Fixed Speed Motor Starter

Fixed Speed Motor Starter

Intelligent third-party machine control

Ideal for both retrofits and new installations, the Fixed-Speed Motor Starter makes it possible to integrate third-party rigging systems (for example, line shaft and drum winches, curtain motors, projection screens and banner hoists) with ETC Prodigy® hoist solutions; unified under the control of ETC's QuickTouch® or Foundation® families of rigging controllers.

This small, stand-alone unit is easily installed in place of old motor-control equipment using preexisting wiring - it even supplies power to any of the QuickTouch® family controllers.
