USA - ADJ has announced the expansion of its popular HEX series of LED pars with the introduction of three durable new fixtures that all feature a tough weatherproof casing design. The 7P HEX IP, 12P HEX IP and 18P HEX IP combine the wide colour palette of HEX LEDs with the flexibility of a robust all-weather IP65 rated casing to create truly versatile professional wash fixtures.
Each of the new pars feature powerful 12-Watt hex colour RGBAW+UV (red, green, blue, amber, white + UV) LEDs which allow for a huge gamut of colours to be created. These include both cool and warm white, for stage illumination, as well as UV-infused hot pink, lime green and electric blue. The inclusion of the UV element also means that the fixture can create the classic ‘black light’ effect that causes white and neon-coloured surfaces to glow brightly. The LEDs are flicker-free, therefore suitable for filming applications, and offer an impressive operational life of approximately 50,000 hours.
All three fixtures have a 30-degree beam angle, which makes them suitable for a wide variety of duties including stage washing, dancefloor illumination and architectural up-lighting and down-lighting. The 7P HEX IP incorporates seven LEDs, for a total output of 84W, and has a compact casing design that makes it ideal for situations where space is at a premium. The slightly larger 12P HEX IP features twelve LEDs, giving it a total power rating of 144W, meaning that it is suitable for situations were increased brightness is required but a relatively compact casing is also desirable. Finally, the largest fixture in the range – the 18P HEX IP – features eighteen LEDs, generating a potent total output of 216W, and is ideal for large events and applications that require extremely bright colour washes.
All three models are pre-programmed with 63 colour macros and can be used in any of five operational modes: Static Color, RGBAW+UV Dimmer, Program, Sound Active and DMX Controlled. For DMX control they offer a choice of six different channel modes (6, 6+, 9, 9+, 10 and 12) and are also compatible with the RDM (Remote Device Management) protocol that allows compatible DMX control systems to set a fixture’s DMX address remotely.
“The original 5P HEX, 12P HEX and 18P HEX have been really successful for ADJ,” comments ADJ USA’s national sales manager, Alfred Gonzales, “but we wanted to take the range a step further, which is why we’re pleased to be launching the 7P HEX IP, 12P HEX IP and 18P HEX IP.
“Not only do these durable fixtures offer an IP65 outdoor rating, but they also all share a compact design with nice extruded aluminium cases that are extremely sturdy. This means they are perfect for outdoor use – whether for install or production or even if you want to put them in rental, they are so robust that they will be able to take the banging back and forth – putting in and out of cases – which is inevitable for rental stock.
All three fixtures are available now from ADJ USA and will be available at the end of June from ADJ Europe.
