American DJ debuts mini PAR canSporting a sleek black case, the Micro Wash RGB
The Netherlands - American DJ has unveiled the Micro Wash RGBW, a mini PAR can that's powered by seven bright 1-watt LEDs (2 red, 2 green, 2 blue, and 1 white).

"The Micro Wash RGBW is a scaled-down - but not scaled-back --version of a larger LED colour-mixing par can," said Sebastian Mobers, sales manager Europe for American DJ Europe. "It's got all the features and amenities that you'll find on a professional LED stage par, only it's mini sized -and mini-priced.

"With lighting being more widely used today in entertainment, decorative and display applications, we're finding that there's a growing demand for professional-style fixtures that are smaller in size than conventional units. The Micro Wash RGBW fits right into this trend. Its compact size makes it great for spaces and applications where standard par cans would be too large, yet you get a full-featured unit with a powerful output and smooth RGBW mixing, that produces a top-quality colour wash."

Users are also given a lot of pro-style options when it comes to operating the Micro Wash RGBW. The fixture can be run in six operational modes: Manual Colour Mode, Colour Change Mode, Colour Fade Mode, Auto (Programme Run) Mode, Sound Active Mode, and DMX-512 Mode. Operators can further choose from six DMX modes: 1, 2, 4, 5, 7 or 8-channel modes. A 3-button LED display on the rear panel makes it easy to scroll through the various options and select the desired settings. Additionally, the Micro Wash RGBW can be linked in multiples via 3-pin XLR cable.

As an LED-powered unit, the Micro Wash RCBW provides the advantages of being low on maintenance and energy consumption, says the company. Its long-life LED lamps are rated at 10,000 hours, and it draws just 15W of power at maximum use, despite its bright output.
