Long Throw Double Deck LED Color Changer

PDF Link

Aptly named, the SPECTACOLOUR 270DD RGB is an extremely bright LED-based RGB fixture designed for long throw applications and is powerful enough to illuminate large architectural facades or canvas entire stage areas. The SPECTACOLOUR 270 RGB utilizes the extremes of cutting edge LED technology and its rugged design allows installation in any environment. With an output of over 6,500 lumens and maximum projection distance of 500ft/150m, this powerful fixture is perfectly suited for entertainment, architainment and architectural applications of any scale.

The new generation of powerful exterior lighting and color changing architectural wall washers is topped by the latest SPECTACOLOUR 270DD RGB, a high density LEDs double configuration modules range which features 3w 3 in 1 high power LEDs. The double cluster of LEDs configuration in the SPECTACOLOUR 270DD RGB offers full independent digital control of each LED array, allowing absolute freedom to create matching or divergent effects on formerly prohibitive large scale facades and remote spots.

The standard version with a combination of RGB LEDs (red, green and blue) offers an unprecedented astonishing rich saturated light output quality. Maintenance costs are significantly and dramatically reduced by the IP67 certified protection rating coupled with the very long life span of the latest solid state lighting package, as well as by the total absence of moving parts and color filters and by the convection cooling system for the added bonus of a totally silent operation. A variety of beam angles 10° as standard, 5°, 25° and 40° as optional are part of the optical group selection. We offer narrow beam for long throw, medium beam for medium throw and wide beam for flood/wash applications. A list of the various possibilities of beam angles is available below and we are open for customized beam angles where needed.

The two heads have an independent tilt that allows to lighting up wide big surfaces such as facades using lenses with different beam openings. For instance, it can be used with lenses with medium opening on one head to light up the lower part of a building or structure and at the same time it is possible to use narrow beam lenses to light up the rest of the building or structure. The SPECTACOLOUR 270DD RGB series can truly turn the newly illuminated areas into signature locations for an unparalleled standard defining architectural lighting achievement. The SPECTACOLOUR 270DD RGB is equipped with PWM. PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) driving electronics is currently the only optimal technology appropriate for LED drivers. Other manufacturers increase input electrical current to boost the brightness of LEDs, at the great expense of LED reliability. With transformers, if one LED burns out, the next LEDs in a series would pass out in succession. PWM eliminates those issues. The SPECTACOLOUR 270DD RGB has PWM electronics integrated to safeguard the longevity of LEDs.

The SPECTACOLOUR 270DD RGB is designed for outdoor and indoor applications. Suitable applications include wash and effect lighting for architectural, entertainment, display and retail uses. The SPECTACOLOUR 270DD RGB can be also installed for use in signage and advertising using the dynamic functions available with DMX 512 control. Direct input of DMX 512 signal allows the fixtures to be controlled from any DMX512 controller. The SPECTACOLOUR 270DD RGB can be operated as a single unit or in multiple units for large applications. Whether you are in a band, part of a stage performance or just want to add color washes with RGB infinite color mixing possibilities to any lighting installation, the SPECTACOLOUR 270DD RGB is the perfect solution to brilliantly light up any stage or surface.

The SPECTACOLOUR 270DD RGB is also performer friendly because it emits almost no heat onto the stage thus entertainers will stay cooler on stage. Just add the SPECTACOLOUR 270DD RGB punch and you have got the optimal stage light show! With a very long lamp life, the fixture will need virtually no servicing (only regular outside cleaning of front lenses to make sure light out put is strong) and produces the highest quality of output without color fading.

The SPECTACOLOUR 270DD RGB has an auto switching power supply that can accommodate a wide range of voltages. The only thing necessary to do before powering on the unit is to make sure the line voltage supplied is within the range of the accepted voltages. The SPECTACOLOUR 270DD RGB will accommodate between 80v and 240v AC. All fixtures must be powered directly off a switched circuit and can not be run off a rheostat (variable resistor) or dimmer circuit even if the rheostat or dimmer channel is used solely for 0% to 100% switch.

The SPECTACOLOUR 270DD RGB has been designed to replace 1800W HID CYM color changers. It brings to the table a lot of advantages among them flexibility of beam positioning, more lens options, greater creativity opportunities, higher light efficiency, greater energy saving, lighter weight, much higher IP rating, much lower power consumption, much higher lamp life all those factors resulting in an overall superior fixture that not only outperforms its 1800W HID CYM predecessor but also saves on many fronts. We are talking about 21st century fixture replacing a 20th century fixture.

In projects where there is no need for color change, and only static color is needed, the SPECTACOLOUR 270DD MONOCOLOR can be used to replace existing 1500W HID light source fixtures or where HID might have been considered. The SPECTACOLOUR 270DD MONOCOLOR has an advantage that it’s simple to install, operate and maintain while projecting light that can reach up to 800 ft (244 meters) depending on color.

The LED Optical Beam angle is larger than the film beam angle the only net effect is homogenization of the RGB.

If the lens angle of the LED is smaller, the films will enlarge the angle.

For example, LED lens 6-degree with 20 degree film will yield a 20 degree light distribution pattern.

A 6 degree lens and a 60 x 1 degree film will result in a 60 degree by 6 degree line.
