CHAUVET DJ’s new COLORband Hex 9 IRC wash light is capable of producing brilliant jeweltones, delicate pastels, multi whites and even glowing ultra violet thanks to its cutting-edge 6-in-1 RGBAW+UV LED technology. But color washing is just the beginning of what this versatile 3.5- foot (1.07 M) linear strip light can do.
Armed with 9 high-output 7-watt LEDs, which emit 2,476 lux at 2 meters, the COLORband Hex 9 IRC is also powerful enough to serve as an audience blinder at concerts and stage shows. Plus, with 3 independent zones of control, it can create eye-popping chase effects which gives the COLORband Hex 9 IRC the versatility to function as “three lights in one.”
This triple-duty capability, along with its 6-in-1 (red, green, blue, amber, white, ultra violet) LEDs, make the COLORband Hex 9 IRC a perfect tool for DJs, mobile entertainers, bands and event companies.
Many of the COLORband Hex 9 IRC’s features can be accessed with an optional CHAUVET DJ IRC-6 infrared remote controller (sold separately), which works wirelessly from distances up to 15 feet (4.6 M). The IRC-6 gives users simple point-and-shoot command of the fixture’s static colors as well as its automated and sound-active programs.
For more customized designs and effects, the COLORband Hex 9 IRC can be controlled via DMX. Here too, the fixture is extremely versatile with multiple DMX profiles available (6-, 9-, 11-, 18- or 23-channel) to accommodate simple and complex programming needs.
The COLORband Hex 9 IRC can also be linked in multiples using CHAUVET DJ’s CBB-6 rigging bracket (sold separately), which is designed specifically for the company’s linear fixtures. Each CBB-6 bracket can hold up to 6 units and allows users to maintain a uniform pixel pitch for a coordinated lightshow across multiple fixtures. Featuring multi-voltage operation (100-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz), the COLORband Hex 9 IRC can be power linked up to 7 units @ 120V and 13 units @ 230V.
With no moving parts and a 50,000-hour LED life, the COLORband Hex 9 IRC is virtually maintenance-free. Its silent operation makes it ideal for noise-sensitive environments. The unit has a 21° beam angle and includes a variable strobe effect (0 to 20 Hz). Weighing just 10.8 pounds (5 kg), it measures 41.3 x 3.2 x.6.9 inches (1,049 x 82 x 176 mm), enabling it to fit into CHAUVET DJ’s CHS-60 VIP Gear Bag for safe, convenient transport and storage.
