PIPA-AwardwebMovecat is delighted to have received a P.I.P.A. Award at the Prolight + Sound 2018. The P.I.P.A. Awards are presented by over 40 international trade magazines to honour the best products at the trade fair in 13 categories. Due to the fact that they represent the views of industry specialists from all over the world, they are often described as the "Grammys of the pro audio and lighting industries".

Movecat won its P.I.P.A. Award in the category "Best Stage Technology" for the development of the Touring Rack 2 in the TD8 series. The prestigious trophy was presented to Movecat CEO Andrew Abele, who commented: "We are extremely gratified by the recognition of this development, with which we have set new standards in compactness, user-friendliness and safety for motor controllers in the BGV D8 and IGVW SQ P2 D8 Plus categories."

The All-in-One Touring Racks in the Movecat TD8 series comply with the EN 60204-32, EN 13849-1 and VDE 0113 guidelines. The racks unite all the control components required for operation in a compact, shock-absorbent road case. The integrated power station not only assumes responsibility for the distribution and protection of the controller units but also monitors the power supply and even corrects automatically the rotating field, should that ever prove necessary. The safety strategy is complimented by an intelligent bypass concept as well as the tried-and-tested Movecat M-Link system, which provides for the combined operation of up to twelve TD8 racks and a maximum of 384 drives in a network.
