Ayrton launches new line of luminaires




Ayrton has introduced an exciting new line of luminaires with product names like Merak, ArcaLine3, and MagicBlade-FX fixture. Ayrton has developed Merak as a compact wash fixture that combines punch with enhanced performance. Its new design squeezes a whole lot of washlight into a package that is less than 40cm high, with a new 250W RGBW multichip LED module and Fresnel lens, to create a mono-source luminaire that is a marvel of ingenuity.

Merak signifies the first embodiment of Ayrton’s new, sleeker design motif that exhibits straight yoke arms and minimised base enclosures that house highly efficient miniaturised power supplies – Merak’s base box fits its high-tech, 400W power supply into a package just 20cm wide by 5cm high!

It features a proprietary 10:1 optical zoom system, combined with a 250-Watt low-etendue, RGBW multichip LED module. Merak produces magnificent output with a remarkable spread through specially developed optics, combining a four-chip-per-colour RGBW LED module with light pipe technology to ensure a homogenous colour mix is transmitted through its rosette lens. Merak produces superior colours – even in the yellow, orange and amber range, and features a white chip at 6500K. A de-focusable rotating beam shaping optic, which can be variably positioned with respect to the light pipe, provides control latitude from subtle softness to ideal sharpness.

The fixture’s zoom range is 7° to 70° paired with a new Fresnel lens design to ensure homogenous colour mixing regardless of beam angle. With its single-source transmitting lens, Merak casts wonderfully crisp light and just one shadow. Merak features a new miniaturised liquid cooling system that was specially developed to ensure the powerful LED module is properly cooled and to guarantee continuous full power operation without dereating.

Merak will be ready to ship at the end of June. “Everybody is excited to see that Ayrton is not just staying in the niche of top-notch effect lighting, but has expanded its portfolio still further by choosing to bring its ideas, engineering, know-how and innovation into the more widely used ‘bread and butter’ products,” said Althaus.

The second new arrival was ArcaLine3, the latest product in the Static Luminaire range. With ArcaLine3, Ayrton’s ArcaLine unit has had a total makeover, making V.3 a refined fixture that produces outstanding results which are even more attractive to event suppliers.

Each ArcaLine 3 fixture now consists of two distinct parts: the tubular optics and a slender base that houses the electronics, with stabilizing feet at either end that permit the tube to be tilted with no restraint. The one metre-long linear luminaire houses 12 next-generation RGBW high-output LED emitters that can be controlled point-by-point. It has a new 45 mm collimator that projects an 8° beam angle – narrowed from the 12° found on previous units. The new lens employs a rosette pattern, to decrease the diffusion of light energy and concentrate it. The result is a vastly improved colour mix. The central beam intensity of the LED emitters has also been increased by a factor of 1.5, achieving 63 candela/lumen (compared to the previous 40), which is a testament to point-by-point design.

Like Merak, Arcaline 3 will also be ready for shipping at the end of June.

With MagicBlade-FX, Ayrton adds more magic to its Creative Solutions line of graphic beam projectors with a unit that combines the originality of its award-winning MagicBlade-R and beauty of MagicPanel-FX to become the epitome of elegant versatility.

MagicBlade-FX is an elegant rotating baton fitted with seven of the distinctive squared output 65mm fixed frontal lenses found on MagicPanel FX. It shares the same quality of colour mixing and versatile effects: 3D volumetric projections, variation between the colour-rich luminescent face and separated points of light with ultra-tight beam projection or wide angle wash from a unique zoom system with no visible moving parts.

Each emitter combines an ultra-powerful RGBW multichip LED source with a light pipe zoom system that homogenizes the colour mix and an aspherical transmitting lens, which is optimized to project a tight 3.6° beam.

The versatility of the MagicBladeFX makes it ideal for any lighting designer. Used for back lighting, it can create a lens moiré effect. With its volumetric beams in unlimited continuous rotation on the pan/tilt axes, this luminaire helps highlight a performing artist from the side or front.

Ayrton celebrated its 15th anniversary at Prolight + Sound with new products, new staff and a prestigious PIPA Award in the Light FX category for its MagicBurst graphic LED strobe fixture.

This is the fourth year for the Prolight + Sound International Press Awards (PIPA), which are voted for by journalists from over 100 dedicated specialist magazines across the international music and technology sector.

“To be given the PIPA 2017 Light FX Award for MagicBurst is very satisfying and a nice industry recognition of the continuation of Ayrton’s ingenuity and originality in product design,” said Ayrton’s new global sales director, Michael Althaus. “It tops what has been an excellent show for Ayrton where we experienced a really fantastic reception of our new products by the many visitors who came to check them out and see them in action in our light show.”
