Sumolight Introduces Sumolaser

The IP65-rated daylight point source is based on a new class of laser emitters.

Sumolight has introduced the Sumolaser, a daylight point source based on a new class of laser emitters.

The Sumolaser can put a precision beam of light on a stage or project miles into the sky. Weighing 10.8 pounds, the fixture rivals the output of traditional 18K HMIs weighing more than 10x as much. 

The Sumolaser’s individual units are designed into a hexagonal form factor. Each fixture can be controlled individually via DMX or local touchscreen, and they can also be built into custom combination patterns. The Sumosnap quick-release connecting system effectively allows multiple fixtures to join into arrays; it provides a secure, screw-free interface to truss systems, standard junior pins and other grip hardware. 

The Sumolaser includes a seven-engine laser module producing 3-degree beam angles that unite to form a single, tight beam. As more units are added with Sumosnap adapters, the beam width increases, but the angle remains the same, allowing greater output and a fuller beam.

Featuring a 6,000K color temperature, the IP65-rated Sumolaser draws 175 watts of power and outputs 150,000 lux/45,700 footcandles (measured at 328'). The laser module is 8.03" x 7.65" x 7.56". The Yoke-Mount, Control Box, spigot and seven-engine module together measure 18.9" x 11.42" x 12.6".
