About K 5600

The Joker Bug 800 represents a natural step for K 5600, an extension of it's line of HMI daylight fixtures. After the enormous popularity of the 200 and the 400, the full f-Stop increment seemed logical. Another determining factor for the creation of this particular fixture size is the main power limitations associated with the location shooting.

The next size up (1200W) monopolizes a full circuit where as the Joker Bug 800 will allow for another source such as a 400 while delivering twice the output of that 400. The Joker Bug 800 is comparable to a 3200/4000 quartz fixture but with a power draw of only 12.5 Amps. In the Bug-Lite mode (no optics) the main application is in traditional Lightbanks as well as Lanterns where it uses the sides as a large reflector, collecting the maximum output of the lamp and filling the front screen very evenly.

It is very powerful in daylight interiors and can operate in any position including pointing down. The BEAMER optical accessory turns the BUG-LITE into a Joker Bug, a directional PAR unit offering various beam patterns through quick lens changes. The Joker Bug 800 offers the most flexible optical configuration for location lighting by achieving Spot to Flood ratios 55 to 1 with beam angles from as narrow as 5 degrees to as wide as 45 degrees.

The Joker Bug 800 is delivered with a Clear Glass Beaker when reaching for full intensity is important, and a Frosted Glass Beaker when light quality is the prime concern. The 800W lamp was specified with UV Stop Quartz. The Amount of energy dissipated would not allow for completely closed Glass Beaker design. The lamp with it's G22 base remains very compact and easily transportable. The small, quiet ballast can be hidden anywhere and plugs in any circuit without risk of overloading.
