Fast, Focus Technology


FFT_Logo_inverted.jpg
ensures traditional luminaires meet the challenges of entertainment lighting in the 21st century.
  
Current luminaire pan and tilt focus settings lack precision, are subject to slipping once set and can only be accurately positioned by turning on the lamp and focusing the beam once the luminaire has been mounted in the required position.

Selecon’s Fast Focus Technology is a simple, precise and economic means to preset the luminaire BEFORE flying out the bar thereby saving on expensive time during the focus session. Using the information from the Lighting Designer's manual calculations or design software visualisation programs, the Rama FFT system allows for full presetting of pan, tilt and beam focus while the luminaire is being rigged!

The precision engineered components ensure accurate lock off, reducing the need for  expensive and frustrating re-focus calls even if the presetting capability is not required.

    From March 2007 the original 'squeeze and slide' device will be removed and units will be supplied with screw focus knob supplied on all other models.
The squeeze action device will continue to be available as an accessory for those who wish to use it. Fitting the device is simply a matter of screwing it into the threaded nut which holds the screw focus knob mounted on the reflector assembly slide.
Order Code – 17RAFTF.


SAVE Money

The capability to preset and precisely position the luminaire has the potential to substantially reduce the time spent focusing, whether for a theatre show or a one night corporate presentation.
