Beam Moving Head Light

Table of Contents

Beam moving heads are a relatively new type of moving head that feature an improved light source while still retaining many of the characteristics of traditional moving heads. Domestic 200W beam lights generally include a color wheel (14 colors plus white light), a pattern wheel (17 patterns) and a prism (usually a single octagonal prism)

The primary use for moving head lights is in the music and entertainment industries, but they are also used for other uses such as church services and school events. Therefore, it is very important to know how to choose the right moving head light according to your needs and budget.

Color Wheel

The color wheel is an important addition to the beam moving head light. It allows you to change the beam color for professional results. A color wheel with a dichroic filter is ideal for changing the color of the beam. It allows you to change the color of the beam by gradually mixing cyan, magenta and yellow.

The color wheel is used in moving head lights for various purposes. One of their most common uses is for stage performances. A good moving head light is bright enough to project a bright beam while still allowing the audience to see the entire stage. They also offer color gobo options, a great addition to many lighting effects.

Dimming shutters

Dimming shutters and beam moving head lights are two different types of lighting fixtures. One uses a mechanical dimming system, while the other uses an optical system. Dimming shutters change the intensity of the light output by using a mechanical mechanism of special discs. These shutters change the intensity of the light with tiny adjustments, enabling strobe effects and other unique effects.

Effect Wheel

The effect wheel of the moving head light can provide professional effects to the stage. These lights typically consist of one white light plus n colors, and can be programmed to create any type of effect. Some models have prisms and gobos or two-way rainbows. In addition, they provide a large area of ​​fill light.

Moving head lights can also be divided into two main types: wash lights and contour lights. The beams of the wash lights are wider and take on a color across the stage. Most shows will use a combination of both types of lights. Moving head lights with washing beams can split the beam into dozens of smaller beams with a “pattern” that looks like the light has more moving parts.

The BEAM moving head light consists of a base with an integrated control panel, a head and an arm with an optical system. The arm rotates around its axis and uses a mechanical dimming shutter to control the intensity of the beam. It can also create a strobe effect with a high-speed stepper motor. Additional features of BEAM lamps include a color wheel that converts the hue of the beam, a lens group that focuses the lighting output, and a prism that shapes the beam.

Protection class requirements

A level of protection is required when deploying beam moving head lights as they are susceptible to electrical hazards and must be properly grounded. This is especially important for outdoor applications. In indoor applications, the degree of protection must be at least IP20. In addition, moving head lights must have adequate heat dissipation, as their mechanical structure is directly affected by their power consumption. Poor heat dissipation can lead to undesirable consequences such as electrical parameter drift, gobo burnout, plaque, etc.
