KINETIC LIGHTS presents the Winch LED. In its fourth generation the Winch LED becomes even more powerful and versatile.

With a faster processor and new firmware the unit now provides full real-time control from any 3rd party lighting console or control software. A simplified DMX mapping table makes it easy to program and control.

Ultra precise 16bit positioning is guaranteed to the millimetre at variable speeds of up to 0.5 meter per second.

The new Winch LED communicates its status and position back to the control unit 30 times per second. This allows for extra secure operation and additional advanced features like projection mapping of moving objects or synchronized movement of one object connected to multiple winches. The reinforced powered cable is fully retractable and features a new fast lock power connector at the end. All Winch LED are fully DGUV17/BGV C1 and CE compliant.
