Showstopper 4 is the heart of your emergency stop system.

Built from industrial safety-rated components, Showstopper 4 ensures all motion halts at the press of a button.  To operate, every Stagehand must receive a green-light signal from Showstopper.

Showstopper Base

Where it all begins. The mothership. E-stop Grand Central Station. Showstopper 4 Base is a rack-mountable device that powers the emergency-stop contactors of up to 10 Stagehands.


Showstopper Base also connects up to three accessory devices to expand your emergency stop topology. Add in Remote e-stop buttons, a Showstopper Consolette, Showstopper Hub, and lots more.


All this packed in a snug 2U rack-mountable case.

All Clear for Take Off

If your stage automation was an Apollo space mission, the Showstopper 4 system is mission control giving a Go/ No-Go for take off.

A green light means you're good for take off. A No-Go aborts the mission and nothing moves.

Who Goes There?

Showstopper ID

Is the e-stop button in the trap room pressed? How about the grid? No need to wonder (or wander), Showstopper 4 can tell you the status of every emergency stop button in your venue.

Each button has a unique, configurable identifier to take the guesswork out of recovering from an emergency stop. Every ID can be named in Spikemark then grouped and organized however you desire to make it quick and easy to pinpoint the problem.

Control at your fingertips

Do you like physical buttons for running cues? A joystick for jogging motors? Showstopper 4 Consolette is for you.

Small enough to fit on any operator’s console backstage, but packed with all the controls you need to run a show or wrangle a load in or maintenance call.

Emergency Stop

Like brakes on a sports car, stopping is just as important as moving. Showstopper Consolette connects to the Showstopper Base to add an addition e-stop button, jogging functions, and cue controls. Initiating an e-stop from the Consolette stops  all motion.


When the Consolette is plugged into the Showstopper Base, the e-stop circuit becomes part of the complete Showstopper e-stop loop. Any red emergency stop button will stop the show. The Consolette is labeled in Spikemark as an e-stop node and easily and quickly identified to release the e-stop button once conditions are safe.

Automation, Go

Really feel the click

When you gotta go, you gotta GO. There is nothing like the solid click of a button to know you’re making something move. Consolette’s buttons provide clear tactile feedback, so you know when a cue has been triggered.

Beyond the Go button, you’ll have basic cue functions for Next Cue, Previous Cue, and Jump to Cue. Consolette is an operator’s command station (along with the Spikemark computer).

When safety is paramount and automation is only a part of a show-controlled ensemble of technology, Consolette can be used as a Dead Man’s switch. Configure Consolette to Hold To Run, and the button must remain engaged to enable and trigger a cue.

Jog It

Better than a nudge or a tweak

When you know the position when you see the position, it’s time for a jog. Or when it’s time for some automation hands on time (load-in, rehearsal, work calls) and you do not need to run a cue, it’s time for a jog.

Consolette let’s you jog any motor, group of motors, or multi-selected motors with a fine or coarse level of granularity. The fine mode let’s the jog wheel move your motor at 1/10″ per click. The coarse mode move your motor at 1″ per click.

Or go whole hog with your jog and grab the paddle and adjust the speed with the porportial flick of the wrist.

Locking Connectors. Better Cable.

Do you know what will ruin a load-in? A busted connector for a Consolette. Fortunatly, that’s not going to be an issue. Locking, industrial connectors stand up to the demands of backstage life. Showstopper Consolette uses a Neutrik etherCON connector and an industrial rectangular connector to make sure the signal keep flowing from Consolette to Base.


How far away is your trap room from your control booth?  Showstopper 4 Accessory Cables are made with 20AWG twisted-pair conductors so you can drive long distances without data loss. Up to 9000 feet (just shy of two miles)!
