The VARI❋LITE® VL1000™ ERS luminaire combines the functionality of
one of the most popular conventional lighting tools — the ellipsoidal reflector
spotlight — with the versatility of an automated luminaire. Automated functions include CYM color mixing, rotating gobos, variable diffusion and a zoom lens that ranges from 19° to 36° for normal imaging and a super zoom function that ranges to 70°. Tungsten versions VL1000TI and VL1000TS deliver 10,000 lumens with the consistent color temperature of a tungsten source. The VL1000TS model includes an automated, four blade shutter mechanism that provides control of all shutter functions popular in conventional ellipsoidal reflector spotlights. Model VL1000 TI includes a beam size iris.

Programmable Functions

Zoom Optics: Continuously variable field angle in imaging range from 19° to 36°, super zoom angles to 70° is programmable over a timed range of 2 seconds to 20 minutes.
Color Mixing: A fully cross-fading CYM color system is included.
Diffusion: Field or gobo can be continuously and smoothly diffused to wash.
Rotating Gobo Wheel: Six-position rotating gobo wheel with five rotatable, indexable gobo positions and one open position.
Shutter (Framing Models): Four-blade system can frame and crop beam field and gobos. Each individual shutter is capable of translating to beam center while
also rotating ±35°. Entire shutter rotates ±45°.
Beam Size Control (Iris Models): In addition to the zoom optics, a mechanical iris provides continuous beam size control for both rapid changes and smooth timed beam angle changes.
Pan & Tilt: Smooth, timed continuous motion using stepper motors with encoder correction. Pan range is 540°; tilt is 270°. Resolution is 0.1°. Unit will calibrate to support close hangs (yoke-to-yoke).


Source: 1000 W Tungsten Halogen Lamp Color Temp: 3200K
Output: 10,000 Lumens
Rated Life: 300 Hours
Power Requirements: Depending on voltage, 1 to 2 A are supplied to the Tungsten models through standard AC distribution.
