Lighting the Fuze in any location
Elation’s Fuze Series has been designed to provide a wash of coloured light in any environment. With four versions initially available, the series utilises single-lens RGBW COB LEDs that reportedly offer a wide colour palette and a uniform field of light. The four units in the series are the Fuze PAR Z60 IP, Fuze PAR Z120 IP, Fuze Wash Z120 and Fuze Wash Z350.
Each of the four fixtures is DMX controllable and RDM ready with 3- and 5-pin DMX I/O as well as PowerCon inputs and outputs. All of the models are designed for use in broadcast with ‘flicker free operation’ and global voltages and frequencies are catered for by an auto-sensing power supply. Designed to appear as one coloured lamp as opposed to comprising multiple LED diodes, the fixtures are afforded the ‘ability to wash a surface or subject without the multi-shadows created from traditional LED wash fixture’ and feature wide-angle zoom ranges, full electronic dimming as well as variable dimming curves and high-speed strobing.
The PAR Z60 IP and Z120 IP are both IP65-rated single source PAR luminaires with 60W and 120W quad-colour RGBW COB LEDs respectively. Both include a four-button control panel and LCD menu display, are designed for use in noise sensitive environments by operating ‘silently’, and feature dual adjustable yokes. The PAR Z60 IP possesses a 7-degrees to 39-degrees motorised zoom, while the PAR Z120 IP takes this to 55-degrees.
The Wash Z120 and Z350 fixtures, meanwhile, are both single source PAR moving heads. The Z120 has a 120W quad-colour RGBW COB LED, while the Z350’s is 350W. A 7-degrees to 55-degrees motorised zoom is included in the Z120, while 10-degrees is the starting point for the Z350.
Elation has also unveiled the ZCL Series of ACL-type LED effect lights. Comprising three fixtures, the ZCL 360 Bar, ZCL 360i and ZCL Bar Z300 IP, the units combine a high-power RGBW multi-chip with a 4-degree to 44-degree zoom that uses a zooming collimator lens for a 4-degree colour-changing beam. Each of the three units also feature a strobe effect and full-range electronic dimming.
Multiple DMX channel modes provide control of each of the fixtures, which are RDM protocol ready. Quick installation and customised setups are promised by way of the multiple unit power linking, while they are all ‘flicker free’ and include an auto-sensing power supply.
Creating a moving bar effect with its five individual 60W RGBW LEDs, the ZCL 360 Bar possesses the manufacturer’s collimator optic lens, while the ZCL 360i is a single beam moving effect luminaire that consists of a single 90W RGBW LED and the collimator optic lens. Both are capable of 16-bit continuous 360-degrees pan and tilt rotation and have DMX and power I/O connections.
Meanwhile, the ZCL Bar Z300 IP, which also houses five individual 60W RGBW LEDs and the collimator optic lens, is an IP65-rated bar moving effect luminaire with DMX and power I/O connections. The fixture includes a frost filter and a glare shield to create a softer wash effect.
