there are 20 of these cyc units. They consist of 20 CYC lenses that turn any LED source 4 into a cyc light. Ours are powered by source 4 Lustr+, these are full colour mixing LEDs. The best mode for using with the GrandMA2 and its colour picker appears to be HSIC Plus7. Do be sure to check the Lustr+ manual for correct operation of the fixtures in their differing modes using the console.
Please note that you will need to hire in power and DMX cables if you use these lights not as the cyc lights. LED1.jpg

Hazers and Smoke Machines

look solutions unique 2.1 hazer
The Unique 2.1 is one of the most popular professional hazers in the world. Ideal for highlighting and supporting light and laser effects.

   Minimal warm up time of only 60 seconds
   Minimal noise
   Pump and fan adjustable separately in 99 steps, therefore variable output (from the finest mist to a thick haze, similar to fog)
   Internal fan ensures quick and homogen distribution
   DMX as standard, analog (0-10V) and stand-alone running
   Control of the pump, fan and the adjusting of the DMX start address is achieved with buttons
   Internal Timer
   Haze-Density Control System
   Minimal fluid consumption (2l canister guarantees up to 50 hours continuous output)


Control in this venue is normally the GrandMA 2 (Light). More details here

DMX goes directly to the chilli dimmers from the Ath control room. There is also a line to the gods (labelled "To Patchbays") which then goes to the promptside flys. There are 1u splitter units at each of these locations.

Houselights are on channels 221 through 224. If the desk is powered up + plugged in it will override the chilli system. Be aware of this!
