Martin Launches MAC 700 Wash

The companion washlight to the highly successful MAC 700 Profile is ready to hit the market. The MAC 700 Wash is the latest high performance luminaire in Martin’s line of award-winning MAC moving heads. It carries on the MAC tradition for excellence by offering much of the same technology, modularity and design as the MAC 700 Profile.

The 700 Wash is a powerful 700-watt Fresnel luminaire with a remarkable light output. It features a full CMY color mixing system and variable CTC plus 8 position color wheel. Other useful features include a wide range variable zoom, continuous and indexable beam shaper, and extremely smooth and fast dimmer shutter system. It also boasts the same service friendly modular design and silent cooling as the MAC 700 Profile.

Efficient Optics
The MAC 700 Wash houses a superior and highly efficient optical system powered by a 700 watt short-arc discharge lamp. The durable short-arc HTI 700 D4/75 lamp is extremely powerful and more efficient than competitor lamps. This high optical performance produces a uniform distribution of light and color, a very cool color temperature that ensures a bright yet beautifully even colored light that lacks the brownish edge of competitive fixtures.

Motorized Zoom and Full Range Dimming
A variable zoom is capable of a very wide range of beam angles from a punchy 12.5o beam to a wide 66o flood, and unlike step zoom systems that offer only two or three different beam angles, the MAC 700 Wash’s fully motorized zoom can achieve any beam angle within its range. Through a new and innovative motor control system, the 0-100% dimming performance of the MAC 700 Wash is not only fast but also seamless for velvety smooth fades.

CMY, CTC, plus Color Wheel
A full CMY color mixing system not only offers the broadest spectrum of color available it also works seamlessly with that of the MAC 700 Profile for precise color matching. In addition, an 8 position color wheel plus UV transmitter filter covers those hard to achieve shades. All colors on the wheel are replaceable, enabling designers to customize the fixture to their own requirements. A variable CTC system provides flexibility in color temperature, adding another dimension to the CMY system by giving warmer shades, useful when working alongside tungsten fixtures for example.

Beam Shaper
A rotating and indexable beam shaper allows for alignment of the beam for easier coverage of scenery and set pieces. The adjusted beam provides for more precise illumination.

Additional Features
The MAC 700 Wash is compact for such a powerful, feature rich fixture. It is housed in the same road-tested modular design as the MAC 700 Profile, a design that is both highly durable and highly serviceable. Multi connectors and spring loaded release mechanisms mean that no tools are necessary to remove and insert modules. And a multi position tilt lock keeps the head where you want it. Additionally, a silent low-speed cooling system means the fixture is suitable for noise sensitive applications like TV and theatre.

The MAC 700 Wash is only available with electronic ballast. This gives the added advantages of flicker free operation, lower weight, extended lamp life and a power saving mode. A hot lamp restrike means there is no need to wait for the lamp to cool before re-striking. The fixture is also fitted with an auto sensing switch mode power supply for world wide operation without the need for fixture re-setting.”

Pan movement is 540 degrees by 246 degrees of tilt and speed is exceptional for a mid-sized fixture. Movement is 16 bit, and an intelligent position correction system automatically returns the fixture to its original position if knocked out of place.

The MAC 700 Wash is naturally industry standard DMX-512 controllable and is equipped with both 3-pin and 5-pin XLR connectors. It is also RDM (Remote Device Management) ready for easier configuration, monitoring and management of DMX based systems.
