SIMPLEPENDANT is a hand held mobile control surface based on the Keba KeTop T200 hardware platform.
The portability of the control pendant offers a flexible working environment for the operator and programmer. For instance; take the Pendant controller down to stage level, plug it to the control port there, and walk out on stage to operate and set up your stage machinery.
Once everything is rigged and programmed, unplug the Pendant at stage level, take it up to your Control Room and plug into the control port in that location and playback the show you just set up and recorded.
Again, safety is designed into the unit, with multi-stage DMB buttons, E-Stops, and other multifunction physical buttons on the Pendant, working in conjunction with the touchscreen running the Simplicity Control System.
