LDI 2009 New Product Introduction: Evo Hoist Controller by Kinesys

kinesys-evo-controller.jpgEvo is the new variable speed chain hoist controller from Kinesys. Designed to comply with the BGV C1 life-safety standard, it offers true zero-speed performance for ultra-slow movement cues and instantaneous starts. An integrated loadcell provides precise load information, while dual encoders offer accurate and secure positioning. A rugged metal enclosure houses the controller, offering truss and rack mounting options.

Evo is compatible with Kinesys K2 software. Both one-ton 40ft/minute and half-ton 80ft/minute hoist options are available. The universal controller can be used with either size of hoist, motor-up or motor-down with no alterations required.

Currently, a Kinesys motion control system with 40 Evo zero-speed chain hoists, eight custom winches, and K2 3D software control package are on U2's 360°world tour, moving and shaping a massive video screen that stretches and compresses under the control of 16 2-ton and 24 1-ton motors.

Kinesys motion control systems are distributed in North America by TMB. See the Evo and other innovative products at the TMB LDI 2009 Village. Hands-on demos and training will be available, as will TMB's renowned hospitality and many other exciting new product developments. Find out more about Kinesys at
