New Equinox RGB Power Batten Hits Retailers
Prolight Concepts Group has announced the release of the new Equinox RGB Power Batten, an affordable LED bar unit that uses 240 RGB LEDs, eight-segment control and a wide 30-degree beam angle to offer mobile DJs a low-cost but highly effective wash and up-lighting solution.

Available now from retailers across the UK, the newly released RGB Power Batten from Equinox is fitted with 96 red, 72 green and 72 blues LEDs, providing users with 240 10mm LEDs that are split into eight segments along the batten. This large number and RGB LEDs and individually controllable segments give mobile DJs access to dynamic colour-mixing and let them create unique colour-chase effects. Furthermore, the RGB Power Batten also offers a 30⁰ beam angle to ensure far-reaching wash effects and uplighting that can be applied to longer areas of wall.

Thanks to its 0-100% dimming and strobing effects, DJs can also adjust the intensity of the RGB Power Batten’s displays to suit the events they work – whether keeping things subdued for a wedding reception or upping the ante using strobing when the party gets started.

“This slim batten packs plenty of punch,” said Bernie Marsh, General Manager, Prolight Concepts Group. “The on-board features and superior build quality at this price point make this RGB Power Batten perfect for uplighting!”

In terms of control, the RGB Power Batten’s colour-chase programs can be accessed and automatically triggered in the unit’s auto and sound-to-light modes, for when mobile DJs want pre-programmed effects to work in time with their music. Meanwhile, for more complex displays, Equinox also gives users access to six DMX settings (2-, 3-, 4-, 7-, 14- and 26-channel modes), so mobile DJs can get creative with their colour mixing, using the RGB LEDs to produce a series of rich hues, as well as adjust the speed and brightness of their displays.

By not only being affordable, but lightweight (1.8kg) and compact (85 x 1075 x 65mm) too, the RGB Power Batten is also well-suited to the needs of the mobile DJ in terms of practicality and transportability. Meanwhile, adding to this convenience, the unit’s included bracket provides users with multiple rigging or floor-standing options.

The RGB Power Batten from Equinox is available now at an SSP of £59.
