Elation Professional is pleased to offer the new IP65-rated Paladin™, a highly
versatile hybrid LED luminaire that functions as a brilliantly bright blinder, powerful
strobe and high-output wash light. Adding to its flexibility, this multi-functional light
also houses a motorized zoom for full beam control and its IP65 rating means it can
be used on all types of events without the need for weather protection.
Paladin is a new breed of hybrid. More than a powerful full-colour strobe, Paladin
also functions as a high-power wash light, blinder or eye candy effect in one
brilliantly bright luminaire. Twenty-four 40W RGBW LEDs produce a blistering 990
watts of power for intense and colourful effects and RGBW colour mixing gives a full
spectrum of colour options, including high-impact white light. A motorized zoom
expands the beam from 9° to 25° with output at its narrowest angle measured at
43,240 lux @ 9.8' (3m).
For added visual dynamism, multiple pixel zone control can be incorporated for
spectacular pixel mapped and eye candy looks. The Paladin includes extremely
smooth 16-bit dimming with variable dimming curve modes available for faster
programming. For added programming convenience, 64 colour pre-sets and 15
unique colour macros are included.
The fixture’s hybrid design and feature flexibility make it extremely useful for a
wide variety of applications from concerts and events to clubs, theatres and more.
LED refresh rate frequency and Gamma brightness are adjustable, making it ideal
for broadcast applications as well. In fact, over 350 Paladin fixtures recently
featured on the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest, seen by a television audience of over
Paladin’s rugged die-cast aluminium housing and IP65 design mean that the fixture
can be used in even the harshest environments, and optional barn doors, egg crate
and dual quick-lock omega bracket rigging accessories add to its possibilities.
Control of Paladin is possible via multiple DMX channel modes and the fixture is
RDM equipped (Remote Device Management) for easier configuration and
monitoring of DMX based systems. Paladin comes with IP-rated 5pin DMX In/Out
and powerCON TRUE1 In/Out connections and includes a 4-button touch control
panel and LCD menu display for easy hands-on addressing with easy-to-read fixture
menus and messages. The fixture operates flicker free for use in TV and other
broadcast applications and an auto-sensing power supply covers worldwide voltages
Paladin offers all the savings in cost, energy and space that a hybrid solution brings
including all the benefits of LED like greater reliability, less maintenance and less
power consumed for a lower cost of ownership and greater ROI.
