Automate Your Counterweight Sets
Tired of heavy counterweights and long climbs to the loading gallery? Convert your manual rigging sets to an automated system simply and economically with PowerAssist.
Easier & Safer
Besides making your work easier, you'll no longer need to load and adjust the counterbalancing weights.The motor handles the out-of-balance load, so you don't have to.
Everything You Need to Automate Your Rigging
PowerAssist single axis units are extremely compact and can be easily installed under your existing locking rail. The winch takes the place of an existing floor block and rope lock, and can be placed between two manual sets on 6" centers. It's the perfect way to automate your lighting sets!
A simple, pushbutton control station with reversing starter replaces your rope lock. Or, the SceneControl 50 lets you program four preset target positions. All control stations are equipped with key operated switches so you can prevent unauthorized use. PowerAssist hoists can also be used with SceneControl 500 and SureTarget™ 10 automation consoles that allow you to write cues for complete productions.
Your PowerAssist hoist operates at a speed of 25 fpm, with a system capacity of 0 - 2,000 lbs., without the need to adjust weights.
