Elevation 1+

Elevation1+ is the variable speed chain hoist control solution from Kinesys.

The Elevation1+ removes the need for large quantities of cabling and permits a number of motors and controllers to be supplied by single power and data cables.

Elevation1+ together with customised versions of the most popular models of chain hoist, such as Lodestar, Liftket and GIS, represents the most flexible and reliable variable speed ‘open system’ available in the market.

Easy to install, simple to configure and with an ergonomic and compact design, it has the ability to ramp start, ramp stop, position and vary the speed of a chain hoist for maximum creative effect.

With the addition of a simple adapter cable, the converted motors can be used as standard fixed speed chain hoists allowing maximum flexibility of motor use.

The Elevation1+ can be controlled by K2 or Vector software packages and interfaces with other Kinesys products for a totally integrated show control system.

Elevation1+ is available in both US and European voltage variants, with multiple fixings for hook clamps or half couplers which allow for a variety of mounting orientations.
