Comments Off on MAGICBLADE-R – Continuous Rotation

MAGICBLADE™-R – Equipped with new generation three phase stepper motors

The MAGICBLADE™-R, by Ayrton Digital Lighting, is now available for hire from DPL Production Lighting. It is a new design that offers continuous double rotation on PAN/TILT axes. The layout of the in-line light sources paired with the highly intensive angle of the optics allows the creation of light curtains with genuine overall consistency. The DPL team find that on stage the MAGICBLADE™-R  enables the creation of virtual décors as the very high centre beam luminous intensity enables excellent visual perception in an environment saturated with light. The fact you can install the product in any position and the individual control of the 7 RGBW LED sources allows for the creation of a host of new effects – watch the video below for examples.   MAGICBLADE-R includes a faster, new generation 32-bit circuit board – developed to allow highly flexible management of the numerous channels necessary for point-by-point control and on large scale installations with hundreds of luminaires. The MAGICBLADE™-R benefits from extensive connectivity and can be controlled by DMX-RDM, Art-Net™ or via LUMEN RADIO™ DMX-RDM wireless connection. Ultra Fast and Precise Movements The MAGICBLADE™-R is equipped with new generation three phase stepper motors that allow quick and precise movement essential for this type of application. Very compact, these new motors fit perfectly into the minimalist design of the luminaire. Minimalist Design AYRTON™ has opted for a minimalist design with the primarily objective of reducing the visual footprint of its luminaires. The gap between the optics has been reduced to a minimum and improved integration of the rotation system continues to allow a reduction in the arm thickness.

The VARI*LITE VL3000 Spot luminaire features a 6:1 zoom optics, CYM color mixing, variable CTO color temperature correction, a six-position color wheel, three gobo/effects wheels, a beam size iris and separate dimmer and ultra-fast strobe mechanisms. A standard pallet of gobos, effects and colors is provided with the unit. Custom gobos, effects and color are available.

An upper enclosure houses the control electronics as well as the arc power supply for the 1200 watt short arc lamp. The arc power supply is power factor corrected for efficient power distribution. The VL3000 Spot luminaire can be controlled from a wide variety of DMX512 consoles. The luminaire is the same size as the VL3000 Wash luminaire, providing a consistent hang configuration and appearance no matter which luminaire type is required.

Programmable Functions

Color System: A three-filter CYM cross-fading mechanism. A fixed color wheel with six interchangeable color filters and continuous wheel rotation for additional effects. It includes a variable CTO color temperature correction filter. Zoom Optics: A 13-element 6:1 zoom optics system, covering a range from 10° to 60°. Beam Size Control: A mechanical iris provides continuous beam size control for rapid and smooth timed beam angle changes. Intensity Control: Full field dimming designed for smooth timed fades as well as quick dimming effects. Strobe: High-performance dual blade strobe system capable of ultra-fast operation. Rotating Gobo Wheels: Three gobo/effects wheels combine to provide 14 rotatable, indexable gobo positions. Each wheel also has one open position. Edge and Pattern Focus: Variable beam focus to soften edges of gobos or spots. Remarkable depth of field capability allows morphing effects between all pattern and effects wheels. Pan and Tilt: Smooth, time-controlled continuous motion by way of three-phase stepper motor systems. Range: Pan - 540°, Tilt - 270°. Accuracy: 0.3° resolution.


Source: 1200W Short Arc Lamp Color Temperature: 6000K CRI: 85 Fixture Output: 20,000 lumens. Power Requirements: Standard AC power distribution from 200– 264 VAC, 50/60 HZ. The unit requires 7 to 12 A depending on the AC supply voltage. Reflector: Precision glass reflector system with dichroic cold mirror coating. Operational Temperature: -20° to 122°F (-29° to 50°C).

DMX Channels: 28 Mounting Position: The VL3000 Spot luminaire can be mounted and operated in any orientation. Spacing: Hangs on 26 in. (66 cm) centers. Weight: 91 lbs (41 kg).


The unit is an integrally designed, remote-controlled, motorized spot luminaire. The head, yoke and enclosure housings are constructed of aluminum alloy for light weight, strength and durability. Low-noise fans provide forced-air cooling for internal components. The rear cap is hinged, providing easy access to the lamp for replacement. A single AC input PowerCon connection along with two, five-pin DMX512 compatible connectors (in and through) are provided. The unit can be controlled from a wide variety of DMX512 consoles. Each unit is equipped with an on-board processor providing diagnostic and self-calibration functions as well as internal test routines and software update capabilities. The unit contains two independent three-phase stepper motors to provide movement of the head through 540° in the horizontal plane (pan) and 270° in the vertical plane (tilt). The pan and tilt mechanisms are belt-driven, providing positional resolution and repeatability of 0.3° on either axis. A 6:1 zoom optics system adjusts the projected field angle over a range of 10° to 60°. Variable beam focus is provided to soften the edges of gobos or spots and to provide gobo morphing. The projected image remains in focus throughout the entire zoom range. The unit contains a CYM color mixing system, as well as variable CTO color temperature correction. One continuously spinning, removable color filter wheel is included. The color wheel holds six interchangeable dichroic colors to allow for custom configurations. The unit comes equipped with a standard palette of dichroic color filters. (Custom colors are available from Vari-Lite.) Three gobo/effects wheels – two six-position, one five-position – each containing individually rotating, indexable gobos and patterned glass effects. The rotating gobos are easily interchangeable to allow customization of the unit. The unit comes equipped with a standard set of gobos and effects. (A wide selection of colored and patterned gobos and effects is available from Vari-Lite.) A mechanical iris provides continuous beam size control for rapid and smooth timed beam angle changes. The unit contains a patterned glass dimmer wheel that provides full field dimming and allows for smooth timed fades and fast blackouts. A dual blade strobe and dousing system provides variable strobe effects capable of rapid operation. The unit shall be ETL and ETLc certified and CE-marked. Exterior finish is black.
