The Comet is coming says Horton Engineering

April 26, 2007
Date Announced: 26 Apr 2007 Horton Engineering announces the Procolour Comet luminaire. From conception to production, the Procolour Comet has been carefully crafted to resolve the deficiencies afflicting many LED-based fixtures. For instance, Filament Emulation® ensures smooth, DMX-controlled colour fades similar to those of tungsten elements, rather than the jerky, stepped fades of competing LED products. Additionally, a subtle combination of Luxeon® emitter positioning and the latest Carclo® micro-reflectors endow the 81-watt Procolour Comet with a long throw and unprecedented overall beam consistency.The innovations continue, with features that will cement the Procolour Comet’s reputation as one of the most flexible luminaires available. Thermal efficiency is so effective that cooling fans are not required, even though the Procolour Comet can happily operate at ambient temperatures up to 50 deg.C. Every Procolour Comet is also supplied with a specially created WeatherSeal® cable gaiter which instantly raises the total dust and moisture protection level to IP64. This is despite using industry standard XLR and Neutrik® PowerCon® connectors. Such a combination of silence, weatherproofing and quality light output will place the ProColour high on the kit list of broadcasters and architectural designers alike. However, the Procolour Comet is also engineered to survive the rigours of life on the road due to its machined aluminium body and tough, high impact plastic casings. Thanks to intelligent selection of materials, the Procolour Comet is light too. A mere 3.5Kg means less stress on the rig and yet another reason to stock these all round, workhorse fixtures in readiness for a range of tasks.About Horton Engineering, creators of the Procolour CometHorton Engineering was created due to a strong conviction that LED-based lighting fixtures had yet to show their real potential.
