Litepanels Sola 6 Fresnel Now Shipping
June 6, 2011
Litepanels, a Vitec Group brand, is now shipping their award-winning Sola 6 LED Fresnel light. The daylight-balanced Sola 6 provides the controllability and light-shaping properties inherent in a Fresnel light, but utilizes just a fraction of the power of conventional fixtures.
Like all Litepanels fixtures, Sola 6 Fresnels feature instant dimming from 100% to 0 with no noticeable color shift. The Sola 6 offers beam control from 70° to 10°. Output is flicker free, and remains consistent even if voltage changes.
Employing Litepanels’ ultra-efficient LEDs, the Sola 6 draws about 1/6 the amount of power to provide the same illumination of a conventional 650W tungsten light, but in daylight output. They draw 90% less power than conventional tungsten lights, with very little heat generation. Additionally, these cool-to-the-touch lights substantially cut down on air conditioning requirements in studio applications. With energy savings like that, Sola 6 fixtures can help significantly reduce broadcasters’ carbon footprint
The Sola 6 offers familiar control via on fixture knobs to access mechanical focus and electronic dimming. They are also remote-controllable via integrated DMX interface and do not require an external ballasts.
Featuring a 6” Fresnel lens, the Litepanels Sola 6 draws 75 Watts yet produces output equivalent to a 650W tungsten unit, and weighs 9.10 lbs. (4.13kg). Optional accessories include: 8-leaf barndoors, 5-piece gel filter set, and more.
