Functional Overview

ACME is now totally committed to its long life span lighting technology research and development. Another breaking through the long-life solution from PHILIPS MSD PLATINUM 12R LL 260W discharge lamp is now creating the new member ACME ORION with 6,000 Hours life span after the successful CHIRON. It’s a standard 2° straight sharp beam in all applications and therefore a very cost-saving investment. Thanks to the intelligence software monitoring control, the unit will go into the sleep or instant-on mode to save the output which is greatly improving the lamp life span, just an image that is giving you a huge saving from daily maintenance. By equipping with digital position correction technology, Orion is ready to offer fast and smooth movement. Both static 16 gobos and 14 colors wheel with two rotating 8 or 24 facet prisms are aiming at producing various mid-air effects. The excellent compact housing design will be suitable in multi applications such as events, TV shows, project installations, etc.
