300W Fresnel, PC, Profile display spotlights

Minim Spotlight (1980 - 1983) was a fresnel only. 

The Minim range was introduced in 1983 and consisted of a Fresnel, PC, and the Minim 23 profile spot. The Minim 23 was intended to be a direct replacement for the Patt.23, which was retired in 1983. The range was taken out of production in 1990, then the Minim F and PC were relaunched in 1991/92 with a new specification, excluding the Minim 23.
Colour filter size: 125mm square

Replacing the lamp:
The Minim uses an M38 300W lamp. Before changing the lamp be sure to unplug the lantern as there is no safety cut-out. The lamp is accessed via a removable panel on the top surface of the lantern, which is held in place by a single screw. Be sure to not touch the quartz envelope of the new lamp while inserting it.
Buy the lamp from White Light
