04 Atlas


TAIT’S NAV:Atlas is a control interface designed primarily for stage management and maintenance personnel. It can be wall-or rack-mounted and operates any equipment connected to NAV:Net. Custom user interface screens show relevant functions for different types of operators and access levels, turning a complex system in a similar user interface.

05 RS4


The NAV: RS4 is a central controller for the TAIT Navigator Automation Platform. It manages all aspects of the control system including motion control, cueing, user security, remote assistance, and the emergency stop system. It can interface with many other entertainment systems including lighting, video/projection, audio, CCTV, and SFX. It is typically installed in a central control rack and connected to the machine control cabinets to control the axes.

06 Compass


TAIT’s NAV:Compass is a Navigator-embedded, handheld device that allows for remote control of devices connected to the Navigator Automation SystemTM. It features a simple interface for operating any equipment connected to NAV:Net and individual logins allow for customized levels of privileges that control access. Custom user interface screens show relevant functions for different types of operators and access levels. Three modes are available: move, jog and cue. Move mode sends an axis or group of axes to a precise location. Jog mode allows the user to manually move an axis or group of axes. Cue mode programs simple cues with an axis or groups of axes.

07 Polaris


TAIT’s NAV:Polaris is a modular, networked console that can operate with multiple Polaris consoles or as a standalone console. It features a large touchscreen interface and a multitude of channel options. The flexible channel options allow users to customize inputs, creating the ideal programming and show interface for each specific show. Users have the ability to pre program shows with integrated 3D pre-visualization to allow for offline previewing, editing and exporting of movies.

08 Nav ESA


ESA is a network-based, master emergency stop controller that is capable of supporting 90 devices and is compliant with the highest safety standards. It is FSOE compliant which reduces the requirement for a separate Estop connection for external devices. Bypass is available for all channels with utilization possible only after internal safety checks are complete. The ESA is also EN 61508 SIL 3 and ISO 13849 PLe compliant with continuous hardware and software validation. Connections are made through the same Ethernet switches and cables as used in Navigator network. The controller can interface with legacy ESE controllers using an optional expansion card.

Nav Point

Nav Point

The NAV: Point allows for the connection of any of the Navigator consoles in the system. It also features an emergency stop button with optional reset and enable buttons. An optional pendant connector allows for a NAV: Estoppendant to be connected for an additional emergency stop or to enable input.

Kinesys Pulse

Kinesys Pulse™ drive with Navigator Infinity™ Panel

The Kinesys Pulse drives offer 4kW or 22kW of powerful, yet simple-to-use, variable-speed drive for precision machine control, whilst facilitating a SIL3 level of system-safety. Kinesys Pulse drives plug & play with the Kinesys Pulse Winch range. Manual controls on the front panel, as standard, provide easy local control of the machinery: the built-in Navigator Infinity panel features a 7” touchscreen displaying diagnostic data and machine status, with the facility to customise the contents for each installation’s requirements. The drives are completely connectorised for easy modular installation, (e.g. cables can be installed separately, in advance, allowing them to be fully tested before the drives even arrive). Pulse is designed to work directly with epiQ™Consoles.
