Nando 502 Wash

pure emotion

NANDO 502 WASH is an incredibly compact luminaire for stage lighting, specially designed for mixed use, both indoors and outdoors, and in salty environments.

The new minimalist design of NANDO 502 WASH ensures full accessibility to all functions on this lightweight luminaire. By decreasing the thickness of the aluminium parts, optimising the cooling system, simplifying lens guidance, and integrating low-density optical components, AYRTON has been able to reduce overall weight by 20%. NANDO 502 WASH is fitted with 12 high-performance 40 W LED sources with RGB-L additive colour synthesis and a proprietary optical system made up of a unique 210 mm cluster in PMMA. This works in combination with 12 glass light-guides with an output surface made of an optical micro-structure. Perfectly suited to stage lighting, this new LED source offers the advantage of better integration into the colour space and facilitates colour reproduction.

NANDO 502 WASH can achieve a luminous flux of 10,000 lumens and offer a perfectly homogeneous mix of pastel or saturated colours.

NANDO 502 WASH is a precision machine that allows perfect colour reproducibility with a colour rendering index greater than 86. Versatile, it can instantly switch from beam to wash with an excellent zoom ratio of 15:1 and a zoom range of 3.5° to 53°. Its black honeycomb and perfect separation of the light sources help to significantly boost the level of contrast. The anti-reflective treated glass window guarantees an optimal visual result and increased performance. A new submersible ventilation system in a non-waterproof compartment allows for optimal cooling. A complete library of pre-programmed colours allows you to quickly create subtle, dense and contrasted swaths of colour. AYRTON has installed separate LED source control channels on all WASH versions and included a virtually infinite library of effects.
