“I could not help but notice how easy it would be to implement hoist side pull detection with cord reels already providing power” Jeanine noted. “This would be a simple and reliable way of detecting a chain hoist not operating the other hoist(s).”

Laser-View Technologies’ Crane Sentry® Hoist Side Pull Detection can be adapted to theater rigging to ensure that the rigging is lifting and lowering evenly. With this system installed, theater companies can ensure they’re working to avoid damage to the hoist, any nearby equipment, and the stage crew that may be operating the rigging throughout the show.
