Robe’s Robin flies to Frankfurt

Posted on Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

Robe lighting launches its Robin (Robe Innovative concept) range of moving light products at Prolight&Sound in Frankfurt this week. The first fixtures in the series are the Robin 3 Plasma Spot, the Robin 300E Spot & the Robin 300E Wash.

These fixtures are designed to maximise the features, functionality and opportunities offered by the new Lifi Plasma lamp and the Philips MSD Gold 300/2 MiniFastFit lamp.

The Robin 3 Plasma Spot comes complete with an extreme light output of 18,000 Lumens, colour rendering index (94), a flat and even light beam (1 : 1) and a lifespan of 10,000 hours.

These are all made possible by the new plasma lamp light source – which is just being introduced to the market. The Robin 3 Plasma Spot also offers a 20 – 100% dimming capability and a semi-hot re-strike facility of less than a 20th of a second for the full lamp brightness to be restored after shutting off.

There is an optical efficiency of 54% and a lamp luminous flux of 22,000 Lumens, giving the fixture an output of 10,000 Lumens.

The Robin 300E Spot has a series of specially designed modular features including a large 10° – 40° zoom, CMY+CTO, static and rotating gobo wheels, colour wheel, frost, iris and many more. It comes with a full package of rotating and static gobos plus full CMY+CTO. The colour wheels have been developed to give a standard ‘building block’ base for any show, and advanced features like variable frost, linear iris, rotating prism and speedy mechanical shutters provide subtle and detailed fine-tuning.

The Robin 300E Wash is a flexible, lightweight, silent unit with a wide zoom of 5° – 45°. The compact dimensions make it easy to conceal whilst providing an efficient wash effect able to achieve the gentlest of pastels to the richest of saturated colours, says the company.
