General Description
Whisper XL color changer for 4kW, 5kW, and 6kW fixtures provides accurate, high-speed
scrolling, low noise operation, and enhanced fan control.. Lightweight, durable construction
ensures trouble free operation.
The fan control is especially useful in studios where the noise factor is of vital importance.
Operation or non-operation of the fan is accessed via DMX channels and remotely
controlled by the lighting console.
Maximum gel string length is 11 frames. The convenient auto load function makes
changing gel strings quick and easy. A low current drive permits daisy chaining 8 units
(DMX--PSU).
Operational modes are set using 6 dipswitches on the color changer unit.
DMX addresses are set using 10 dipswitches.
When teamed with Compulite control consoles, unique scroller patching, special dark gel,
and frame set up functions are available in the Scroller Patch menu. Whisper is compatible
with Compulite’s Sabre, Ovation 4D, Micron 4D, Spark 4D, Spark, and Photon control
consoles.
