The VARI*LITE® VL3000™Q Wash luminaire is a powerful 1200W lumininaire with a noticeable reduction in noise output from the original Series 3000™ luminiaires. The VL3000Q Wash luminaire maintains the powerful 20,000 lumens of output from the original VL3000™ Wash luminaire and provides the same superior color and beam control. The "Q" range fixtures are designed for situations where the absence of noise is critical to the performance.
The Series 3000Q Wash 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 Wash luminaire features 6:1 zoomable beam spreader optics, CYM color mixing, variable CTO color temperature correction, a six position color wheel and separate dimmer and ultra-fast strobe mechanisms. A standard pallet of colors is provided with the unit. Custom 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 Wash 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 Wash fixture.
