Programmi Sistemi Luce (PSL) Tremors Lighting Unit

This is a very interesting and unique fixture.  This is the Tremors by PSL.  This unit has 4 large lenses on the front.  Projected from each lens are 6 dual colored beams of light.  This is made by 4 separate sets of 6 dichoric glass pieces mounted in a linear fashion on 4 motors making a total of 24 beams.  Each motor has 2 different colors on each dish.  Opposite (diagonal) motors are wired together and are triggered from the PCB at the rear of the unit.  In addition to the rotating dishes there is another motor with a weight attached to the end that is controlled from a potentiometer on the rear or an optional 0 – 10 volt analogue control source.  This makes a vibrating action which makes the beams shake in addition to the rotation.  The lamp source is a central 120 volt, 600 watt DYS bulb making a very bright output.  Unit made in Italy.

Pulsar 4 Channel Modulator

This is the updated (and current) version of the Modulator unit from Pulsar.  This unit is much different than the classic Modulator unit made in the 70's - 80's.  This unit is not self contained as it needs additional dimmer packs in order to operate.  Any of the Pulsar dimmer units will work with this unit.  With this updated modulator effects similar to LiteLab, Diversitronics, Etc. can be created without all of the complicated wiring / hazards.  This is done by using 3 zones of signal.  This makes an 'X', 'Y' and 'Z' axis for the lighting.  Tons of features including manual bump buttons, direction changing, many different chases and speeds.  When hooked up this is a very impressive system and must see to be appreciated.  3 or 4 channel operation is selectable from the rear of the unit.  This unit will actually work with the classic Modulators and will use them as slave units.  Great unit made in England.    

VEI / Superstar Lighting V-2000 Aquasplash II Unit

This is a very cool version of the common water simulator projection unit.  Inside of the unit is a common 24 volt, 250 watt ELC lamp that projects through a constantly rotating piece of perforated steel then through a piece of textured / pitted glass to make the 'rippling' water effect.  Next it goes through a convex lens to get focused then out of the unit and onto a slow moving dichoric dish.  The final produce is a slow moving - swirling shimmering effect.  Very psychedelic!  VEI also made an Aquasplash I, but it did not include the rotating dichoric dish.  Unit uses 3 motors: 1 for the rotating dichoric dish, 1 for the perforated metal rotation and 1 for the cooling fan.  Great unit made in China.

Programmi Sistemi Luce (PSL) W204 Sting Projector

Very interesting unit from PSL.  This is the Sting unit.  This fixture uses a 12 volt, 50 watt capsule lamp to produce a concentrated beam of light.  It uses a direct RCA style plug to attach optional effects to the end of the chassis.  The optional attachments available are a gobo holder, motorized color wheel and sound active scan mirror.  Looks very cool when shined on a mirror ball.  Fixture made in Italy.
