ADJ Lighting introduces Focus Flex L19 moving head wash

Building on the success of the popular Focus Flex L7, ADJ announced its new Focus Flex L19. Featuring the same lime-infused, high CRI, colour-mixing LEDs as its compact sibling, this larger version packs in almost three times the quantity to allow for intense output and complex pixel-mapped effects.

This professional moving head luminaire offers fast movement as well as an impressive zoom range, allowing it to generate both intense columns of light and wide washes of colour.

The Focus Flex L19 features nineteen high-output 40-Watt RGBL (red, green, blue & lime) colour-mixing LEDs. These are arranged in three concentric circles across the face of the fixture and can be controlled independently to allow for the creation of ‘eye candy’ animation patterns as well as for pixel-mapped playback of low-resolution video content.

The inclusion of the lime LED chip allows for an enhanced colour palette as well as an improved CRI (Colour Rendering Index) of 84.2 (zoomed out, full on). All LEDs used to manufacture the fixture are meticulously calibrated in the factory to ensure perfect consistency between units, even if they come from different batches.

Through mixing the intensity of the four primary LED colours, a huge gamut of output colours can be created to suit any mood or desired look. The fixture is pre-programmed with 64 colour macros to allow easy selection of popular options, while 0-100% dimming control of each primary colour allows for the selection of specific shades and hues.

In addition, a convenient Virtual CMY mode is also available, which allows control alongside native CMY colour mixing fixtures using hardware/software CMY colour picker/palette tools.

The fixture also offers white light output with a variable colour temperature of between 2700K and 10,000K. This can be accessed either via linear control or a collection of 10 convenient presets.

A choice of six different DMX channel modes is offered, ranging from a Basic 22-channel mode, where all the LEDs are controlled in unison, through to an Extended 104-channel mode, which offers individual colour mixing control over each separate LED.

As a compromise between these two extremes, the Extended 40-channel mode groups the LEDs into three independently controllable rings. Alternatively, animated effects can be created in the Standard 31-channel mode using the fixture’s internal Virtual Foreground and Background Colour Wheel feature.

On the rear panel of the fixture are locking power input and output connections, which allow the power supply for multiple units to be connected to a single outlet. The rear of the fixture is also home to 5-pin DMX input and output sockets as well as RJ45 networking input and output connections.

In addition to the standard DMX512 protocol, the fixture can also be controlled using ArtNet, sACN or Klingnet to achieve easy integration with any existing lighting control or pixel-mapping system.

The luminaire can be easily tailored to a designer’s personal preferences, or the specific requirements of a particular application, using a wide variety of customisable options. These include five selectable Dimming Modes (Standard, Stage, TV, Architectural, Theatre & Stage 2), four selectable Dimming Curves (Square, Linear, Inverse Square & S. Curve) and adjustable Dimming Speed (between 0.1 and 10 seconds).

“As its name suggests, the Focus Flex L19 is an extremely flexible fixture,” explained ADJ USA’s Director of Sales, Alfred Gonzales. “Its motorised zoom function allows for smooth alteration between an extremely tight 5-degree beam, which will cut through haze to generate aerial effects and a wide 50-degree wash that will cover a large area of stage or crowd. Add to that extremely punchy output, fast movement and full pixel control over each of its 19 LEDs, packaged into a robust fixture that is still extremely lightweight for its class, and you have a versatile lighting tool that creative designers will love to use.”

Designed to provide lighting designers with both flexibility and creative potential, the ADJ Focus Flex L19 is ideal for the rental and production market, as well for installation in larger entertainment venues, houses of worship, theatres and nightclubs.
