The EconoCyc is a lightweight, compact fixture designed to provide an even wash of light on cycloramas and backdrops. This lighting instrument can also be used as a multi-purpose flood/fill light for stage and studio lighting applications. Each compartment has a state of the art, highly polished and peened reflector.

The EC-1 also features adjustable lamp holders which allows the fixture to accept T-3 to T-8 lamps of three different lengths: 4 11/16" (119 mm), 5 5/8" (143 mm), and 6 9/16" (167 mm). A wide selection of yokes and other hanging hardware is also available to accommodate virtually all overhead mounting configurations. An optional accessory for the EconoCyc is a unique clip that safely secures stripped glass color frames. With a wide range of non-proprietary lamps of varying wattage, length, and widths to choose from, the extremely versatile EconoCyc can easily replace a multitude of standard fixtures.

The EconoCyc has been designed and engineered with a number of innovative details and features that enhance its versatility, efficiency, and performance.
The housing has a rugged slide bracket which allows multiple units to be safely locked together, including the Focusing Cyc and others.
The optional non skid feet are height adjustable and eliminate the need for floor trunnions for most ground row applications.
The thin safety screen is specially designed to allow maximum light output, and is readily removable for easy access to the lamp for quick installation and replacement.
The filter frame is hinged and removable without the use of tools.
UL, cUL and CE listed for 2000 watts.

    Comments about Altman 300-2KW EC-1 Econocyc Borderlight - 1 Section:

    Purchased this to light a DIY 5'x5' diffuser made of PVC and a fitted jersey sheet. Used 3200K 1500W bulb and it produced a beautiful, soft light for use on our weekly video shoots. Great for limited space use because it can sit less than 3 feet behind the diffuser and light it entirely. Will be installing a second one ceiling hung to light a 14' wide green screen. Only downside is that the bulb generates quite a bit of heat, but that is to be expected.
