GIS LP500 Hoist

GIS LP500 Hoist

Introducing the GIS LP500 Hoist. The D8 hoist has a SWL of 800KGs and a self-weight of only 22KGs!

The brand-new electric chain hoist LP500 of the Swiss manufacturer GIS calls attention by its performance data. It convinces through a modular assembly and with 60% higher lifting capacity than the D8-motor. The two-stage transmission with helical gearing ensures very quiet running at max. 65dB. Due to protection class IP65 as standard, it is predestined for mobile outdoor use. The second brake for the D8-Plus-Motor can be assembled on the shaft without housing extension. Due to shaft-hub-connections in polygonal-design, maintenance is carried out quickly, easily and without special tools. The warranty for new purchases is now 3 years.

Profile steel chain
The case-hardened and manganese phosphated profile steel chain provides about 15% more capacity at an identical nominal diameter compared to the round steel chain. The higher cross-sectional area reduces wear and increases the lifetime of the chain.

3-stage self-contained gear
All LP electric chain hoists are equipped with a 3-stage self-contained gear. The helical gearing with geometrical optimization ensures extremely quiet running. This allows the handling of loads during events. Thanks to the protection provided by the cover and housing the sound pressure level of the LP is only 65 dB. This makes it one of the quietest motors available on the market.

Easy to maintain
Motor with permanent grease lubrication, proven DC spring-loaded brake and dry-running slipping clutch.
The second independent DC spring-loaded brake for the D8-plus-design can be assembled on the present shaft without using a housing extension.

Polygonal connections
A real innovation is hidden inside the chain hoist. All shaft-hub connections are built to a polygonal design. This allows significantly faster disassembly and assembly during maintenance and reduces service costs.

GIS-Polygon-Chain-Wheel

Protection class IP65
A feature of the hoist is the protection class IP65. It is dust proof and protected against water jets. The LP is perfectly suitable for outside use, even under the most difficult conditions.
On open-air events or on concert tours, the rigger will appreciate the weather resistance and reliability of this electric chain hoist.

Path & load measurement options
For both path and load measuement, additional components and electrical parts can be easily integrated in the chain hoist. On the drive shaft and/or the chain wheel, the installation of incremental or absolute encoders is prepared for path measurement. Special eyebolt and hook suspensions allow easy installation of a load measuring pin for load measurement.

Elation Fuze Series

Elation Fuze Series

Introducing the Elation Fuze series – homogenized high-power single source LED solution with RGBW color mixing and motorized zoom.

Elation Professional announces launch of the new Fuze Series™ of dynamic LED wash luminaires. Using single-lens RGBW COB LEDs for an extremely homogenized field of light and offering a wide palette of colors, Fuze Series lights are ideal lighting solutions anywhere a wash of high-quality colored light is required.

Available in moving head and IP65-rated PAR versions, single source RGBW color mixing gives fully premixed color looks and an extremely flat field of light. With a lens face that appears as one color instead of individual LED diodes, lighting designers will value Fuze Series fixtures for their non-pixel look as well as their ability to wash a surface or subject without the multi-shadows created from traditional LED wash fixtures. All Fuze Series fixtures offer useful design features including a wide zoom angle range for more precise beam control, full 100% electronic dimming, variable dimming curves and high-speed strobe. The Fuze PAR’s feature an optional gel frame / barn door / snoot holder as well.

GIS LPM250 Hoist

GIS LPM250 Hoist

The new GIS LPM D8 hoist has a SWL of 320KGs and a self-weight of only 12KGs!

Also read: http://www.productionwarehouse.co.za/product_spotlight/gis-lp500-hoist/

With a weight of only 12 kg, the LPM is the lightest among the electrical chain hoists in the entertainment industry. It is modern and compact in design with modular construction. The 3-stage transmission and the 5-pocket chain wheel lead to very
quiet running in operation. The slipping clutch is outside the drive train.

Below you will find a couple of arguments which speak for the LPM hoist:

Profile steel chain
The phosphate coated and casehardened profile steel load chain enables a chain diameter 7 % smaller than round steel chain with the same load capacity. This allows a more compact design of the drive mechanism, which reduces the weight of the hoist.

GIS Profile vs round chainGIS Profile Chain

Spring brake
The DC spring brake allows safe braking of the load with minimal overrun. This proven brake system is highly reliable and easy to maintain. A second brake can easily be mounted on the existing shaft and optionally independently monitored.

GIS Hoist brake systemGIS LPM CAD

Chain container
Due to the slewable suspension of the chain container, the electric chain hoist can be used as a stationary or climbing hoist without modification. With mobile use on tour, the resulting time saving is particularly valued by the stage crew.

Polygonal connections
A real innovation is hidden inside the chain hoist. All shaft-hub connections are built to a polygonal design. This allows significantly faster disassembly and assembly during maintenance and reduces service costs.

Protection class IP65
A feature of the design is the protection class IP65, it is both dust-tight and protected against water jets. With its compact and robust design, the LPM is ideally suited for outdoor use.

Elation Platinum HFX™

Elation Platinum HFX™

The Platinum HFX™ is a new compact addition to Elation””s award-winning family of hybrid beam, spot and wash luminaires.


Designed for a wide variety of professional stage and special event applications, the Platinum HFX rounds out Elation’s already successful family of hybrid fixtures, which includes the Platinum SBX and award-winning Platinum FLX, offering clear advantages over traditional multi-function moving heads.

Featuring new lamp technology and an innovative optical system, the Platinum HFX does the work of three luminaires in one. The intelligent optical system can mechanically switch between Beam, Spot and Wash modes quickly and accurately with beam angle range differing in each mode. Beam mode and Spot mode perform under their own independent optical systems resulting in a narrower beam angle and brighter central point in Beam mode (2.3° to 15°), a uniform, clearer and brighter spot field under Spot mode (3° to 22°) and a higher-quality flat field Wash effect (10° to 34°).

The Platinum HFX uses the new 280W Philips™ MSD Platinum 14R lamp and can emit up to 12,000 lumens of power, an output comparable to 700W discharge fixtures for substantial energy savings.
A superior light quality (7,800K, 80 CRI) and uniform flat field of light with a consistent field is maintained throughout the zoom range.

Design features
The Platinum HFX’s full-featured design includes plenty of color and graphics options. It offers 13 dichroic colors including UV and a new quad color (RGBY) filter, as well as CTO and CTB color correction. A variety of useful graphics are housed in two gobo wheels, one with 8 rotating, interchangeable gobos and the other with 12 static-stamped gobos. Beam multiplication for a host of effects can be achieved with the included 8-facet, 10-facet and infinity linear rotating prisms. A wash frost filter is also included. The Platinum HFX also houses a high-speed strobe, mechanical iris and an electronic dimmer.

Control and connection convenience
The Platinum HFX is controllable via 3 DMX modes (17/19/26 channels) and includes a 6-button touch control panel with a full-color 180° reversible LCD menu display that makes for easy navigation through DMX and manual settings. The fixture includes a host of other standard features like professional-grade Neutrik 5-pin DMX In/Out and PowerCON In/Out connections along with Art-Net support via RJ45 Ethernet In/Out connections. The Platinum HFX is also RDM (Remote Device Management) ready and houses a universal switch-mode power supply for use anywhere in the world.
