With the new DMX High-speed Roll Down, classic roll drop technology has been reinvented to make it easier to operate,
faster to install, and drastically more affordable.
Powerful AC motors with 16-bit DMX encoders are located inside the roll down itself.
Hanging the drum is simply a matter of mounting the half-clamps to your pipe, truss or overhead points.
Provide power and DMX and the installation is complete. No drive chains, limit boxes, or other gadgets to connect.
High-speed Roll Downs has a length of 1.5 m up to 6 m ( 4.9 f up to 19.6 f ).
An optional length of up to 12 m ( 39.4 f) is possible with a built-in splicing unit.
Position, speed and operating range can be controlled using the integrated DMX interface.
LCD display with simple menu for adjusting the DMX channels, motor parameters and functionality.
The Roll Down is a large motorized aluminum tube, with mount for stage curtain or fabric.
The Roll Down is controlled from the lighting desk, via the integrated DMX interface.
Variable speed and precise positioning provide an easy and effective tool for curtain motion.
A 16-bit DMX channel controls the position, while a second channel controls the speed of the movement.
The movements can easily be implemented to a cue list in the lighting desk, and integrated into the show.
- Preconfigured and ready to hang. No chains or limit boxes to install and tension
- High speed operation for fast scene changes
- Quickly configure multiple limit positions using precise 16-bit DMX control
- Internal motor eliminates bulky drive boxes for a smaller profile and cleaner look
- Mount multiple units end to end with minimal wasted space
The Roll Down system is available as a custom solution, with adaptation of curtain width, working height, speed and lifting capacity.
The Roll Down motor unit is a separate unit with a flange for mounting the curtain roll.
The curtain roll length can be shortened or extended as needed.
