The great outdoors have gotten even greater, or at least brighter and more colorful, thanks to the new Elation ELAR 108 par. Housed in a rugged die cast aluminum case, the IP 65 rated RGBW LED was designed to meet the rigorous demands of outdoor applications, with a maximum operating ambient temperature parameter of 113° F, yet still with an LED life rating of 100,000 hours.
Featuring smooth linear RGBW color mixing and built-in color macros, the ELAR 108 offers infinite color possibilities to dramatize building exteriors, landscaping and other outdoor objects. The unit’s light source comes from 36 x 3-watt single SEOUL semi conductor LEDs – 12 red, 9 blue, 9 green and 6 white. Its smooth color mixing, flicker free operation and consistency of color from unit to unit, make it ideal for concerts, theatrical productions and video applications as well as architectural.
