CHAUVET Professional Adds WELL FLEX Battery-Powered
CHAUVET Professional brings greater FLEX-ibility to battery-powered uplighting for special events with the introduction of the WELL FLEX RGBW wash fixture. The newest member of CHAUVET Professional’s “unplugged” WELL Series, the WELL FLEX utilizes an internal lightweight Lithium ion battery that will last through an entire event, while recharging in under 8 hours – no power cords required. This IP44-rated go-anywhere unit also comes with a pre-installed W-DMX wireless DMX receiver so that data cables can be eliminated too, for completely cord-free operation.
The WELL FLEX is not only flexible in terms of the wireless freedom it offers, but also in its versatile design possibilities. Containing four 10-watt Quad-Color LEDs (red, green, blue, white), it is capable of producing vibrant, shadow-free blended colors in a vast palette that ranges from rich jeweltones, to delicate pastels, to variable whites, ensuring it will set just the right tone – or even match the color themes – at any event. The WELL FLEX also offers some brand-new features, unique to the WELL Series, including a manually adjustable tilt range of 270°, as well as a detachable mounting bracket, which allows the unit to be used not only on the floor for uplighting, but also to be hung in a variety of locations, bringing incredible diversity to your lighting designs. Four distinct dimming curves add to the WELL FLEX’s versatility, along with a built-in 12°-18° manually adjustable zoom that lets users adjust its angle to wash a wider surface or a more focused area.
Color blending and other functions can be controlled manually or by wireless or st! CHAUVET Professional Adds WELL FLEX Battery-Powered andard DMX. Here too, the WELL FLEX flaunts its flexibility, offering both simple and complex DMX channel profiles (3-, 4-, 6- or 10-channel) to address a variety of programming needs.
“Colorwashing and uplighting have become an essential part of the visual experience at events of all types today – even those held in places where there aren’t any power outlets,” said Michael Graham, Product Manager for CHAUVET Professional. “This is causing a huge growth in demand for battery-powered wash fixtures that can be set up quickly anywhere.
“But customers aren’t simply looking for the convenience of battery operation, they want the fixture to perform as well as a standard ‘wired’ wash fixture,” added Graham. “The WELL FLEX delivers on this demand: its Quad-Color LEDs produce high-quality blended colors and ultra-smooth color fades; it’s got a full set of professional features; and it’s impressively bright with illuminance of 533 lux at 5 meters. It’s the perfect choice for outdoor events such as fairs and festivals, where power outlets may be scarce, and cords and cables could pose a hazard to attendees. It’s even rated at IP44 for temporary outdoor use.”
Other features on the WELL FLEX include a variable 0-16Hz strobe and built-in automated programs that can be recalled manually or via DMX. The unit comes standard with 5-pin DMX in and out connectors and a Neutrik powerCON power input connector. It features multi-voltage operation: 100-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz.
Featuring rugged housing, the WELL FLEX easy to transport to events, weighing only 12.2 pounds (5.5 kg) and measuring 6 x 12 x 10 inches (152 x 305 x 254 mm). For ultra-convenience, it is available in a 6-pack road case that doubles as a charging base.
