The K5600 Joker 1600 Bug-Lite HMI Head is a powerful continuation of the Joker generation of daylight HMI fixtures. At 1,600W, the Joker 1600 is comparable to over 6,000W of quartz output and produces twice as much, or one full stop more light, as the Joker 800. The bare bulb head ships with a 9.0' head cable, clear glass Beaker lamp protector and safety wire. An optional Bug-Lite Octo speed ring that fits Chimera and other major brand heat-resistant softboxes is available. The fixture is compatible with Beamer and Zoom Beamer reflectors and a host of lenses, scrims, barndoors and other accessories. Note: The Joker 1600 requires a 1,600W electronic ballast and an HMI lamp for use.
