Martin Mac 250 KryptonMartin Professional's 250-watt moving head fixture, the Mac 250 Profile, has been thoroughly updated both inside and out, spawning two new versions. The MAC 250 is now available in either the full-featured Mac 250 Entour or the leaner Mac 250 Krypton.
The driving force behind the new versions is the design of the Mac 2000. The new Mac 250 series, however, comes in a smaller size and at a lower price.

Mac 250 Krypton

The Mac 250 Krypton features a new optical system for brighter output and improved image quality, new gobo patterns, improved movement, all-new design and more. The Mac 250 Krypton is suited to the club and installation market, retail and leisure applications, special events and more.
A new and improved glass reflector produces higher light output than condenser based optical systems. A high precision achromatic lens system maximizes optical efficiency of the Philips MSD 250/2 lamp (included) for superior image quality.
A newly designed rotating and indexing gobo wheel offers a new selection of replaceable metal and dichroic gobos giving the MAC 250 Krypton an original and fresh look. The 16-bit precision gobo wheel houses 7 slots plus open, and the new design makes gobo changes fast and easy. Color is provided from a motorized color wheel housing 12 replaceable dichroic color filters plus open with split position possibilities.
New pan and tilt motor technology produces improved movement, making the Mac 250 series fixtures the fastest moving heads that Martin has ever manufactured. An automatic reset function is realigning the fixture in seconds if knocked out of position.
At first glance, the most noticeable difference is the new MAC 2000 inspired modular housing. The new design is making service and maintenance easier with fast access to modules and critical components. And the stylish look allows the Krypton to fit smartly into any application.
The Mac 250 Krypton includes a fast full range dimmer/shutter to allow smooth color and effect transitions by varying the intensity of the light output. Strobe effects are possible up to 20 Hz.
A bi-directional, 3-facet prism is smooth and rotates at variable-speeds, adding unique effects to gobo projection. The prism can also be replaced giving lighting professionals an added customizable feature. The Mac 250 Krypton is also equipped with a remote focus and various preset patterns.
The Krypton includes a light sensitive yellow display, 3 and 5 pin XLR connectors for data and an easily switchable power supply covering worldwide voltages and frequencies.
