High Speed FloodLight

PALLITE VIII - Continuous, high illuminance floodlights
( Quartz Halogen lights )

The PALLITE VIII is a continuous, high illuminance ring-shaped floodlight specifically designed for industrial and scientific high speed image recording applications.

The PALLITE VIII floodlight features an incandescent ringling design that keeps light on the optical axis for shadowless lighting, thus providing maximum light for confined areas. The PALLITE VIII also permits lighting and shooting through a mirror into an otherwise inaccessible location.

The PALLITE VIII continuous high illuminance floodlight utilises projection lamps with integral dichroic glass reflectors which reflect visible light, but transmit infrared radiation thus producing a relatively cool light source. Four different light levels can be achieved with the four toggle switches at the rear of the PALLITE VIII.

There are two separate power cords to share the 2400 Watt load, meaning standard 240VAC / 10A electrical outlets can be used.

The PALLITE VIII floodlight is ideally suitable for high speed image recording, industrial photography, and general photography within 1 to 2 metres requiring large area, very high continuous illumination, without shadows.

Key features of the PALLITE VIII continuous, high illuminance floodlight include:

  • designed for industrial (not studio) environments
  • very high illuminance level, 100,000 lux at 3 feet, 8" diameter spot
  • camera lens port on axis of illumination
  • wide area of source eliminates shadows
