The Model MAC 250 Wash by Martin

The MAC 250 Wash is a powerful yet compact and remarkably efficient wash light with extraordinarily fast and quiet movement, a variable frost filter for zoom effect and a CMY color mixing system with a complimenting color wheel.

An extremely effective, multi-layered, dichroic reflector gives the MAC 250 Wash an exceptional output – surpassing its competitive peers using condenser based optical systems.

A CMY (cyan, magenta, yellow) color mixing system provides nearly unlimited color choices while a separate 6 slot plus open color wheel compliments with color correction and other filters. All color slots are replaceable and split colors are possible.

The MAC 250 Wash splashes out light onto a wide area (18°- 35°) with the greatest uniformity of coverage. A simple change of the front lens makes wide beam angles possible. The 59° diffuser lens gives a wide beam angle range of 59°- 67°.

Using the latest fan technology the MAC 250 Wash is an exceptionally quiet fixture. The head and base contain temperature sensors to ensure that fan speeds are kept to a minimum; bringing noise levels right down to suit theater and TV studio applications.

Zoom effect possibilities are provided by a variable frost filter.

The MAC 250 Wash has remarkable speed of movement, paralleled with the new 250 family to ensure a well choreographed show both on stage and truss.

An enhanced high resolution dimming system similar to the MAC 2000 provides remarkably smooth and even dimming, while a fast 20 Hz shutter for strobe effect is standard.

A multi position, tilt lock mechanism is featured to permit easy maintenance and handling.
