We are happy to introduce the new Electric ONE MAN RIGGING SYSTEM from IMI-Gliding, Czech Republic. Like by the introduction of the mechanical IMI-OMRS in 2008 we give the new tool our own name:

the POWER-RIGGER

 

The POWER-RIGGER was specially designed for heavy twoseaters and heavy open class gliders since there was big demand of our customers for such solution in our high quality of fabrication, which is already well known. We decided to make the device without compromisses, the basic design was developed and engineered to be overdimensioned for high loads of wings far over 100kg since the very beginning. Of course we offer also the smaller POWER-RIGGER for any modern singleseater, it uses the same overdimensioned chassis and actuators with only minor modifications (lower height and smaller width and of course another wing holders).

 

All types of POWER-RIGGER bodies are compatible with all available wing holder types of IMI-Gliding, we have wide offer of 6 types for different glider classes today. The actuators were developed in cooperation with one of the best world electric actuator producers according to our specification of travel, strength, high speed operation, inbuilt limit switches and also durability (metal gear, IP66 protection). The result is brilliant and we are happy that the long development lead into perfect machine which shows very good results right from the first testing.

We also decided to equip this machine with some clever function, which were not introduced by any rigging tool before, for example battery voltage indication, charging of the battery in or outside of the body, toggle switches for actuator control without the remote control transmitter, brakes for both wheels for use at the concrete/termac surfece.

 

Specification:

  1. Twoseater version:  height adjustable between 82-108cm, main wheel axle 940mm, recommended wing holders: type „D“ (Duo Discus, Janus, DG500, DG1000), type „DN“ (Arcus, ASG32), type „DX“ for trainers (ASK21, Twin Astir I, II, III and similar). Example: for Arcus M you need POWER-RIGGER DN1500H (DN wing holder, 1500N actuators, H = high body)
  1. Singlesetaer verison: height adjustable between 74-100cm, main wheel axle 860mm, recommended wing holders: type „S“ (older club/standard/15m class gliders) or type „SN“ (modern non-flapped and flapped singleseaters with thin airfoils), type „SX“ most modern gliders with small chord length (EB29R, JS-3 and similar). Example: for ASG29 you need POWER-RIGGER SN1500L (SN wing holder, 1500N acutators, L= lower singleseater body)
  1. Custom made body: we offer the fabrication of custom defined height of the body for rare gliders or microlight airplanes (height adjustable 78-104cm, 102-128cm etc.)

 

Features:

  • 2 axis, 2x custom made high quality linear actuators, 1500N max. force each, metal gear
  • big travel - 260mm vertically and horizontally, very useful for uneven surface
  • high speed 12mm/s (10mm/s under full load)
  • IP 66 water protection on actuators

 

  • removable battery 12V/2,9Ah, for more than 1hour of intensive use
  • charging in body via charging socket or outside the body, 2nd battery available optionally
  • intelligent charger included (230V), 12V car charger available optionally
  • battery voltage indication on the control panel for quick check of battery voltage

 

  • 2x remote control transmitter, IP 66 water protected
  • 2x manual toggle switch on the body for actuator control without Remote control transmitters (if lost, damaged, battery of transmitter empty)
  • sensitive RC reciever unit in the body in IP66 water protected case

 

  • singleseater / twoseater version (different height of the body and width of the axle)
  • 6 types of compatible wing holders for different glider classes available (including trainers)
  • solid aluminium construction for max. load 125kg, tested with 180kg load without damage of actuator or structure
  • completely dismantable in seconds by 6 pins, no screwing
  • the POWER RIGGER body fits into any IMI wing holder, simple storing and transport
  • huge air inflated wheels 320x100mm for any terrain
  • brakes for both wheels for use on the concrete/tarmac surface

 

Technology:

  • 3D modelling, laser cutting, CNC machining, TIG welding technology, top surface treatment (all aluminium parts anodised, steel parts galvanised, GRP parts coated with gelcoat)
  • engineered and manufactured in Czech Republic, 2 years full warranty
  • the best equipped tool for one man rigging ever built - the POWER RIGGER by IMI-Gliding
  • from the producer with huge experience with glider rigging, from the producer who already delivered more than 1.500 mechanical One Man Rigging System units for many different gliders worldwide
