New flexible hybrid luminaire from Elation1 February 2016
The new Platinum FLX from Elation Professional enters into a new class of multi-functional lighting fixtures offering a powerful 3-in-1 hybrid luminaire that has flexible use as a spot, beam, or wash light.
Designed for a wide variety of professional stage and special event applications, the Platinum FLX 470W Philips MSD Platinum 20R lamp can emit up to 20,000 lumens, an output comparable to 1,200W fixtures and powerful enough to cut through bright LED displays and sizable rigs full of lights.
It performs exceptionally well in a variety of lighting applications thanks to its full-feature design including CMY and variable CTO colour mixing, claimed Elation Professional.
Featuring new lamp technology and an innovative optical system, the Platinum FLX does the work of three luminaires in one, said the company. Using the same patent-pending dual optical design as Elation’s Platinum SBX, Beam mode and Spot mode perform under their own independent optical systems resulting in a narrower beam angle and brighter central point in Beam mode and a uniform, clearer and brighter spot field under Spot mode.
The intelligent optical system mechanically switches between Beam and Spot modes quickly and accurately with a very flat field of light in Spot mode. Beam angle range differs in Beam and Spot mode with the Platinum FLX realising gobo projection focus under Beam mode from 1.8° – 18° and 2.9° to 25° in Spot mode.
“The Platinum FLX is an extremely efficient fixture on two fronts,” stated Elation sales director, Eric Loader. “Its hybrid ability translates into savings from being able to use fewer fixtures in the rig, not to mention the space and weight benefits gained, while designers are getting up to 20,000 lumens of power yet drawing only 650W. Very energy efficient compared to traditional 1,200W lights, you can easily put two Platinum FLX fixtures for every one 1,200W type fixture on the same power circuit, plus this unit can run at 120V offering even more versatility.”
