Onboard Systems recently unveiled the production version of its new SPIDER® multi-hook carousel for external load operations at the Heli-Expo 2012 Show in Dallas, Texas. The SPIDER Carousel can be configured with four, six or eight carousel hooks as needed for external load work missions. It is designed to work specifically with Onboard's TALON 2K Carousel cargo hooks and 3-Channel Electric Swivel.

"Operators have been asking us to develop a rugged, flexible carousel system for a number of years," said Karsten Lemmon, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Onboard Systems. "We are confident that our customers will find the SPIDER Carousel worth the wait."

Carousel systems are the preferred multiple-drop delivery system for helicopter external load work, and the SPIDER Carousel has been designed to be flexible, durable and convenient to operate. The rugged cage protects the hooks from above and below, and the durable, high-visibility finish makes it easy to spot from the ground. It can use an existing three-wire long line power set-up for quick and easy installation, and hooks can be added or removed from the controller in the field as needed.

The addition of Onboard's new 3-Channel Electric Swivel will provide a continuous electrical connection between the cockpit release and the hooks, allowing the SPIDER Carousel to spin freely to accommodate external load movement without curling or tangling of the long line.
