STAGE LIGHTING

While modern LED DMX fixtures are a mainstay for many events, there are still times when conventional stage lighting fixtures still serve a valuable purpose. Nothing projects intense powerful bright color better than conventional fixtures can and SPS maintains a full stock of ellipsoidals, fresnels, cyclorama borderlights, and a variety of PAR washlights. We also provide related gear including color media, dimmer packs, controllers, socapex multi cables, stage pin cables, power distribution feeder cables, clamps, truss, stands, and batten pipe to provide a complete solution for your production or event. We can also do your lighting design as well if you need that service as well.

6" Fresnel Spotlight

6 inch fresnel spot
The 6" fresnel is the basic workhorse soft edge beam fixture typically used behind the theatre proscenium where it's ease of blending is most useful. It's also a great fixture for television, film, or video lighting when fitted with 8-BD-4 four way barndoors. It produces a beam adjustable from about four to twenty-one feet in diameter at fifteen feet with the hand crank adjustment control. It can be fitted with either a 500 watt BTL or 750 watt BTN medium prefocus lamp and has a standard 2P+G stage pin connector. We provide a 6-CF color frame with your selection of color media. For spill management we have 6-SN fixture snoots if needed. For stage applications, the fixture will be equipped with a 510 pipe clamp for batten pipe. For television, film, or video applications, we provide a TVMP adaptor to fit standard "C" stands and gaff mounts. Dimensions: 14 1/4" high, 8 1/2" wide, and 10 1/4" deep. Nominal weight without clamp: 11.5#. Optical characteristics for spot focus: Beam 9° Field 16°. For flood focus: beam 59° field 70°.

Socapex Multicables

Socapex Multicables
Socapex multicables provide a fast and clean way to run power circuits from the dimmer racks or distro to the fixture locations. Each cable carries four to six circuits, either 120 or 220 volt in either 14 gage (1000 watt) per circuit or 12 gage (2000 watts per circuit). We have Socapex PAR Bars or breakouts for the stage end, breakouts or direct connections to dimmers or distro at the racks. Additionally, SPS can provide non dimming distros for either six 120 volt AC circuits or six 220 volt AC circuits to provide power for truss mounted moving lights. Standard multicable length is 50 feet and we have even longer lengths of the four circuit 14 gage that work nicely with four fixture PAR Bars.

Notes...

Note 1: Information about controllers, trussing, battens, lifters, and stands is available on our  Event Lighting page.

Note 2: Beam angle refers to the brightest region of the fixture's beam at the center, Field angle refers to the least bright region of the fixture's beam at the edge.

Note 3: Beam spread formula is BEAM WIDTH = BEAM ANGLE x .018 x DISTANCE
