XLNT launches brand new CyberHoist II system at ProLight+Sound 14 april 2015
Germany - XLNT Advanced Technologies is launching the brand new CyberHoist II™ system at ProLight+Sound, Frankfurt in Hall 9.0, booth E88.

 

CyberHoist II is the 2nd generation of world's first intelligent, variable speed chain hoist specifically designed for heavy-duty, worldwide touring and large-scale events. The system has already proven to be an instant hit with safety conscious professionals across the world.

 

Designed and manufactured by entertainment motion control systems expert XLNT, CyberHoist II has - right after its release - been ordered by customers in Europe (Germany, Belgium, Finland, Georgia and The Netherlands) and Asia (Japan, Hong Kong, Macau, Israel and Kazakhstan), with first performances on projects varying from Linkin Park's critically acclaimed dynamic set for the band's European tour to the recent KinKi Kids arena shows in Japan, to name but a few.

 

Designed with safety as a priority, CyberHoist II embraces SIL 3 (Safety Integrity Level 3) compliant technology, controlled by CyberMotion's MotionCue3D™ Performance Console and is compliant with applicable international safety standards and codes of practice (EN61508 - Sil3, DIN56950, BS, FEM). It includes all top-notch options, such as dual channel load cell and bi-channel high-speed communication including actual load and status information from hoists and programmed objects to the operator.

 

"We believe this is the first premium quality performing SIL 3 compliant chain hoist to be manufactured in the world, and is even competitively priced," says Marc van der Wel, XLNT's Director of Sales and Marketing.

"We specifically developed it to meet the unique needs of the entertainment industry, where quiet, smooth, fast and safe functionality is a top priority. In addition, a CyberHoist II system is very fast and intuitive to program. It has a particularly short set-up and tear-down time making it both time and cost efficient on a busy and demanding touring production." 

 

The CyberHoist II compact, all-in-one design fully incorporates the drive and motion controller and facilitates absolute positioning (with 0.1 mm accuracy), which enables everything from basic repetitive positioning through to complex 2D and 3D movements.

 

"Busy touring professionals will be delighted to know that CyberHoist II is also multi-voltage for global use (200-440V - 50/60 Hz)," continues Marc. "It features an elevated duty cycle (60%!!), which expedites easy fast lifting of medium to heavy loads and the system includes a network controlled E-stop and Dead Man's Handle."  

 

Absolute positioning and unique object-oriented programming, using multiple actuators and objects, can be achieved with the MotionCue3D™ operating consoles. Furthermore, the dedicated C-Power™ power distribution and e-stop units add to the system.

 

"We're really looking forward to demonstrating the CyberHoist II to the touring and installation professionals visiting Frankfurt for ProLight+Sound 2015," says Marc. "We think they will be impressed with its impeccable safety credentials and super quiet precision operation that our team will show them, which will allow them to get on with creating no compromise, dynamic designs."

 

XLNT Advanced Technologies and CyberHoist Germany will be on booth E88 in Hall 9.0 at ProLight+Sound, Frankfurt, from 15 to 18 April 2015.
