Building on the success of the Saber Spot Series of LED-powered pinspot fixtures, ADJ is pleased to introduce the new Saber Bar 6. This integrated lighting system features six Saber Spot style pinspot heads mounted on a 1-meter base with a single set of data and power connections. It is ideal for table spotting and other event décor applications, both temporary and permanently-installed, as well as for use on performance stages and retail displays.
Each of the unit’s six pinspot heads makes use of a 15W warm white LED light source focused through an ACL lens to generate a potent and razor-sharp beam of light. Each spot is independently dimmable and can also be moved on its X and Y axis to point in any desired direction. This allows for precise angling of the beams, which can then be locked into place using robust plastic thumb-tightening screws. The unit’s LED light sources, which each boast a 50,000 hour operating life, have a color temperature of 3100K and a CRI of 96.
With a very tight 5-degree beam angle, the Saber Bar 6 can be used to create mid-air beam effects as well as to spotlight small areas of a stage or display. However, the fixture is also supplied as standard with two sets of lenses kits, each featuring six separate lenses, one to extend the beam angle to 10-degrees and another to widen it to 45-degrees. These lenses can be easily applied to each spot independently, as required, giving lighting designers the flexibility to alter the beam angle of the spots to suit different applications.
The fixture itself has a tough metal construction with a durable matt black powder-coated finish. It is supplied with two heavy duty adjustable brackets, which can be moved along the bar and locked into place as required. These brackets can be used to form a floor stand or attached to the supplied Omega brackets for overhead rigging or truss mounting. With a manageable weight of 25 lbs. (11.3 kg.) and compact dimensions of 39.5” x 11.5” x 3.75” / 1005 x 292 x 95mm (LxWxH), the fixture is easily portable and convenient to rig.
For maximum flexibility, the unit is fitted with both 3-pin and 5-pin DMX input and output sockets. It also features locking power input and output sockets, which can be used to daisy chain the supply of up to 11 fixtures at 120V (12 at 240V) from a single power source. Thanks to its extremely efficient LED light sources, the Saber Bar 6 consumes a maximum of just 85W of power and offers auto-sensing multi-voltage operation (100-240V, 50/60Hz) making it suitable for worldwide touring productions.
The fixture boasts six dimming curve modes, adjustable LED refresh rate and a choice of DMX channel modes, all of which can be easily configured using its intuitive in-built display screen interface. It also offers extremely smooth 16-bit fine dimming control and the option of variable speed strobe/pulse effects, as well as internal programs to allow standalone operation in addition to DMX control.
“The Saber Spot Series of LED-powered pinspots has proved to be popular with many lighting professionals who have put them to use in a multitude of varied applications,” enthuses ADJ USA’s National Sales Manager, Alfred Gonzales. “The new Saber Bar 6 adds a new flexible lighting tool to the Saber Spot family which is ideal for when multiple pinspot beams are required in one place. It combines the convenience of a single power and DMX connection with the flexibility of six separate pinspot beams which can each be individually positioned and controlled. This, together with a flexible bracket system and three beam angle options, makes the Saber Bar 6 an attractive option for a wide variety of applications from table spotting in a banquet hall to creating beam effects on a performance stage.”
The Saber Bar 6 is available now from ADJ USA and is due to be available from ADJ Europe from July 2019. It expands the existing Saber Spot range which already includes the Saber Spot WW (warm white), Saber Spot DTW (Dim-To-Warm) and Saber Spot RGBW (red, green, blue & white) models as well as the battery-powered Saber Spot Go.
