AC-ET Sets XLNT Distribution Deal in Motion

24th August 2010

A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd’s Rigging division have been appointed as a UK & Ireland distributor for the XLNT Advanced Technologies PowerMotion DS8 Pro Series of solid state motor controllers for the entertainment industry.

Designed primarily for top flight rental applications but equally suited to fixed installations, the XLNT DS8 Pro and Pro Plus Series brings something completely new to the entertainment rigging motor controller market - a unique combination of solid state reliability, versatility and affordability.

Its development was a direct response to the growing needs of XLNT's rental customers, who wanted to improve the flexibility and reliability of their standard hoist motor controllers without the expense of custom-built products. As a result, the DS8 Series provides the feature set, build quality, safety and reliability of a high-end controller at a mid-level price that makes it affordable for daily use.

Under the agreement, AC-ET will provide full sales service and support for the XLNT motor control range and will be able to offer equipment demonstrations both on-site or at the company’s in-house facilities.

The DS8 Pro Series provides every essential option for controlling standard electrical entertainment chain hoists, with more advanced options and total multi-unit flexibility available in the Pro Plus version, including the separate DSR8 8 motor or DSR8x8 64 motor hand remote. Both types offer a major benefit to professional riggers – maintenance free reliability thanks to the solid state design.

Each DS8 model can control up to eight chain hoists and features a solid state MCB per individual motor / channel. They provide adjustable maximum power output up to 9 Amps - an industry-leading output for hoists up to 4kW. The highest level of safety and protection is provided by the integrated PL D, ISO 13849-1, CWA 15902-1 and SIL2 compliant Emergency Stop System.

Adam Beaumont, Sales Manager of the A.C. Rigging division, commented: “I was first introduced to XLNT motor controllers at PLASA 2009. The units offer some really innovative features that make them ideal for both the rental companies and installations alike. They are very well made, using high quality components and are a great addition to our range of top quality professional rigging products.”

Marc van der Wel, Commercial Director of XLNT Advanced Technologies B.V. commented: “We are very pleased to appoint A.C. Entertainment Technologies to service the UK and Irish Entertainment customers in the best way and expect to make this partnership a big success.”

AC-ET will be showing the XLNT DS8 Series range at the PLASA Show (Stand E-110). A.C. Rigging is a division of A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd.
