    Default Eclipse Technologies Inc. Lasergraphix LGX -1000 Ar

    Good day,

    I was wondering if anyone has any info on the subject laser. I have searched, but was unable to locate much on the internet.

    Thank you in advance.

    Those were my first systems. They had an internal program that was embedded in chipsets and a little hand controller. I hacked them to take RCA input and used X-29 and Full Auto from One Stop Laser Shop. I still have 3 of them I think laying around on the shelves at the shop. They came with 3 Cambridge 6800HP Galvo's(one for blanking), and some of them had either a 3.5" or 5.25" floppy drive. They came with either a 300mW or 500mW Reliant Argon that was air-cooled. I really need to go through my shop and have a huge laser garage sale… LOL

    yes you do... because i'd like to have one.
    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    Thank you for your responses,

    I thought I would add more information about the hardware.

    2 ea. Eclipse Technologies Inc. Lasergraphix LGX-1000 Ar w/3.5" Floppy Drives
    1 ea. Eclipse Technologies Inc. Laser Control Center
    1 ea Black Box with two 1/4 and two 6 pin XLR Connectors

    The system was reported to be from a ACT III Movie theater by the PO.

    At the moment I am two cable short from testing. Looking for those now.

    Still looking for any type of manuals or info on the software for the 3.5" drive.

    Thanks,
    Marvin

    IDK about a manual. Post pics of what you have and I'll do my best to walk you through it. And yes, these things were mostly installed in movie theaters for advertising before the movie started.

    Ok, so you will need a few more things from what I remember. I had gotten one of those control units, but never used it, so it might take the place of the handheld Keypad, but I think you need keypad to access them. I'll pull one out next time I'm at the shop and see if it doesn't remind me what I did on them… lol

    I have not. It's buried in the shop and life hasn't given me the time to go through it… hoping after new years things might settle down a bit and I'll dig them out. Shoot me an email after new years to remind me….
