Elation Introduces ELED Strip RGBW Color Wall Wash

January 13, 2009 by Mobile Beat

Elation Professionals new ELED Strip RGBW is designed to shoot an intense wash of color across walls and other large surfaces with a powerful array of sixty 1W LEDs (15 LEDs each in red, green, blue, and white).Designed for wall washing and other long-throw applications, the ELED Strip RGBW measures 40″ long and has a beam angle of 40 x 80 degrees. One of its special features is a new asymmetrical optic system that produces a flat linear beam of light, as opposed to the less-focused circular-like patterns created by many LED strips. Because of the greater focus and concentration of its beam, the unit will produce a noticeably more even-toned and robust color wash when projected on a wall or running length of a surface, the company says.

“To be an effective wall wash, an LED strip should produce a concentrated line of light, but this doesnt happen with some LED strips, which tend to spill light all over the place,” said Eric Loader, director of sales for Elation Professional. “We wanted to avoid this problem with the ELED Strip RGBW, so we developed a special optics design that gives you a really nice flat, concentrated beam of light. This linear beam produces a really efficient wash — its great for throwing color evenly over a large area. It is also great as a floor light for front wash or direct view effect.”

Another feature is the addition of white LEDs to the RGB mix. They make the colors appear more vibrant and balanced, eliminating the pinkish tone that sometimes occurs during RGB color mixing when creating white, and helping to create brighter pastel colors as well, the company says.

Used with a DMX controller, the ELED Strip RGBW can create an infinite palette of additive RGB colors. It offers four-zone control of the LEDs, and it can be run in six DMX modes, giving operators different levels of control of its various functions, including 0-100% electronic dimming.

The ELED Strip RGBW can also be operated without a DMX controller in auto and macro modes. The unit includes an easy-to-navigate LCD display that lets users quickly run through the menu options and adjust DMX settings.

The ELED Strip RGBW is designed for architectural, church, stage, trade show, special event, and display applications. It comes with a built-in multi-voltage power supply with an AC link. An integrated floor stand/mounting bracket is also included with the unit, providing flexible positioning options. The ELED Strip RGBW measures 42″ long x 7.2″ wide x 6.3″ high, and weighs 10.5lbs. ETL approval is pending.
