Chauvet Introduces STRIKE P38

The new Chauvet Professional STRIKE P38 is an IP65-rated single pod LED fixture that offers intense output as other products of the STRIKE range.

“The response to the STRIKE 4 and STRIKE 1 has always been very enthusiastic,” said Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet. “LDs have come to value them as audience lights, washes and blinders because of their intense warm white output. The STRIKE P38 offers the same benefits, but it can be used in more applications and arranged in a greater variety of patterns because of its more compact size.”

Its smaller dimensions notwithstanding, the Chauvet Professional STRIKE P38 packs a powerful punch, thanks to its 90W warm white light source. The intensely bright fixture weighs in at a mere 3.8 kg (8.4 lbs) and measures 303 x 261 x 184 mm (11.93 x 10.27 x 7.25 inches). Aside from enhancing the fixture’s versatility, its more compact size will also make it easier to rig.

With its warm white output and IP65 rating, the STRIKE P38 can be used to create a welcoming immersive atmosphere at outdoor festivals as well as at arena concerts.  The fixture’s emulated “amber shift” warms the colour temperature of the light as it dims to perfectly mimic incandescent lights.

The fixture’s 16-bit dimming control results in smooth seamless fades, and its adjustable Pulse Width Modulation makes the unit camera friendly for videoed performances. Featuring a Strobe Rate of 0 to 29 Hz and four Dim Modes, the STRIKE P38 is well suited for use in creating special effects on the fly.

Although it excels as a blinder, the STRIKE P38 stays cool enough to use as a wash. The fixture’s IP-rated direct power and DMX connections eliminate whips. This versatile fixture can be controlled via DMX or RDM protocols.
