AVW Controls – QAxis

AVW has published further details of its recently launched stage automation control software QAxis, including access to a user manual.

QAxis has had its first project with the UK tour of Jersey Boys and will get its second outing with Phantom of the Opera in Sao Paulo in the summer of 2018.

The QAxis interface allows the operator to see all relevant cue, axis, group and edit information at the same time and allows very quick change from the running environment to the editing environment. After years of experience with Impressario, AVW have picked up on the various requests and suggestions that have come from the real theatre world and have implemented them in their new QAxis software.

AVW were already using Omron Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) for their bespoke control systems and so it made sense to use Omron PLCs as the main hardware. In addition, the flexibility offered by using standard off-the-shelf Omron PLC hardware means that the hardware can be as complex or as simple as it needs to be to get the job done.
