ADJ Introduce ‘Mobile-Friendly’ Flat LED Par Can
American DJ have recently launched the latest addition to their range of LED Par Cans. The TR17 has a compact design and is powered by an arrangement of seven extremely bright 3-watt TRI (red, green and blue) LEDs. The Flat Par TRI7’s slim case design makes it ideal for tighter spaces, smaller productions, and entertainers on the go. It’s also the perfect size to insert into truss for coloured uplighting.
“We saw there was a need for a smaller LED par can that was easier to transport and fit into truss and other tight spaces,” said Dirk Kast, General Manager for American DJ Europe. “So we designed an LED par that has a unique ‘flat’ shape, which gives it great versatility and allows it to pack up and travel easily. But despite its smaller, more compact size, the Flat Par TRI7 doesn’t skimp on features; it offers all of the professional capabilities that lighting users have come to expect from American DJ LED par cans.”
Extremely versatile, the Flat Par TRI7 gives users the option of choosing from six different operational modes: Manual Colour Mode, Colour Change Mode, Colour Fade Mode, Auto (Program Run) Mode, Sound Active Mode, and DMX-512 Mode. When used with a DMX controller, operators can further select from seven DMX channel modes: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7 channels. A 4-button LED display on the rear panel makes it easy to scroll through the DMX menu and settings. The Flat Par TRI7 can also be linked in multiples and run Master-Slave via 3-pin XLR cable.
Another of the Flat Par TRI7’s very useful features is its ability to be run wirelessly via American DJ’s LED RC infrared remote controller (sold separately). Using the wireless LED RC unit, operators can be as far as 15 ft. away from the par can while controlling such functions as Blackout, Program Selection, Auto Run through built-in programs, Strobing, Speed, DMX Addressing, DMX Mode selection, Sound Active Mode selection, and adjustment of RGB colours.
Featuring a 40° beam angle, the Flat Par TRI7 includes a gel frame for optional diffusion filters. It comes with a versatile dual-bracket system that allows the fixture to either be hung or set on the ground, while a safety hook on the rear panel prevents accidental slippage. The Flat Par TRI7 also includes IEC AC In/Out outlets on the rear to allow daisy chaining of power.
