Solenoids & Electro Kabukis
EK2 Electro Kabuki System
The EK2 is the latest development of the highly successful Electro Kabuki system. At the heart of each unit is a powerful and dependable magnet which holds a pivoting hook. Thats where you hang your load - whether its for a curtain release, car reveal or a special effect drop. The system has now progressed into being a two circuit system capable of 'Flop and Drops'.
Typically a 'Flop and Drop' may be a flag or banner which firstly drops into view and then drops to the floor at the end of the scene. For maximum versatility the new firing boxes allow you to select either Circuit 1 or 2 or both. Furthermore you can now choose between a Standard Firing Box or the DMX version. By using the DMX firing box you will also maximise the feedback information you gain from the LED status Indicators.
Flints can also supply heavy duty shotbolts and rotary solenoids. For projects outside the UK other voltages can be supplied.

The function of the Electro Kabuki Drop Mechanism is to suspend a load and release it on command from a remote location. Although the equipment is highly reliable it must be remembered that NO SYSTEM IS 100% RELIABLE. The Electro Kabuki must therefore not be used in an application where untimely release of the load might cause injury, death or damage to property. Each mechanism is supplied with an instruction sheet. A full manual is available to download from the downloads section of our website - www.flints.co.uk.
It is the users responsibility to read and understand the manual before using the system. It is important that the person specifying and operating suspension equipment is competant to do so.
