movement of the winch, adjusting its span of motion.
Use multiple winches to create beautiful choreography of large items, floating elements,
all synchronized and easily programmed via DMX.
