Spektronic BrokenSwing Unit

Awesome unit from Spektronic!! This is the BrokenSwing high energy lighting unit. The unit features a rotating mirror dish inside the unit and a rotating dichoric prism on the front of the unit. The unit uses high quality stepper motors instead of standard motors. This gives you smoother rotation and adjustable speeds of rotation. On the rear of the unit there are 2 adjustment knobs. One is for the sound sensitivity adjustment and the second is for the program selection. There are different settings for how the unit responds. You can have the internal mirror motor react differently than the prism motor. Also you can turn off one of the motors or have one of the motors move slower than the other motor. The biggest draw for this unit is the front design of the projection head. The light emits from the front convex lens after it has projected off of the mirror dish. It then reflects off of the rotating dichoric prism and onto the angled mirrors. The output is a high energy whirlwind of color and motion. Lamp is the common 24 volt, 250 watt EVC halogen. Unit is 220 volt. Fixture made in Germany.
