Introduction

The bubble tube stands out in the darkness and captivates the attention of anyone near it with its light and movement. This bubble tube helps create innumerous atmospheres using its colorsvibrationsoundreflections, floating objects and interaction.

 

Our Luminea Tube can be used along with a 6 button, giant die, the switch that you want, or even with the Luminea App (available for downloading) to control the coloursand bubbles of the tube in a unique way.

Besides being part of a small sensory room, Luminea bubble tube can also be part of the SHX System as part of a more complete multisensory environment, which multiplies the interactive possibilities within an integrated system that incorporates the remaining devices within the room, including projection, sound, vibration, etc.

Components

  1. Bubble tube
  2. Control Box
  3. Power supply
  4. 6m DMX cable

 

    

  

  • A 230V socket must be provided for the power supply of the device.
  • A DMX connection must be provided for lighting control (female DMX connector).
  • In case of need to control more lighting elements, a second DMX connection must be provided to ensure continuity to the signal (male DMX connector).

Installation

  • Remove the protective film from the methacrylate tube.
  • In a SHX installation, connect the DMX cables: connect to the IN connector the cable that comes from the previous DMX device in the chain or if the tube is the first element, then the cable should come directly from the Central Device SHX. From the OUT connector the cable should go to the next element in the DMX chain.

  • Place the Luminea Tube at its final location in the room to avoid moving it when is full.
  • IMPORTANT: Level the bubble tube by moving the leveling legs at the corners of the bubble tube to ensure that the tube is stable.
  • Connect the power supply.
  • Connect the control switches if required.
  • Fill the tube with clean water (if any water is spilled, dry it).
  • In case of including a Balls Kit for the bubbles tube, put them into the tube once filled, keep them under the water until the air inside is gone.

 

Before start using the device check the following points:


  • Connect the power adapter to the main.

  • Once you’ve plugged the light source, it will stay lit for 10 seconds (a white light) and thereafter it will work in automatic mode (see next section).
