MAC 700 Wash

The MAC 700 Wash is an exceptionally powerful wash light with a clean, even, soft-edged beam, a motorized zoom, indexible beamshaper and rich CMY color mixing.

After all is said and done, a beautifully clean even beam from center to edge is the foundation upon which everything else lies. We believe we have achieved just this in the MAC 700 Wash, creating the ideal balance between optical performance and output, giving an incredibly powerful beam of smooth uniform light.

A 700 watt, double-ended, short arc lamp works in harmony with a tremendously efficient reflector and optical system to punch out more light than you are used to seeing in fixtures this compact. The 700 Wash’s brightness is truly astounding, matching and surpassing the output of higher wattage lamp sources.

Soft Edge Beam
The MAC 700 Wash has soft, uniform beam edges and an even light and color output.
This gives a smooth distribution across projected surfaces allowing seamless overlaps of beams for large stage and set areas.

Quiet Operation
The MAC 700 Wash combines a clever heat management design with head and base temperature sensors to ensure that fan speeds are kept to a minimum bringing noise levels right down to suit theatre and TV studio applications.

Motorized Zoom
A variable motorized zoom allows for full control over the beam angle of the MAC 700 Wash. Without restrictions or lens changes, the fixture zooms continuously from a slender 12.5 to a broad 66° (tenth peak angles). Much effort has been put into ensuring that the beam maintains a smooth and even form at every step along the zoom range.

Seamless CMY Color Mixing
A CMY color-mixing system mixes colors instantly and accurately. The system employs six, coated dichroic flags providing a full spectrum of fantastic rich colors. Mechanically short distances make for extremely fast color bumps while the award-winning optical design of the MAC family ensures smooth, even light and color distribution.

Eight Position Color Wheel
As well as the CMY color mixing system the MAC 700 Wash features a separate color wheel with eight slots plus open. Color selections may be changed quickly and easily, offering a seemingly limitless array of color combinations and effects.

Indexing & Rotating Beam Shaper
The beam shaping system dynamically changes the round light beam into a rotating, elliptical form for accurate beam placement on façades, stages and objects.
The beam can be indexed through 360° for total precision while the continuous rotation also creates an arresting mid-air effect.

Variable Color Temperature 4000 K 3200 K
Provides flexibility in color temperature and gives warmer and more saturated shades of colors. This is also a major benefit when calibrating fixtures with a disparity in lamp age and therefore actual color output. It is additionally useful in matching color temperatures when working alongside tungsten fixtures or in theatre and television applications.
The range with a HTI lamp is 7500 to 3200K.

Dimming and Strobing
An accurate full range dimmer/shutter system allows for both smooth and fast intensity changes, whether it is a long fade, or a snap to blackout. As a shutter, accelerated strobe effects are possible up to 10 Hz.

Flicker-Free Light
The PFC electronic ballast provides the fixture with a flicker-free image making it ideal for television and film work. It also allows the Wash to run in a reduced power mode; extending lamp life and further reducing their low noise output. Hot lamp re-strikes are also possible, further ensuring lamp preservation.

Rapid & Precise Pan & Tilt
540° pan and 246° tilt are achieved through Martin’s outstanding pan and tilt motors, drivers and software, which give rapid movement with noticeably less noise than other fixtures on the market. An intelligent positioning correction system automatically returns the Wash to its original position should it accidentally be knocked out of place, while a multi position, tilt-lock mechanism is also featured to permit easy maintenance and handling.

Easy Maintenance
An exceptionally functional modular design allows you fast and easy, tool-free access to critical components, reducing maintenance periods and saving time and money. A focus on product efficiency also means the MAC 700 Wash has strong standardized modules and parts shared with the MAC 700 Profile, simplifying logistics and lowering stock investment.

The MAC 700 Wash is DMX512-controllable, equipped with both 3-pin and 5-pin XLR in/out sockets, and is totally compatible with coming standards such as Remote Device Management.

Border Proof
An auto-sensing power supply covers worldwide voltages and frequencies allowing the fixture to operate anywhere in the world.

Tour Proof
The Martin flight case, designed for the MAC family, is recognized in the industry as one of the best purpose-built cases for the transportation of lighting fixtures. Made of durable ply, it is covered in a tough water-repellent coating for added protection.
