The CD1 Master Control Desk manages all hoists in the system. Individual machines and groups can be selected on the touch screen to program motion sequences. Various group movements such as asynchronous and synchronous movements, time destination drives are possible. Two joysticks are used to execute the movements. An optional second screen visualizes the altitude and individual axes in real time.
To operate the system from your personal preference, CD1 master control desks connect to a plugbox which can be set up at a place of your choosing. By default GENESIS systems support two plugboxes which can be extended with masterplugboxes to a total of up to 6.
