Wireless remote-control handsets are the standard means of control for all self-contained lighting hoists – Penny Hydraulics models CT-12, CT-12M, CT-15, CT-15M. A wired handset is supplied as standard with the RLS and RLT systems with the option to specify wireless control, where required.
Penny Hydraulics lighting winch systems can be located remotely to the main lowering point, directly above the light fitting or in a completely separate part of the building. If located in a separate location, a series of pulleys are installed to direct the hoist rope (used to suspend the light fitting) from the hoist location, back to the main lowering point directly above the light fitting.

Other available control options are either hardwired controls with a wall-mounted faceplate, or control via a building management system (BMS) e.g. Crestron or Lutron. Specifiers can input the required method of control through NBS Source.
