Blackout's LED star cloths are manufactured from an innovative, light weight molton trevira - a modern alternative to the traditional wool serge - and fitted with energy efficient, low maintenance, long life LED lamps. All cloths are backed with IFR Polyester Trevira and are finished with ties to the top and one side plus Velcro all round to enable the joining of cloths in any direction.
The product, StarLED, contains single surface mounted white or RGB LED's fitted to printed circuit boards. The circuit board is encapsulated in a moulded polycarbonate holder, which is attached to the back of the cloth. The holder is designed to give the maximum viewing angle of the light source as well as providing the required protection.
A dimmer unit is mounted in the corner of each cloth, taking power input at 24vdc and DMX data input via a 4pin XLR cable which is also used to deliver power and DMX to the next cloth.
The 150watt Power Supplies can operate at either 110 or 230volts, via an internal switch. One Power Supply will power 200 square meters of StarLed. The unit takes DMX data input via a standard 5pin XLR connector. Rotary switches allow the DMX control slots of the dimmers to be selected. Additional switches allow pre-programmed effects sequences to be played. To avoid the need for termination at the end of a run of cloths the dimmer unit has been designed to self terminate the incoming data.
The RGB LED will allow a huge variety of colours in conjunction with a DMX Lighting control.
