Introducing the latest addition to the ADJ range of LED-powered par fixtures: the 18P Hex. Offering 6-in-1 LEDs and an extremely tough case, this is our most powerful LED Par to-date. If you’re looking for an extremely powerful wash light, capable of projecting richly-saturated colors over a substantial distance, look no further than this feature-packed fixture.
Boasting an array of 18 potent 12-Watt LEDs, the 18P Hex is an immensely powerful par can. It also allows for the creation of a wide variety of colors and hues thanks to its 6-in-1 light-sources, which each integrate a red, green, blue, amber, white, and UV element. This means that these fixtures can not only be used to generate a variety of vibrant colors, but also stark white and warm white light, as well as UV-infused effects.
With a beam angle of 25-degrees, the fixture is equally suited to stage lighting, dancefloor washing, and up lighting, in venues ranging from nightclubs to theatres and churches to concert halls. It’s flexible design also makes it ideal for temporary installations, meaning that it is ideal for use by mobile entertainers and event production companies. It is also provided with a gel frame, which can be used to position a diffuser in front of the LEDs to soften the beam if you ever find yourself requiring a broader wash.
A professional-caliber fixture, the 18P Hex is housed in a tough metal case that has been designed to protect the LEDs and internal electronics from knocks and bumps sustained during transit. It also features locking powerCON sockets to prevent loose connections and accidental power disconnection. The inclusion of both input and output sockets for mains power also means that multiple units can be connected to the same power supply, reducing the number of cable needed, especially when lighting is required all around a room. Up to 4 fixtures can be connected from a single supply at 110V, while this number increases to 8 at 240V.
Setting up an up-lighting system is further simplified by the 18P Hex thanks to its intelligently positioned power and DMX connectors. This patent-pending ADJ technology involves the input sockets (for both power and DMX) located on one side of the case and the output sockets on the other. This means that the unit can sit on the rubber feet mounted to its back panel, pointing directly upwards, with the two sets of cables running neatly out from each side to neighboring fixtures.
The unit is also fitted with a versatile dual bracket, which locks firmly into place via a pair of large plastic thumb screws. Split into two, this can be used to stand the fixture directly on a floor, stage, or riser, pointing up or out at any angle. It can then also be used to hang the unit from a truss or lighting stand by sliding the two pieces together to create one single bracket.
As with all of ADJ’s range of LED pars, the 18P Hex offers a wide variety of operating modes. These can easily be selected using the four-digit LED screen, and corresponding push buttons, located on the rear panel of the fixture. For simple static-colored lighting, the rear panel can be used to easily select any of the unit’s 63 built-in color macros.
For remote control, the fixture is compatible with ADJ’s Dotz Par RF wireless hand controller (sold separately) as well as any standard DMX control system (connected via XLR). Four different channel modes can be selected for DMX control (6, 7, 8, and 12), which gives you the flexibility to make a decision based on the level of flexibility you require and the number of control channels you have available.
Measuring 11.96” x 6.88” x 13” / 304 x 174.8 x 330.4mm (LxWxH), the 18P Hex is nicely compact, making it convenient to carry, store, and transport. It is also lightweight – at 12.9 lbs / 5.9 kg – especially considering its substantial output power and solid build quality.
Due to arrive in May 2017, the 18P Hex offers a winning combination of immense power, robust construction, and an extremely wide color palette. So, whether you’re a mobile entertainer, run a production company, or install equipment permanently in venues, this flexible powerhouse of an LED par can will give you enough lighting power and color mixing potential to achieve the pure lighting excitement that you desire.
