Levante

the sculptor of light

Ayrton now introduces Levante™, a dramatically miniaturised version of the Bora wash light, and using the same radical concept,

has endowed it with outstanding performance capabilities in the confines of an ultra-compact format. Levante is a marvel of technology that will attract the most demanding lighting designers. The “S” version, weighing only 22 kg, can deliver light output greater than 20,000 lumens while consuming only 300 W. Fitted with a spherical frontal 138 mm lens, the proprietary optical system, using 13 lenses and developed specifically for wash-type applications, features a zoom ratio of over a 9:1 and an impressive zoom range from 6.3° to 58°. The optics produce an extremely uniform flat beam with no hot spot, ensuring a perfect colour mix regardless of the colour combination selected. Ayrton has created a wash luminaire that can actually sculpture light and added a high-transmission diffusion filter to the zoom lens group to erase the edge of the beam without changing its angle. A variable linear frost system was developed to let the user adjust the desired diffusion level with precision. A new barndoors module allows the four shutter blades to be freely positioned on 100% of the surface area so that any object can be framed regardless of the luminaire’s position.

Levante is available in two versions: the S and the TC.

The S version can produce ultra high output, generating metallic white light calibrated at 7000 K and is specially designed for stage applications. The TC version, geared for situations that require perfect colour rendition, has a native colour rendering index greater than 90 and high TM30 readings. Feature-rich from the factory, Levante is not only equipped with a barndoor module but also a CMY colour mixing system, which, combined with a variable CTO and a wheel with seven complementary colours, produces an infinite palette of vivid pastels and saturated colours. A 15-blade iris diaphragm and a wheel with seven indexable rotating gobos are supplied as standard equipment. A new ultra-compact high-output 550 W power supply feeds eight additional motors in the barndoor system, fitting into the same format as Mistral. Levante has a highly efficient phase-change liquid cooling system using a heat pipe that includes a particularly effective ultra-silent ventilation mode, designed for stage and studio applications.
