Movecat presents first model in a new series of winches for entertainment applications

Nufringen, (PresseBox) - The VMW-S 125-3 is the first device in a new series of winches from Movecat developed directly for universal operation in the entertainment, tour and events industries. The VMW-S 125-3 has been tested in accordance with BGV C1, DIN 56950 and BGG 912 and approved for use in manned airframes as well as conforming to EN 61508 SIL 3. It lifts up to 125 kg at speeds varying from 0 to 3 metres per second. The winch achieves acceleration values up to an astounding 3m/sec². The lifting height is up to 24 metres.

The VMW-S winch series scores with an extremely compact format and is capable of operating in a wide variety of different setting-up and mounting configurations. It has a round-tube frame structure in the 520 mm grid and is mount-compatible with GP and ST52 trusses. Maintenance-free or low-maintenance mechanical and functional elements assure problem-free use even under stressful tour conditions. For this reason, all parts feature a matt black finish with a special protective coating to guard against corrosion on tour. Furthermore, a wide variety of accessories is already available for use on the road.

The technical refinements include a cable guide with a central cable outlet, reduced operating noise and such features as two independent noiseless brakes with contact-free monitoring, a dynamic load-measuring system with function testing, and additional variable adaptors for truss couplers. In closed-loop mode, hovering and a change of run direction are possible without incursion of the brakes. The VMW-S 125-3 in conjunction with V-Motion 75 can be integrated into the I-Motion network.
