Programmi Sistemi Luce (PSL) Rebus Unit

Amazing unit from PSL!  This is the Rebus unit which looks like a standard rotating barrel unit but features some unique surprises.  The light sources are 2 X 120 volt, 250 watt ENH MR-16 bulbs.  They are mounted on the back of the unit and are accessible from a panel on the rear.  The light shoots through small holes stamped in the sheet metal chassis then through a dichoric color changer.  There are 3 different colors for each bulb.  The colors are mounted on a long piece of metal that moves up and down making the different colors project.  After the color changer the light hit a set of constantly rotating mirror strips.  There are 5 for each side creating 5 round beams.  FRom the mirrors the light goes through a set of convex lenses to focus the beams.  The focused beams this hit the barrel mirrors.  The barrel mirrors are sound active and triggered from a microphone inside the top of the unit.  The output is a ton of multi colored beams rotating and spinning around the room.  Really cool to see it in action!  Unit made in Italy.

Programmi Sistemi Luce (PSL) Breaker Unit

Very cool unit from PSL!  This is the Breaker unit which is essentially 2 scanners built into 1 unit.  The light source is 2 X 120 volt, 250 Watt ENH lamps mounted back to back in the center of the unit.  The light projects from the bulbs then through a focusing convex lens then through a 12 position gobo / dichoric color wheel assembly.  Finally the light hits the scanning mirror on each end of the unit.  The unit is triggered from an onboard microphone which makes the mirrors scan left and right.  It also triggers the gobo / dichoric wheel to rotate (If selected).  On the rear of the unit there is a sensitivity adjustment knob and selector switch.  The selector switch has 3 positions.  1 is used to select a gobo, 2 is to keep selected gobo in position and 3 is for the gobo to change when the mirrors scan.  The effect is 2 large beams that pan left and right that react to the beat of the music.  All motors are super high quality Micro Motors.  Great fixture made in Italy.
