BabyLED 150W 6.0" Fresnel with DMX. Fresnels have been a staple in Hollywood since 1936 and little has changed except the use of better materials with more precise construction techniques.
While nobody had a problem with the Fresnel's quality of light, heat and electrical draw was another story. It's why you see so many movie people walking around the set with heat-resistant gloves. And of course frying the talent could bring the production to a screeching halt. Then there are scrims - the only way to knock down the output without changing the color temperature.
Enter the MoleLED Fresnel line. Apart from the black powder-coated finish, the BabyLED head looks and performs the same as a legacy light allowing you to swap a standard light for a BabyLED or mix them. In fact there's a retro-fit kit available to convert your old style light to an LED.
On-board local 100 - 10% dimming means you'll probably be restricting your scrimming to half-scrims, saving you a lot of ladder climbing. Besides comfort, you'll be saving on air-conditioning and running costs in the studio. The BabyLED's maximum draw is 0.75 - 1.5A as compared to the legacy light's 8.3A - up to an 80% reduction in energy consumption. This means that you can run many more LEDs instead of legacy lights without raising the temperature. Let's also consider the cost and downtime of re-lamping. LEDs last about 50,000 hours and are virtually maintenance-free.
If you're not sold already, the control features will close the deal. Not only does the BabyLED have on-board local dimming but it's also DMX 512 compatible, so you can remote control 1 or 100 BabyLEDs from a central console by simply daisy-chaining them together. The 90-250VAC BabyLED has a 6.0" lens, passive cooling and aluminum alloy and steel construction. It has 10 degree to 55 degree spot to flood variation and a 5/8" receiver for standard Baby pin. The #18 AWG power cable is 25' long and ends in a NEMA 5-15 Edison (US) plug.
