At Turncable Wakepark, visitors and staff can have even more fun, both on land and on the water, thanks to a new lift controller
But wakeboarding – a mixture of water skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding, and surfing – isn’t just fun for pros. Facilities made by Sesitec, like the one at Turncable Park in Thannhausen, Germany, make the sport accessible for everyone. A state-of-the-art automation solution ensures that it isn’t just visitors but also the staff at the wakepark who really enjoy themselves.
Sesitec aims to ensure that it isn’t just visitors but also the staff at the park who enjoy themselves. This includes ensuring that the facility runs reliably, that it’s easy to operate whatever the weather – especially in bright sunlight and even with wet, slippery, or greasy hands covered in sunscreen – and that it provides all the necessary information on each visitor right at the launch platform. The controller unit plays a key role here: It needs to have sufficient contrast and be illuminated brightly enough, automatically and effectively adjust to different lighting conditions, have a sufficiently large screen, and of course be waterproof and robust. The weather also makes high demands both on the control system and the control units: High temperatures in the summer, lightning strikes during thunderstorms, and vibration due to the floating launch platform mean that the equipment needs to withstand a tough environment.
In addition to controlling the lifts, the new control unit was also required to be seamlessly integrated with the checkout system at Turncable, so that the staff at the launch platform knows which customer currently wants to get on the water, what kind of ticket they have, and how often they’ve been out on the boards already. This gives the staff at the lift all the crucial data like name, ticket information, and a photo of the driver on display as soon as the customers identifies themselves with their bar-coded ticket wristband.
Sesitec has been a well-established part of the water sports scene ever since Christian von Lerchenfeld founded the company in 1992. Following over 20 years of innovation and experience in planning and implementation, and after constructing more than 320 installations worldwide, Sesitec has made its name as a leader in the field of two-tower cable wakeboarding.
Due to its passion for wakeboarding, Sesitec has developed a wealth of innovative products and solutions: for example, a new patent-pending drive for the full-size cable, LakeControl, the internally developed System 2.0®, and the Recon remote control.
Sesitec wakeboarding installations are extremely efficient and sustainable, which is why they don’t just offer visitors and professional wakeboarders lots of fun and a unique wakeboarding experience – they’re also very worthwhile for operators. Sesitec stands for top quality and innovation down to the last detail as well as outstanding service for all of its installations. Wakeboarding is the latest trend, and thanks to the outstanding quality of its solutions, Sesitec is building its new wakeboarding facilities all over the world.
Our facilities offer visitors a unique experience while ensuring our customers, or rather, the operators, also enjoy themselves. The facilities must be reliable and most importantly, easy to operate.
