ADJ gains more Focus
The Focus Wash 400 has been added to ADJ’s Focus Series of LED-powered moving head luminaires. The dedicated wash fixture combines a potent colour-mixing LED light engine with a Fresnel lens and motorised zoom mechanism to create a versatile, soft-edged beam with an even field and high CRI.
Providing colour mixing for stage-based applications, a 400W six-in-one LED light source combines red, green, blue, amber, cyan and lime LED chips. With a 50,000-hour average life expectancy, the LED engine configuration allows for a CRI of more than 90, together with white light output across a range of colour temperatures. The light source also offers a high CRI R9 rating of 87.3, making it capable of effectively illuminating problematic saturated red subjects.
Independent colour-mixing control over the LED source’s six primary colours creates a wide spectrum of saturates and pastel shades. To aid quick programming, Virtual Colour Wheel control provides easy access to 60 pre-programmed colour macros in addition to five preset white colour temperature macros. Using the six LED chips to emulate CMY colour mixing, the fixture includes a virtual CMY mode for patching and controlling as a CMY fixture.
Fitted with a 6-inch Fresnel lens, the Wash 400 can produce a soft-edged wash output with an even field and no colour shadows. This is paired with a motorised zoom function with a variable beam angle of 10–41°, featuring 16-bit fine control over the zoom motor for smooth effects. The wide zoom range can be used to wash a large area of a stage and to spotlight performers or small scenic elements.
Electronic dimming is combined with selectable dimming modes, curves and speeds that can be set remotely via DMX. Fitted with pan and tilt motors, the Wash 400 can achieve quick movement in addition to precise static positioning and smooth movements at slow speed with 16-bit fine control. The fixture also features electronic strobing for the creation of regular, random and pulse effects at various speeds.
Located on the rear panel of the unit’s base, locking power input and output connectors can link the power supplies for multiple units. Compatible with the Remote Device Management (RDM) protocol, the fixture offers both 5-pin and 3-pin DMX input and output sockets together with a choice of five DMX channel modes. An intuitive menu interface can be found on the front of the fixture’s base with six push buttons for navigating on a large backlit LCD display screen. A USB socket has been integrated for future firmware updates.
Weighing 10.7kg and externally measuring 278mm x 213.5mm x 497mm (LxWxH), the compact unit is fitted with large rubber feet allowing it to stand directly on a stage or riser. A pair of Omega brackets can be attached to the base using quick-locking, quarter-turn mechanisms.
