Morpheus Lightswill debut the OXO FunStrip™LED, an interesting and innovative new strip luminaire manufactured by OXO Show Solutions of France, to the US Market at USITT 2013.
“We’re delighted to introduce the FunStrip™LED, just in time for USITT.” remarks Keith Bennett, Morpheus Lights’ National Sales Consultant. “An LED version of the venerable MR16 striplight, the FunStrip™LED is equipped with 10 individually-controllable, 9‑watt, 3000°K LED sources mounted in MR16-style reflectors. The result is startling. Visually, the color temperature is identical to the MR16 halogen source. The MR16 reflector provides a similar illumination field. At only 90 watts at full intensity, it consumes a fraction of the 750 watts drawn by an MR16 series-circuited 10 x EYC source.
“The very low heat dissipation afforded by the LED sources will allow designers to apply the fixture in décor, set design, stage, or retail spaces with significantly reduced danger of heat damage. Weighing in at only 12 pounds, the fixture lends itself to a wide variety of installation applications. Standard filters or diffusion can be utilized with media burnthough or discoloration greatly reduced.
“With independent control of each LED source via DMX or RDM, the fixture can be used as a matrix or to create single-cell chase effects which, of course, isn’t possible with series-wired MR16s. The LED sources are rated at 50,000 hours and will reduce labor and replacement lamp costs as well as energy consumption. The fixture is equipped with two user-selectable dimmer modes – linear or tungsten emulation – to offer versatile 0-100% dimming to matching existing halogen source dimming curves. Finally, it will be offered at an attractive and affordable price point. Please visit us at Booth 530!”
