Martin Atomic Colors
The Atomic Colors is a dedicated add-on unit for the Martin Atomic 3000 DMX strobe. This unit enhances the versatility of the Atomic 3000 DMX by adding the extra dimension of color changes that can be controlled and programmed with any standard DMX controller.
Color changing is achieved by moving (or scrolling) a string of colored ‘gels’ (theatrical grade, plastic color media) in front of the strobe unit. A processor controlled, low voltage DC motor drives the movement of the gel string, with the processor receiving instructions from a lighting controller. The internal processor also determines the positions of the individual colors and controls the speed of the cooling fans. The lighting controller can be any device that outputs the widely used USITT DMX (1990) data protocol
The Atomic Colors requires an external power supply that is not included. Standard scroller power supplies are available in various unit sizes. Each Atomic Colors requires one unit of power. The size of power supply required is dependant on how many Atomic Colors you are using.
The scroller power supply combines the low voltage and the DMX data for the Atomic Colors in a special four-wire cable with XLR-4 connectors. The Atomic Colors features a ‘through’ XLR-4 connector that allows multiple units to be connected in a ‘daisy-chain’ to a single external power supply.
