American DJ 46HP LED Pro

PLSN Staff • News • December 12, 2008

American DJ’s 46HP LED Pro plays different roles, serving as a stage light or for decorative effects in nightclubs and entertainment halls. It’s a DMX-compatible LED PAR can, with features including RGB color mixing, electronic dimming and color strobing. It uses 18 1-watt LEDs — six red, six green and six blue. Using a DMX controller, a wide array of colors can be created, and built-in color macros help with color choices from Broadway pink to Gallo gold.  A 0 percent to 100 percent electronic dimming feature lets operators fade and adjust the intensity of colors, while a speed adjustment feature gives them control over fast-to-slow color changes.  The fixture will also strobe in any color.
The 46HP LED Pro can be used to add color to theaters and stage shows, to spotlight performers, or for uplighting or truss warming. It can have an energizing effect in nightclubs when used with a mirror ball, or when it chases the beat of the music using built-in programs in Sound Active Mode.

The fixture has four operating modes, starting with DMX mode, which has six different sub-modes — 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, or 7-channel — for custom light show programs.  It can also be operated in three modes that don’t require an external controller: Auto mode (running through six built-in programs); Macro mode (with a choice of 32 color macros); and Sound Active mode (chasing to the music). Multiple units can also be linked together in a Master-Slave configuration.
Along with their versatility, the fixtures generate less heat and consume less energy than comparably bright fixtures thanks to their use of LEDs, which are rated at 100,000 hours.

“LED-powered par cans are commanding a bigger share of the market, because of advantages such as RGB color mixing, energy savings and cool operation,” said Scott Davies, general manager of the American DJ Group of Companies. “We developed the 46HP LED Pro for stage and club lighting directors who want a high-output LED par can that also offers a lot of professional ‘extra’ features they can use to produce very creative and customized effects.”
The 46HP LED Pro is available in black or silver casings, includes a three-button LED display on the real panel and a dual-bracket system. It measures 11.25 inches by 8.25 inches by 7.75 inches, and weighs four pounds. The MSRP is $359.95.
