SplashArt Ultra THREE Water Drop Photography Kit
Developed for Water Drop Photographers by Water Drop Photographers.
Following on from the highly acclaimed system SplashArt MKII.
We have spent the last 12 moths developing the SplashArt Ultra.
Every aspect of the control system has been upgraded without compromise.
We even engaged the services of an airline pilot to fine tune the control ergonomics.
The underlying electronics and firmware gives you instant control of all parameters with incredible accuracy.
The electronic resolution of the control box is 0.02 of a millisecond that's 20 millionths of second!
The SplashArt Ultra Three is supplied with a fully configured 3 solenoid stand system.
This system opens up a whole new world of water drop photography possibilities.
You can not only mix the colour of liquids but the type and consistency of liquids.
Each solenoid / reservoir assembly is mounted onto a precision made 8mm Perspex mounting plate.
The plate assembly suspended between two heavy duty 1 meter high stands using solid 15mm aluminium bars.
The mounting plate can be easily adjusted for height.
The Ultra Control Box brings a new level of accuracy and control to Water Drop Photography while maintaining
the trademark SplashArt ease of use.
The Ultra Control gives total control of three drops, giving an enormous scope for artistic water drop photography.
The memory function of the Ultra Control allows 8 groups of settings to be saved.
For example you could save the settings for Milk Collisions, Xanthan Gum Collisions, Crowns etc.
All adjustments can be made in an instant and are displayed on a clear LCD display.
Unlike other systems available there is no need to enter in box menu systems or adjust data on a computer screen between shots.
All that is required is a turn of a dial and you can take your next shot.
SplashArt Ultra Control Introduction.
The SplashArt Ultra control box allows extremely fast and intuitive control of 3 solenoid valves and
the camera shutter release.
The overriding objectives of the design were ease of use and visual feedback.
When you change any timing parameter the current value is displayed on the
Red - Drop Size - Top CorseAdjustment – Bottom Fine Adjustment
Green - Gap Size - Top Corse Adjustment – Bottom Fine Adjustment
Blue - Camera Delay - Left Corse Adjustment – Right Fine Adjustment
Red - Start - Initiates the drop sequence
Black- Program Mode- Enters / Exits the program mode
Navigation Pad - Selects and adjusts programmable features
The underlying principle of the Ultra Control Box is the programmable range settings for each of the
Gaps between drops
Main Features of the SplashArt Ultra System
1. One, two or three drops can be generated.
2. Each drop is assignable to any of 3 solenoids.
3. The solenoid open duration each drop is displayed in real time.
4. The Min and Max opening time for each drop can be adjusted.
5. Each drop size is controlled with a dedicated rotary dial.
6. Each drop size can be fine tuned +/- 10% with a dedicated fine tune dial.
7. The duration between drops is controlled using the same principle.
8. The camera shutter delay is controlled using the same principle.
9. The camera shutter lag is programmable.
10. The dials are colour coded by function for wayfinding.
11. 12v RCA Phono outputs to solenoids.
When a desired set of parameters is achieved the whole set can be
saved into memory. Eight sets of parameters can be saved.
When switching between one, two and three drop mode the display will only show the parameters of used drops and gaps.
This is a great feature for setting up your shots as the display is not cluttered with unnecessary information.
