It’s just the right size for a small to medium sized stage or venue. The Drama LED W50 has four lens options - 19, 26, 36 and 50-degrees - to best suit the throw requirements of the application. This unit also comes with four framing blades to let the user change the shape of the beam. The fixture also comes standard with a gobo holder used to project patterns and a gel frame holder used to change the color of the spotlight. The projection can be focused manually with the unit’s lens tube. Additionally, a manual iris accessory is available to adjust the diameter of the spotlight. The fixture’s housing is available in black or painted white. And, it is manufactured with a single mounting yoke for rigging. The Drama LED W50 is an on/off lighting fixture or a controllable unit. An external controller is available to control the fixture via DMX 512. It mounts on the side of the fixture’s single yoke. This gives the unit 255 steps of dimming and a flash mode. Additionally, four dimming curves offer varying speeds of fading to black. The controller is made to your specs with either 3-pin or 5-pin DMX connections. The unit houses an auto-switching power supply that operates from 100V to 240V.
