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.


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.

With special LED indicators

  • LED indicators for “power”, “breaker trip” and “operational”.
  • LED indicators to show the selection per switch.
  • LED output automatically adjusts to light conditions:
    • Bright in the sun.
    • Soft in the darkness of a stage.



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.

I work in the Sonoval company in Switzerland, and we place great importance on safety and compliance. What we really liked at Prolyte is that, like us, the quality of work is impeccable. During the training we were able not only to meet the very friendly people, but also to deepen the collaboration already present with Prolyte and their ways of doing.
