The Winch 25 double wire is a winch for lifting and moving objects in and out of the stage sphere.
It uses two active lift lines to maintain a set piece in a plane, eliminating any rotation or sway while in motion.

This winch has double-wires for extra stability and can be supplied with powered lifting wires providing
2 amp electricity to a suspended unit. Max 48 volt AC.
The winch is made specifically for the individual client, and can be produced in lengths from 20, 40, 60 cm up to 2 meters.

Like the rest of the Wahlberg Winch series, the Winch 25 Doublewire is compact enough to fit comfortably in a grid,
attach to small truss, or mount to ceiling points while still providing 25 Kg (55 lbs) of lift.
With its unique 2 wire configuration, this winch offers an easy solution to flying in
all types of scenic elements that need to maintain their proper orientation while flying.
Suitable for heavier fabric rigging, and for lifting scenic elements like chandeliers, mirrors and window units.

The winch has a built-in positioning system, so the winch is moving towards a DMX controlled position.The motion of the winch can be stopped at variable positions with high accuracy.
2 DMX channels are merged into a 16 bit channel used the determine the stop position for the winch.
The positioning with 16 bit accuracy makes the winch stop within 1 mm.
The lifting speed is also controlled by the lighting desk.
It’s also possible to adjust the limits of the working area, this is done with the display and keyboard.
