More Information

Smart Socket ®

In 1999 Robolights designed, developed and launched the Smart Socket® - the stage lighting industry's first ABS injection moulded socket outlet box for use on lighting bars bringing an end to the need to adapt standard electrical accessories. Internally wired lighting bars could now be manufactured with a purpose designed, easy to fit and cost effective product. The now industry standard Smart Socket® is in use worldwide and shipped in several variants to accept the various electrical connectors used in the entertainment industry.

Smart Clamp ®

2005 saw the launch of the Smart Clamp®, a product to supersede the humble hook clamp that until now has been used almost exclusively for attaching stage lighting equipment to lighting bars. The Smart Clamp allows a stage lantern to be hung onto a lighting bar and locked in place without the need to use tools. The Smart Clamp self closes around the lighting bar using it's patented action. Tightening the single lock knob secures the lantern in place whilst gripping the lighting bar at the same time.
