BB&S Lighting has announced the new Pipeline Reflect System, which doubles the light output over earlier technology.
Based on the same one-inch cylindrical linear Remote Phosphor Pipes, BB&S said the updated system incorporates a new range of superior quality reflectors offering optimal control, double the output and disperses light spanning a 90-degree degree angle with practically no spill.
Like all Pipeline fixtures, it runs off 48-volt power sources for precise dimming and optimal strobe capability, especially when used with the optional BB&S 4-Way Controller.
The Reflect System utilizes the same 95 TLCI (3200 degree K, 4300 degree K or 5600 degree K), accurate color rendering remote phosphor one-inch/25mm diameter LED Pipes for which Pipeline is known. Available in 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 8-foot lengths, Reflect housings are made of rigid, polished aluminum with a flat base and 1.5-inch high contoured walls with a two-inch wide opening. It offers twice the foot-candle output of the Pipes alone.
The Reflect System is ideal for studio grids, or anchor desks for clean up light on talent. Convenient for set designers, the housings are black to match the predominant set color, which helps make a clean looking installation. Reflect housing is easy to mount. A built-in speed rail-type solution allows for attaching to grids or they can be placed side-by-side or end-to-end, using a range of accessories.
Made for customization, Reflect units feature a three-pin XLR plug to control the electronic configuration. For plug and play, fixtures may be operated via the BB&S 4-way Controller (which has four 40-watt channels), with optional wireless DMX/RDM control or built-in DMX 512 in/out (all function). Controllers can be wall or ceiling mounted.
BB&S also offers Pipeline 10, 20, 30 and 40 watts manually controlled Driver Dimmers with three-pin XLR to plug into Reflect fixtures so they can be powered by optional 20 or 65 watt power supplies or used with 14.4VDC batteries.
