Stand-Alone modeSTAND-ALONE MODE:
The laser operates stand-alone and does not need and control. It plays back the content stored on the laser's mainboard.
DMX modeDMX MODE:
The laser can be controlled with a standard DMX controller or DMX software.
ArtNET modeArtNET Control mode
Master-Slave modeMASTER-SLAVE MODE:
One laser sends control commands, the other laser follows these. Works with Stand-Alone modes and Sound-to-Light modes.
LAN connectionLAN MODE:
The laser can be controlled over LAN - this can be either direct software control, or ArtNET or similar (depending on the main board)
ILDA connectionILDA MODE:
The laser can be controlled over standard ILDA, the analog control signal for laser control. External Digital-Analog-Converters (DACs) can be used.

READ MORE PRODUCT DETAILS
Built with the latest RTI Semiconductor Laser Module technology!

The tarm 18 is made in Germany and is a compact show laser system that is ideally suited for top professional laser show applications of any kind. It is built with the latest RTI semiconductor laser modules that are specially designed in a way to keep spot size as well as divergence equal on both x- and y-axis. This is significantly advantageous over solutions with a very good divergence on one axis, but a bad divergence on the other. The laser modules inside the tarm 18 are different - the spot size and shape is equal for all colors and on both axis!

The beam specifications of the new tarm 18 are given with only ca. 5.0 mm diameter and 0.7 mrad divergence - which applies to both axis, so it's an actual value not an average and provides higher quality results than specifications with mixed calculations. The extremely small beam diameter allows for the use of very small 4.5 mm mirrors, which results in reduced inertia and thus very good scanning performance.

KEY FEATURES

  • 18 W total RGB power in a small housing of only 350/310/168 mm
  • super small spot of ca. 5.0 mm for reduced inertia and thus fast scanning
  • All wavelengths matched in divergence and beam size
  • extremely low divergence of 0.7 mrad - on both axis!
  • Integrated network switch for linking the control signal
  • Compact form factor, module size equal to the Coherent OPSL modules
  • extremely lightweight unit with only 17.5 kg
  • Different, brighter wavelengths for increased visibility
  • brilliant colors and great color fading
  • Laser modules do not come out of internal alignment
  • Maintenance free laser modules
  • High quality product, Made in Germany
  • Great scanning performance suitable for projections as well as for beams

The tarm 18 impresses with a guaranteed RGB output power of 18'000 mW. Great visibility is achieved with the new RTI Semiconductor Laser modules (RSL) with special wavelengths for increased visibility: 4'000 mW / 637 nm for a very bright red combined with 4'500 mW / 525 nm green and a strong blue laser module with 10'500 mW / 455 nm. The 525nm green provides a warmer green tone than the 520nm diodes and has increased visibility.
These new RSL modules with their extremely low divergence and homogenous beam shape make the tarm 18 a top professional laser system. The extremely small beam diameter of only ca. 5.0 mm allows for the use of small scanner mirrors which leads to reduced inertia and higher scan speeds. This is especially important, as the tarm 18 can be used for any kind of laser show application: Super sharp beams and vivid colors for large scale concerts and festivals but also a perfectly matched beam for crisp graphics.

Beam Spot Comparison tarm 18

The RTI Semiconductor Laser modules are maintenance free and do not come out of internal alignment.
The standard scanners can be run at a maximum of 45kpps @ 8° ILDA and a maximum scan angle of 50°. CT-6210H scanners with LAS Turboscan drivers are available as option and provide even higher scan speeds with up to 60kpps at 8° ILDA .

The powerful tarm 18 is suitable for indoor and outdoor show laser applications at concerts, festivals and other huge events. Demanding graphics projections or projections over long distances are possible without any problems, due to the extremely good divergence.

INCLUDING SHOWNET LASER MAINBOARD

The tarm 18 is delivered with a ShowNET laser mainboard as standard. This means it has a multitude of control features already built-in: Control via DMX or ArtNET, just like a normal lighting fixture, are possible as well as computer control via ILDA or LAN. Of course the laser can be run in stand alone operation, too. The contents for playback (for DMX, ArtNet, Stand-Alone, etc.) can be fully customized. As the ShowNET laser mainboard comes with a full license of the Showeditor software, it is easy to create custom content for the built-in memory or even directly control the laser with a computer - either live or for creation an playback of complete laser shows.

If ILDA shall be used as control option, like from an external Lasergraph DSP, the internal ShowNET mainboard can also be used as receiver for an ILDA streaming signal - so the externbal ILDA signal can be feeded to an external ShowNET device and this sends the direct control to the tarm 18 via ILDA Streaming - so no long ILDA cables are required any more, even with ILDA based control systems.
