American DJ Unveils Eco UV Bar Plus
Black lights have provided mobile DJs with a 'cool' effect for a long time. But lately they’ve become cooler than ever (literally), thanks to the new LED-powered black light from American DJ - the Eco UV Bar Plus.
A 1,000mm bar containing 18 x 1-watt UV LEDs, the Eco UV Bar Plus is a full 30% brighter than ADJ’s original Eco UV Bar due to the latest advancements in LED and lens technology. Yet, despite its greater brightness, the Eco UV Bar Plus uses no more energy than its predecessor, drawing only 26 watts of electricity. Along with being energy efficient, the Eco UV Bar Plus contains long-life LEDs which are rated at 50,000 hours.
“Ultraviolet or ‘black’ lights are typically used as mood effects, which means they need to be, one, dramatic and, two, reliable, since they are often kept on for long periods of time.” said Dirk Kast, General Manager for American DJ Europe. “The Eco UV Bar Plus was designed to meet both of these requirements. Not only do its LED lamps, low heat output and maintenance-free design make it a reliable day-in/day-out performer, but it is 30% brighter than its predecessor, which is a huge difference. There’s nothing shy or timid about the Eco UV Bar Plus – it’s a truly spectacular black light that will add a lot of drama and flair anywhere it’s used.”
Designed for versatility, the Eco UV Bar Plus can be used in a lot of different places and applications. It comes with dual mounting brackets, which allow the unit to either be hung on a wall or ceiling, or set on the floor for wall washing and uplighting. The unit features a 120° beam angle and a 390-410nm wavelength, it measures 1,000 x 60 x 110.5mm and, at just 2.4kg, is extremely lightweight and easy to transport.
