Blizzard Lighting releases new half-meter, outdoor rated, high power linear wash fixture

October 4, 2013 by Mobile Beat

Waukesha, WI. – There’s a new option for those in need of outdoor LED wash lighting that comes in the form of a solidly built, half-meter long linear strip light fixture from Blizzard Lighting called the ToughStick 5™.

Designed from the ground up, the ToughStick 5™ features 9x ultra bright 15-watt 5-in-1 RGBAW LEDs which are fitted into a durable, half-meter long, convection cooled, anodized aluminum enclosure with a completely sealed tempered glass top. The nine 5-in-1 RGBAW LED’s supply a generous amount of richly saturated mixed colors with a total of 8,900+ Lux output @ 1-meter, full on.

The weatherproof 4-button LED control panel found on the side of the ToughStick 5™ gives users full control of all the features and settings such as full RGBAW color mixing, 35 built-in programs, strobe and speed controls, plus sound active mode. The fixture can also be controlled via DMX master/slave in either 4/5/9 or 10-channel DMX modes.


Another notable feature of the ToughStick 5™ is ultra smooth flicker-free 32-bit dimming (5 user-selectable dimming curves) which are selectable via either the LED control panel or DMX. Will Komassa, co-owner of Blizzard Lighting recently explained “The advanced 32-bit dimming circuitry found in the ToughStick 5™, like many of our fixtures, allows users to select their own choice between 5 different dimming modes, each allowing different amounts of steps for smoother (and slower) dimming. Depending on which mode you use, the steps will be added to the first 25%, 50% or 75% of the dimming curve. And the results are very noticeable, especially at low levels.”

The ToughStick 5™ comes with all the necessary components including an IP rated AC power cord with cable cap, IP rated DMX in/out cables, and dual mounting brackets with locking knobs for secure positioning and flexibility. Link several units together via 3-pin XLR input & output for an even more colorful light display. Based on its many features, quality design, and affordability, the ToughStick 5™ from Blizzard Lighting would be a great choice for just about any architectural wall wash or performance stage lighting application.

And of course, ToughStick 5™ is also backed by Blizzard’s 2-year warranty.

The retail price for the ToughStick 5™ is $599.99, and is available for immediate shipping.­
