Fixture Robe Red Wash Mode 3 not out putting correctly

Recommended Posts

HI Vision,


the fixture for the Robe Red Wash in Mode 3 is not out putting the correct amount of intensity. It looks like only one cell or a quarter of the correct output.


Could you please check this out for us ?


thanks again.

Hi Andy,

This is actually operating as intended. The photometrics of this fixture were never published, and had to be estimated at the time of creation. This is actually fairly normal for fixtures that have been around for a while.


As a tip, any time you notice something you think might be off with a fixture, you can check in Vectorworks. Just open your drawing, select the fixture in question and go to Spotlight>Visualization>Edit Vision Data

There you'll find the comment section for that fixture, where we put any notes about the fixture we might have. Any time you see the word estimated in the comments, that just means the manufacturer didn't tell us, so we've had to make an educated guess.

Which  Robe Red Wash are you using the REDWash 2*36 or the REDWash 3*192? Robe doesn't list a REDWash even in their discontinued products so I can't check to see if there is something special about that mode.

As Mark said the data was probably estimated because the manufacturer did not supply the data.

We can make an request to Robe to supply the data but they may not have it either given the probable age of the fixture.


Can you give us an example of a similar fixture that has the correct output?
