Focus Series Expands With Incredibly Bright Beam Fixture




ADJ has announced the expansion of its popular Focus Series of LED-powered moving head fixtures with the introduction of the Focus Beam LED. The first dedicated beam fixture in the range, this new model generates a highly-concentrated solid beam that is incredibly powerful, making it ideally suited for creating impressive and engaging aerial effects.

Powered by an extremely efficient 80-Watt white LED light source, with a color temperature of 7400K, the Focus Beam LED features an advanced optical system which creates an output comparable to an MSD 5R lamp. The unit’s large front lens projects a beam with a 5-degree angle that has an even field with no hot spots, which remains uniform over tremendously long projection distances. Meanwhile its 50,000 hour average LED life expectancy effectively means that the inconvenience of lamp replacement becomes outdated.

Featuring a variety of high-quality beam manipulation tools, the Focus Beam LED offers lighting designers a wealth of creative potential. This begins with the 13-postion (+ open) dichroic color wheel, which features a useful mix of vibrant saturated hues and more subtle muted tones as well as a CTO filter. In addition to this is a separate GOBO wheel, which is loaded with 15 fixed metal patterns (+ open). These include four beam reducers, allowing the creation of extremely narrow pencil-thin beams, as well as a diverse collection of simple patterns that have been deliberately selected for generating sharp mid-air effects.

The fixture also offers motorized focus, which is the signature feature of the Focus Series. This allows lighting designers to ensure projected GOBOs remain sharp over any throw distance, while also having the option of deliberately blurring them to create more subtle textured projections. In addition, the Focus Beam LED also offers a linear 0-100% frost filter, which allows the unit to do double duty as a wash luminaire if required.

In terms of connectivity, the unit is fitted with both input and output power connections – in the form of locking Seetronic sockets – which allow the power supply for multiple fixtures to be linked together (up to 15 @ 120V or 30 @ 230V). A USB socket is also fitted for easy future firmware updates, while standard 3-pin input and output sockets allow integration into a DMX control system. The unit offers a choice of two channel modes (16 or 18) and is compatible with the RDM protocol for remote DMX addressing.

“The Focus Series has proved very popular for a wide variety of applications across the middle market of the entertainment lighting world,” explains ADJ USA’s National Sales Manager, Alfred Gonzales. “From churches to nightclubs, production companies to mobile entertainers, Focus Series moving heads have made their mark on fixed installations and temporary event productions all over the world. Which is why we are excited to be expanding the series with the new Focus Beam LED. Despite its compact size and low power requirement, this impressive fixture generates a surprisingly-potent beam that is capable of holding its own in large spaces, working alongside video and other lighting equipment. Having already demonstrated the fixture a number of times to an overwhelmingly positive response, I know this is going to be very well-received by lighting professionals across the board.”
