DiscoTech Atraxa Unit

Another super unit from DiscoTech! This is the unique Atraxa unit. The fixture uses a common 24 volt, 250 watt EHJ halogen lamp that sits at the rear inside a focusing housing to produce the beam. The beam projects through a dichoric color corrector and then into the special gobo/dichoric changer. The changer features 8 gobos/dichros attached to a special wheel on the perimeter. All of the wheels spin from a motor mounted on one side. The entire wheel rotates with an additional motor moving 1 gobo/dichro combination at a time to project. The large wheel stops at a specific spot by use of a special sensor that detects a special cut in the wheel. The light beam then projects through 2 more additional lenses then onto the special split 3 ways spinning dish. The output is 3 beams that spin at different speeds and in different directions to the beat of the music. This was a strange find and shipped in from Canada! Fixture features high quality Micro Motors. Unit made in Poland.
