Comprehensive Toolkit and New Gobo Designs

Anti-Tamper Box for Security and Added Outdoor Protection
Prevents someone from removing power/data from the fixture in more public environments while also enhancing environmental protection around power/data connectors and increasing the ingress protection rating to IP66.

All-Weather and C5M Environmental Protection Plus Active Humidity Control
With an IP65+ outdoor rating, this fixture can be used outdoors and can withstand extreme environmental conditions including rain, snow, heat, and dust over long periods of time. C5M marine-grade salinity protection ensures protection in increased saline environments. The active humidity and heating control system monitors humidity levels inside the fixture to ensure the optical system is working optimally and protected from moisture and condensation.

Ease of Service and Easy Access
A clever gasket design and innovations borrowed from Martin Exterior products enable easy access to gobo changes and serviceable items without the use of specialized tools and without damaging the IP protection.

Networking with Fail-Safe Bypass
New for the ERA family, support for Art-Net and sACN capability enables seamless integration into lighting systems with fail-safe bypass technology, ensuring uninterrupted operation and data passthrough, even in the event of a fixture failure to ensure non-interruption of the network stream.

Ideal Weight and Size Plus Seamless Aesthetics
Rental/touring and installation applications require IP66 fixtures to be lighter and more compact, and the ERA 700 Performance IP comes in below 40kg and measures just 759mm in height.
