Monash University, IT Research Facility

ITE had the privilege of working alongside architects DS Architects to complete four Motorized Camera Grid Systems, curtains and a fixed pipe grid at Monash Uni, IT Research Facility.

Each of the grids are independently flown via bespoke designed ITE Pile Winding Winches in box truss grid configurations. Each grid features integrated cable management systems and a simple intuitive wall mounted control system. Services to the grids included DMX, data and 10A unswitched power and associated data patch and power patch panel. The challenge with this project was ensuring maximum upper level height as the room elevation was just over 3 metres. Automating the grids provides complete flexibility to position the grids at any height throughout the drift range.

ITE custom designed, manufactured, installed & commissioned the entire system to allow for flexible camera positioning systems to monitor the performance of athletes and the like.

Some of the safety features included: slack wire detection, operational limits, overtravel limits and overload protection.
