Recently shown at USITT, the new Chroma-Q Color Charge LED fixture is a 600 lumen, battery powered, wireless DMX fixture which is ideal for any indoor temporary lighting application where wiring is a challenge or where install speed is critical, transforming a venue in minutes.
The Color Charge fixture’s environmentally friendly design includes a recyclable long life battery cell and an interchangeable LED head for upgrading in the future. The highly efficient nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) power cell delivers up to 30 hours usage from a single charge and provides up to 1,000 charges; approximately double the life of lead-acid batteries. The fixture also features a built-in mains charger that enables it to continue to be used while charging, and a gas gauge showing the percentage and hours of usage remaining.
The Color Charge features Wireless Solutions wireless DMX control and synching between units, allowing connection of up to 512 fixtures on a single network. With a wireless range of 150m in a crowded room and 250m with a clear line of site, the Color Charge is ideal for large indoor spaces. Also, the unit’s wireless aerial folds away discreetly for convenient transportation.
The plug and play fixture also features synchronized effects between units, slave modes allowing simple opposite a/b color effects and a built in stand-alone playback mode.
Manufactured in North America and part of the new generation of Chroma-Q LED lighting models, the Color Charge utilizes unique color mixing and control management technologies providing a high quality light output.
The Chroma-Q RGBA engine has been developed to deliver an incredible CRI of 92, for true color balance across the spectrum and accurate tungsten white light emulation. The fixture utilizes unique ColorSure technology for enhanced color consistency across cells and fixtures.
The Color Charge is extremely bright for a battery powered fixture, producing 600 lumens output. The unit also features smooth, theatrical grade dimming, making it suitable for a wide range of temporary indoor entertainment and architectural lighting applications.
Featuring a quick focus click mechanism providing stepped beam angles, the remote head can be quickly and easily positioned. For discreet usage, the unit features a black body and optional half hat snoot to hide the lens source from view.
The Color Charge can be floor mounted or hung from truss via M12 nutsert and safely secured in place via a built-in Kensington lock slot. For maximum practicality, the Color Charge can also be mains powered and controlled via wired DMX.
