Elevation1+ is a variable speed controller designed to work with customised versions of the most popular models of chain hoist, such as Lodestar, Liftket and GIS. It will also control beam trolleys.

2

The LibraCELL is a load measuring shackle with a highly visible LED display which allows users to view the live load being placed on the shackle. Switching between kg and lbs as well as inputting a tare value is all achieved via an easy to use menu system.

3

Array PD-ES is the perfect marriage of Power Distribution and Emergency Stop control. This distribution and safety module provides a SIL2 emergency stop system, individual MCBs for each output and an adjustable RCD with status indicator.

4

The Rigger handset is a smart, user-friendly remote control which allows full variable speed operation during set up of a show. It is available in 8,16 and 24 way versions.

5

Vector is a software program that allows cues to be built and run with a variety of linking options. The amount of cues that can be built and channels that can be controlled are limited only by your imagination.

6

K2 is Kinesys’ motion control console and employs an intuitive approach to automation programming. The operator uses ‘click and drag’ to move objects on the screen within a 3D world rather than typing positions into a table. This gives instant feedback as to the object’s position in relation to other moving items.

Rigger Designed to mimic industry-standard handheld controllers the Rigger offers an instantly recognisable method of operation with minimal training required. A Rigger can operate variable speed chain hoists and can be used in place of, or in conjunction with, a computer control system such as Vector or K2. Using the flexible menu system on the Elevation1+ along with the on-board speed control, the Rigger can be used as a controller for simple set up operations where only basic movements are required. It is not recommended to run shows using a Rigger handset unless allowed by your risk assessment. An Emergency Stop button built into the handset and group halt functionality means that the Rigger provides a safe method of movement for set up purposes. The Rigger will automatically scan and recognise all connected Elevation1+ units, further enhancing ease of use and operation.

Rigger 8, 16 and 24 way handheld controllers offer instant control of the Kinesys Elevation range of products

Features • The ability to enable and disable the limits using a bypass key • Integrated speed control for use with variable speed hoists • Positive, direct action toggle switches as well as separate Up, Down and Status indicators provide intuitive and instant feedback • Integrated Emergency Stop button, multifunction key switch and a group halt feature ensure the unit can be operated safely and securely • A single XLR7 cable provides the power and data connection required to operate the unit

• Control Connections • XLR7 for power and data • 2 x XLR7 on 16 and 24 way Rigger handsets

The programming and playback environments display real moving objects as realistic graphical representations. These are positioned in a 3D space in the correct proportions and relation to the stage, set and other items as well as other moving objects. All these graphical items can be created in industry standard CAD packages and imported directly into K2. Programming then becomes very simple, with manipulation of the moving objects as straightforward as click-and-drag. The ability to move objects in real world axes, X, Y, Z, pitch, tilt and rotate makes programming very intuitive with K2 shielding the user from the complex multi-dimensional calculations required and instead presenting them with easy to use programming parameters. User programmable limits and clamps allow envelopes of motion to be easily constructed around objects. When combined with numerous other safety features and extensive feedback to the user, the programmer is in complete control of the devices being used. K2 is not just limited to winches and chain hoists - any number of devices can be connected to this powerful and flexible system. Personality files make integrating new mechanical devices into the system very straightforward. K2 includes the ability to output positional information to media servers, allowing for a great deal of creative freedom and flexibility when using motion and video together.

K2 is a powerful, graphically based, control solution for automation and motion control
