Elation's Design Spot 1200C and Design Beam 1200C Earn cETLus Approval

Feature-Rich DMX Moving Heads Deliver 1200-Watt Output In Compact 700-Watt-Size Package

design-beam-1200c_smaller.jpgLOS ANGELES – Elation Professional's Design Spot 1200C and Design Beam 1200C DMX moving heads are compact lights, but they've earned a large following among lighting designers, thanks to their big list of features and remarkably reliable performance. Now they've just earned something else too -- cETLus approval for the United States and Canada, ensuring they comply with UL standardsand can therefore be specified in permanent installations and other applications where electrical approval is required.

“We are extremely pleased that our Design 1200C Series has been awarded the cETLus seal of approval, which is granted only to products that pass the strictest safety and quality inspections,” commented Eric Loader, director of sales for Elation Professional. “This is also excellent news for LDs who want to get high performance without a high price at fixed installations.

“I admit I'm biased, but in my view the Design 1200C Series is the most feature-rich, compact and professional 1200-watt moving head series,” added Loader. Since we released it 2009, it's proven to be a very excellent and reliable performer in real world applications. Now that it has cETLus approval, I'm confident it will find its way into more fixed installations and production companies, because it offers such a great value and high level of performance.”

A quick look at the Design Spot 1200C provides a good insight into why Loader is so excited. A hybrid spot/wash fixture with a 1200-watt Philips MSR1200 Gold lamp, the compact Design Spot 1200C takes up about as much space as a typical 700-watt fixture, even though it produces 71% more light. It comes with a built-in variable frost filter and a variable zoom of 16° to 41°, as well as a built-in Elation EWDMX wireless DMX receiver. The unit offers CMY color mixing; variable CTO; 8 static/replaceable dichroic colors including CTB and UV; a gobo wheel with 12 rotating/indexing gobos; a separate animation effects wheel; two rotating/indexing prism effects; a motorized iris; a linear dimmer (0-100%); and motorized focus.

The Design Beam 1200C is an intelligent 1200-watt compact hybrid spot, wash and beam projector that's capable of covering the largest of stages and arenas. It features CMY color mixing plus variable CTO and EWDMX built-in wireless DMX receiver. This versatile fixture is equipped with 8 static/replaceable dichroic filters including CTB and UV and two gobo wheels. Gobo Wheel One contains 6 rotating, indexing replaceable gobos, and Gobo Wheel Two contains 7 static replaceable gobos, plus much more.
