BMFL™ Spot

The BMFL™ – Bright Multi-Functional Luminaire – much anticipated new lighting fixture from Robe, brings a real game changer in the world of moving lights.

Light source

1700 W OSRAM Lok-it! HTI 1700/PS

Light output

40.000 lm, 250.000 lx @ 5 m, 2.500 lx @ 50 m

Zoom range

5° - 55°


2x gobo wheel, dual graphic wheel, circular and linear prism

| ROBE lighting

The BMFL Spot™ has a custom light source designed for Robe and produces a staggering powerful 250 000 lux at 5 metres – no other product currently on the market can equal this output! Despite its power and comprehensive feature set, it weighs just 36 Kgs… and has a compact body profile.

The lamp produces light at a CRI of 92+, this combined with a refined optical system, 5–55 degree zoom, results in a crisp, high quality fat beam that is truly homogenised and without a hotspot. There are also two colour wheels which include filters that can be utilised to adjust colour temperature and improve the CRI of the white output in aging lamps. There are two rotating gobo wheels – each with six slot&lock gobo positions. There are also two Rotating Prisms. The Dual Graphic Wheels both focus within the same focal plane and the rotation and movement can be individually controlled and varied… to create ultra-cool, infinitely subtle special effects. The frost and dimming functions provide further effects.

Three grades of Frost are available and the dimmer is exceptionally smooth with no distortion, so the full beam width is visible right up to the point at which it disappears. The strobe effect is authentic with up to 10 flashes per second!

Aimed at long-throw applications, the newly patented Robe EMS™ (Electronic Motion Stabiliser) technology, enables the BMFL™ to absorb vibrations from audio outputs, truss movement, sprung or suspended floors, etc. The BMFL™ is a very powerful, feature packed luminaire that will provide a real signature light source for any project.
