Not every venue can utilize linear rigging-system solutions like the original compression tube Prodigy hoists. Buildings, arenas or houses of worship that have domed or peaked roofs, historic buildings, or theaters with plaster ceilings require a special solution. That’s
why ETC created the Prodigy® P75 Self Climber, which contains the same technology as all of our Prodigy hoists, but housed in a specially designed, heavy-duty TOMCAT® truss built to work around oddly shaped ceilings, roofs, tight spaces and corners.
The P75 Self Climber truss is 20.5” x 20.5” with spigot-style connections, compatible with standard TOMCAT 20.5” truss, and can span upwards of 70 feet horizontally with a maximum of eight ¼” lift lines. It has a standard Working Load Limit (WLL) of 2,000lbs (900 kg), up to 75ft (22m)
of vertical travel, and a maximum of eight ¼” (6.35mm) lift lines. Like all Prodigy hoists, features like slack-line detection and load cell come standard, as well as the ability to easily integrate with other ETC Rigging technology, including controllers such as QuickTouch®, QuickTouch+® and Foundation®, as
well as Prodigy P1, EXO, P75, and Vortek NXT hoists.
