Wybron 85000 Aquaram IT™ Large Format Scrolling Color Changer

Aquaram Large Format

The Large Format Aquaram IT is a weather-resistant scrolling color changer in Wybron’s family of professional-grade color changers. It’s the next step up from the Coloram II family of color changers, which we produced for nearly 20 years.

The IT generation of Aquaram color changers comes packed with a wealth of improvements and new features.

The Aquaram IT’s aluminum case features rounded corners for easier handling. A non-reflective matte finish powder coat keeps the color changer cleaner. To make this scrolling color changer weather resistant, the front and rear apertures are protected with double gasketed, heat resistant glass. Additionally, the cooling air is filtered on the intake, and has a maze type exhaust port. The circuit board is conformal coated to make it very resistant to moisture.

The unit’s all-aluminum rollers are coated for long life and run on bushings rather than ball bearings for quieter operation. The drive belt has a special profile for movement that’s quieter than the old-fashioned timing belts. Bottom line, the Aquaram IT is the quietest color changer we’ve ever made.

The control electronics have also been extensively upgraded. We have moved away from block mode addressing, and now each color changer can have any address in the DMX universe. Also, the address is now set electronically so the unit can be set up remotely – a big time-saver when changes need to be made quickly.

We’ve also added lots of sensors to help you keep a watchful eye on the status of the Aquaram IT. Ambient temperature, gel temperature, voltage, and current at each unit can be measured and sent to your computer using the industry-standard feedback protocol Remote Device Management (RDM).

Even the unit’s gelstring has gone high-tech. Now we attach a special tag to each gelstring, with the tag allowing you to read the colors directly from the gelstring along with the date it was ordered and the order number. The tag also keeps track of how often each gel frame has been used and how many times it’s been in front of a light. With this feature, you can save older gelstrings for reuse by monitoring what colors they contain and how often they’ve been used.

The Aquaram IT uses Wybron's PS Power Supplies.

The Large Format Aquaram IT fits the following light fixtures: 9 Light Blinders, Cyc Lights, Fresnels and HMI's from 2.5kw to 5kw
