Product overview
The Chroma-Q Studio Force™ 48 & 72 LED fixtures range features a choice of 6,100K CCT, daylight white (Studio Force D
48 & 72) and 3,000K – 6,100K CCT, variable white (Studio Force V 48 & 72) models – the latter featuring laboratory
calibrated 3200°K and 5600°K presets.
Utilising the same core technologies as the innovative Chroma-Q Color Force™ range, all models offer at least twice the
light output of their RGBA colour variants.
The Studio Force D units provide an extreme output ranging from 20,000 lumens (D 48) up to 28,000 lumens (D 72). The
Studio Force V units provide an extreme output ranging from 16,900 lumens (V 48) up to 25,400 lumens (V 72).
In addition to evenly washing large areas, they provide smooth, theatrical grade dimming.
The Studio Force range is specifically designed for TV, film, touring, exhibitions, corporate events and theatre lighting
applications.
The Studio Force D & Studio Force V line-ups each feature a choice of 1.2m / 4ft (48) and 1.8m / 6ft (72) batten lengths.
The units are suitable for a wide range of lighting applications, including key-lighting, uplighting, backlighting and wash
applications.
Optional accessories include a cyc and border light lens for general purpose wash applications, and a half snoot.
The 1.2m / 4ft Studio Force D 48 & V 48 batten lengths utilise eight light engines featuring 24 high powered LEDs per
engine / a total of 192 LEDs per fixture.
The 1.8m / 6ft Studio Force D 72 & V 72 batten lengths utilise 12 light engines featuring 24 high powered LEDs per engine /
a total of 288 LEDs per fixture.
Each Studio Force D batten length features 24 cold white LEDs per engine, whereas the Studio Force V batten lengths
feature 12 cold white and 12 warm white LEDs per engine.
The models are equipped with a built-in power supply and can operate as a standalone unit or be remotely controlled
through ANSI E1.11 USITT DMX 512-A protocol. The control options incorporate a choice of multiple channel intensity
control, effects and a dynamic Variable Effects Engine integrated in the software, which gives the user full control of the
effects combination.
The product's robust anodised aluminum extruded construction houses a discreet cable management system. Additional
protection is built around the lenses for a truly road proof fixture.

Note: HANDHELD COLOUR METERS
Handheld Colour Meters provide a very limited measuring range for LED fixtures, which results in inconsistent and unreliable
data.
All photometric values listed in this document are based on testing and measurements conducted by certified independent
laboratories with reference to the IES standards.

2.8 Thermal Performance
The Studio Force D / V 48 & 72 fixtures feature 2 internal fans that drive the internal cooling system.
The output of the fixture is reduced for automatic protection if the internal temperature exceeds 75ºC. This happens on rare
and extreme conditions when ambient temperature is over 35ºC or the internal fans are blocked or damaged.
The airflow to and from the fan must not be constricted to maintain the maximum operating capacity of the Studio Force D /
V 48 & 72 fixtures.

Maintenance
With care, the Studio Force D / V 48 & 72 fixtures will require little maintenance. However, as the unit is likely to be used in a
stage environment we recommend periodical internal inspection and cleaning of any resulting dust and cracked oil residue.
Do not spray liquids on the front or rear panel. If the front enclosure requires cleaning, wipe with a mild detergent on a damp
cloth.
