Motorised systems specialist Triple E will be demoing its recently launched wireless control for its popular TracDrive motor systems at PLASA Focus Leeds, stand RA-B14.

Triple E - which has a 30-year history of inventing engineering solutions for the entertainment industry - has constructed a mock up curtain scenery display to show off the simple plug and play Wireless TracDrive unit, which attaches to the XLR socket on all TracDrive, EDrive, and SDrive motors and enables cable-free operation.

"Many venues require additional control positions or even the ability to operate anywhere in a building or auditorium so the simple 'plug and play' wireless system with a hand held pocket size remote is the answer," says Triple E's managing director David Edelstein. "It saves time and money on routing cables and literally takes a couple of minutes to connect and set up.

"This new addition to our control options has been very successful, most recently for the education sector in school auditoriums."

With Triple E's motor units all using pre-stretched polyester rope with a grade and colour coded braid made only for Triple E, the motors offer near silent operation and are more user friendly than motors operating with steel wire rope.

The TracDrive range was launched 20 years ago and was designed to directly attach to the tracks as a bolt-on accessory, providing Triple E's solution to the problem of where to locate the motor drive unit. All the TracDrive units provide variable speed and the modular design of the units make it ideal where space is at a premium and specialist skills are not required for installation.

The Triple E team invites visitors to PLASA Focus Leeds to experience the Wireless TracDrive controller on stand RA-B14 at the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds, April 30 and May 1.
