This is probably a long shot... but has anyone here had any experience with an LTM Blue Torch 270 "sun gun" HMI unit?

 

Unit works off DC... probably from a battery source back then. Little info available. I believe it requires 24 volts to make it work.

 

Interesting unit. Has a thumb wheel on the side that moves the lamp in and out to vary beam spread. No need for lenses. Head about the size of a Joker 200. Same for the ballast.

 

Thanks.

Hello George,

 

I just released one of these units for consignment sale. It was used only for the last elections (several days of live shots). My concern was that there were very few available replacement lamps for it. Supply was getting so scarce in fact that I was wondering about finding a talented engineer to retrofit it to a different lamp.

 

In the end, I ran out of time and sold the kit. Did you ever learn more about this HMI yourself?

+1 on the above post.  Last shoot I saw one on, it was inoperable even after the owner installed a new (and very expensive) globe. would strike but the arc would not stabilize and the ballast tripped out.  Stay away!
