Accu Wash 250

Accu Wash 250 is an intelligent moving head color wash effect with a 250W discharge lamp. Equipped with a rotating yoke that can pan a full 360° and tilt 265°, it features seven colors plus white and comes with a 28° PC lens for color washes. Like the other members of the DMX-compatible Accu 250 family, it creates intelligent-looking effects even when operated as a “plug-and-play” fixture without a DMX controller. When operated in plug-and-play mode without a DMX controller, it relies on sound-active internal programming. For larger venues, multiple units can be linked together master-slave via XLR cable. Equipped with seven DMX channels, it can also be operated with a DMX controller. An LED panel allows control of every function, including high-powered head movements, multiple color selections, and strobe rate. A Smart Sense feature automatically detects whether the unit is in DMX or master-slave mode. In addition, the unit can run continuously without shutting down for duty cycles. Other features include a fast shutter, stepper motors with micro-stepping, dimming control from 0 to 100%, and a mounting plate for secure installation.

CEELITE LEC TECHNOLOGY

CeeLite is producing its flat lighting products using new light-emitting capacitor (LEC) technology. This makes it possible to apply lighting indoors or out, on floors or walls, around columns and pillars, or on unconventional surfaces. LEC technology is comprised of three critical components: Sylvania's light-emitting phosphors for color and brightness; CeeLite's proprietary, programmable Flatline Inverters to control levels of brightness and lifetime; and advanced packaging “materials” for lower heat generation. The technology also encompasses proprietary shielded three-wire panels, cUL listed inverters, and packaging options. Products are available on multiple substrates, including film, glass, and plastic injection molding. Flatline Inverters allow the user to alter brightness. Common applications include: signage, trade show exhibits, architecture, point of purchase displays, and photography.

Lamina Ceramics
BL-4000 Series

The BL-4000 Series is a line of high power LED light engines smaller than a nickel. The round footprint of the series of 120-lumen light engines results in a less complex optic design, providing greater compatibility with a wider variety of luminaires. The products are based on an RGB light engine producing up to 16 million blended colors — including white with variable color temperature — and a 5,500°K white-only light engine with a color rendition index (CRI) of 78. All are designed for popular drive currents, feature integrated protection from electrostatic discharge (ESD), and an isolated metal base for wiring on a common heat sink in either series or parallel and compatibility with many popular LED optics.

GELcore
Tetra Contour LED Lighting System

The Tetra Contour LED Lighting System is designed to resemble and replace exposed neon. The system provides the look and output of neon — robustness, low-voltage operation, long life, cold-weather operation, and ease of installation and maintenance. Cool to the touch, the system also provides a bright, uniform appearance and a wide viewing angle. Potential applications include: border lighting, open-face channel letters, reverse-halo signs, accent lighting, art and light sculpture, and cove lighting. The weather-resistant system is comprised of a rigid, optically diffuse extruded-plastic light guide (8' lengths) that can be heated and formed in a shop or on the job site and a flexible LED light engine (8' lengths) that fits snugly inside the light guide. Currently available colors are red and red-orange. Amber, blue, green, and white become available later in 2005.

OptiLED
MOA H-7 Modular LED Optical Array

The MOA H-7 is usable indoors, outdoors, or underwater. It is an LED system comprised of seven individual hexagonal High Intensity Vorticular Array (HIVE) modules interlinked. Each module consists of three high-powered LEDs, one in each primary color (RGB), and interconnects and passes power and data to other units. The system utilizes 21 high-brightness LEDs to create a beam of light that can be shaped to different distributions with any of four optical diffusers. Its weatherproof and submersible housing, a DMX512 interface, and rotation on three axes for precise focusing make it suitable for interior accents, flood lighting, architectural highlights, landscape effects, theatrical and stage productions, and underwater applications.
