ADJ Introduces Element ST Hex - Compact Wireless LED Uplighter

ADJ Element ST HEX

ADJ has announced the availability of its most compact wireless LED uplighter to date, the new Element ST HEX. Building on the success of ADJ’s popular Element Hex, the new model features powerful output, an extremely compact design as well as a full color touch screen display for extremely easy setup and DMX addressing.

Featuring four 6-Watt HEX (Red, Green, Blue, Amber, White + UV) LEDs the fixture offers smooth color mixing with an almost limitless palette. The inclusion of both amber and (cool) white LED elements means that it can be used to create white light with a wide variety of color temperatures. Meanwhile, the UV LED element not only allows for the creation of the classic ‘blacklight’ effect where white and fluorescent materials glow vividly, but it can also be combined with the other primary colors to create hues such as hot pink, electric purple and lime green that aren’t possible using tri/quad color uplighters.

Although the fixture allows for full color mixing, through altering the intensity of all six of the primary LED color elements, it also comes pre-programmed with 63 built-in color macros. These allow for easy static color washing to be setup without the need for any external control and also help to speed up DMX programming. In addition, the unit offers variable speed strobing (0.1Hz to 11Hz) and pulse effects, as well as 0-100% master dimming with a choice of five different dimming curves.

Element ST HEX Bridge Pak

The internal fixed lithium battery with a capacity of 6.6AH (Amp Hours) sufficiently drives the LEDs for up to 15 hours using a single LED color on full brightness, which can be increased to as much as 25 hours using the lower intensity ‘power saver’ modes.

The unit also features an in-built ADJ WiFLY EXR (extended range) receiver that can be controlled via DMX wirelessly using a compatible control system. In addition, it also has an infrared sensor for use with ADJ’s UC-IR remote, which is supplied with the fixture. This allows for simple control over basic features such as blackout and color macro selection.

“The original Element HEX remains an extremely popular product,” explains ADJ USA’s National Sales Manager, Alfred Gonzales. “It’s combination of 6-in-1 hex LEDs, long life rechargeable battery, in-built wireless WiFLY DMX and robust, yet intuitively-designed, body makes it a popular choice for a wide variety of rental, production, décor and entertainment companies. However, with the continued advancements in LED and lithium battery technology, we are pleased to now be able to offer the Element ST HEX as an even more compact option. Ideal for anyone looking for an extremely unobtrusive wireless wash fixture – as well as anyone with limited transport or storage space – the fixture also has the added advantage of a color touch screen that makes mode selection and DMX addressing easier than ever before.”

As well as offering the Element ST HEX as an individual fixture, ADJ has also put together a package that combines four of the uplighters with an ADJ Airstream DMX Bridge. This bundle is known as the Element ST HEX Bridge Pak and provides an all-in-one uplighting solution that can be controlled from a tablet using ADJ’s Airstream DMX APP.
