If I remember right there is a lense I am to replace every 2 years on my powerspot 250s. Is this the outer lense? If so where can I order parts. Thanks, TAP

Yo Tap I have 2 power spot 250 and have around 150 hours on them. What lense needs to be replaced after 2 years or does it go by operating hours ??
Hi Guys,
Just reading your post. FYI, you shouldn't have to replace any lenses?
Curiouse to know where this information came from? Let me know.
The instruction manual.

I was going to comment, but felt its better for an elation rep to let them know which is right rather then my opinion.

It says that then lens should be replaced every two years, but really it only needs to be replaced when it gets cloudy or breaks IMO. The manual is referring to the outer condensing lens, by the way, the one you can touch (but shouldn't) on the front of the head.

Overall, you shouldn't need to replace any lens' on your power spot until it breaks.

This is the answer I was looking for. See I had two lights on the floor one night and someone ran a mic cord over the housing so when the light spun around it got stuck and knocked the lens loose. I fixed and it is fine for now but I did notice that the lens looked a little imperfect. I think I will replace the lenses on this pair of fixtures then. Thanks, Tap
Alright guys, I read throught the manual and could not find the lens replacement section.

The last pages of the manual give a maintanane schedule saying that the outside optical lense should be cleaned monthly, but nothing about replacing lenses every two years. Help me out here.

Here is a link to the manual: Power Spot User Manual

Best regards,
Page 40

"The lens
should be changed at the first sign of ware, usually in about 1 – 2 years
(lens will begin to look cloudy)."
Yes.. Your right!! You got me on this one.
It says that you need to change the lens.

However after years of working with these lights I wouldn't worry about it much. These lenses last years!!!

Now if you have them in an enviorment with alot of smoke, cigarete smoke and daily use like a club or bar, then this lens will take a lot of abuse and replaceing it will improve your output. But if your a mobile guy doing shows on the weekends, I wouldn't be to concerned about replaceing this lens.

Best regards,
Hey John I think you should send us all Elation Black Satin Jackets for that find.
