Manufactured and distributed by Group One Limited, the elektraLite brand is well known for designing high-performance, robust, professional-grade lighting products that don’t “break the bank,” and the company’s new Paint Can COB fixture is firmly in line with that philosophy.
Available in regular and pendant body styles, as well as Warm White (WW) and RGBW formats for a total of four model variants, the elektraLite Paint Can is a new spot/wash hybrid utilizing a 200-watt Japanese COB LED with a CRI of 95. The fixture also boasts a zoom lens ranging from 10 degrees—the same as a very narrow PAR64—through to a wide 60 degrees, and the Paint Can’s electronic zoom maintains perfect beam shape throughout the entire transition.
This seamlessness also applies to color mixing for the RGBW models during transitions through the full range of zoom; there are no hot spots and zero chromatic aberrations. With exceptionally smooth dimming and no LED pop or bump at the beginning or end of the dimmer curve, the Paint Can RGBW models utilize a choice of colors that were carefully chosen to achieve both pure primary colors and vibrant pastels. Furthermore, the white allows perfect rendering at a balanced 3200k color temperature.
“After we introduced our Stingray Profile RGBW other COB LED-equipped products in that family last year, we had numerous requests from our customers to create a spot/wash hybrid that would offer the same brilliant colors and ultra-clean lighting,” says Norman Wright of Group One Limited’s lighting division. “So we’ve come back with four versions of our new Paint Can fixture, giving lighting professionals a lot of great options.”
The Paint Can has several profile choices for controlling its features, including a simple-to-use onboard control interface that allows for easy control by either DMX or console-free static operation. And sophisticated firmware allows the installer to chose features like EFO (Emergency Full Output) when the DMX output is shut down.
Operational voltage ranges from 100 to 240 volts with a variable refresh rate for the PWM. All Paint Can variants come with both 3- and 5-pin DMX (both in and thru), and power is via the industry standard Powercon input and output with an on/off switch. A single yoke, color frame, barn doors and safety eyebolt are all also included.
