Three output channels

Original flames of a fireplace “dance” around.

The 3 channel “fire” preset of the LFXHub automatically alternates the dim level of each channel the way a real flame would behave – flickering shadows.

For TV effects with three channels even the color changes in RGB mode when three different lamps are used.

Use different effect gels on the three lamps – the color temperature would change either.

If the object is too far away from the background you will not see flickering shadows, normaly a distance of around 60 cm (2 ft) is ideal.

Ramp

Use every type and size of tungsten lamps or LED.

A result of an effect would look different with the same signal used at different lamp types/sizes, particularly if an LED lamp is used.

“Ramp” adapts effects to the duration of persistence of various types of filaments or to LED lamps.

The timing difference between the moment of electrical deactivation and the time of a completely extinguished light depends on the power of the bulb.

Choose the transition mode depending on the connected type and size of lamp (bulb inertia).

Thus any lighting effect looks excellent – with a 10K, a redhead, a standard 60 W bulb, fluoros or LED.

Use “Ramp” for different styles of e.g. fire – from aggressive to smooth.

Interfaces

LFXHub flicker box digital output

for DMX module

Drive the lamp you want

Different interfaces of the LFXHub makes it easy to drive virtually any lamp fitting your needs.

Smart interfaces simplify even normally time consuming set-up of lighting effects.

  • The internal built-in silent dimmer is perfect for most effects with tungsten lamps
  • Three 0…10VDC outputs operate ECGs for fluoros, analog strobes or analog dimmer packs or KinoFlo´s Divalite series
  • The optional DMX-512 module opens the door widely for control of LED lamps, multi-channel DMX dimmer packs, dimmer -shutter & strobes

No limits

The maximum output power only depends on the number and maximum output power of the connected dimmer or led fixtures.

Create a fire effect with flickering shadows or a sequencer for neon sign effects on the fly.

Lightning

This is an upgrade option for the LFXHub.

The “lightningFX” upgrade consists of the trigger module and a software upgrade with three additional presets: lightningX, single -flash and multi-flash.

Create stunning lightning and flash effects controlling one or more dimmer-shutter(s) using HMIs up to 18 kW or any number of LED lamps.

Link the shutters via DMX with the LFXHub.

The HMI is steadily on, the dimmer-shutter controls the brightness.

Advantages

  • extra power generator not required
  • spot or flood HMI(s)
  • daisy-chain a virtually unlimited number of shutters or LED
  • existing equipment can be used
  • multi-channel flashes

Create breathtaking “moving” thunderstorm flashes using three channels.
