General Purpose Hoists

The Prodigy™ General Purpose Hoists provide a simple, low cost way to lift heavy scenery or curtains for storage or for production.

These hoists resolve space and access challenges for schools, nightclubs, houses of worship and other places where there is no mean to access scenery or drapes overhead.

Product Features:

  • Lightweight - less load on the building and easier to install.
  • No additional lateral forces imposed on the building - lateral forces neutralized in the compression tube.
  • Anywhere-positioning of loft blocks along compression tube so lift line placement is not dependent on building structural layout.
  • Programmable QuickTouch® Control Panel with user-friendly LCD readout of hoist "name," hoist function, loading profile and operational status, preset position and current load.
  • Easy limit switch adjustment with LED visible light indicators.
  • Low noise operation.
  • UL Listed

Stage & FOH Electrics Hoists

The Prodigy™ Fixed Speed Stage Electrics hoists provide a low-cost way to lift heavy lights for storage or for production. They are especially useful for front of house where the extreme low profile of the system allows the hoist and cable management system to disappear into the plenum in the smallest space requirements in the industry.

Product Features:

  • Compact Cable Management System - Front of house and stage electrics hoists store in 30" of height yet feed up to 48 20-Amp circuits.
  • Unique Prodigy Hybrid Drum - Powerhead manages up to 7 liftlines plus one operational line for cable management in a machine 1/3 the size of other hoists.
  • Higher Duty Cycles - Minimal braking pressure significantly reduces brake pad temperature and increases duty cycle of the hoist.
  • Prewired connector strip for up to 48 20-Amp circuits with up to 2 DMX or a CAT5 outlet.

Houselight Hoists

The Prodigy™ Houselight Hoist can span the width of the auditorium, allowing houselights to be placed anywhere over a 105' width. The distro trough may be lowered (with a push of a button) for re-lamping or servicing the houselight fixtures. The unique cable management system allows this hoist to be easily hidden between the clouds of the auditorium ceiling.

Product Features:

  • Barriered Wiring Trough (optional) for separate houselight and emergency lighting circuits.
  • DMX or Ethernet data wiring available.
  • Built-in Limit Switches and Encoders with visual setting indicators for more efficient installation.
  • Load-profiling.
  • Built-in slack line detector standard on all hoists.
  • Easy limit switch adjustment with visible LED light indicators.
  • Distribution strip supports the Pantograph and manages flat feeder cable.

Variable Speed Hoists

Prodigy Low Profile Hoists provide a safe, fast, efficient way to move scenery, stage drapes, projection screens and other elements during performances. These hoists are designed to safely move backstage loads and even front-of-house battens above the audience, performers and technicians at speeds from 0 to 180 feet per minute.

The hoist design minimizes the space required for machinery. The Powerhead is more than 50% shorter than competing systems and can yield at least 40% less force on the structure than competing systems.

ETC's Prodigy variable speed hoist is manufactured to operate from 0 to 180 feet per minute with overall hoist capacities of 1200 pounds and Working Load Limits (WLL) of 1000 pounds.

Product Features:

  • Lightweight - less load on the building and easier to install.
  • No additional lateral forces imposed on the building - lateral forces neutralized in the compression tube.
  • Anywhere-positioning of the loft blocks along Compression Tube so lift line placement is not dependent on building's structural layout.
  • May be attached to almost any structure, including bar joists, that can support the weight of the hoist + lifted load and stopping forces.
  • Operated via programmable, multi-function Foundation Controller
  • Easy limit switch adjustment with visible LED indicators
  • Low noise operation
