“During development of the Proteus Excalibur, we made comparisons with legacy Xenon fixtures in order to get a sense of how the aerial beams compare to each other,” explains Elation Product Manager Matthias Hinrichs. “We quickly realized that in many respects, the Excalibur outperforms these fixtures. It became clear that there was a unique opportunity for the fixture to replaces expensive and power-hungry Xenon searchlights for special events, theme parks and other applications.”
Patterns accessible via simple menu
Built into the latest firmware of the Proteus Excalibur and accessible via a simple menu display, Sky Motion searchlight mode allows an Excalibur unit or group of Excaliburs to create the famous sky tracker effect. The Sky Motion system operates autonomously and is quick and easy to set up directly from the fixture display.
With the simple assignment of IDs, a variety of searchlight patterns can easily be adjusted for size, speed, and color. Choose from a variety of attractive movement designs like Hollywood, Sky Tracer, Searchlight, Diagonal, Sweep and more, and even customize the look live right from the fixture.
With 7500 lux at a distance of 100m, the Proteus Excalibur is the brightest IP65 full-featured beam fixture on the market. It houses an ultra-efficient 550W Flex discharge lamp and projects an ultra-narrow 0.8-degree beam that cuts effortlessly through the sky and is visible at great distances. The intense beam projects from an ultra-wide 260mm front lens as a massive column of solid, attention-grabbing light that is ideal as a searchlight effect. Fully IP65 rated, the fixture stays operational in all weather conditions.
