DMX Winches

Wahlberg Winches come in sizes from 1Kg up to a powerful 50Kg load rating. Simple to operate via DMX. This family of winches is perfect for providing fast and easy light-duty scenery automation using DMX to set position and trim points, write movement cues, or create stunning motion “choreography.” Use multiple winches to create a fully automated contour curtain, where each lift line in the drape is controlled independently and can be programmed to different looks via DMX console.

A variant of the Winch 10, the Winch 10 LX allows electrical power to be run down the lifting cable enabling you to electrify the element being hung, such as a chandelier, lighted sign, or moon box. The Wahlberg Winches are not intended for use hoisting line sets or other critical and load-bearing rigging elements.
