DMX Control Console
18″ Moleffect


The Mole-Richardson 18″ Moleffect Windmachine (120-240VAC) can now be operated manually or off a DMX Control Console along with all your other lights and special effects. With new built-in DMX control panel you can daisy chain and signature many windmachines and control them in multiple combinations from a DMX Control Console. This unit can be operated with 120 or 240 volts A.C or D.C current and is designed to create maximum air flow with minimum noise for Hollywood sound stage use.

A solid state control varies the speed of the fan to produce wind effects from a light zephyr to a stiff breeze. This Moleffect is useful not only for routine wind effects, but also for dispersing snowflakes, creating a localized dusty breeze, etc. Radial vanes columnate air-stream, vanes may be removed for wide dispersion. At high speed the fan may be used to cool or ventilate a set or to clear smoke. The unit sets on the floor or mounts on a stand. It is equipped with a Roll Bar for ease of handling.
