South Africa:

Gearhouse Splitbeam has invested in an Elion Ron StageMaster 6000 G4 Wireless System for its rigging rental stock. The purchase coincides with a new production of Phantom of the Opera which started a world tour in January this year in Manila, Philippines.

‘The 10-load cell system, that we purchased from DWR Distribution, can be remotely monitored in conjunction with the wireless receiver and Apple compatible software via Bluetooth technology,’ said Alistair Kilbee, managing director at Splitbeam. ‘The Eilon load cells are easy to install due to the perpendicular design and wireless capabilities.’

The Eilon Ron StageMaster 6000 System allows for ‘always on’ wireless continuous monitoring, which was the main reason Splitbeam selected the 6000 series. ‘This means that the load on the motors can be monitored as the motors are moving scenery in and out to ensure safe load dispersion between the motors,’ explained Kilbee. ‘The load cells have a battery life of up to 5,000 hours, so we can confidently install them on a touring production where they will be in the rig for a month at a time. Each monitoring system has the capability to monitor up to 200 load cells, allowing us to easily purchase additional load cells to add to our current system. With over 100 of our Prolyft Aetos Motors on the [Phantom of the Opera] tour, the Eilon StageMaster 6000 system provides peace of mind by preventing and warning of potential overloading and thus putting safety first.’
