The IP65-rated Rivale Wash

Europe - Ayrton has announced the official launch of its new IP65-rated Rivale Wash, the first ultra-equipped wash luminaire in Ayrton's new Ultimate range. A new addition to its IP65 3 Series, Rivale Wash has been developed especially for mixed indoor and outdoor use, including in salt-laden environments.

Rivale Wash, has been designed to emphasise volume, create depth and dreamlike atmospheres that leave a lasting impression. Whether playing with light and shadow, highlighting a detail, mastering chiaroscuro, searching for the perfect nuance or chiselling space, this new-generation luminaire delivers incomparable satisfaction. In addition, Ayrton’s signature moves of continuous rotation on the pan and tilt axes are included as standard to ensure maximum design creativity and freedom. Rivale Wash’s incredible ability to create extremely subtle atmospheres makes it an outstanding Wash projector.

An all-new 170mm Fresnel lens giving an ultra-intensive 4° beam has been specially developed for Rivale Wash. This has been created for use with framing shutters, while also facilitating the use of geometric gobos or ovalization lenses. The new Fresnel lens also significantly improves colour mixing and delivers 10% more light compared with a conventional Fresnel lens. Rivale Wash’s proprietary 12-lens optical system offers a zoom ratio of 14:1 and a range from 4° to 57°. 

Rivale Wash is equipped with a new 430W high efficiency sealed monoblock LED module calibrated at 6500K, offering a luminous flux of 28,000 lumens with optimum positioning on the black body to achieve perfect light neutrality.

A system of four individually positionable barn doors allows precise shaping capability over the full 100% surface area, regardless of lantern position.

Rivale Wash adopts a new high-definition progressive CMY colour mixing system that delivers perfect colour reproduction as soon as the filter is inserted, regardless of the colour combination selected. An extended progressive CTO enables precise adjustment of colour temperature from 2700K to 6500K, and a seven-position colour wheel with special filters completes the palette of tools dedicated to colour creation. For greater flexibility of use, Rivale Wash offers subtle adjustment of the colour rendering index from 70 to 88.

An indexable, rotating gobo wheel with seven adjustable-speed rotating gobos (in both directions), a CMY and RGB graphic effects wheel, a 15-blade iris, a 0%-100% variable linear frost and a dimmer/strobe complete the effects package.

Rivale Wash weighs just 29.7 kg, offering outstanding performance for a product in this category. Compact, handy, silent and hard-wearing, Rivale Wash brings precision and mastery of nuance in its quest for perfection.
