Clever solutions to old problems are what make the Martin smartMAC™ smart. The new smartMAC from Martin is an extremely bright, fanless 150 W profile luminaire offering a number of unique performance and economic benefits. SmartMAC will liven up any space while reducing operating costs.
The smartMAC features new fanless thermal management which translates to fewer moving parts and unprecedented reliability. With no dust and pollutants forced into the fixture, lamp life is optimized, maintenance kept to a minimum and operation costs reduced.
A highly effective convection cooling system uses the aluminium casing and specially-designed fins to conduct heat away from the fixture head. Fewer moving parts turn a greater proportion of energy into light, reducing heat (and the need for air conditioning) and wear and tear on the system. There is no need to clean the inside of the fixture, including lens and lamp fitting.
“The smartMAC is a unique product and a significant step for Martin,” states Martin Product Manger for Moving Heads, Peter Skytte. “We are proud to be the first company in the industry to provide a solution that fully acknowledges the market’s requirement for a fixture with low cost of operation. This is a product that can be used across many areas of application, expanding the market beyond traditional night venues.”
Superbly optimized optics provides very precise image quality and great depth of field that keeps the image sharp even if the image is projected at a steep angle to the surface. The field angle is 24.5° which allows for a greater projection diameter at shorter distances, perfect for indoor use. And the ability to customize smartMAC means you can throw your logo, text or image on any surface, from any angle.
The smartMAC houses 8 interchangeable dichroic colors plus open, fully indexable, with full and split positions, offering a broad spectrum of colors. A rotating gobo wheel houses 6 interchangeable gobos (pre-installed glass and metal) plus open which can be continuously rotated or indexed to any required and repeatable position.
And with a convenient flip-easy lid, gobos have never been so easy to change.
Available in black or white, smartMAC is naturally industry standard DMX-512 controllable or operates in stand-alone or master/slave mode.
