Technical information electric turntables
Surface-mounted or recessed?
Pre-Motion’s electric turntables are off-the-shelf products. This means you can place them in your store or showroom right away. Depending on the type you may screw a presentation disc on top. You can also incorporate the turntable into furniture or a column. Our turntables come with screw holes in the bottom of the turning motor (stationary). This makes it possible to mount the motor on a surface.
The top of the motor (revolving) has screw holes as well. Using these you may mount an optional presentation disc of your choice. With most turntables you can choose from various presentation discs. Optional: buying (additional) presentation discs Ø 30 - Ø 80 cm.
On-board power outlet / sliding contact
Most turntables are available with an optional power outlet on the platform. You’ll only need this if the product you want to display requires electricity. If you want to have a lamp revolve, for instance, or a coffee machine that needs power. Without an outlet on the platform, your wires would twist in a knot.
Our small electric turntables have a fixed rotation speed. Most cannot have their speed adjusted or be dimmed. This is because their power consumption is already very low. The MAX 100, 200 or 300 kg model is available with optional speed control.
When looking for an electric turntable, don’t just consider the maximum carrying capacity. The height and circumference of the product to be displayed to a large extent determine which turntable you need. For with larger and higher products you’ll have to take the leverage effect into account. This means the maximum carrying capacity drops significantly with wider products.

If you want to convert the turntable into a turntable without power outlet, you should contact us. For a small fee, we can open open up the turntable, remove the revolving power source for you and then send the converted turntable back to you.
Please note: the turntable is not covered under warranty after you have opened up the turntable yourself.
Does Pre-Motion supply screws when buying a presentation disc?
Yes; the presentation disc comes with a small plastic bag with 6 screws + 6 rings.
How can I mount a presentation disc on a turntable?
We provide a step-by-step guide for mounting a presentation disc on your turntable.
Our web shop offers presentation discs of Ø 30 - 80 cm. Please note that these presentation discs are too large for the two smallest turntables in our web shop: the MAX 4 kg turntable and the MAX 5 kg turntable. You are, however, able to mount your own presentation disc to one of those small turntables (< Ø 30 cm).
Can I make turntables rotate faster with speed control?
No; you are only able to lower the speed of rotation of our MAX 100 - 200 - 300 kg turntable continuously up to -40%.
Can I adjust the direction of an electric turntable?
Electric turntables only turn in one direction (usually clockwise). You can check out the direction of a specific turntable by looking for the tab with Specifications under each product.
Exception: for the MAX 500 - 750 kg turntable you are, however, able to make the turntable rotate in both directions by selecting the option for clockwise and counter clockwise rotation.
Can I adjust the speed of an electric turntable myself?
No; electric turntables only have one rotation speed, varying from 1 to 2.5 rotation(s) per minute. You can check out the rotation speed of a specific turntable by looking for the tab with Specifications under each product.
However, for the MAX 100 - 200 - 300 kg turntable, you are able to lower the speed of rotation continuously up to -40% by purchasing speed control with your turntable.
Can I place my product directly on the platform?
It depends on the type of turntable you choose.
Our webshop turntables are sold without top plate. This allows you to screw on the presentation platform of your choice yourself. This is very easy to do. If so desired, you can also order a presentation disc with your turntable; Pre-Motion offers them in various diameters and materials.
Revolving platforms with a diameter of 150 cm and up are sold with a sturdy top surface of laminated wood, which you may finish in any manner you choose.
I need power on the platform. Is that possible?
Want to spin an electric device on the turntable? Or you want lighting on the platform? You’ll need a turning power connection. In such cases, select the extra option ‘sliding contact’. A 230 V power connection (connector block) will turn along with the platform.
What’s important when choosing the right turntable?
Which turntable you need, depends not only on the weight; weight distribution is equally important. The maximum weight capacity mentioned with each turntable is based on products placed in the centre of the platform. Want to distribute the weight on a turntable eccentrically? Then we recommend a heavier turntable; our medium turntables and large revolving platforms can be loaded eccentrically.
The diameter of the top plate is also an important factor. With a large diameter there will be a leverage effect. This means you will need a larger revolving platform when you’re using a larger presentation disc.
What exactly does the leverage effect entail? A good example to illustrate the effect is lifting a bucket full of water. You’ll probably find it easy to lift a bucket of ten kilos. But when you’re asked to hold the same bucket with your arm extended -with the bucket at about half a metre from your body- it suddenly becomes almost impossible to hold the bucket in the air. This leverage principle plays an important role with turntables, when carrying a load that’s not in the middle or is not evenly distributed.
