12" Windmachine Moleffect

Type 7971

The Type 7971 12” DMX Windmachine Moleffect is designed to create wind effects from a slight breeze to a stiff wind with minimal noise. The Windmachine is effective at dispensing foliage, dust (Fullers Earth) and artificial snowflakes, in addition to manipulating branches or shrubbery on set. Other common uses for the motion picture, theatre or live event industries is the delivery and removal of atmospheric fog, smoke or haze. This re-engineered model takes advantage of a new universal motor, a new digital motor control and an updated local interface. The universal motor operates on A.C. or D.C., from 100 to 250 volts, and can be controlled from a remote location via standard DMX 512 protocol. The speed control has been updated to include a deceleration feature through an electronic brake. This rapid decrease of air-flow offers an almost instant-off feature. The updated local interface allows the fan to be operated locally from a standard radial speed control or “bumped” to full speed by pressing the bump button. The bump feature provides a sudden, controlled gust of wind above the otherwise steady output. An integrated radial-vane collimator narrows the direction of wind and can be removed for wider wind dispersion. The Windmachine can be hung, mounted on a stand or placed on the floor and includes a protective roll-cage.
