I was researching CS Par lens options and hitting a bit of a wall. Culling data from individual spec sheets, I notice there seems to be no correlation between lens names. A Wide S4 lens is a 37° Field while a Wide CS lens is a 76° field? Or do I have that wrong?
Why is there no Beam Angle listed for the CS fixtures?
So if I have a light plot that calls for a S4 Par WFL... Do I substitute a CS Narrow?
If I have a plot with a S4 Par VNSP... am I SoL?
What am I not understanding? This doesn't seem right.
(I was also confused on the CS Par spec sheet where it shows a 15.3° Beam & 26.3° Field whereas the table lists "No lens" as 25°)
*Oval beam. Smallest diameter listed.
Since the CS Pars use the same lenses as Desire D40s, you could use the document linked in this article as a reference:
