XLNT Launches PowerMotion DS8

Solid State Motion Controller Series

(PresseBox) (AH Utrecht, Netherlands, ) XLNT Advanced Technologies has launched the PowerMotion DS8 Pro and Pro Plus Series of Solid State Motion Controllers, designed to provide the rigging industry's highest level of safety, protection and reliabilty, with all required operational options for controlling motors, winches, etc.

The first public showing of the DS8 Series will be at the Pro Light+Sound trade show in Frankfurt this April 1-4 2009 (with German Distributor CAST, C. Adolph & RST Distribution, at Booth D.53 in Hall 9.0).

Each DS8 Motion Controller can control up to eight Direct or Low Voltage Control Chain Hoists, and features a Solid State MCB per individual motor/channel plus adjustable maximum power output up to 9 Amps - an industry-leading output. The highest level of safety and protection is provided by the PL D, ISO 13849-1 and SIL2 compliant Emergency Stop System.

The DS8 Series is available in two types - for Direct Control and for Low Voltage Control chain motors.

Each type also comes in a choice of two versions.

The 'Pro' version provides full hoist control for all typical professional rigging applications.

The 'Pro Plus' version adds extra multi-unit flexibility for an optimal work environment: Remote connection (a dedicated Remote Control handling up to nine DS8 units, totalling 72 motors/channels, will be available shortly), as well as Link connection and functionality (to operate more motors from one unit), and 32 Amp 3-Phase (3F+N+Gr) link-through.

Further safety and protection of hoists is provided by the DS8 Series' Group Safety Mode, which cuts power to all connected hoists should power fail to one hoist, and standard integrated automatic Phase Inversion correction.

The controllers are built to last, with heavy duty industrial grade toggle switches, buttons and output connectors, and are fully CE compliant and built in accordance with all applicable EU and industry standards.
