BB&S Lighting recently announced its new Pipeline Reflect System. Based on the same 1-inch cylindrical linear Remote Phosphor Pipes, it incorporates a new range of superior quality reflectors offering optimal control, double the output and disperses light spanning a 90° angle with practically no spill. Like all Pipeline fixtures it runs off of 48V for precise dimming and optimal strobe capability, especially when used with the optional BB&S 4-Way Controller.
The Reflect System utilises the same 95 TLCI (3200°K, 4300°K or 5600°K), accurate colour rendering remote phosphor 1-inch/25mm diameter LED Pipes for which Pipeline is known. Available in 1’, 2’, 3’, 4’, 6’ and 8-inch lengths Reflect housings are made of rigid, polished aluminium with a flat base and 1.5-inch high contoured walls with a 2-inch wide opening. The new Reflect System offers twice the foot-candle output of the Pipes alone.
The Reflect System is ideal for studio grids, or anchor desks for clean up light on talent. Convenient for set designers, the housings are black to match the predominant set colour, which helps make a clean looking installation. Another benefit is the Reflect housing’s easy mounting capability. A built-in speed rail-type solution allows for attaching to grids or they can be placed side-by-side or end-to-end, using a range of accessories.
Made for customisation, Reflect units feature a 3-pin XLR plug to control the electronic configuration. For plug and play, fixtures may be operated via the BB&S 4-way Controller (which has four 40W channels), with optional wireless DMX/RDM control or built-in DMX 512 in/out (all function). Controllers can be wall or ceiling mounted.
BB&S also offers Pipeline 10W, 20W, 30W and 40W manually controlled Driver Dimmers with 3-pin XLR to plug into Reflect fixtures so they can be powered by optional 20W or 65W power supplies or used with 14.4VDC batteries. The 3-Pin XLR within the fixture results in a cleaner installation. Barn doors, grid accessories, and optional removable gel filters will be available soon.
