SUNRISE, Fla. – When CHAUVET Professional’s Ovation E-190WW won the WFX New Product Technology Award in 2013, the breakthrough LED ellipsoidal was hailed for combining an exceptionally beautiful flat, even field of warm white light with the efficiencies of LED technology (plus some kickin’ user features, such as a gobo/accessory slot and interchangeable lenses). Now those who want a smaller, less powerful LED ellipsoidal can enjoy the same award-winning quality and versatile features provided by the original in a compact fixture that’s less than half the size and one-fifth the weight – the Ovation Min-E-10WW.
As its name conveys, the Ovation Min-E-10WW was designed to be a “mini” complement to its acclaimed predecessor. Almost pocket-sized, it measures just 8.9 x 4.3 x 9.1 inches (225 x 108 x 232 mm) without lens extension, making it an ideal choice anywhere an excellent quality warm white ellipsoidal is needed for small spaces and discreet use – from theaters and churches, to concerts and productions of all types.
Powered by a punchy 10-watt 3053K LED, the Ovation Min-E-10WW produces a hard-edged beam that’s perfect for gobo projection too. Like its larger cousin, it includes a convenient built-in gobo holder/gel frame. Standard E-size gobos will fit the Ovation Min-E-10WW (37.5 mm outside, 28 mm inside, 1 mm maximum thickness).
The Ovation Min-E-10WW also offers the versatility to meet different beam angle requirements. Like the original, it comes with interchangeable lens tubes: a 19° lens tube for producing a tightly focused beam; and a 36° lens tube for a softer, more diffuse beam. When a 19° lens is installed the fixture’s output is 261 lux at 5 meters, and with a 36° lens it produces 104 lux at 5 meters.
Users can also direct the light precisely where they want it to go, since the Ovation Min-E-10WW is equipped with a four-blade shutter system. By altering the projected beam with the framing shutters, specific areas can be highlighted, and conversely, light can be cropped from “spilling” into places where it is not wanted.
“For such a small, discreet fixture, the Ovation Min-E-10WW offers a lot of professional features to help users achieve the exact lighting look they want and to provide versatility for different applications,” said Ben Dickmann, Product Manager for CHAUVET Professional. “This rich feature set, along with the extraordinary quality of its warm white light, are things the Ovation Min-E-10WW shares in common with our full-size Ovation E-190WW LED ellipsoidal, which won the WFX New Product Technology Award for these very attributes. The Ovation Min-E-10WW is perfect for designers and lighting users who need a smaller LED ellipsoidal, but don’t want to sacrifice quality or features – they can now ‘have it all’ in a scaled-down version that’s about the size of a flashlight.”
Surprisingly lightweight even for its compact size, the Ovation Min-E-10WW weighs a mere 2.8 pounds (1.3 kg) without a lens, making it very easy to install and transport. It’s virtually maintenance- free, too, since its LED source has a long 50,000-hour life expectancy and will run for years.
The Ovation Min-E-10WW is easily dimmable using external dimmer packs appropriate for LED lighting or it can be controlled by 0-10v architectural controllers. It is CE and MET approved for safe, worry-free installation and operation.
