The UV400 high intensity 400W ultra violet floodlight has proved a popular choice for visual effects since its launch last year, say manufacturer UV Light Technology. The level of international sales has prompted the Birmingham-based company to introduce a built-in electronic 'smart0box' to allow ‘plug in and switch on’ use anywhere in the world. The new electronics also facilitate power variation down to 60% of maximum, enabling adjustment of the light intensity and increasing of bulb life through under-running. A new rotating barndoor unit has also been added to the range, allowing more directed lighting effects. Light intensity may be adjusted by using Par 64 scrollers, which also permit rapid on/off ultra violet effects peviously not achievable with non-hot restrike ultra violet floodlights.
