LA-Toolbox Software ... more details

This intuitive software allows monitoring important functions of the laser unit and adjusting operating parameters.

The LA-Toolbox software is available as PC and Mac version. Both versions are included with every shipment and they are additionally available in the → Costumer Area of our website.

 

Features

One Start Screen for all Connected Projectors

LA-Toolbox-start

All functions and parameters / diagnosis of multiple laser projectors can be controlled by one "LA Toolbox" via ethernet.

For laser safety the 'Disable All' button is integrated to the user interface. The laser output for all connected laser devices is switched off immediately when clicking this button.

Clearly arranged interface to control each projector

LA-Toolbox-GUI

For PHAENON X projectors the full functionality of the software is available.

For all "Basic" projectors (BLITZ, BLIZZARD, PHAENON) less functions are available.


Comprehensive Projection Settings

For all adjustments of the projection an internal test picture can be used in the projection menu.
All settings concerning the projection

  • horizontal, vertical size
  • inversion
  • position offset
  • keystone correction and
  • rotation

can be exactly adjusted with sliders in the clearly laid out "Projection" menu and saved in 3 different transformation settings.


Comfortable Timer Setting

A timer can be used to switch the state of the laser at a predefined time. For instance the laser can switch from "Run" to "Standby" mode.
Drop down menus are used to set the state which the laser is to switch to when a timer triggers as well as the date or date range (from/to), time of day and day of the week.
Up to 6 timers can be configured.


ILDA Settings

All 6 ILDA channels are scalable from 0% to 100% to achieve the best possible white balance. Up to 4 color settings can be saved and called up.
The ILDA signals 'Interlock' and 'Intensity' are evaluated.


State Settings

Four laser statuses can be selected for laser operation:
"Shutdown"  I  "Standby"  I "Test 10%"  I  "Run".

In the "Shutdown" mode the drivers are deactivated and the temperature control is inactive. This saves considerable amounts of energy.

In "Standby" there is no current to the laser sources, which also saves energy. However, in contrast to "Shutdown" their operating temperature is maintained. This has the advantage that switching from "Standby" to "Run" is possible much more quickly.

One advantageous option is the automatic "Shutdown" resp. "Standby" function. This switches the laser into the corresponding operating mode in case no ILDA signal is present for a specific adjustable period of time (for instance at the end of a show).
The device will use less electricity and cool off better.


Climate State

Ambient temperature, heat sink temperature, internal and dew point temperature, relative humidity as well as fan voltage are clearly displayed.


Detailed Information Concerning the Internal Laser Sources

The states of all laser sources can be monitored, the power can be scaled and the behavior of the laser with a small modulation signal can be adapted slightly through the "Bias Offset". This setting allows the best possible adjustment of the effective soft blanking of the Lasergraph DSP.


Electronic Masking - A New Dimension of Laser Safety

With this new safety technology we give users the option to use a graphics editor to flexibly define protected areas in a laser projection.
The editor can be used in way similar to a vector based graphics program to create a mask from geometric shapes (polygons, circles and rectangles). Safety parameters can then be defined individually for each of these shapes.

Two different mask functions are available:

1. Electronic Mask

LA-Toolbox-emask

This important function allows limiting the laser output for certain areas. The intensity of the laser beam can be adjusted in a range from 0% to 100% for each individual shape created with the editor. This makes it possible to correctly protect specific scanning areas such as the auditorium or sectors with optical equipment (video beamers, cameras).
The big advantage of this mask, which is configured in the projector, compared to a mask generated in the show controller is the fact that programming errors which may occur when a show is edited will not disable the mask.


2. Safety Mask

LA-Toolbox-safetymask

For safety reasons every laser projector is equipped with a scanner safety circuit to protect the audience. This mechanism determines the sum of the scanner velocities for the horizontal and vertical deflection of the beam and compares this to the predefined minimum speed.
In case the beam velocity is below the minimum or if the beam is completely motionless this safety mechanism will block the laser beam.

For allowing beam effects with a stationary beam anyway in areas where the audience is not at risk, for instance below the ceiling, the "Safety Mask" can be used to graphically define several areas where a static beam will be possible, see picture. (Up to now only one rectangular safety area could be defined.)


Adjustable Beam Superposition

LA-Toolbox-beamadjust

The Phaenon X laser projectors are equipped with a motorized beam adjustment for superposing the beams. This internal component allows an easy and comfortable adjustment of the beam superposition.
This is a big advantage of the Phaenon X projectors which users will certainly appreciate.

The position of the individual beams can change over time when the projectors are frequently transported, set up and taken down again. Until now the beams could only be adjusted using the small adjustment screws on the side of the device. In everyday use the projectors are often already installed in a stage setup, e.g. attached to a truss high up, when the laser is turned on and the beam misalignment is discovered. This used to mean the laser had to be taken down again for adjustment. This considerable effort is no longer necessary using the "Beam Adjust" of the LA Toolbox Software.


WLAN and LAN

LA-Toolbox-Network

PHAENON X laser projectors can be connected to LAN (Ethernet) or WLAN and can be remote controlled using LA Toolbox software.


DMX Support

LA-Toolbox-dmx

An optionally integrated grating module can be controlled over DMX or manually with the "Grating Wheel Settings". Up to 4 settings can be saved.
The DMX base address can easily be configured using the software.

Grating Module ... more details

The grating module is a self-contained hardware module already installed in a new delivered laser projector (option) or subsequently integrated into an existing device.  

This high value component makes the laser projector considerably more versatile. In addition to classic beams and graphics, a projector with integrated grating module can generate attractive laser patterns, allowing breath-taking effects not only on the projection screen but mainly in open space. Spaces are flooded with laser, figures constantly change shape and color, the laser medium is used to maximum effect.

The grating module can be controlled via DMX, either with an external connected DMX lighting console or with an internal Lasergraph DSP compact Mark 2 (optional component for laser projectors).

The grating module is mounted in front of the scanners inside the projector.
The main components are two wheels controlled by stepper motors, containing three high value optical gratings each, through which the laser is emitted.
The individual gratings can rotate independently of each other, or they can be automatically positioned at a specified angle. Similar to the prism effect they multiply a laser picture and generate a certain pattern or beam effect depending on the grating type.

Default glass gratings of the wheels:

  • Wheel 1: GWT-2 (grid), Machado (ultra fine line), SCNT (frost effect)
  • Wheel 2: GXT-1 (grid), LWT-2 (line), Lumia (haze)

Additional we offer two more glass gratings which can be inserted instead of a default grating:

  • Lumia narrow (narrower haze)
  • Stargate

Features Gratings

Grid WT for example creates a centrally concentrated pattern with a graphic projection. 

Machado consists of a fine line which turns a beam into a fan of different colors and creates a marvelous effect in space.

SCNT generates many small starlets in a graphic.

Grid XT can for instance generate a graphic pattern with large figures.

Line can for instance effectively be used for displaying a graphic in one row.

Lumia is a special laser effect for creating hazy figures.

Lumia narrow creates narrower hazy figures.

Stargate can effectively fill a room with a graphic pattern or a beam.
