Astera have officially released their latest wireless creation and instalment in the X-Series, the Lightdropâ„˘ (AX3).
Online PR News – 12-August-2014 – Rudesheim an der Nahe – Astera have officially released their latest wireless creation and instalment in the X-Series, the Lightdropâ„˘ (AX3). The updated and enhanced replacement to the previous Lightdropâ„˘ (AL3-M) is equipped with many more features and improved capabilities.
This compact and powerful RGBW spotlight improves on its previous model with high-power Cree LEDs and other top-quality components like Samsung batteries and in-built, optional CRMX Wireless DMX by Lumen Radio. The polyamide/polystyrene housing protects and cools the device from its heat-generating, high-powered components, keeping it cool, thus maximising its runtime.
Being twice as bright as the previous Lightdropâ„˘, the AX3 is also considered a replacement for other discontinued Astera lights such as the 24W Wireless Spotlight (AL7-L). The AX3 contains a 15W Cree LED chip, with a narrow 13Â° beam angle, which makes it ideal for spotlighting, and the AX3 is also flexible in that it can be used inside light-up furniture with the use of an included diffusor dome.
A substantial advantage over its predecessor is the inclusion of an adjustable bracket, which can be used to mount the fixture to truss structures and to position the fixture at a desired angle. Just like the AL3-M, the AX3 also comes with a magnetic underside for easy attachment to metallic surfaces.
Sebastian BĂĽckle, Sales & Marketing Director at Astera, commented; â€śThe AX3, it excels in its versatility. There are multiple uses for the AX3, and weâ€™re sure that customers will find more and more creative uses for it. Already it can act as a down light, a spotlight, a wallwasher, and a source for light-up furniture, but with its superior components, weâ€™re sure that it can achieve even moreâ€ť.
Like all of Asteraâ€™s wireless lights, the AX3 is controllable by the entire range of controllers, plus optionally by Wireless CRMX from Lumen Radio and W-DMX from Wireless Solutions, as well as Asteraâ€™s own Wireless DMX Transmitter (ART3), all to a range of 300m. It can be controlled by the recently released AsteraAppâ„˘, the free software designed to control Astera lights; compatible with all Bluetooth-enabled Android 4.0.4 devices or newer.
The AX3 Lightdropâ„˘ is the second release in the X-Series from Astera, following the SpotMaxâ„˘ (AX10) last year. The next addition to this advanced product line is the SpotLiteâ„˘ (AX7), which is a replacement for the AL7-XXL, with a release expected in the next few months.
