Anywhere you take it, the new compact Design LED 108IP from Elation Professional will light up the environment with a rainbow of changing colors—even if that environment is outdoors and it’s raining.

An LED RGB color-changing luminaire, the DLED 108IP is small in size but big in grit and toughness, built to withstand the rigors of outdoor use, with a robust IP-rating of IP65. Housed in a rugged diecast case, it’s completely protected against dust and precipitation, making it ideal for outdoor concerts, pavilions, amphitheaters, building exteriors, and landscape lighting.

The DLED 108IP isn’t only tough, it’s also bright, which makes it just as well-suited for indoor applications where a powerful color changer is needed. Equipped with 36 (12 each red, green, and blue) 3W Luxeon K2 LEDs, it provides extremely high output and performance, especially for its diminutive size.

Featuring linear RGB color mixing, the DLED 108IP can produce an infinite array of colors, using a DMX controller. It also includes 6 built-in programs with speed control, which can be called up via DMX, as well as a variable speed strobe effect and 0%-100% dimming with 2 dimming options: linear and standard. The unit can be operated in 3 DMX modes: 3-channel (RGB color mixing); 4-channel (RGB mixing plus dimming); and 6-channel (RGB mixing, dimming, strobing, built-in programs). Additionally, the DLED 108IP can be used without a controller in stand-alone manual mode and linked together in multiples Master-Slave.

Although its powerful brightness will be “seen” in any setting, the DLED 108IP will never be “heard,” thanks to its convection cooling system, which eliminates fans, for totally silent operation. It also features flicker-free operation. It measures a mere 8.8”L x 8”W x 10.8”H and weighs just 15.2 lbs., so it’s easy to transport, too. Outfitted with a unique mounting bracket assembly, the DLED 108IP can stand on a flat surface, mounted on a wall, or hung on truss sideways or upside-down.

“The DLED 108IP’s IP65 outdoor rating, combined with its very powerful brightness and small size, make it an extremely versatile color changer that can be used just about anywhere—indoors, outdoors, or on the go,” says Eric Loader, director of sales for Elation Professional. “These same factors also make the DLED 108IP an ideal rental unit. It will provide an excellent return on investment, since it gives rental companies a compact, flexible color changer they can use to meet a variety of different customers’ lighting needs.”

Users will also appreciate the many time and money saving benefits associated with the DLED 108IP’s LED-powered lamps, such as energy efficiency and maintenance-free operation. Despite its bright output, the fixture draws only 150W of power, saving big on energy costs. Its long life Luxeon LEDs are rated at 100,000 hours, minimizing the time and expense of lamp replacement. Additionally, because LEDs generate virtually no heat, the DLED 108IP will help keep any environment, indoors or outdoors, at a cool, comfortable temperature.

The DLED 108IP comes with a special IP65-rated power cable, which like the unit itself, can withstand dust and wet conditions and is required for outdoor use. IP65-rated DMX cables are also required for outdoor applications and are available from Elation (sold separately).

A 25° beam angle comes standard with the unit. For added versatility, optional 15° and 45° lens kits are also available (sold separately).
