Product Highlights
  • G9.5 Lamp Base

This black-finished 3.5Q-5-MT 48 Degree Ellipsoidal from Altman is a compact, lightweight spotlight which produces an adjustable sharp or soft edged beam. The 3.5Q series is designed for today's long life, high intensity tungsten halogen lamps up to 575W. Four adjustable integrated stainless steel framing shutters provide beam shaping ability and the pattern slot and (gobo) holder provide the ability to project visual images. The 3.5Q is compatible with Altman Lighting's optional STD-600 yoke-mounted DMX dimmer.

While primarily designed for theater and studio applications, the 3.5Q Series is also useful in displays, show windows, museums and nightclubs where precision controlled accenting is desirable.
