Equipped with a new 500 W ultra-compact monochromatic LED source calibrated at 8000 K, it can deliver metallic white light with an output of 27,000 lumens. Ayrton has specifically developed the optics in Perseo-S to achieve an optimal resolution-to-performance-to-efficiency ratio. They allow perfect image reproduction and a significant improvement from distortion caused by the shutter blades with wide zoom. The optics produce a highly uniform flat beam with no hot spot, achieving a perfect colour mix regardless of the colour combination selected. Fitted with a 148 mm frontal lens, this proprietary system has 13 lenses, delivering an 8:1 zoom ratio and a zoom range of 7° to 56°. Ayrton has endowed this next generation luminaire with a new minimalist design in lighter weight die-cast aluminium, incorporating full weather-proofing features that ensure easy accessibility. For greater efficiency, Perseo-S is provided with a highly effective phase-change liquid cooling system fitted with four submersible fans located outside the watertight enclosure.
Perseo-S boasts feature-rich standard equipment including a subtractive CMY colour mixing system combined with a variable CTO and a wheel with six complementary colours that produces an infinite palette of vivid pastels and saturated colours. The framing section allows accurate positioning of four shutter blades on a 100% surface area in all positions, so that the user can frame any object regardless of the luminaire’s position. The image section includes 18 interchangeable HD glass gobos on two wheels: one rotating wheel with seven positions and one fixed wheel with eleven positions. The effects section includes a continuous dynamic effects wheel; a 15-blade iris diaphragm; two frost filters, one soft edge, one hard edge; and two rotating prisms, one circular with 5 facets and one linear with 4 facets. Perseo-S presents a sleeker, updated, industrial design, with perfectly straightened yoke arms, a minimalist base and a new water-resistant menu navigation system. Perseo-S can be controlled by DMX-RDM, ArtNet™ or a wireless link using CRMX TiMo RDM from LumenRadio™.
