With its patented ‘sit-flat’ design, the ADJ Mega Par series has proved hugely popular with lighting designers, rental companies and mobile entertainers over recent years. Now we’re pleased to introduce the latest evolution in the range, the new Mega Hex Par, which combines 6-in-1 hex color LEDs with the unique Mega Par casing design and an included IR remote for maximum color washing flexibility.
Mega Hex Par at a glance:
• Now with 5x 6W HEX (RGBWA+UV) LEDs
• Patented ‘sit-flat’ design with rubber feet
• Includes UC IR wireless remote control
• Uses: Up Lighting, Stage Washing & Truss Warming
The Mega Hex Par is a compact, low profile par designed for up-lighting and stage lighting that will bring color and excitement to any event. It features 5 x 6-Watt HEX (RGBAW+UV) LEDs which offer smooth color mixing and can create a much wider palette of colors than tri and quad models including hot pinks, lime greens and electric blues.
The inclusion of the UV element also means that the fixture can create a classic ‘UV glow’ effect when used alone as well as exciting UV-infused colors when combined with the other LED elements. The Amber and White LED elements also mean that the fixture is capable of generating white light at varying color temperatures, which makes it ideal for stage illumination. 63 built-in color macros aid with color selection and DMX programming, while the fixture also offers color strobing effects and 0-100% electronic dimming.
A flexible two-part scissor yoke means that the unit can easily hang from a truss or stand directly on the floor locked into place at any desired angle. Not only that, but thanks to ADJ’s patented ‘sit-flat’ design, it can be placed directly on the ground or inside a truss without the yoke because the power and DMX input and output sockets are mounted on the sides of the fixture, not on the rear. These sockets are also grouped together, with the inputs on one side and the outputs on the other, to make cabling easier and neater. Thanks to the fixture’s lower power LED light-source it has a maximum power draw of just 30W, which means that up to 30 fixtures can be connected together and powered from a single mains socket.
With a beam angle of 25-degrees, the Mega Hex Par is ideal for architectural wall-washing as well as stage lighting. Its efficient LED light-source produces minimal heat, where traditional stage lighting produces a lot of excess heat, which allows the temperature on stage to be kept cooler for the comfort of performers. Another advantage of LEDs is their long lamp life. The Mega Hex Par’s LEDs have a working life of 50,000 hours, which makes lamp replacement a thing of the past!
Offering five operational modes, the Mega Hex Par is suitable for all kinds of events and productions. Static Color mode allows quick and easy selection of any of the unit’s 63 pre-programmed color macros, while RGBAW+UV Dimmer Mode allows any combination of the six LED elements to be mixed directly from the LED display on the rear of the fixture.
To allow dynamic lighting effects to be created, the unit also features a variety of in-built chase patterns. Auto Run Mode allows a choice of 16 Color Fade patterns, 16 Color Change patterns and a combined pattern to be selected to run at a set speed. Alternatively, Sound Active Mode allows 16 different chase patterns to be set to run triggered by the beat of the music detected by an internal microphone. Multiple fixtures can also be linked together using XLR cables for synchronized color chases in a Master/Slave configuration.
For remote control, the Mega Hex Par is supplied with an ADJ UC IR wireless remote. This can be used to control Black Out, Full On, Strobe, Dimming, Sound Active and Color Change functions. The fixture is also supplied with an ADJ Airstream IR transmitter that can be used to control the same functions using the ADJ Airstream IR App running on an iPhone or iPad. Finally, for full remote control of all of its features, the unit can also be operated using the DMX-512 protocol with a choice of five channel options (6, 7, 8, 11 or 12).
Thanks to its low profile design and lightweight – yet robust – housing, the Mega Hex Par is extremely easy to store, transport and setup. Weighing in at just 4 lbs. / 1.87 kg and with dimensions of 10.25” x 10.25” x 4.25” / 261 x 260 x 110mm (LxWxH) it is a compact fixture that is also extremely potent.
As well as being available as a single fixture, the Mega Hex Par is also available as part of a four unit package, the Mega Flat Hex Pak. This combines the four fixtures with four 3ft. / 1M power cables, three 6 ft. / 2M DMX cables, a UC IR wireless remote and a padded carry case.
The Mega Hex Par is available now from ADJ USA, and available in November 2017 from ADJ Europe.
