Getting Started

Congratulations on your purchase of the Stagehand Hydraulic from Creative Conners, Inc. The Stagehand Hydraulic is a purpose-built motion controller for hydraulic effects using Spikemark software. The Stagehand Hydraulic is designed to control a single proportional valve connected to a fixed speed hydraulic pump. To turn the pump on and off, you may need additional controls, such as a Stagehand FX. The Stagehand Hydraulic incorporates the valve power supply, safety interlock circuitry, and motion controller all in a 3U rack enclosure.
