Helios is a range of energy saving floodlights, fresnels and profile spotlights from CCT Lighting, specifically designed as lightweight luminaires for semi-permanent, architect or lighting designer conceived installations. Helios luminaires are based on the Minuette range of spotlights.
Helios luminaires are a two-part item, comprising of a luminaire with discharge lamp, together with external control gear. In this case the rear compartment of the spotlight houses the lampholder, and the ballast is mounted separately. Each Helios luminaire must always be used in conjunction with the separate control gear
Helios Luminaires are constructed from aluminium extrusions, formed aluminium and steel sheet. The front part of the two sectioned spotlights contains a reflector and a G12 lampholder for a 150W or 70W metal halide discharge lamp. All Helios luminaires come in Black or White (RAL 9010) epoxy powder finish as standard, but most other colours are available to order. The aluminium yokes on both the luminaires and the single control gear can be used with most types of suspension equipment. Tilt adjustment is by means of a T-handle grip knob and clamping disc on each unit. The six way control gear is more appropriately wall mounted.
Helios floodlights have been designed to give an even, asymmetric beam of light - ideal for general or colour wash illumination of walls, vertical displays and the like. A sprung colour frame is finger located and can be rapidly fitted in the front magazine.
The control gear for the helios flood is an electronic ballast. The 150W double-ended lamp is supported on two R7s lampholders and the user is protected when changing the lamp by automatic ejection of the mains lead. The tempered front safety glass hinges forward with the front frame for lamp change.
