Frankfurt, Germany, 25-28 April 2023 – At Prolight + Sound 2023, TAIT will invite attendees to explore the world of opportunities for live experience automation technologies, as TAIT showcases products for automation:
- A 2500kg capacity variable-speed chain hoist. This powerful hoist offers 200mm/s movement, and the capability of slowing all the way down to 0mm/s, which means that it can perform smooth motion at any intermediate speed. The hoist is accompanied by a new 7.5kW variant of the Kinesys Pulse Drive, incorporating the TAIT Navigator™ Infinity Panel.
TAIT has a long history of creating bespoke products for prestigious live events and entertainment installations around the world, and has many decades experience integrating products into projects.
Also on display will be the epiQ console with live demonstration of the seamless integration with Kinesys variable-speed chain hoists. Visitors to the stand are invited to meet the TAIT Training team, who have announced a suite of new in-person and online courses, available globally.
