The industry standard Source Four Zoom optical system has been integrated with a unique, watertight housing by ETC to create the Source Four HID Zoom eX outdoor lighting system.  

Powered by the 12,000-hour MasterColor CDM 150w lamp, Zoom eX is rated IP65 for exterior lighting applications and is ideal for gobo/pattern projection and tight shutter cuts on specific structures or architectural details.  

The Source Four HID Zoom eX is available from Jands , a major distributor of professional lighting systems.  

Source Four HID Zoom eX exterior lighting system features a rugged, die-cast and extruded aluminium construction with a unique watertight exterior housing seal. The exterior housing conveniently hangs from a yoke during focus, freeing both hands for adjustment.  

Precision extruded optical rails with positive lens position locking ensure precise and accurate focusing at any angle from 15 degrees through to 30 degrees.  

ETC’s proven 20 gauge stainless steel shutters are used in a tri-plane assembly that rotate ±25º so that all shutter angles are achievable. There is a slot for glass or stainless steel gobos or patterns.
