Convert HID Instrument to Halogen
« on: June 25, 2015, 05:37:37 pm »

I have found some used Source4 Jr ellipsoidals for a terrific price that are outfitted with HID lamps. I would like to convert them back to halogen, and was wondering if anyone has experience doing this sort of thing. I am assuming I will need to replace at least parts of the lamp housing. Are there more drastic things I need to keep in mind, or look out for?

Give ETC a call.  They have some of the best tech support I have ever worked with. https://www.etcconnect.com/Contact/Americas.aspx

All you have to do is change the cap. Done it before on Altmans. ETC should be the same.

Thank you gentlemen, for your responses. I did talk to ETC, and in the end, I have decided to keep them as HIDs, and will control them with Elation Uni-pac dimmers set as switches (hopefully will be able to wire the two instruments together, so I only need one). They will be lighting a large cross suspended close to twenty feet off the ground in a church sanctuary. I came to the conclusion that if anything in the place needed constant illumination, it was that. :)
