Movecat premieres VMW-S 125-3-30 MK II Entertainment Winch in Frankfurt

Germany - At this year's Prolight + Sound show in Frankfurt, Movecat presented for the first time the new MK II version of its VMW-S 125-3-30 Entertainment Winch. In comparison to that of its predecessor, the performance of the new winch has been optimized in numerous areas.

New features include a non-welded aluminium frame construction in the popular 52cm truss format, the full load handling qualities of which are retained even when the device is used as a bearing structure. A variety of truss connector solutions can be employed as options. At the same time, the overall weight has been reduced to 203kg. The maintenance-free basic structure is powder-coated in matt black. Furthermore, the operating and emergency limit switches can now be easily adjusted from the outside.

The VMS-S 125-3-30 is capable of hoisting loads of up to 125kg, the acceleration being continuously variable within the range +/- 3m/sec², and is equipped with a maintenance-free silent double brake with contact-free monitoring as well as offering an integrated emergency lowering function. Not only is the winch now quieter, but it complies with the BGV C1 and DGUV V17 standards for manned airframes. The winch meets the requirements of DIN 56950-1 as well as EN 61508 and when combined with Movecat's I-Motion control components conforms to SIL 3.
