Powerful Studio Lighting (DIY)

Introduction: Powerful Studio Lighting (DIY)

About: I make things because its fun and I like the challenge.
This box contains no less than 15X halogen bulbs, each burning 50W of power. When fully maxed out the box acts as a professional floodlamp due to its 750W output and its even distribution of light.
  • When running, the aproximate colour temperature is about 3300K but when used with filter sheets a range of effects can be achieved.
  • The the lights can be controlled by a TTL signal (+5v), audio signal or just at the wall. This allow you to use a DMX power outlet switch box and thus a DMX controller.
I used a sound to light module from Quasar electronics. com : Try Here   were all 15 bulbs are in parallel and are regulated by this product.

I have used my lighting in conjunction with an arduino controller board to hold a lighting sequence to match a song and it worked really well.

The video below is of my smoke bomb instructable, but I used this light during  it and ignore the camera flashes.
