What It Does

The Selecon Rua Followspot is a 1,400W medium throw luminaire with variable light output. With a beam diameter of 9° to 16° designed for throws approximately 25' to 125', it produces article_ldoct08100fc at 184' (56m) at 9°, while the widest angle, 16°, produces 100fc at 112' (34m). It uses the Philips MSR Gold™ SA/SE, a Quick Fit 1,400W MSR Mini Arc lamp.

The increased light output and beam quality are the result of the latest in short arc lamp technology coupled with Selecon's light collection experience and the unit's large multi-coated lenses.

“The Rua is a very high-performance followspot for the medium-to-larger entertainment venues,” says Jeremy Collins, managing director of Selecon. “Thanks to the latest in short-arc lamp technology, the energy is collected by our rework of the classic ellipsoidal collection system, and the large lenses deliver three to four times as much light as comparative wattage followspots.”

Stephen Fairweather, operations director with Selecon, says, “The lamp is electronically variable from 60% to 120% light output to suit your show or application.”
