Elation Professional has introduced the KL Fresnel series, a new line of warm-white LED Fresnel lights that provides “the attractive warmth of tungsten halogen with all the benefits of LED”. Available in 50W, 150W and 350W models, a 3000K fixed colour temperature and high colour rendering capacity “ideally mimic the warm glow output of traditional Tungsten halogen lights while surpassing them in output and efficiency”.
The KL Fresnel series (KL for Key Light) has been designed to produce the warmer, natural key light that designers desire while providing high CRI’s to make colours radiate, accurately reflecting an object’s true colour. They are designed for the wide variety of white light illumination needs required in broadcast, theatrical or stage environments from highlighting performers or scenery on stage to illuminating speakers.
The KL Fresnel 4 and 6 models house a manual zoom while the KL Fresnel 8 features a motorized zoom system. All models include removable barn doors and a filter frame.
The KL Fresnel 4 uses a 50W warm-white LED engine calibrated at 3,000 Kelvin to emit a smooth wash of light that simulates the warmth of a Tungsten halogen source. With a high CRI of 91 and superior light quality, the KL Fresnel 4 has the ability to better distinguish colour and contrast. Total lumens output exceeds 1,600, on par with compatible Tungsten halogen models. For easy adjustment of beam size for more precise coverage, the fixture incorporates a 14° to 31° manual zoom. Consistent lux levels are maintained throughout the zoom range.
The KL Fresnel 6 uses a 150W warm-white LED engine calibrated at 3,000 Kelvin. For easy adjustment of beam size for more precise coverage, the fixture incorporates a manual zoom that expands the beam evenly from 16° to 31°. Consistent lux levels are maintained throughout the zoom range. The KL Fresnel 8 uses a 350W warm-white LED engine calibrated at 3,000 Kelvin.
All KL Fresnel fixtures dim smoothly all the way to zero with smooth 16-bit selectable dimming curve modes included for programming ease. Gamma correction and LED refresh rate can be adjusted variably for flicker free operation for broadcast and film environments. Professional control options include DMX and RDM (Remote Device Management), and all fixtures can be controlled manually.
All KL fixtures are outfitted with 5pin XLR and powerCON TRUE1 in/out connections while a 4-button / 2-rotary dial control panel and LCD menu display make for easy navigation. All units come with multiple-unit power linking to save on setup time and hassle, and are outfitted with a multi-voltage universal auto switching power supply.
