Claypaky SKYLOS
Claypaky has introduced the SKYLOS , an ultra-versatile and weather-resistant fixture , with incredible light output and outstanding construction features . The Skylos will certainly also be appreciated in the touring sector , where LDs are constantly on the look-out for dense , solid beams of light and ever-greater light output . It fits a custom 300W white light laser source , which provides an extremely parallel , uniform beam . The beam pours out from a large 300mm front lens , specifically designed in Claypaky ’ s R & D department and it is perfectly uniform and parallel , with no visible hotspots .
The beam angle can be adjusted from 0.5 ° to 5 ° resulting in exceptional light intensity , which cannot be produced by a LED or traditional light source . If you consider its light output and the size of the front lens , the body of this remarkable light is lightweight and compact , the company says . This allows the unit both to be moved with relative ease in any environment , and to be rigged on trusses for use on tours . Its body is IP66 protection rated and marine grade . So , it is capable of working in any weather conditions and in environments with high marine salinity and a high risk of corrosion . A sophisticated internal heating system designed specifically for this product means it can even work at very low temperatures , as low as -40 °.
