Jands Staging products are found in theatres throughout Australia. Jands Staging are well-known suppliers/contractors in Australia’s staging market. Jands provide the SAX-P1 hoist controller.
The SAX-P1 provides up/down position controls plus a host of other functions including programmable speed control function with a rotary encoder, the ability to store and recall up to six preset positions with related speed information, illuminated E Stop button and a visual bar graph, which shows both the location of the batten and the preset position, and the speed of the hoist.
The position bar graph and speed LED bar graphs continuously indicate the current parameters of the batten being moved. The position bar graph can be set to display the batten height plus the height of the attached scenery element. The SAX-P1 controller offers accurate and safe set move.
When driven to a preset position, the batten automatically accelerates to the preset speed, then decelerate to a smooth stop as it approaches and finally reaches the required position.
The SAX-P1 controller can be used with any of the Jands standard hoists including the H250-PV and H500-PV pile winding hoists (250kg and 500kg respectively) and the high speed H650AC drum hoist (650kg).
