They support variable speeds, positioning and load measurement. The system was designed to be extremely flexible. It is possible to set up 7 separate systems or one system with all 44 drives.

Visual act also supplied the mechanics. The fly bars were built to meet C1 safety standards. The chain hoists, from Movecat, are fitted with encoders, double brakes, slack chain protection, and 2 sets of limit switches. The hoists can be mounted in normal or inverted position and fitted with single or 2 part chains.
