The strongest winch in the Wahlberg range.
The Winch 50 maintains a compact form while providing 50Kg (110 lb) of lifting strength.
Working alone or configured together, the Winch 50 can be used for flying dimensional set pieces or
rigging heavier weight drapery fabrics.
DMX control makes setting positions and limits quick and easy, and complex motion cues can be written and
recalled with ease.
Suitable for heavy weight fabric rigging, and for lifting scenic elements like flats, ceiling pieces,
picture frames and window units.
The Winch 50 is a great winch for lifting and moving stage props, screens, drapes, lights, etc. in and out of the stage area
Several winches can easily be connected as a chain, allowing for advanced and creative ways of making dynamic movements.
It takes only 3 winches to lift and move an object 3-dimensionally.
The winch is controlled from the lighting desk, and can thus be controlled
in interaction with the lighting to add dynamism to the show.
The winch has an advanced positioning system 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, thus adjusting its range of motion.
