URGENT Robe 1200AT (E) Spares required


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,


We've had a failure in one of our Robe Colourspot 1200 AT (Electronic ballast).


We urgently need one of the following IC chips from the stepper motor control boards near the lens end of the fixture:


V3.1/IC2 B3


Does anyone have one in stock near North/East London or Essex they would be willing to part with?


We need the head for a show loading in on Sunday and they are on a 2 week lead time with Robe.


Any help much appreciated!







Here is a picture of the chip!


Thanks in advance!

Indeed they are. It would probably be easier to dry hire a complete new unit than trying to source a spare chip, which can blow for numerous reasons but often because of chafed cables. So you should diagnose the fault before sticking a fresh one in.


All the best

The cause of the failure has been diagnosed and fixed.


The fixture belongs to me and dry-hiring in fixtures somewhat defeats the object of running a hire company so I'd rather try to fix this one if there is an option to do so!


I have a backup plan but would rather send out these units as we have the correct gobos for them in stock.


Thanks for the assistance though.


All the best,
