No strings attached on SGM’s new battery driven G-1 Beam

G 1 White  

With the ground-breaking G-1 Beam moving head, SGM has succeeded in offering numerous cutting-edge features in a physically compact chassis.
A sharply defined, flat and uniform beam that operates rapidly in every movement provides intense mid-air beam effects through a high power white LED light source and a colour wheel as well as a gobo wheel. The results are high contrast levels and an extreme brightness. Adding to its uniqueness, this moving head is not only IP65-rated and maintenance-free, but also offers the exclusive choice of being either battery-driven with an impressive 10-12 hours operation in typical use or being connected wired mains power.

It provides a staggering output of 61,910 lux at a 3-metre distance and a colour temperature of 6,500K on pure white light. The G-1 is equipped with a 2.8˚ fixed beam angle; however, it can deliver an aperture zoom adjustable down to 0.3˚. Its motorized focus is both fast and precise.

Using USITT standard DMX512, the G-1 can be controlled via wireless DMX or via cabling.

The G-1 comes in two varieties: with or without the base unit. With the base, usability is diverse as a battery can be inserted and thus positioning is independent from any power source proximity, and the IP rating ensures no need of bulky domes for outdoor application. Without the base, the G-1 can be mounted onto the ceiling or a rig in e.g. a club environment for that powerful and bright beam effect that operates in high speed movements using an external power supply.
The G-1 features a gobo wheel of 19 gobos + oscillation effect + open and a colour wheel of 14 colours + open that add further dimensions and dynamics to this compact moving head, which is expanded by attributes such as gobo shake function, split colour effects and continuous clockwise  and counter-clockwise  pan rotation. The gobo projection of the G-1 is outstanding for a beam fixture as it is very crisp and detailed.

The G-1 is a lightweight luminaire, weighing only 9.1 kg/20 lbs. including its batteries. It can operate in extreme temperatures from -10˚C to 40˚C in all kinds of weather.

The movement operation of this moving head demonstrates a stunning ongoing and speedy performance with a smooth pan response adding continuous bidirectional rotation and a tilt range up to 240˚, which for example makes it perfect as a supplement to any stage light set where the sharp beams resemble laser beams.

Furthermore, SGM has introduced a patent pending position pre-set programming for the G-1 making it exceptionally easy to control and programme.
