The Solar Simulator Ten Light Array has everything you need to do your proofing at your work station area or light a wall with pure SoLux daylight. The 5" x 5-1/2" x 26-1/2", 500 watt, 15 lb fixture includes: Ten SoLux 36 degree lamps, mounting brackets, and power cord. It provides SoLux lighting recommended by all the color experts. Used with SoLux 4700K bulbs it outputs a whopping 13,900 candle power. You can illuminate an area over 35 square feet with over 120 footcandles at a distance of 10 feet. Used with other SoLux bulbs:

4100K        16,220         140

* Beam Spread of 5000K SoLux Bulbs is 26 degrees resulting in a 20 square foot illuminated area with fixture 10 feet away.
This 120 volt multi-compartment strip light accepts 12 volt, 50 watt, SoLux MR-16 lamps. Each 10 lamp array is comprised of 10 sockets wired in series for a maximum rating of 750 watts.
To achieve a wider beam spread with a softer light order the plano-convex diffuser. To soften light only, order the plano-plano diffuser. NOTE: If you order the optional diffusers, a quantity of 10 are required for each Solar Simulator Ten Light Array unit. It is recommended to replace all ten lamps at once.
I wanted to say once more that SoLux bulbs make all the difference for my photo editing work. Not only do they provide a clean, reliable basis from which to do color editing, but my eyes typically feel less strained when I use them to light my computer work space. I use the SoLux 10-lamp array in my digital dark room and I am very pleased with it. Thanks again for providing this great product.
