ADJ Encore Z7LP lime-infused LED par with a motorised zoom is now available

The compact and versatile professional LED par fixture offers a host of useful features, including motorised zoom, a wide palette of vibrant colours and tuneable white light colour temperature control.

Rounding out the Encore Lime Par Series of wash fixtures, which utilise high CRI lime-infused four-in-one colour mixing LEDs, ADJ is pleased to introduce the Encore Z7LP. 

The Encore Z7LP’s light source comprises seven high output four-in-one colour mixing LEDs that include individually controllable red, green, blue and lime elements. Each LED is rated at 20W, allowing the fixture to deliver a soft-edged wash with 2,500 lumens of total output. Inclusion of the Lime LED element boosts CRI and perceived brightness as well as filling in gaps in the colour spectrum. The unit’s overall CRI is 84, while its CRI R9 measures at 76.6, indicating that the fixture will render colours more accurately when used to illuminate scenery, décor, or performers, which is particularly important to ensure natural skin tones and enhanced depth.

A wide variety of colour options are offered by the fixture, achieved through mixing the four primary colours at varying levels of intensity. These include white light with a variable colour temperature of 2700K to 7000K, which can be easily selected using either linear control or one of five preset macros (2700K, 3200K, 4000K, 5600K and 6500K). 16-Bit fine control over the four primary LED elements allows for a huge variety of colour possibilities, while 64 built-in macros facilitate easy selection of popular options.

The motorised zoom function allows its beam angle to be adjusted remotely via DMX between a concise 5-degrees and a wide 50-degrees. This means that the fixture can be easily utilised both to create a tight pool of light or broad wash, even switching between the two for different scenes of the same production. Linear zoom control allows the beam angle to be set anywhere within its range, while 5 preset macros (5°, 6°, 10°, 30°, 40° and 50°) allow quick and easy selection of popular setting.

DMX addressing, as well as mode selection and configuration of the unit’s operating parameters, is facilitated via a 16-character backlit display with four corresponding push buttons located on the rear panel. This provides a menu-driven interface which is simple to navigate, making the fixture easy to setup for different applications and user preferences. A choice of six DMX channel modes (6, 9, 10, 12, 15 and 18) are offered, depending on the level of control required. In addition to the menu interface, the DMX address and channel mode can also be set remotely via the RDM protocol using a compatible control system.

Five-pin DMX input and output sockets are located on the rear of the fixture, while it is also equipped with ADJ’s WiFLY EXR extended range wireless DMX technology, allowing it to receive a DMX signal without a cable from a compatible WiFLY transmitter or another WiFLY-equipped fixture over a distance of up to 2,500ft line of sight.

For use without DMX, full colour mixing and zoom control, as well as selection of all the unit’s macros, can be accessed directly from the menu interface to setup standalone looks. The fixture is also supplied preprogrammed with seven automated programs, which can be selected from the menu with custom chase speed and fade time. In both of these modes, multiple units can be linked together using DMX cable in a primary/secondary configuration where colour or mode selections chosen on the primary fixture will be replicated on one or more secondary fixtures.

The Encore Z7LP offers six selectable dimming modes (Standard, Stage, TV, Architectural, Theatre and Stage 2), four selectable dimming curves (Linear, Square, Inverse Square, and S-Curve), 14 LED refresh rate options (ranging from 900Hz to 25KHz), variable dimming speed (from 0.1 – 10 seconds) and three fan speed options (auto, high, or silent). All these settings can be configured either from the menu display or remotely via DMX, with the exception of fan speed which must be set using the menu interface.

With a robust, all metal casing, the Encore Z7LP is designed for use in professional entertainment lighting environments. It is ideal for rental houses, production companies and event professionals, as well as for installation in all kinds of performance spaces and entertainment venues, including theatres, concert halls and churches. A variable angle scissor yoke, which can be used either as a floor stand or hanging bracket, is supplied with the fixture and a set of metal barn doors for directing the light output are available as an optional accessory.

Despite its sturdy construction, the Encore Z7LP’s compact dimensions of 220mm by 160mm by 242mm ensure that it is an easily transportable fixture, with a weight of just 3.45kgs. Power is supplied to the device via a standard locking connector, while a corresponding output socket allows the supply for multiple units to be daisy-chained from a single power outlet.

“With punchy output, a high CRI, lots of colour mixing potential and motorised zoom, the Encore Z7LP is sure to prove popular both for the production/rental market and for integration projects,” commented ADJ USA National Sales Manager, Alfred Gonzales. “Its potent four-in-one red, green, blue and lime colour mixing LEDs offer a huge gamut of colour options, while convenient linear colour mixing and macro presets for both the full colour spectrum and white light colour temperatures make programming the fixture simple and intuitive. Adding to this motorised focus, offering a beam angle variable between a tight 5° and an expansive 50° that allows for the creation of narrow beams, wide washes as well as automated zooming effects, makes for a truly versatile fixture.”
