120 ft/min Single Line Performer Flying System

Single Lift Line 120 foot per minute (3 feet per second) performer flying system with single joystick control. Ceiling Sheaves mount to venue supplied truss or venue steel. Poet Technical Services 120 foot per minute motors are available in 3 different configurations: long frame yoyo (for small space installations with fleet angle issues), low profile drum, and mini-frame yoyo. Each of these motors feature 40 feet of lift, 120 feet per minute lift speed, and 400 lb working load limits.

PTS performer flying systems feature frame enclosures, both motor and redundant braking systems, drive shaft over speed monitoring, active line load sensing, drive fault load sensing, dual limits, and programmed acceleration / deceleration ramping.

With the 400 pound lifting rating, this winch can be used for both single and multi-line acrobatic and other performance-related lifting applications. Acrobatic performance applications are limited to the maximum speed of 3 feet per second of lift. For other types of acrobatic applications that require faster lift speeds, we also have single line lifts at 4 feet per second and 10 feet per second.

In single line applications, example theatrical and acrobatic performance uses include:

  • Aerial Silks
  • Duo Aerial Silks
  • Harness Flying
  • Acrobatic Rope (Corde Lisse)
  • Lira (Cerceaux)
  • Prop flights

In multi-line applications, the system uses a clew to separate into 2 or 4 separate lift lines. Example theatrical applications include:

  • Solo Trapeze (two lines and one aerial performer)
  • Duo Trapeze (two lines and two aerial performers)
  • Aerial Prop Lift (single line or multiple lines)
  • Non-rotating angel flight (vertical lift over the stage with the performer facing towards the audience with no rotation capability)
