American DJ Cyclotron Version I

Rare unit from American DJ. This is a Cyclotron. Similar to the Cyclotron II, but a more primitive styling just like a mini rolling box.  Unit rotates and spins 360 degrees while using a 750 watt linear strobe lamp. The output is bright flashes and shafts of multi-colored light in multiple directions. Super cool light. Unit has an adjustment knob on it for the speed of the flash and also can be triggered from a 0 - 10 volt analogue signal via a 1/4" plug on the unit. Multiple units can be synchronized when connected together. Unit has 2 motors. 1 for the rotation of the head and 1 for the tumbling motion of the light drum. I am planning on retrofitting the unit for a halogen light source and eliminating the strobe circuitry.  Unit made in Taiwan.
