Chroma-Q has recently launched the Color Charge Plus with W-DMX™ OEM installed. Wireless Solution Sweden AB was chosen as an OEM partner for wireless DMX when the original Color Charge was launched in 2010. In the near future, more products with wireless option is in the pipeline from Chroma Q and was on demonstration earlier on LDI 2011.
The new Chroma-Q Color Charge Plus is a higher output version of the original battery powered, wireless DMX fixture. It is suitable for temporary indoor lighting applications where wiring is a challenge or where install speed is critical, transforming a venue in minutes.
The Color Charge Plus utilises the very latest generation of LED and optics, resulting in 50% more output (900 lumens) than the original Color Charge (600 lumens) from the same size unit.
The Color Charge Plus fixture’s environmentally friendly design includes a recyclable long life battery cell and an interchangeable LED head for upgrading in the future. The highly efficient nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) power cell delivers up to 30 hours usage from a single charge and provides up to 1,000 charges; approximately double the life of lead-acid batteries. The fixture also features a built-in mains charger that enables it to continue to be used while charging, and a gas gauge showing the percentage and hours of usage remaining.
The Color Charge Plus features Wireless Solution wireless DMX control and synching between units, allowing connection of up to 512 fixtures on a single network. With a wireless range of 150 metres (500 feet) in a crowded room and 250 metres (820 feet) with a clear line of site, the Color Charge Plus is ideal for large indoor spaces. Also, the unit’s wireless aerial folds away discreetly for convenient transportation.
