Stage Technology

Today’s concerts or plays present stage designers with ever new challenges. A multitude of props and stage sets have to be moved as quickly as possible, lighting effects have to be positioned precisely and entire stages have to be rotated.

Rotary limit switches and slip rings for theatres

Slip Rings

As a result of increasing digitalization and the wide range of possibilities in the field of stage and event technology, the demands on slip rings have also risen significantly in recent years. Extensive camera and video technology with high resolutions, unusual lighting and sound technology for large productions, multi-axially moving stage sets in theatres and event halls, technically well-equipped exhibition stands and highly automated and networked stage technology are just some of the current topics that also have a direct influence on the technology of our slip rings.

Rotary Limit Switches

Switching off and travel pickup at the individual winches is almost exclusively by rotary limit switches. The end positions are limited by the switching contacts on the cam switch unit. More precise position detection is possible by evaluating encoder or potentiometer signals.

For use in stage technology, the special BGV-C1 approval of the devices is required.

Enabling Switches

On theatre stages people, the actors, often meet machines, the stage technology. This inevitably leads to injury potential.

In order to minimize the risk, it is suitable to use an enabling switch in some places. The functionality of our enabling switches is 3-step or based on 3 positions. The working contacts are actuated in the middle position. For this purpose we have implemented a clearly perceptible pressure point on the design side. In case of panic action / injury the operator would either press firmly (3rd stage) or release the handle (1st stage). Both times the working contacts would be deactivated and thus the system would be stopped. The 2nd stage must therefore be actively operated and held.

Industry Catalogue

In order to give you a good and simple overview of our products for stage technology, B-COMMAND has created a branch catalogue especially designed for stage technology. In this catalogue you will find all information about the products for stage and theatre technology.
