Martin Mac 500

 The MAC 500 is an automated moving head profile spotlight designed for a 575 watt discharge source. It provides 18 combinable dichroic color filters, nine static and five indexed-rotation gobos, variable iris and focus, rotating three-facet prism, continuous full-range dimming, strobe effects up to 23 Hz, and 16-bit resolution movement. The MAC 500 E is an electronic ballast version of the MAC 500. The electronic ballast provides flicker-free operation, an economic power-saving mode, compatibility with 100 and 120 volt AC supplies, and considerably lighter weight.
