FIX-9604 8ft Mega 4Bank Fixture Shell
The Mega Double fixture houses the lamps and is comprised of a removable Louver (x2), Reflector, and Lamp Harness.
Note: The 8ft fixtures include two 4ft Louvers; the 6ft fixtures include two 3ft Louvers.
The Louver and Reflector are held in place with Velcro fasteners. There is a strain relief on the lamp harness to ensure the connectors don’t pull off the lamps during operation. To get the harness away from the fixture, turn the ¼ turn fastener and rotate counter-clockwise to release.
The Harness wiring is color-coded. The same color-code must match at each end of the lamp for proper operation.
Fixture can be used in several configurations:
1) Complete fixture with all components combined.
2) "Harness only" — The wiring harness is removed from the fixture so the user can build a softbox, hide behind Plexiglass or rig into tight locations. The wiring harness uses Kino Flo designed lamp connectors that grab the lamp pins so lamps can be operated independently of the fixture.
3) "Harness + Reflector" — Same as above, but may want to use the reflector to give more punch and direction to the light.
4) Can use Louver to give direction to the light or remove Louver to give broad coverage over an area, such as lighting over a car, motorcycle or other large objects.
The fixtures can be used as a daylight source by using Kino Flo KF55 lamps or a tungsten source using Kino Flo KF32.
Kino Flo lamps are color-correct and safety-sleeved. The lamps are safety-sleeved because they can operate inside the fixture or independently with only the wiring harness. Additionally, on a production set the lamps are often changed out. The safety-sleeving offers protection during lamp changes for the user as well as the talent on the set.
