Fog Fluid Pumping Station

Look Solutions’ new Pumping Station can supply fog fluid to up to 32 connected haze or fog generators, at heights of up to 15 meters. Each machine must be equipped with a special Fluid Reservoir, which can be easily connected to any Look machine via the standard fluid coupling. Using the pumping station, several installed fog generators can be easily supplied with fog fluid from one canister or barrel. This is helpful if machines are installed in places where the fluid canister cannot be changed quickly or easily. The fluid canister will be replaced by a fluid reservoir - which can be fixed at the machine or beside/behind the machine with a hanging yoke. The connection between the fluid reservoirs is made with tubes. The pumping station, which is placed near the barrel, supplies the fluid reservoirs with fog liquid. If a certain fluid level is reached, the valve inside the fluid reservoir closes and the pumping station stops pumping. If there is only a small amount of fluid left in one of the reservoirs, the valve opens and the pumping station starts pumping. Thus, a constant feeding with fog liquid will be ensured.

Dotz Par 100 LED fixtureThe ADJ Dotz Par 100 is a compact LED par fixture that harnesses the power of an ultra-bright, 100W tri-color (RGB) COB LED source. The chip on board technology allows for smoothly mixed color, avoiding RGB shadows. The COB also allows it to occupy a much smaller form factor, helping lighting designers, installers and venue operators, to create powerful effects, in an array of colors, even if the space they are working with is limited or the venue ceiling is low. The Dotz Par 100 has a 25-80 degree beam angle and 32 built-in color macros. Aside from its Sound Active and Auto Run modes (which runs through the various in-built programs), the Dotz Par 100 gives users a choice between Color Macro and Dimmer modes, as well as a flexible DMX-controlled setting with four channel modes – 3, 4, 5 and 9. In addition, the ADJ Par RF wireless remote control can be used for control over basic features from a distance of up to 82ft (25m). Video tour after the jump.

 The Trusst Dolly Kit is an all-in-one solution for moving large amounts of trussThe Trusst Dolly Kit is a complete all-in-one solution for moving a large amount of truss. The Truss Dolly Kit consists of a pair of wheeled dollies, 10 truss spacers and two ratchet straps. Capable of holding up to 12 sections of straight 290mm truss of any length, the kit allows you to wheel an entire rig’s worth of truss to a destination quickly and easily while protecting it from damage along the way. Truss sections are  loaded onto the dollies horizontally, separated by the truss spacers and secured with ratchet straps. The kit is designed so that there is no metal to metal contact between truss sections, preventing nicks and scratches while in motion. Additionally, the truss spacers themselves feature plastic coated saddles to further cushion truss from the bumps and grinds of the road.
