Proteus Hybrid withstands over 17,000 hours in harsh outdoor elements

In November 2021, Elation Professional placed a Proteus Hybrid IP-rated moving head lighting fixture located on top of the roof of its Los Angeles headquarters. At that time, the fixture had logged almost 17,000 hours of running time while being exposed to the harsh outdoor elements as a test unit for around three years.

Since then, the Proteus Hybrid has remained on the roof for the past 16 months. During the recent record-breaking storms that have hit Southern California, the Elation Professional team checked in on the unit and were not surprised to discover the unit still runs like new. Since 2021, it has had a new lamp and an additional 4,000 hours of operating time. Over 21,000 total run time hours have now been logged.
