KINETIC LIGHTS Winch Wire is one of the most advanced steel wire motor winches on the market. With a travel height of 7 meters at a variable speed of up to 0.5 meter per second, the Winch Wire brings unparalleled performance to art, interior, stage, show and event lifting applications. The main use of this high precision winch system is the synchronized spatial animation of large arrays of tethered objects.

The Winch Wire is fully real-time controllable via DMX from the KINETIC LIGHTS KL_Control Software and external lighting desks, mixing consoles or audio applications.
