Sin­ce the mar­ket launch of Chain­Mas­ter pro­duc­ts in 1994, the Saxon-based medi­um-sized com­pa­ny has deve­lo­ped into one of the world’s lea­ding manu­fac­tu­rers of lif­ting tech­no­lo­gy in the event indus­try and offers a com­pre­hen­si­ve pro­duct ran­ge for all requi­re­ments from set-up ope­ra­ti­ons to com­plex sce­nic move­ments to com­ple­te auto­ma­ti­on of per­for­man­ces. Natio­nal and inter­na­tio­nal pro­jec­ts are mana­ged indi­vi­dual­ly from plan­ning through to imple­men­ta­ti­on and user trai­ning, and the world­wi­de net­work of Chain­Mas­ter Con­sul­ting Offices, tra­ding part­ners and trai­ned ser­vice com­pa­nies ensu­res opti­mal after-sales ser­vice.

Chain­Mas­ter works clo­se­ly with the lea­ding sta­ge con­struc­tion com­pa­nies on the mar­ket, deve­lo­ping and imple­men­ting custo­mer-spe­ci­fic solu­ti­ons that are used in clas­sic and modern thea­tres, ope­ra houses, TV stu­di­os, mul­ti-pur­po­se halls or on tour. A wide varie­ty of dri­ves such as chain hoists, win­ches, trol­leys, lif­ting plat­forms or rota­ting plat­forms can be inte­gra­ted into the Chain­Mas­ter XYZ con­trol sys­tem, enab­ling pro­fes­sio­nal users to bene­fit from safe all-in-one solu­ti­ons with opti­mum per­for­mance in accordance with EN 61508 SIL3 and BGV-C1.

The company’s refe­ren­ces the­re­fo­re inclu­de venues such as the new Elb­phil­har­mo­nie Ham­burg, the Lou­vre in Lens, the Stock­holm Ope­ra, the Alma­ty Ice Are­na, the Nokia Thea­ter Los Ange­les, the Krem­lin Sta­te Palace, the 2014 Olym­pic Games in Sot­chi, the Effe­n­ar Con­cert Hall and the Bal­ler­up Super­are­na in Den­mark.

Among other things, the first pro­to­ty­pe models of the new SK series will be pre­sen­ted at this year’s Pro­light + Sound. The new chain hoists are dimen­sio­ned accord­ing to SQ P2, which was released in Octo­ber, and can now safe­ly hold loads of up to 750 kg over peop­le accord­ing to D8plus with a sta­tic chain safe­ty fac­tor of 8:1. In addi­ti­on, the IP level of pro­tec­tion has been increa­sed to bet­ter pro­tect the dri­ves against mois­tu­re. Fur­ther models are still in the design pha­se and are expec­ted to be pre­sen­ted to users in 2020.

Fur­ther­mo­re, a new con­trol panel for the XYZ-SIL3 con­trol sys­tem will be pre­sen­ted. The stan­dard equip­ment inclu­des a 19″ touch screen and two ana­log joy­sticks. The con­so­le can be exten­ded using two HDMI/DVI moni­tor out­puts. Up to four joy­sticks and addi­tio­nal cue but­tons for live ope­ra­ti­on can also be optio­nal­ly inte­gra­ted.
