Estrel Berlin relies on Movecat kinetic solution in new convention hall

The Estrel Berlin, Europe’s largest hotel, convention and entertainment centre, has considerably expanded its meeting and events complex with the opening of the new Convention Hall II, 10,000 square metres of additional events space are now available. On its three levels, Convention Hall II offers 4,600 square metres for up to 5,200 people, a 1,500-square-metre hall for 900 people, one 700-metre foyer, four meeting rooms for up to 100 people, and three additional lounges.

For a highly modern events area such as Convention Hall II, in terms of technical equipment, state-of-the-art material capable of satisfying the highest expectations was required: for this reason, the decision-makers opted for a kinetic system from Movecat. In all, 96 Movecat Pluslite 1250 D8 Plus electric chain hoists with two-track operation limit switches including the X2 Option Kit that also in the case of 400 V direct drive hoists allows the determination of working limits without requiring addition control leads were installed beneath the ceiling of the new events hall. Twelve Movecat MPC 4ID8 High Power Controllers housed in a variety of system racks serve as the control platform for the system; high-performance PDU Power Stations provide the power for each rack, with these and all the cabling derived also from the Movecat product range.
