elektraLite Launches Aero Professional-Grade Moving Light Fixture
elektraLite announced the launch of its new professional-grade moving light fixture known as the Aero. Designed for any environment requiring a mover—from churches and schools to theaters, performing arts centers, and more—Aero is powered by a 350-watt COB single-source LED delivering a balanced Cool White (6500K) color temperature and CRI of 95.
The Aero is a full‐featured tool that is compact enough for tight spaces but bright enough for large stages where strong intensity, reliability, and diversity are necessary. The fixture’s superior lensing ensures that light output is high and devoid of troublesome hot spots, while its liquid-cooled engines provide near-silent operation ideal for quiet spaces.
The new mover boasts not only a CMY system, as one would expect, but also three dichroics per wheel that offer a palette of colors simply not obtainable by color mixing alone. Deep blues, deep reds, and greens are there, plus a CTO filter, on a separate channel, for color temperature changes.
The Aero is capable of producing considerably more than just colors. It is equipped with nine interchangeable static gobos and seven interchangeable rotating gobos. The rotating gobos are also indexable on a separate channel to give maximum accuracy in positioning. Additional standout features of the Aero include, a rotating five‐way prism, iris, frost filter, and strobe. Zoom (4-35°) and focus both have normal and fine controls for complete accuracy, while the dimmer also has a channel dedicated to different types of dimmer curves.
The new fixture offers 540° of pan and 270° of tilt, with fine-tuning channels. Control is achieved via a choice of 5-pin or 3-pin XLRs for hardwired DMX, or built-in wireless DMX. There are also “locks” on both pan and tilt for transportation purposes.
The Aero’s Remote Device Management (RDM) and Micro C socket for an external power source, such as a mobile phone or external battery, also allow lighting designers and operators to set DMX channel assignments and set up menus without AC power. This is an obvious advantage when setting up menus for a truss full of fixtures.
