Control made easy
Made for entertainment
ProLyft AETOS controllers for electric chain hoists are designed to meet the increasingly exacting demands of the entertainment market. The controllers are designed in accordance with the latest standards, using a user-friendly layout, reducing the risk of operator failures, in either simple or complex lifting situations.

ProLyft AETOS controllers have been engineered with an understanding of the needs of rigging operators. The front panel layout and the functionality of the buttons have been carefully designed to meet the demands of daily practice in lifting, where any selection mistake can create an overload situation.

Introducing the ProLyft THUJA network system
In conjunction with the AETOS range of electric chain hoist controllers, ProLyft introduces the THUJA network. THUJA is a digital data network for controlling lifting equipment in the entertainment industry; safe enough for lifting above people, simple enough for touring use. The THUJA network will enable far-reaching possibilities for future control solutions. The THUJA network allows links between AETOS controllers, creating an extended system, offering the ability to connect remote controls, read feedback from hoists and connect extra E-stops. 

The AETOS PRO controller range
AETOS PRO controllers are designed for:

  • Professional rental companies, demanding a flexible control system to facilitate the frequent change of lifting configurations, offering both easy operation and a clear overview of the selected and operated hoists
  • Permanent installations, where controllers are centralised and operated remotely; and where there is a growing demand for multiple remotes and E-stops
  • Use with touch screen remotes, enabling you to create groups of hoists or patch your hoists to any control position.


Remote control:
The unique AETOS remote control has 24 channels. Its ergonomic design makes it easy to handle and operate. The up and down buttons are situated on both the left and right sides of the panel to facilitate both left and right handed operation. The remote control connects to the controller using the THUJA network connection (7pin XLR). Indicators on the front panel show errors, selections and availability.



The AETOS BASIC controller range
AETOS BASIC controllers are designed for applications that do not require advanced technology, offering a safe, simple, robust and effective control solution.
