Unique II Touring Hazers On The Move in June

June 24, 2009 - Hollister, MO

As the Touring and Show Season kicks in, several Blue Planet clients have added the Unique II Touring System to their gear list including the Mary Howard Studio in Brooklyn, New York as well as Southern Utah University.


The haze machine UNIQUE 2, the follow-up model of the Unique, offers various features, which open up new fields of operation to the user.

Not only the design has been changed, the UNIQUE 2 is also equipped with new features like an internal Timer and a brand new Haze-Density Control System (HDCS). With this HDCS an individual Profile for a show can be programmed.

Due to the new, more efficient fan, the haze can be distributed in the room quickly. A replaceable filter protects the fan against dirt.

With its variable output, the machine can be used in many fields. Any desired effect can be achieved: from the finest mist to a thick haze, similar to fog. Therefore the machine is able to fill small and big rooms or halls with a constant haze, creating the right atmosphere and excellently supporting lighting effects.


• Minimal warming up time

The very short warming up time of approx. 60 seconds means the UNIQUE 2 is ready for operation almost immediately. A continuous output is guaranteed by the fact that the machine does not have to warm up during operation.

• Variable output

The pump and the fan of the machine can be adjusted separately in 99 steps. Thus the user is able to adjust the density and output exactly. A non-linear pump regulation make sure that the pump can be adjusted much better at the lower steps.

• Minimal sound

Due to the fact that the pump and the fan can be dampened, the sound of the UNIQUE 2 can be absorbed tremendously. So the machine can be used in fields of operation where any sound is undesirable and disturbing.

• Buttons and LED's

The control of the pump and fan, the adjusting of the DMX start address and also the adjusting of the Timer and the HDCS is achieved with buttons. The adjusted data can be read at the LED-Display.
• DMX 512 as standard

The UNIQUE 2 can be controlled via DMX 512. Pump and fan can be adjusted separately. The connection is done with 5-pin-XLR plugs using two following control channels at the desk.

The machine can also be controlled with analogue (0 - 10V) via a lighting desk and/or via cable remote (option). This connection is done with 3-pin-XLR plugs. A stand-alone running is also possible. The adjustments are done directly at the machine.

• Internal Timer

With the internal Timer the haze time can be adjusted in Seconds, the wait time in Minutes and the output of the pump and fan in %.

• Haze-Density Control System (HDCS)

With the HDCS an individual Profile for a Show can be programmed. Two Levels with the required pump and fan values along with a haze time can be adjusted. Additionally a pre-runtime can be programmed.

• Controlled by Microprocessor

The intelligent control of every single parameter by microprocessor guarantees trouble free operation of the machine.


• Minimal warm up time (approx. 60 sec.)

• Pump and fan adjustable in 99 steps, therefore variable output (from the finest mist to a thick haze, similar to fog)

• Internal fan for quick and homogen distribution

• DMX as standard, analog (0-10V) and stand-alone running

• Control of the pump, fan and the adjusting of the DMX start address is achieved with buttons

• Can be controlled via cable remote (option)

• Very silent

• Minimal fluid consumption (2 litre canister guarantees up to 50 hours continuous output)

• Made in Germany
