Synchronised lighting

When leading specialist manufacturer of stage and event lighting Starlite specified high performance stepper motors for its computer-controlled synchronised lighting units, the company chose the compact, high torque, size 16 unit (with special shaft modifications) from Astrosyn International Technology.

No less than 16 motors are mounted to each 1200W lighting unit, to drive a multitude of functions including colour change and filtering, focus and image projection. The motors are wired direct to printed circuit boards, which are cabled to computer-controlled lighting consoles. Astrosyn says its stepper motor production service provides cost effective prototyping without recourse to the expense of originating machined units.
