Canara’s new 400W LED Fresnel is designed to replace existing 2kW Halogen Fresnel’s in broadcast studios. This has been a long-standing request from lighting designers, but it has taken time to develop a light source with consistent colour temperature and CRI above 90, according to the company.
Ajeet Khare, Canara MD, said, “Our efforts with LED vendors over the last two years have finally resulted in the desired LED light source. Next challenge was to design an efficient thermal management system and the driver to achieve the final requirements of lighting designers.”
The Fresnel delivers 31,000 Lux at 2m in spot and 5400 Lux at 2m in flood with a CRI above 90, and is available in both daylight and tungsten colour temperatures.
It is available both in 3200K and 5600K versions, and delivers a uniform field across the entire beam from spot to flood. It has an inbuilt dimmer with 0 to 100% dimming, the beam angle can be adjusted from 15° to 50°, and the temperature is controlled by an active cooling system. The fixture body is built out of aluminium extrusion.
