Pantograph Top 2C

MSRP: $705.00 USD

The Manfrotto FF3512N86 Pantograph Top 2C is part of the famous and intuitive Sky Track System. Sky Track is the rail system that allows you to get lights, cables and gear off the studio floor and light your space from above. The Top 2C pantograph is made of lightweight aluminium (P-Al MgSi UNI 3569) and manufactured according to DIN 15560-46. The Top 2C has a closed length of 27 cm/10.6 inch while the max extension is 200 cm/78.7 inch. The attachments at both ends of the pantograph are 16 mm/ 5/8", male on the bottom and female on the top. The load is supported by a steel cable of 2 mm Ø diameter (safety factor 12). Loads up to 12 kg/26.4 lb can be suspended using only the patented friction device, while loads up to a maximum of 18 kg/39.6 lb require the use of optional springs. The pantograph can be regulated to keep suspended loads from 1 to 18kg/2.2 to 39.6 lb perfectly balanced. By turning the coloured notched ring you can adjust the pantograph’s friction; this will ensure that the load remains stable when set in position, but that it will move smoothly up and down when necessary. In any case, it is always advisable to use the springs to aid in raising your pantograph. When choosing the additional spring(s) for your pantograph, you will first need to know exactly which model of pantograph you have, in order that you can select the spring of the correct length. If you have one of the new compact pantographs (with grey-painted “scissors”), look at the colour of the notched ring the 2m version has a red notched ring, while the 3.8m version has a blue notched ring. For Top 2C use springs FF3531, FF3532 or combinations of both depending on your capacity needs.  Please see the Manfrotto Catalogue or brochure available in PDF for the counterbalance weight recommendations.
