Elation Professional introduces the new IP65-rated Paladin™, a hybrid LED luminaire that functions as a blinder, strobe, and 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. Twenty-four 40W RGBW LEDs produce 990 watts of output for intense and colorful effects and RGBW color mixing gives a full spectrum of color options, including 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 pixel mapped and eye candy looks. The Paladin includes smooth 16-bit dimming with variable dimming curve modes available for faster programming. For added programming convenience, 64 color presets and 15 unique color macros are included.

The fixture’s hybrid design and feature flexibility make it extremely useful for a wide variety of applications. LED refresh rate frequency and Gamma brightness are adjustable, making it ideal for broadcast applications as well.

Paladin’s rugged die-cast aluminum housing and IP65 design mean that the fixture can be used in even the harshest environments, and optional barndoors, 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 5-pin DMX In/Out and powerCON TRUE1 In/Out connections and includes a four-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 and frequencies.

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.
