ADJ's Popular Profile Pro Series Expands with Two New Zoom Lens

ADJ introduces EP lens 2550Z (25 - 50°) and EP lens 1530Z (15 - 30°) for efficiency and flawless lighting output

Two new high-definition zoom lens options are now available for ADJ's popular encore profile pro WW and encore profile pro color ellipsoidal theatrical lighting fixtures. The new EP lens 2550Z (25 - 50°) and EP lens 1530Z (15 - 30°) make these already versatile fixtures even more convenient to use, allowing for field angle adjustments to be made quickly and easily without the need to swap lens assemblies.

Both lenses have been meticulously designed and precision engineered to ensure maximum efficiency and flawless output. Their optical systems each incorporate a plano-convex aspheric front lens, combined with a bi-convex aspheric rear lens, which have both been treated with an anti-reflective coating. In addition to manual zoom, the lenses also offer manual focus control, allowing adjustment of the beam edge from soft to hard.

The lens movement is designed to be smooth and effortless, allowing for easy adjustment with just one hand. This enables a single user to simultaneously set the field angle and focus, ensuring a quick and efficient workflow. 20-gauge stainless steel 4-blade shutter assemblies allow for meticulous sharpness without any halation. In addition, on the front of the lenses are sturdy gel frame holders, each with two accessory slots and a top mounted, quick release, electroplated black gel frame retainer.

As with the Encore Profile Pro fixtures themselves, these new zoom lens models feature a robust construction designed to withstand the rigors of busy theaters, touring productions, and event rentals. The tough barrels are finished with a thick matt black powder coating, and they feature high impact, thermally insulated knobs and shutter handles.

"Since their launch three years ago, the LED-powered Encore Profile Pro WW and Encore Profile Pro Color ellipsoidals have proved to be extremely popular for installation projects in theaters, churches and concert halls, as well as for rental and event production applications," comments ADJ USA's Director of Sales, Alfred Gonzales. "However, we are always listening to our customers and recognized the desire for zoom lenses to provide Encore Profile Pro users with added versatility. Offering excellent build quality and optical clarity, the EP 2550Z and EP 1530Z allow the field angle to be changed quickly and easily at any time without the need carry multiple fixed angle lenses."

The Encore Profile Pro ellipsoidal fixtures offer the power-saving and heat-reducing benefits of LED without compromising on performance or features. Utilizing a potent 260W warm white LED light engine with a color temperature of 3200K, the Encore Profile Pro WW generates an even field of light, with no hot spot, and boasts a high CRI more than 97. Alternatively, the Encore Profile Pro Color features a 250W 6-in-1 RGBWAL LED engine, which can be used to generate a huge gamut of colors ranging from vibrant primaries to subtle hues through independent dimming control of the red, green, blue, white, amber and lime LED elements. It can also be used to generate color-corrected white light, with a macro function providing easy selection of a range of different Kelvin color temperatures and offers a CRI more than 90.
