Elation Proteus Excalibur Sky Motion
That sweeping, powerful, attention‐ grabbing searchlight eﬀect that you see at a Hollywood movie premiere, or any number of high‐profile events, has traditionally been the domain of cumbersome and ineﬃcient Xenon lighting systems. Elation Professional is changing all that with Sky Motion, an automated sky tracker system in its compact Proteus Excalibur™ beam moving head that allows the unit to operate as an impacful searchlight eﬀect without the need for a dedicated lighting controller.
Patterns accessible via simple menu
Built into the latest firmware of the Proteus Excalibur and accessible via a simple menu display, Sky Motion searchlight mode allows an Excalibur unit or group of Excaliburs to create the famous sky tracker eﬀect. The Sky Motion system operates autonomously and is quick and easy to set up directly from the fixture display. With the simple assignment of IDs, a variety of searchlight patterns can easily be adjusted for size, speed, and color. Choose from a variety of attractive movement designs like Hollywood, Sky Tracer, Searchlight, Diagonal, Sweep and more, and even customize the look live right from the fixture.
With 7500 lux at a distance of 100m, the Proteus Excalibur is the brightest IP65 full‐featured beam fixture on the market. It houses an ultra‐eﬃcient 550W Flex discharge lamp and projects an ultra‐narrow 0.8‐degree beam that cuts eﬀortlessly through the sky and is visible at great distances. The intense beam projects from an ultra‐wide 260mm front lens as a massive column of solid, attention‐grabbing light that is ideal as a searchlight eﬀect. Fully IP65 rated, the fixture stays operational in all weather conditions.
Easy to deploy
Comparable in output to large 2000W or 4000W Xenon fixtures, the Excalibur is compact enough to easily load in and out and operates at a fraction of the power of Xenon systems. All that is required are IP65‐rated 5pin DMX cables and power. The low power draw means that land power is easy to find for easy deployment. No generator required!
No lighting controller needed
Sky Motion makes it easy to create a traditional 2 x 2 searchlight grid system, or any custom arrangement in lines or clusters, and is especially useful in situations where traditional programming isn’t feasible or available. The Excalibur fixtures are easy to set up without a DMX lighting controller and because the system is autonomous and completely stand‐alone with no need to transfer data or set up a control console, even users not familiar with lighting and DMX can prepare and run the Sky Motion system.
