Incorporating feedback from customers, CHAUVET has re-tooled its flagship Legend Series to enhance dimmer/shutter functions, accelerate color and gobo changes, bring more flexibility to pan and tilt movements and add the manufacturer’s signature Gobo BounceTM effect in select moving yokes.
The shutter and dimmer can now function in tandem and dimming is reversible in Legend 6000X Wash, Legend 5000X and Legend 3000X. Fade in /Fade out and random strobing capability have been added to the shutter function. Pan and tilt movements can now be set from channel 1 to channel 4.
All three Legends now also sport an LED-lit DMX signal indicator. In the loss of DMX signal, fixtures go back to “0” position in 5 seconds. The display setting is now reversible to allow easier reading when fixtures are hung.
The three yokes move smoothly within 570 degrees of pan and 270 degrees of tilt. Optical encoders monitor movement and automatically re-align the heads in the event of an inadvertent change in position. Mechanical dimmers ensure smooth color and effect transitions
Legend 6000X Wash offers the creative wealth of a CMY color system. Precise remote calibration ensures color consistency across multiple fixtures .The color wheel offers dichroic red, green, blue, purple plus CTO 3,200 0 K, CTB 5000 0 K color temperature filters. A total of 31 preset color macros are also immediately accessible. The mechanical shutter allows from full open to blackout as well as variable strobe of up to 7 flashes per second. Full range dimming occurs in smooth, reliable micro-steps. Beam angle can be adjusted linearly from 10 0 all the way up to 30 0 making it easy to finesse projections gradually. A variable frost filter allows zoom effects. Each unit comes equipped with a 575 HMI 6000 0 K lamp source.
