KINETIC LIGHTS Winch AC is the most advanced powered cable motor winch on the market. With a travel height of 7 meters at a variable speed of up to 0.5 meter per second, the Winch AC brings unparalleled performance to art, interior, stage, show and event lifting and lighting applications. The primary use of this high precision hoist system is the synchronized spatial animation of large arrays of tethered AC light elements.

The Winch AC’s motion is fully real-time controllable via DMX from the KINETIC LIGHTS KL_Control Software and external lighting desks, mixing consoles or audio applications. The AC power on the cable can be controlled by external means.
