Amesbury, MA. – September 1 - The Black Tank has released the newest member of the BRICKBLASTER PRO family. The new ultra-compact, 4” cubed, 50 watt BRICKBLASTER PRO UV contains the newest LED technology and allows users to vary the output beam angle from 4 degrees (native) to 60 degrees (symmetrical). The fixtures variable beam angle makes it perfect for both long throw and close range applications; 60x1 asymmetrical beam angles are also available for wall grazing. The fixture also allows for full speed 8 and 16 bit DMX512 dimming and standalone control (without a DMX source) via a rear mounted full text LCD display.

The BRICKBLASTER PRO UV is the first professional grade UV LED fixture capable of replacing large, non-dimmable, power hungry, high temperature iron-arc and gas discharge lamp fixtures common in the industry. The fixture was designed to fill a gap in architainment, themed environment, nightclub and theatrical applications by providing an alternative to typical iron-arc and gas discharge lamp. The UV utilizes a custom dichroic glass filter to cut visible unwanted light and allows users to generate high impact black light effects while retaining all of the benefits of LED technology - including small form factor, long and maintenance free life span, low heat dissipation and dimmable output.

Similar to the rest of the BRICKBLASTER PRO family, the UV can be ganged in linear arrays, suspended using its standard single yoke, mounted directly to 120VAC track (Halo, Juno, Lightolier and LSI) or by removing the yoke, it can be built directly into set pieces or placed discretely out of the public view. The enclosure can be powder coated, custom painted or anodized in a variety of colors, allowing it to seamlessly fit into theatrical sets, themed environments or in the direct view of the audience.

“The ability to generate a four degree spotlight with this fixture or use it as a wash or wall grazer by changing the beam angle makes the UV a truly versatile alternative to what has become the norm in UV lighting”, commented The Black Tank President Robert Kodadek. “LED technology has finally gotten to the point where it can be used for this application - low power consumption, high output, no heat, DMX dimmable...anyone willing to try something new will find this to be a no brainer”.

The BRICKBLASTER PRO UV and the rest of the The Black Tank product family will be on display at the Live Design International (LDI) 2011 tradeshow in Orlando, FL in Booth 420.
