Meet the new COLORado PXL Bars

Posted on December 22, 2021

SUNRISE, FL–  Versatility is a virtue! The new IP65 rated COLORado PXL Bar 16 and COLORado PXL Bar 8 from CHAUVET Professional demonstrate that in convincing fashion, delivering a wide range of performance features, such as seamless pixel pitch between fixtures and fast, smooth motorized tilts up to 200ﹾ whether used indoors or out.

“We developed this fixture in response to customers who wanted a motorized IP65 rated batten that could be used outdoors at remote broadcast sites, festivals, and amphitheaters, as well as at indoor applications,” said Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet. “This versatility translates into a faster ROI for our customers.”

Regardless of where it’s used, the COLORado PXL Bar16 is loaded with features that will greatly expand creative possibilities for lighting designers, such as its 60ﹾ, 180ﹾ, and 200ﹾ motorized tilt range options. Other examples are the 5.8ﹾ to 48.8ﹾ zoom range of its 16 45-watt RGBW LEDs, and its two zones of control for pulsing effects.

The COLORado PXL Bar 8 also maintains pixel pitch between fixtures and has the same zoom range as its larger cousin.  However, it has fewer pixels and only one zone of control due to its smaller size. Both fixtures also have an impressive 8,875K color temperature (at full).

Adding even greater versatility to these fully pixel mappable fixtures are their built-in effects, including virtual gobo and movement macros with separate foreground and background color control. Slotted Omega brackets make it quick and easy to hang the fixtures on truss. They can also be positioned on the ground to provide a variety of different light angles.

The latest in CHAUVET Professional’s series of IP65 rated products, COLORado PXL Bar fixtures can be controlled via DMX, sACN, Art-Net, and Kling-Net; and are also RDM compatible for remote accessing and troubleshooting.

Constructed with a magnesium-aluminum alloy, die cast aluminum and high impact polymer, the new fixtures are rugged and lightweight (The COLORado PXL Bar 16 weighs 45.6 lbs./20.7 kgs.) The fixture’s body, as well as its power and data connections, software ports, 5-pin DMX input, and TCP IP input are all IP65 rated to ensure unparalleled performance regardless of the weather.
