Building on the success of the LEDWash 1200 and Spiider‘s advanced technology, the all new Tarrantula is the most powerful LED beam/wash/effects fixture on the market. Now equipped with Robe's innovative lens coating technology which brings benefits such as  bright and clear lenses, no scratches or marks, higher light output and longer intervals between cleaning.

Designed for concerts, car shows, sporting tournaments, indeed any event in a large venue, the Tarrantula is powered by 36x 40W and 1x 60W high powered emitters providing a stunning 20.000 lumen output. The versatile optical system offers an adjustable beam angle, from a tight 4° spot to a super-wide 50° wash, of the highest quality light. The LEDWash 800 inspired Beam Shaper accessory creates a traditional oval beam that can be indexed to precisely cover the desired stage or performance area. Central to the effects capabilities of this fixture is Robe patented MCFE™ - Multi-Coloured Flower Effects, adding yet another spectacular visual dimension. Driven by the 60W RGBW multichip, this creates the sharpest spikes of light, rotating in either direction with controlled speed. Fully saturated and intense colours as well as subtle pastel tones are created with velvety smooth transitions thanks to the integrated internal 18bit LED dimming system. Dynamic video effects are easily achieved by mapping individual pixels controlled by a DMX desk or media servers via sACN with internal HTP merging, DMX or by Kling-Net protocol.
