TL-500W Fresnel 3200K

The Theatrelight TL-F500 is a white LED Fresnel spotlight suitable for general lighting in small theatres and TV studios, and for exhibition and lighting display including art galleries and museums. The TL-F500 is designed to replace 500W tungsten fixtures.


The TL-F500 is a white LED Fresnel spotlight suitable for general lighting in small theatres and TV studios, and for exhibition and lighting display including art galleries and museums. It is available fitted with colour runners to hold colour filters and beam shaping barndoors for theatre use, or without colour runners for general display use. The model can be changed by the customer as the parts are supplied for the other model. A number of lens types, wattage ratings, and colour temperature options are
available in both models, with either 3 or 5 pin XLR connectors, or RJ45 ethernet connectors for DMX over Cat 5 or Cat 6 cable.

The F500 can also be ordered fitted with an internal wireless DMX card by Lumen Radio (WDMX compatible) with either an internal 2dB or external high gain antenna. The major benefits over an equivalent spotlight using an incandescent bulb are the marked savings in running costs. The light output is similar to many 500/1000 watt incandescent Fresnels, but at a little over 10% of the power costs. In addition, whereas most Theatre or TV rated incandescent bulbs are expensive and have a lifetime of under 750 hours, the F500 has an expected lifetime in excess of 20,000 hours, resulting in much reduced lamp replacement and maintenance costs.

Additionally, the very low Infra-Red and UV output of LED luminaires makes the F500 ideal for display and Museum lighting. The F500 LED module is manufactured to Theatrelight specifications using Osram LED chips with an integrated collimating lens, light mask, and PMMA Fresnel lens for maximum optical efficiency in conjunction with a high power factor, universal mains power supply of proven reliability.
