Manual MTS pantographs

MTS’s manual pantographs are used to precisely position lighting, audio and video equipment.

The abbreviation SZM 25-60 stands for cable pantograph (manual) with extensions between 2500mm and 6000 mm.

The load capacity of these pantographs is up to 30 kg.

Customized adaptations of the lifting devices can be made at any time upon request.


Product Highlights
Technical Specifications


Through the use of pantographs, each luminaire can be individually controlled. This allows an enormous flexibility in the design of the light.

The MTS pantographs are made of aluminum rectangular profiles with particularly high mechanical strength and precision. In the retracted state, the overall height is minimized. The extension of the pantographs reaches up to 6m depending on the design. If a larger stroke is required, the use of MTS telescopes or MTS Hoist systems should be used.

The powder-coated scissors of the MTS pantographs ensure a maximum of stability. Two steel ropes with a diameter of 2.8 mm serve as support. The drive is self-locking, maintenance-free and technically oversized. The guide elements on the upper and lower holders of the scissors ensure precise pull-out and pull-in with minimal torsion and radial play. The large bending radius of the suspension system prevents wear and cable breakage. The power and data feed to the lower end of the pantograph is safely guided outside the scissors by and held in place via durable plastic clips. A Schuko connection is provided as standard, alternatively a CEE socked is available. In addition it is possible to proviede a DMX outlet at the lower end of the pantograph.

The load can be attatched via a standardized DIN TV capsule with eyelet for a safety cable. The manual pantographs can reliably lift and lower loads up to 30kg. A 28 mm DIN TV spigot is provided for the upper attachment. This allows the pantograph to be mounted to various trolleys.

The up/down movement of the pantographs can be induced via the bell by means of rod control (by hand or by machine).

The MTS pantographs fulfill all relevant safety regulations such as the stricktest german safety norms DGUV regulation 17 (formerly BGV C1, formerly VBG 70) as well as DIN 56950-2 (formerly DIN 15560)
