KINETIC LIGHTS presents the new Winch XS. In its second generation the Winch XS becomes even more powerful and versatile. It is the most advanced small-sized powered cable motor winch on the market. With a travel height of 7 meters at a variable speed of up to 0.6 meter per second the Winch XS brings unparalleled performance to art, interior, stage, show and event lifting and lighting applications. The primary use of this high precision hoists is the synchronized spatial animation of large arrays of small tethered LED lights or helium-filled balloon light elements.

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