Ayrton is excited to announce the official launch of its new IP65-rated Argo 6 Wash and Argo 6 FX fixtures at 10am (CET) on Tuesday 5th September 2023.
Argo 6 – Ayrton’s first weather-sealed effects luminaire
Feel the Freedom!
For the first time in its history, Ayrton is launching a weather-sealed effects luminaire that offers as much creative potential indoors as outdoors. Argo 6 presents a minimalist design incorporating features for total protection against harsh weather with easier internal access.
Compact and lightweight
A new composite alloy, reduction in thickness of the parts, an optimised cooling system, simplied lens guidance and integration of low-density optical components, mean Ayrton has been able to reduce overall weight by 20%. Meanwhile, the placement of pan & tilt motors in the base and head of the luminaire avoids the constraint of weatherproofing the yoke arms. A new submersible ventilation system in a non-waterproof compartment allows for optimal cooling.
Available as Wash or FX versions, Argo 6 is equipped with 19 LEDs of 40W with RGB+W additive colour synthesis that can deliver a light output of 13,000 lumens. Its 280mm anti-reflective treated glass front window is designed to ensure optimal visuals and offers increased performance. Argo 6 can obtain a highly intense beam with a zoom ratio of 14:1 and a wide zoom range from 4° to 56°.
Argo 6 FX
Argo 6 FX is a versatile fully-equipped luminaire designed for a multitude of applications. It borrows from the main features of the Wash version and offers continuous rotiation of the pan and gtilt movement I.R.S.TM. Argo 6 FX is equipped with a high-definition liquid effect system enhanced by a translucent honeycomb that can generate complex graphic effects Liquid EffectTM.
Argo 6 Wash
For the first time, Ayrton has provided individual control of the LEDs on the Argo 6 Wash version and added a virtually infinite library of effects. Argo 6 Wash is a precise machine that can obtain perfect colour reproduction. A complete library of pre-programmed colours allows quick creation of subtle, dense and contrasting swaths of light. Its black honeycomb and perfect separation of the light sources help to signifcantly boost the level of contrast.
Argo 6 Wash and Argo 6 FX can be used alone or in combination with the main LED matrix. By allowing for more precision and exactness, they add a breath of creativity. Part of Ayrton’s Multi Sources IP65 6 Series, Argo 6 allows the rediscovery of a new sense of pure freedom.
Argo 6 is already being adopted worldwide by major players with PRG Middle East being the first company in the world to take stock of the new fixtures, closely followed by Procom and Media Pro, Lunatec of Poland and Axente in France; Ambersphere Solutions in the UK, ACT Entertainment in North America, Molpass in Italy and Show Technology in Australia.
