Fun-Spot is a family of round lamps, conceived to serve the amusement world and, in general, the world of amusement rides.
The lamps are totally designed and produced in our factory in Italy with first choice materials such as the OSRAM LED, polyurethane resins and gold-plated connection contacts and they are intended for both an indoor and outdoor use. The body is made of Nylon and the lid in methacrylate, in order to grant the maximum transparency and resistance to the damaging effects of the UV rays. The electrical connection is based on commercial wires and the connection is fast and secure thanks to the isolation drilling technique. The whole family is available both in the direct wire connection with an extremely compact volume, and in the version with a special lamp socket for an easy and quick replacement.
The family is composed of 5 formats which differentiate in diameter: 30, 45, 60, 75 and 100 mm and 3 operative modes: Plug&Play, Controllable Pixel and Controllable SMART. Due to technical limits, some modes and functions may not be available for some models.
The optoelectronics range from a minimum of 3 LEDs to a maximum of 60 LEDs according to the dimension of the lamp.
Each lamp can be supplied with RGB or Mono-Colour LEDs.
Fun-Led is a pioneer of the Plug&Play technology since the first years 2000. These lamps are characterized by electronics with internal programming which work without controller, just power supplied with alternating current through a standard ferromagnetic transformer. The lamp can be supplied pre-programmed, with standard sequences of 8 and 16 channels, with customized sequences, or virgin and programmable by the user without limits to the number of channels with a simple programming kit provided by Fun-Led.
The versions with 20 LEDs (size M), 30 LEDs (size L) and 60 LEDs (size XL) are divided into internal sections called chipset (each made up of 10 LEDs) in order to reproduce special light effects inside the lamp itself.
One of the main features of the Plug &Play operative mode is the huge onboard memory size. This characteristic, combined with our programming software, allows to create applications with numerous channels, thus obtaining unimaginable choreographies for a Plug&Play system.
Another important feature is the presence of a temperature sensor inside the lamp, which decreases its brightness in case the temperature exceeds a certain degree, thus protecting the LEDs from overheating when they are used in daylight in environments with extreme temperatures.
All the Plug&Play lamps can be supplied with RGB or Mono-Colour LEDs and equipped with the Super Strobe option.
“Standard WS2811” protocol, adopted also by Fun-Led, based on a serial signal (SPI) which allows to manage the brightness and the colour of each single lamp. The lamps are not numbered and their cascaded connection must follow a precise path based on an initial project. The versions with 20 LEDs (size M), 30 LEDs (size L) and 60 LEDs (size XL) are divided into internal sections called chipset (each made up of 10 LEDs) in order to reproduce special light effects inside the lamp itself.
This operative mode requires a power supply with direct current and a controller board.
Fun-Led offers numerous hardware and software solutions to manage and control its own lamps at best.
The brand-new SMART technology is a Fun-Led absolute and exclusive innovation, which enables to control the single LEDs of the lamp, in order to create light games inside the lamp itself for unique and amazing effects. This is possible thanks to the use of a Fun-Led own communication protocol. This technology is available for the versions with 20 LEDs (size M), 30 LEDs (size L) and 60 LEDs (size XL). The Smart lamps can work only combined with Fun-Led controller and software.
Super Strobe Option
Absolute Fun-Led innovation which characterizes the lamps from diameter 45mm up to diameter 100mm in all the operative modes.
It consists in equipping the lamps with extremely bright white LEDs to grant a very powerful flashing effect integrated into the lamp itself. The intensity and the duration of the impulse can be set and programmed via software.
This characteristic increases the potential of our lamps, ensuring a strong visual impact and spectacular choreographies.
Enhanced is a set of functions which is applied to the Controllable Pixel lamps from diameter 45mm up to 100mm to increase their performances, granting at the same time the absolute compatibility with the WS2811 protocol. That way, the lamps are made more flexible, efficient and unique. The same functions are integrated as default in the Smart operative mode.
- It enables to manage and customize the duration of the Super Strobe, thus allowing to vary its intensity and frequency.
- Thermal protection: thanks to an internal temperature sensor, it is possible to limit the functioning of the lamp in case the temperature exceeds a certain limit, thus protecting the lamp when it is used in daylight in environments with extreme temperatures.
- Emergency mode. A common limit to all Pixel lamps is that, in case of absence of a correct control signal, the lamps are turned off. The Enhanced option overcomes this limit by turning on the lamps of a programmable colour and intensity if there is no correct control signal at power-up. With Enhanced the attraction will never be turned off!!
As anticipated, the Pixel Enhanced lamps can be controlled with a standard controller compatible with the WS2811 protocol, but its default parameters can be reprogrammed only with a Fun-Led controller.
The Fun-Spot lamps are characterized by a strong structure housing the optoelectronics which is resined and forms the waterproof lighting fixture. The structure is made of Nylon 6 charged with white color glass and grants strength, stability and resistance to all weather conditions and thermal changes. The structure can be supplied in other different colors upon request, in order to adapt to various themes. The connection modes to the electrical system are two: “Direct Wire” which provides the direct connection of the wires through the isolation drilling technique and “Frontal Pull Out” which uses a connector to be inserted into a lamp socket. The first solution grants an extremely compact volume and a reduced cost, the second one allows an easy removal of the lamp in case of replacement. In both connection modes the contacts are made of brass which is successively nickeled and gold plated to assure the best contact and protection against oxidation. Four elastic hooks grant a secure, quick and strong fastening of the structure to the lid. The fixing to the support frame is made with two screws. Both the “Direct Wire” and the “Frontal Pull Out” version have a polarization which enables to control the orientation of the lamps during the installation. Due to its reduced sizes, the smallest model is available only in the “Direct Wire” version and is integrated into its lid.
The lid is made of transparent methacrylate which prevents it from yellowing in case of UV exposure and assures an excellent resistance to bad weather conditions. Outside it is perfectly smooth in order to avoid the deposit of dust and dirt and to grant an easy cleaning. The lid is pressure mounted to the base for a quick installation. The standard inner pattern is the “Flower”, then there are following options upon request: “Sphere”, “Frozen” and “Transparent”. These characteristics refer also to the smallest model, though this one is integrated into its base.
D24 and R24 are our new socket models. They consist of a body which can be with two or four isolation drilling contacts and a socket cap which drills the isolation of the wires through the tightening of two screws, thus making the electrical connection. A common characteristic to both socket models is the compact volume and the safety in making a good electrical connection. The body presents a polarization which helps in setting the correct orientation of the lamp on the support.
