CHAUVET DJ’s Battery-Powered EZwash Hex IRC With 6-in-1 LEDs

November 2014

aurora1SUNRISE, Fla. – Casting a glowing wash of color onto tables, centerpieces, cakes and other artifacts can make any event seem more special — and now it’s easier than ever to illuminate such small but important focal points, thanks to CHAUVET DJ’s new EZwash Hex IRC.  This self-contained mini LED colorwash fixture is compact enough to fit virtually anywhere, and it can be set up in seconds because it runs on its own built-in battery, no power cords required.

The EZwash Hex IRC will always provide just the right color for any décor or event, too, because it utilizes versatile 6-in-1 RGBAW+UV LEDs. Each unit’s illumination source is comprised of red, green, blue, amber, white and ultraviolet diodes, all combined into one bright 10-watt LED.  This makes it possible to blend any desired hue and achieve even the most subtle color nuances — from bold jeweltones to soft pastels, stark whites to buttery creams, and even shimmering iridescent shades with the addition of UV light.

Along with the convenience of battery operation, the EZwash Hex IRC offers the option of wireless control.  It’s compatible with CHAUVET DJ’s IRC-6 wireless infrared remote controller (sold separately), which gives users the ability to blend colors and execute other commands from distances up to 30 feet (9M) – for total “no strings” operation.

“With the EZwash Hex IRC, you can give any wedding, party or special event a distinctive, elegant ambience by highlighting tabletops, food, art objects and other small areas with a wash of color that perfectly complements the overall theme or décor,” said Rick Peeples, Product Manager for CHAUVET DJ.  “Such ‘table-spotting’ displays are becoming a big visual trend at events of all types today, and the EZwash Hex IRC makes it easy for DJs, emcees and entertainers to provide this professional look to their clients.

“The fixture can create a limitless palette of colors, thanks to its 6-in-1 RGBAW+UV LEDs,” added Peeples, “yet it fits into very small spaces.  Plus, because it’s battery-operated and can be controlled with an optional IR wireless remote, it gives you complete freedom from the burden and unsightliness of cords.  This is one light that every DJ and mobile entertainer should have in their toolchest.”

Bright and powerful for its small size, the EZwash Hex IRC emits an illuminance of 270 lux at 2 meters, ensuring it will be an eye-catching enhancement at any event. It features a beam angle of 22°, and includes a variable (0-20Hz) strobe effect.

With a battery run time of up to 6 hours, the EZwash Hex IRC will shine its colors throughout the evening’s festivities.  Its battery then can be re-charged within 4 hours.  The unit can also run on external power: 100 to 240 VAC, 50/60 Hz.

Along with its cordless battery operation, another feature that makes the EZwash Hex IRC easy to set up is a magnetic base on its case, which affixes to most metal surfaces, eliminating the need for clamps.  The fixture also includes a scissor clip with eye loop that can be quickly and easily attached to drop ceiling supports for overhead mounting. Each EZwash Hex IRC fixture measures just 5.4 x 2.9 x 7.1 inches (136 x 73 x 182 mm) and weighs 1.6 pounds (0.8 kg).

In addition to offering individual units, CHAUVET DJ is making the EZwash Hex IRC available in a convenient multi-fixture EZwash Hex Pack.  This cost-saving package bundles 4 x EZwash Hex IRC units, 1 x IRC-6 wireless remote and 1 x multi-charger into an easy-to-transport VIP Gear Bag.  Ideal for mobile use, the entire package, including the bag, weighs just 7 pounds (3.2 kg).
