Making the Connections

Although the Revolver is offered in several wiring configurations, the basic principles are the same for all versions. Any Stagehand requires input power, Network and Showstopper connections to function. Once you’ve got those, connect the Revolver to the Stagehand.

Connect the Revolver motor & brake power to the power connections and signal to the signal connections. The Revolver Pro utilizes a machine mounted J-Box while the Apprentice and Classic configurations include 10’ tails for the motor, brake and encoder connections.

Motor & Brake

If your Revolver is wired for Stagehand Apprentice or Pro control, the single Motor/Brake locking connector is all you need for the motor and brake connections.

If your Revolver is wired for Classic connectors, you’ll need to connect the L15-30 to the Stagehand for Motor power and the ML2 to the Stagehand for the Brake.

Signal

If your Revolver is wired for Apprentice or Pro control, connecting the signal cable to the machine and Stagehand is all you need to get the encoder signal back to the Stagehand - the limits are jumped in the machine j-box.

If your machine is wired for Classic connectors, you’ll need to connect your encoder to your Stagehand with the 7 pin Amphenol connector and you will need to install limit jumpers at the Stagehand.
