Color Span from AC Lighting is a configurable low-profile, ultra-bright LED cove lighting and wall wash system with options for IP rating, body length, body color, LED colors, and optics. The unit is available for indoor (IP20) or outdoor (IP67) applications; at 400mm/16", 800mm/32", or 1,200mm/48" lengths; and in 10 colors, including stock black, white, or silver. LED colors can also be specified from RGBA, single-color red, green, blue, amber, cool white, warm white, or any combination. Users can also choose from narrow, medium, or wide beam angle optics. Output is 1,500 lumens at 4', and it can wash a 72'-long wall from a single wall outlet. The single LED cell features 16 (400mm length), 32 (800mm), or 48 (1200mm) separate LEDs arranged as sets of four-channel control circuits in a linear batten formation, with a choice of power supplies for up to six or 18 full-length fixtures. Connection to the power supply is via RJ45/EtherCon, with a choice of DMX or standalone control modes. The power supply’s built in variable effects engine provides a range of 99 preprogrammed looks and parameters, including scroll, grouping, speed, and fade. In addition, strobing and other chase effects are possible when connecting multiple units. The fixture has a smooth, linear dimming curve. In optional four-channel RGBA configuration, the unit automatically blends the amber. The Color Blade comes with an angle bracket for wall, ceiling, or floor mounting in a variety of permanent installations.
