The Revolving Stage is composed of several components which can be bought separately.
Center Console with Power and Cat5
When ordereing the Revolving Stage with Power and Cat5, the Revolving Stage then comes with the Center Console with Power and Cat5.
The slipring mounted on the Center Console, provides a 360-degree Cat5 and power supply, which gives great possibilities for combining the Revolving Stage with LED screens, stage props, etc.
- The slipring connections: 4x20A + 1x1000MBIT/s Ethernet (four twisted pairs)
Price: 350,00 €
The Center Console connects the top and bottom plates, preventing sideways movement. For easy access and assembly of the Revolving Stage, the center console splits in two parts, that are mounted on the top and bottom plate.
The top and bottom plates are then easily connected by fitting the axis into the bearing on the top part and tightening the pinion screw. The Center Console can be fastened with either screws or bolts using the predrilled pattern of mounting holes.
The Center Console is a part of the Revolving Stage by default

Top and Bottom Plate
The top and bottom plates are laser cut from plywood and can be coated with a water-resistant dark coating for durability and easy cleaning. The plywood plates offer the user full flexibility when mounting objects or modifying the plates.
Both the top- and bottom-plates are delivered with predrilled holes for mounting, ensuring a quick and easy assembly.
- Dimensions: Ø1200 x 21 mm (DIA 47,2 x 0,8 in)
Other diameters is possible. (Read below)

The sensor bracket provides feedback to the DC-motor controller for precise angular positioning and speed control of the revolving stage. It consists of the encoder wheel and the magnetic sensor. During setup the magnetic sensor detects the magnet mounted on the top plate and ensures consistent positioning from setup to setup.
The encoder is mounted using either the slots or the predrilled holes in the bracket which allow a precise alignment of the encoder wheel with the direction of travel of the top plate. The encoder and magnetic sensor are easily connected to the DC-Motor Controller using the supplied five pin XLR connection.

The motor console with a 125 mm wheel and 24 V motor rotates the revolving stage. The motor platform is mounted using either the M6 threaded mounting holes in the corners, or the two predrilled holes, and is connected to the DC Motor controller using the five pin XLR connector.
With its heavy-duty design, the motor console can support loads of up to 75 kg.
It is also the left wheel of the Remote Controlled Platform.
Price: 550,00 €
The DC Motor Controller is versatile, enabling users to control DC Motors with various addons, such as limit switches, encoders, and analogue feedback.
For use as a component of the revolving stage, the DC Motor Controller is set to mode 4 – 6 and connected to the motor console and sensor bracket. The Revolving Stage can then be controlled from a lighting desk via DMX, where the user can set either the angular position of the stage, or the speed and direction of rotation.
Price: 500,00 €
The support wheels evenly support the rotating part, resulting in more a stable platform. 5 x Support Wheels are included in the Revolving Stage.
- Maximum load per. Wheel: 110 kg (242.5 lbs.)
For larger loads or diameters, it is possible to add more support wheels to the revolving stage.
Price per unit: 20,00 €
Modifying the Revolving Stage
The Revolving stage is designed to be modified according to your needs, either by Wahlberg Motion Design or yourself, due to its modular design. If a wider or smaller revolving stage is needed, the top and bottom plate diameter can be changed to suit your specifications and a heavier load can be supported by adding additional support wheels.
The flexible placement of the motor console supports these modifications as well, if a faster rotational speed is wanted, the motor console can be moved further inwards, and a larger load can be placed on the revolving stage by moving the motor console further outwards, increasing its momentum on the revolving stage, and reducing the top speed.
Please get in touch with Wahlberg for more information about possible modifications, here.
