Robe's exciting new ROBIN 300E Spot and Wash moving lights are already in production after their launch at Prolight+Sound, Frankfurt.
The new fixtures are based on the Robe Innovative Technology – a philosophy committed to developing products based on the most inventive available technology. The Robin 300 Series will be ideal for multiple applications - including theatres, TV studios, churches, medium sized stage shows and live events, plus all types of professional installations.
Both fixtures are the result of extensive communication between Robe and designers, programmers, operators and rental companies operating in all areas of the professional lighting business.
The lightsource for both fixtures is the new Philips MSD Gold 300/2 MiniFastFit lamp with colour rendering index of 75, and with 2.000 hours of lamp life.
Electronic ballasts offer smooth dimming and real strobing effects, and the fixturesâ€˜ electronic auto ranging power supplies works on systems of 100-240 V AC at 50/60Hz.
The pan and tilt movement can be either 16 or 8-bit resolution at 540° Pan/260° Tilt, and a user-friendly locking mechanism ensures safe and stable transportation.
Communication protocols are USITT DMX-512, ArtNet, MA Net, MA Net2 and RDM
