Rama 175 Fresnel

The Selecon Rama 175 Fresnel is a high performance 1000/1200W theatre fresnel with a 175mm (7 inch) lens that provides excellent performance and beam quality. The large 175mm lens provides up to 50% more illumination than conventional 150mm fresnels The light beam has a soft edge and is adjustable from a narrow spot of 7 degrees to a medium flood of 56 degrees. The beam shape can be controlled using the four-leaf rotatable barn door accessory. Access for relamping is via a swing down bottom that is fitted with a cut-out switch for safety.

Beam adjustment is achieved by loosening the focus knob and sliding the lamp and reflector in relation to the fixed fresnel lens. The "posi-slide" focusing mechanism minimises any vibration of the lamp.

Detailed Features

The tilt and focus scales are marked in real degrees to enable fast, accurate, adjustment of the luminaire. The pan adjustment on FFT luminaires also is marked in degrees. This enables information from the lighting designer's calculations or visualisation software to be used to preset the luminaire focus on the ground before the lighting bars are flown leaving only fine tuning to be done during the focus session.

Selecon Rama Built-in Safety Bond The safety bond is built into the luminaire (left) to ensure this essential safety aid is always on hand. When rigging, simply release the top slide lock, pull out the wire and fit to the lighting bar. Reverse this procedure to store the safety bond back into the luminaire.

The "posi-slide" focusing mechanism (right) ensures the lamp tray slides easily and smoothly to minimise any vibration of the lamp while focusing the luminaire.
