The Color Force Compact enables an even wider range of users and
budgets to utilise the power of the Color Force as a creative lighting
Power Across The Spectrum
The Color Force Compact uses its huge RGBA colour mixing
palette to deliver a full range of high brightness colours across
the spectrum. Deep cold blues, red hot lava looks and super soft
pastels are all available from a single fixture.
The Chroma-Q™ Color Force Compact™ is a powerful creative
lighting tool that works in perfect harmony with the popular Color
Force™ range. The Compact is a cost-effective workhorse, ideal
for a wide range of applications. Utilising core LED technology
from the Color Force range, the fixture provides 1700 lumens in
a cost-effective, slim, compact profile, while maintaining colour
compatibility with the rest of the range.
Compact Yet Powerful
Despite measuring only 235mm / 9.25” in length, the Color Force
Compact produces a powerful 1700 lumens output - making it
ideal for lighting areas with a very small footprint.
Multi-Purpose Workhorse Fixture
With its rugged external design, the Color Force Compact has
been designed as a multi-purpose workhorse fixture suitable
for numerous entertainment lighting applications - including
uplighting, pipe-end shin-busting, backlighting, truss toner and
other wash applications.
Fast & Efficient Set-Up
Up to five fixtures can be daisy-chained from each 15-way Compact
PSU output, eliminating the need to home-run a cable from each
fixture back to the PSU. In addition, up to four fixtures per output can
be daisy-chained on a Chroma-Q Color Block PSU (PSU-05B, PSU530).
