Product Description

Bringing you a sensation of freedom has always been one of AYRTON’s most sincere promises. For the first time in its history, AYRTON is launching a weather-sealed effects luminaire that offers as much creative potential indoors as outside – ARGO 6 FX. This luminaire presents a minimalist design incorporating features for total protection against harsh weather with easier internal access, and its front window, made of highly resistant and exceptionally transparent polycarbonate with a V-0 protection rating, is designed to ensure optimal visuals. 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. Due to a new composite alloy, reduction in thickness of the parts, an optimised cooling system, simplified lens guidance, and integration of low-density optical components, AYRTON has been able to reduce overall weight by 20%.

The power and visual performance of ARGO 6 FX is ensured by a proprietary optical system consisting of a cluster of 19 lenses in PMMA with a diameter of 280 mm, combined with 19 glass light guides with an output surface made of an optical micro structure. ARGO 6 FX 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 is equipped with 19 LEDs of 40 W with RGB+W additive colour synthesis that can obtain light output of 13,000 lumens. 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. It offers continuous rotation of the pan and tilt 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 LiquidEffectTM. It can be used alone or in combination with the main LED matrix. By allowing for more precision and exactness, ARGO 6 FX add a breath of creativity. Rediscover a new sense of pure freedom.
