This Phoenix Ellipsoidal body with G9.5 lamp base from Altman allows the buyer to purchase the base unit body by itself and to mate it with any standard lens barrel ranging from 50° to 19° and on to narrow 10° and 5° spot barrels if needed. All Phoenix bodies come with stainless steel locking shutters making drifting shutters during production a thing of the past. The gobo holder can also be locked in its slot.
All tungsten fixtures produce a lot of heat, so the Phoenix comes with large, heat-resistant handles and locking levers. Other features include a yoke with double tilt locking handles and which is etched with tilt index markings. The shutter assembly can also be rotated through a full 360°, making proper illumination of the chosen area that much easier. In addition critical positioning of the lamp is possible in three axes within the reflector.
The Phoenix is built to withstand the inevitable impacts that come with traveling event production. It is constructed of cast and sheet metal throughout and the reflector is spring-mounted for shock resistance.
