PR Lighting released its Butterfly moving head earlier this year to much acclaim. Not content to rest on its laurels though, the Chinese manufacturer has already built upon its original design by adding five individual RGBW beams with tilt control to create a flapping butterfly effect. The result is Butterfly II.
The fixture houses 11 LED engines that can be controlled individually or in groups. Meanwhile, five white LED clusters, which can also be controlled together or independently, produce a white blinder strobe or random strobing effects. The unit offers 540° pan and 270° tilt with the ability to spin its head a full 360°. The outer LEDs are also able to tilt 180°. An LCD touchscreen and WDMX control make up the user interface.
In total, Butterfly II features six 40W Osram LEDs and 15 1W LEDs that are reportedly capable of running for 50,000 hours. Its colour temperature is between 2,700K and 10,000K, while power consumption is 600W and it weighs in at 23kg.
The XR 330 Beam and XR 250 Beam also have sequels in the form of the XR 330 Beam II, equipped with the Osram Sirius HRI 330W lamp, and the XR 250 Beam II, which includes a Philips MSD Platinum 11R 250W lamp that emits a laser-like parallel beam. Each features head movement of 540° (pan) and 270° (tilt), as well as auto position correction and a 3° light angle. Other features include a colour wheel with 13 colours, a fixed gobo wheel with 16 gobos, a rotating gobo wheel with 12 gobos, electronic strobe (0.3 to 20fps), dimmer (0% to 100%, linearly adjustable) and motorised linear focus and zoom functionality.
Also new is the XLED 4007 Beam, which is formed from seven 40W RGBW 4-in-1 LEDs that offer independent colour control. The fixture provides myriad options, including electronic strobe of 0 to 25fps, 100% linearly adjustable dimmer, RGBW colour mixing with Macro, pan movement of 720°, 360° or endless rotation, 270° or endless tilt rotation and a beam angle of 7° with a field angle of 13°. Also featured is pixel control, touch keys, an LCD display, adjustable brightness and contrast, and a lamp and projector usage time display. Wireless control can be optionally added.
