Futurelight DMH-30 and DMH-40
With its DMH-40 Futurelight now introduces an LED spot which due to its motorized focus and illumination uniformity fits perfectly for the projection of filigree gobos. It has a connected load of 160 watts and a weight of only 11 kilograms – for this reason the DMH-40 provides a good alternative to Moving Lights with CDM lamps. The LED with its 40 watts used for the DMH-40 creates a whiter light than a CDM lamp and reaches a brightness of 1,500 lux in five meters distance.
Despite its small dimensions the Futurelight DMH-40 is equipped with a lot of features. It has an effect wheel with a three-facet prism which can be turned in both directions with different speed as well as a 3D prism and a frost filter. Seven rotating gobos (plus open) and eight dichroic color filters (plus white) are controlled by the 14 DMX channels. A motorized focus is available, too. The beam angle is 15°.
The Futurelight DMH-30 has been developed for smaller kinds of applications. It is the low-price alternative to its “big brother“, whereas the lighting power had to be reduced as well as some features. Thus the Futurelight DMH-30 is about one third cheaper than the DMH-40.
Both versions do without a time-consuming lamp adjustment. The reliability has been increased by the combination of LED and a switching power supply. The LED will not get immediately dark if a voltage fluctuation occurs, which is common during road use, and needs no cooling time after a power failure and is therefore right away operational again.
The small dimensions of the new Futurelight LED spots is another pro especially for small service providers. A single technician is able to mount those spots to a trussing.
Futurelight DMH-40 and DMH-30 are available by now.
LED has its 50th anniversary next year. By then, multifunctional spotlights equipped with LEDs will have made their way even further and will be indispensable for many sectors. Their power efficiency is already beyond comparable alternatives such as halogen lights or discharge lamps.
