ELATION PROFESSIONAL — PROTRON COLOR AND PROTRON STAR
Elation Professional introduces two DMX strobe effects, the Protron Color and Protron Star, which project a powerful 1500W output from a 750W lamp. The Protron Color and Protron Star multiply wattage using a breakthrough feature called “Flash Burst.” This feature enables flashing at a super high speed, about three times faster than conventional strobes (up to 15 flashes per second), which creates a blinder effect that intensifies output to 1500W. The Protron Color and Protron Star will not overheat, because they utilize advanced Thermal Sensing Technology. Both are DMX compatible, allowing operation from a standard DMX-512 controller. The high-speed Flash Burst feature becomes operational in DMX Mode. Both fixtures also include a Stand Alone mode with selectable flash intensity and speed. The Protron Color is a color strobe effect that includes a scroller with three colors — red, blue, and yellow. Split colors can also be created, and color gels can be substituted (sold separately). The Protron Color includes five DMX channels for Flash Speed, Flash Dimmer, Power Burst function, Color, and Motor Speed. In Stand Alone mode, the Protron Color features Selectable Color or Color Scroll in addition to Selectable Intensity and Selectable Speed. The Protron Star flashes in white only. It comes with three DMX channels for Flash Speed, Flash Dimmer, and Power Burst function. In the Stand Alone mode, the Protron Star provides Selectable Intensity and Selectable Speed. Both the Protron Color and Protron Star offer a flash range of 1-15 flashes per second and 0-100% dimming. Each unit comes equipped with a 750WZB-300 lamp.
