Philips – Vari*Lite

VARI*LITE VL3015 Spot and VARI*LITE VL3515 Spot luminaires provide the increased output of a 1500W lamp in fixtures that offer the same features and are similarly sized as the VL3000 Spot luminaire.  They  feature 6:1 zoom optics (10° to 60°), CYM color mixing, variable CTO wheel, a six-position color wheel, three gobo/effects wheels, a beam size iris, separate dimmer, and ultra-fast strobe mechanisms.

Two reflectors are standard on the luminaire allowing users to choose between either a peaked or flat field beam. In the peaked beam, the fixture provides 27,000 lumens of output, and in the flat field beam, an output of 22,000 lumens is achieved. Reflectors are easily changed, and whichever one is not chosen rides securely inside the luminaire on a specially designed mount.  Users can operate the single lamp at three different wattages via a control channel setting or a lamp menu option. The fixture will run its short arc lamp at 900W, 1200W or 1650W without any detrimental effects on the lamp.

The VL3515 has an added feature of a four-blade shutter mechanism that allows the blades to be operated independently or in unison on two planes for a clear and crisp image.

The VARI*LITE VL3015 Spot and VARI*LITE VL3515 Spot feature new style handles which make them easier to transport.  These new handles have the same bolt spacing as previous VL models, so can also be provided as replacements for original handles.

The VARI*LITE VL3015LT Spot luminaire provides increased output from a 1500W lamp in a fixture that offers the same features and is similarly sized as the VL3000 Spot luminaire.  With the same ballast and lensing as the VL3015 and VL3515, it features 10:1 zoom optics (a range of 5° to 50°) optimized for 200-300 ft throw distances, CYM color mixing, variable CTO wheel, two five-position color wheels, three gobo/effects wheels, a beam size iris, separate dimmer, and ultra-fast strobe mechanism.  Additionally, it contains an independent rotating and indexing 5-facet prism and an independent frost glass.

Using the 1500W Osram double-ended short arc lamp to produce a maximium 42,487 lumens of output, the VL3015LT Spot luminaire allows users to operate its single lamp at three different wattages via a control channel setting or a lamp menu option.  The fixture will run its short arc lamp at 900W, 1200W or 1650W without any detrimental effects on the lamp.
