Form, Design and Ergonomics
The housing is a body made from blacked anodised aluminium, acting also as a radiator transferring the heat away from diodes. In the back there is a pro switch as well as excellent and dependable cermet potentiometers for brightness and colour temperature adjustment. Both the switch and the potentiometers are professional components supplied by leading Japanese and European manufacturers, made to IP67 and – as such – resistant to water, humidity or dust ingress. All these features make A1 suitable for use in such harsh conditions as high humidity, very low temperature or dusty environment.
