Product Description

Akin to the ZONDA 9, the latest addition to the ZONDA family designed for stage lighting is an incredibly compact luminaire with unlimited creative potential. ZONDA 3 is a versatile fixture with amazing effects that can switch from beam to wash with great ease. Its speed of movement and reduced dimensions increase its dynamic potential. Because of its size, it is easy to use in compositions with curtains or matrices. Fitted with seven high-performance 40-Watt LED sources with RGB+W, ZONDA 3 offers a proprietary optical system made up of a unique 170 mm mono-block cluster in PMMA, which enhances beam coherence, and seven glass light guides with an output surface that has an optical micro-structure. A 50 mm truncated transmitting lens whose optical surface is equivalent to that of a 70 mm round lens, enables ZONDA 3 to obtain a highly intensive beam with a zoom ratio of 14:1 and a wide zoom range of 4° to 56°. This LED/optical system combination is capable of producing light output of 5,200 lumens and a perfectly homogenous mixture of pastel and saturated colours regardless of the colour combination chosen.

Some luminaires have the power to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. ZONDA 3 FX is a creative, versatile and feature-rich luminaire that borrows from the main attributes of the WASH version. It offers continuous rotation of the pan and tilt movement I.R.S.TM. Individual control of each LED allows you to achieve 3D volumetric effects. Perfect separation between the light sources helps to significantly boost the level of contrast and visual perception of multiple beams. This exceptional luminaire is equipped with a high-definition LiquidEffectTM located between its main lenses which can generate complex graphic effects. It can be used alone or in combination with the main LED matrix. The library of effects in ZONDA 3 FX provides a limiteless source of inspiration. A new optimised cooling system, simplified lens guidance systems, and an ever smarter design of the internal structure have made it possible to reduce the size and weight of the luminaire considerabily Slim-21TM. All these innovations are the exclusive patents of AYRTON. ZONDA 3 FX opens the doors of creativity.
