XLNT CyberHoist II unveils new system surprises at LDI 2015

October 2015

LDI 2015 will see the North American premiere of the latest upgrade to entertainment motion control systems expert XLNT Advanced Technologies' industry respected CyberHoist II system.

The new incarnation of the world's first intelligent, variable speed, robust chain hoist and control system, CyberHoist II CH528, has been specifically designed to overcome the creative, logistical and physical rigours of automation design for entertainment environments, large scale events and touring.

Since the system's successful preview launch at Prolight + Sound Frankfurt 2015, XLNT's research and development team has continued to fine tune its pro-user-valued features.

Although the system still features its signature strength, smooth operation, intuitive plug and play interface and compact design, under its hood is a range of improved software and hardware features, each steered by XLNT's valued customer feedback. Today it offers a motion controller, world-wide multi-voltage power supply (200-440V (+/- 10%) / 50-60HZ), absolute positioning up to 0.1 mm, elevated duty cycle of 60% for fast lifting of heavy loads and network controlled E-stop and Dead Man's Handle without additional cabling.

The CyberHoist II™ CH528 enables a show designer to create precise, complex 2D and 3D movements at variable speed, with multiple actuators in single, group or subgroup formations.

Since its launch, The SIL3 (Safety Integrity Level 3) compliant system has provided the smooth, silent scenic automation solution on such large-scale, heavy-duty projects as the colossal KCON LA convention this summer and Linkin Park's sell-out European tour earlier in the year.

Esteemed Belgium-based lighting, video and motion control house Gravity recently invested in the system and praised XLNT's attention to customer feedback: "We greatly appreciate that we can participate in the development of the product's software as XLNT takes our comments on board," says Gravity's Robin van Bael.

XLNT will be demonstrating the system in live presentations throughout LDI 2015 and invites show visitors to come along and test drive its extensive capability and ease of use.
