The VARI*LITE® VL3000™Q Spot luminaire is a powerful 1200W lumininaire with a noticeable reduction in noise output from the original Series 3000™ luminiaires. The VL3000™Q Spot luminaire maintains the new standards for imagery, beam control, color and brightness in spot luminaires. The "Q" range fixtures are designed for situations where the absence of noise is critical to the performance.
The Series 3000Q Spot moves and operates the same as the original Series 3000 luminaires. The trade off is strictly thermal. The "Q" range has an ambient temperature rating of 40-degrees Celsius, compared to the 50-degrees Celsius rating on the standard Series 3000 fixtures.
The VARI*LITE VL3000Q Spot luminaire features a 6:1 zoom optics, CYM color mixing, variable CTO color temperature correction, a six position fixed color wheel, two rotating gobo wheels, one rotating effects wheel, 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 colors 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 superior power distribution and efficiency.
The VL3000Q Spot luminaire can be controlled from a wide variety of DMX-512 consoles without the need for additional interface equipment.
The change in size and weight due to the modifications is minimal, allowing a consistent hang configuration and appearance no matter which luminaire type is required. The bottom vent cover is one inch taller, and the fixture is one pound heavier than the original Series 3000 fixtures.
