Faster load ins, smoother rehearsals, safer stages - wire your facility to take full advantage of stage automation. A variety of hardwired receptacles reduces the manpower and time running cables for any automated effect. Skilled technicians can plug in a motion controller or control device and get moving. Set up time is reduced by as much as 30% - that amounts to reduced labor cost & more time putting on a show.
Permanently installed remote boxes distributed throughout the facility connect to a centrally located control rack and form the backbone of a nimble network capable of supporting your most complicated automation needs. The remote boxes provide connectivity for Stagehand drives, control devices (like the Spikemark Pendant or Consolette), and distributed emergency stop mushroom buttons.
The Control Connection allows for any control device to be connected at any convenient position. Easily drop in a new Spikemark computer, Stage Manager, Consolette, or Pendant without re-running cables.
Each box includes one Showstopper 3 Accessory output and two Ethernet receptacles, which makes connecting control devices or e-stop accessories a cinch.
It even supports connecting a Showstopper 3 Hub to support additional production automation.
It is available as surface mount as well as flush mount box depending on the installation needs and includes standard nomenclature as as well customized ID numbers.
Your electrical contractor can pull wiring through conduit to connects remote boxes to a control rack. Racked equipment can include an any of the below equipment along with a network switch, UPS power supply and the Showstopper 3 Base.
