Detailed Description


General Description

IMI POWER–RIGGER was specially designed for heavy two seaters and heavy open class gliders since there was big demand of our customers for such solution in our high quality of fabrication, which is already well known. We decided to make the device without compromises, the basic design was developed and engineered to be overdimensioned for high loads of wings far over 100kg since the very beginning. Of course we offer also the smaller POWER–RIGGER for any modern single seater, it uses the same overdimensioned chassis and actuators with only minor modifications (lower height and smaller width and of course another wing holders).


All types of POWER–RIGGER bodies are compatible with all available wing holder types of IMI–Gliding, we have wide offer of 6 types for different glider classes today. The actuators were developed in cooperation with one of the best world electric actuator producers according to our specification of travel, strength, high speed operation, inbuilt limit switches and also durability (metal gear, IP66 protection). The result is brilliant and we are happy that the long development lead into perfect machine which shows very good results right from the first testing.

We also decided to equip this machine with some clever function, which were not introduced by any rigging tool before, for example battery voltage indication, charging of the battery in or outside of the body, toggle switches for actuator control without the remote control transmitter, brakes for both wheels for use at the concrete/tarmac surface.


Two Seater Version

Height adjustable between 82–108cm, main wheel axle 940mm, recommended wing holders: type “D” (Duo Discus, Janus, DG500, DG1000), type “DN” (Arcus, ASG32), type “DX” for trainers (ASK21, Twin Astir I, II, III and similar). Example: for Arcus M you need POWER–RIGGER DN1500H (DN wing holder, 1500N actuators, H = high body)

Single Seater

height adjustable between 74–100cm, main wheel axle 860mm, recommended wing holders: type “S” (older club/standard/15m class gliders) or type “SN” (modern non–flapped and flapped single seaters with thin airfoils), type “SX” most modern gliders with small chord length (EB29R, JS–3 and similar). Example: for ASG29 you need POWER–RIGGER SN1500L (SN wing holder, 1500N actuators, L= lower single seater body)
