Signify Entertainment Lighting (formerly Philips Entertainment Lighting) has launched an LED-based alternative to stage spotlights. According to the company, the new Philips Strand SPX LED WW profile can replace Conventional stage spotlights. The company says the new Philips Strand SPX LED WW, a high-output, warm white LED profile spotlight fixture, offers a powerful, energy-efficient alternative to existing models. Signify officially unveiled the SPX LED WW at the LDI exhibition in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The company produced the SPX LED WW primarily for applications such as education, houses of worship, and themed environments. Also, the company says it designed the spotlight to meet the needs of consultants and specifiers that want high quality, efficient, and reliable fixtures to serve as direct replacements for conventional profile fixtures.
Dimmable either via DMX or a conventional forward phase dimmer, it reportedly delivers a smooth, stepless fade down to zero output. The DMX connection comes from XLR connectors.
Philips Strand SPX LED WW Equivalent to 575 W Spotlight
The energy efficient SPX LED WW uses Signify’s latest warm white LED light engine to generate an output equivalent to that of a 575W fixture. The luminaire with a crisp and precise beam, directs light only where it is intended. Thanks to the SPX filter frame system, zero light leaks. So, no additional masking is required. The light also reduces fan noise for quieter operation compared to other LED fixtures in its class.
According to the company the device employs the same high-precision, high-performance gate and lens sets as the Philips Selecon SPX Profile fixtures with secure locking shutters. An adapter plate enables the use of other lens sets. Also, the luminaire features a Philips Selecon ‘box’-style gel color holder.
Bill Richards, product manager EMEA for Signify Entertainment Lighting, says, “The SPX LED WW will appeal where quality LED alternatives to traditional light sources are needed. The conventional profile fixtures still in use around the world will ultimately need to be replaced with low energy product, and we believe this is the best mains-dimmable LED fixture available. It is the ideal candidate for direct, one-for-one replacement of existing profile fixtures.”
Signify Entertainment Lighting comprises the Philips Strand, Philips Vari-Lite, and Philips Selecon brands, as well as the Philips Showline range of LED stage luminaires.
