The Galaxis flame projector G-Flame is a new type of flame projector, which is extremely versatile in indoor, outdoor and special effects applications and is equipped with numerous features.
In comparison to other products on the market, the Galaxis flame effect devices achieve much higher flame heights and a much fuller and therefore more beautiful flame pattern with a low noise level (ideal for stage/TV).
Numerous control variants are available and in addition to the wired DMX512, wireless DMX receivers can also be powered via the XLR connection. This means that no power supplies, batteries or rechargeable batteries are required for the DMX receivers.
All components are housed in a very stable, powder-coated aluminum housing.
A large rechargeable battery ensures a long, mains-independent operation time of up to 60 hours, and large power reserves for the reliable supply of the powerful high-voltage ignition and the solenoid valves. Various battery test functions are integrated.
Operating the device is very simple. All necessary settings can be made very conveniently via an illuminated text display with menu guidance.
The fuel used is either the very cost-effective propane-butane liquefied gas mixture from commercially available gas cylinders of 5, 11 or 33 kg, which are connected via a hose. Alternatively, one or two cans of liquid gas or aerosol can be installed in the unit. In combination with the optionally available G-Flame Power Upgrade, even 4 aerosol cans can be used simultaneously. These cans and the cartridge holder are located under a cover on the rear side of the unit. Thus, the cans are safely integrated into the device and are not visible from the outside.
The optional extension for can operation contains the holders for two cans and two non-return valves so that no fuel can escape through an accidentally opened shut-off valve. The conversion to operation with cans enables the use on stages. The same applies of course to the G-Flame Power Upgrade. In this context, we would like to point out that many customers also use the cartridge option for outdoor applications, either because of the quick and convenient installation or because autarkic operation is required.
Autarkic operation means that no control or power cables, no additional control devices connected via cables, no gas hoses and no gas cylinders are required. This means that the unit can be set up extremely fast and can also be used on moving objects. The G-Flame becomes completely self-sufficient when cans are used and the device is controlled either by radio using the Advanced radio module or wireless DMX receivers.
Outdoor operation is possible even in heavy rain.
The device has a fine filter which largely prevents dust, sand or other foreign material from reaching the solenoid valve. Leaks in the solenoid valve can thus be prevented.
Two solenoid valves connected in series additionally increase safety.
An LED warning display in the shape of an exclamation mark signals e.g. actors on a stage that the device is ready to fire and that flame effects can be imminent.
The device is equipped with a tilt sensor. As soon as it is tilted by more than 45°, the fuel supply is turned off for safety reasons. This function can be deactivated in the menu if you want to operate the unit with a larger angle of inclination. The G-Flame can thus generate flame effects in all directions, even vertically and downwards. For cartridge operation an adapter piece must be used at a tilt angle of more than 70° so that the fuel is taken from the gas cans in the liquid phase.
Electronic flame monitoring by means of ionization measurement ensures that the fuel supply is switched off within one second if the flame does not ignite. The flame monitoring can be deactivated in the menu.
With each control variant, different control times can be used for each triggering, e.g. to generate short, but powerful flame balls as well as long standing, extremely high flame columns.
For operation with DMX512, the flame channel and safety channel can be programmed without any restrictions. For example, several flame columns can be set to different control channels and a common safety channel.
The unit itself, the cartridge adapter and the hose are equipped with quick couplers, which significantly reduce the time required for set-up.
The device is equipped with a holder for direct and quick mounting on stands. In addition, integrated cage nuts allow semi-cone connectors to be screwed in for easy mounting on 3- and 4-point trusses.
The flame height can be determined by different nozzles during operation with cans. When gas cylinders are used, the flame height can be changed via the adjustable pressure reducer.
After closing the solenoid valves, the flame vanishes very rapidly, even if the fuel is drawn in the liquid phase in gas cartridges operation, which also enables very fast step sequences here.
A holder for up to four nozzles is integrated in the unit.
When operated with the Advanced radio module, so-called atomic effects can be programmed. This ejects fuel, which is ignited with a programmable delay. The result is a powerful swirl in the flame.
If the Advanced radio module is installed, extremely fast step sequences can be programmed with a range of 0.01 to 99.99 seconds and a resolution of 10 ms (1/100 s). With the Advanced radio module, the G-Flame becomes a bi-directional flame effect device with extensive functions that eases practical work and offer many advantages. The device can communicate with the controller PFC Advanced, the PFS Pocket, or with any PC via USB Radio Modem.
