    Looks complete, there wouldn't be a filter for the viewing (white) light, would there ?

    It's cool.

    The univeral 45 uses 2 lamps and I believe they have fixed filter (I think it must dichroic too) and control the intensity of each lamp to get the color rather than moving the filters like the dichro 45S or the dichro 45 computerized color head. But all three have the same styrofoam core diffusion chamber.

    Not to nitpick, but I fear that Joan is probably confused enough, and this is not totally accurate.

    Let me quote from the manual for this device:

    "The Universal 45 system is a solid state, microprocessor controlled dichroic colorhead ...:

    "Lamp: Cat No 81082V, 250W 3 required."
    "Filtration: Red, blue, green."
    "Type of Filtration: Dichroic interference filters."

    There are three bulbs and filters. This is the configuration for the color controller. However, if one installs the vc controller, then the red is replaced with a clear one. But, you are correct that the filters don't move. It is the intensity of the lights that are controlled.

    It is an additive head, and depending on the controller, is either a closed loop system
    for multigrade B&W or color printing. You have three lamps: a blue, a green, and a white.


    Maybe an APUG search will find some info ? It was a VERY expensive, and fine head. It WOULD be nice if you have the controller.

    Here is a link to the B&H data:

    Thanks for the info and the link. It seems I do have the controller pad. See photo. I just need to find out how to use it.

    You have the variable contrast (B&W) controller, btw. It's not hard to use, it serves as a timer and a way to set the filtration. Try printing with the controller set to grade 3 instead of using your other filters.

    I actually paid money for several of the Beseler manuals that I need. I would be glad to scan them and distribute. There is nothing wrong with it because the manuals that I bought are also reproduction and not originals from Beseler. So someone had already violate copyright rule when they scanned and sold them to me.
