Product overview

The Chroma-Q™ Color Charge Plus™ is a higher output version of the original battery powered, wireless DMX fixture. It is ideal for any temporary indoor lighting applications where wiring is a challenge or where install speed is critical, transforming a venue in minutes. The Color Charge Plus utilises the very latest generation of LED and optics, resulting in 50% more output (900 lumens) than the original Color Charge (600 lumens) from the same size unit. The Color Charge Plus fixture’s environmentally friendly design includes a recyclable long life battery cell and an interchangeable LED head for upgrading in the future. The highly efficient nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) power cell delivers up to 30 hours usage from a single charge and provides up to 1,000 charges; approximately double the life of lead-acid batteries. The fixture also features a built-in mains charger that enables it to continue to be used while charging, and a gas gauge showing the percentage and hours of usage remaining. The Color Charge Plus features Wireless Solutions wireless DMX control and syncing between units, allowing connection of up to 170 fixtures on a single network. With a wireless range of 100m in a crowded room and 200m with a clear line of site, the Color Charge Plus is ideal for large indoor spaces. Also, the unit’s wireless aerial folds away discreetly for convenient transportation. The plug and play fixture also features synchronised effects between units, slave modes allowing simple opposite a/b colour effects and a built-in stand-alone playback mode. Part of the new generation of Chroma-Q LED lighting models, the Color Charge Plus utilises unique colour mixing and control management technologies providing a high quality light output. The Chroma-Q RGBA engine has been developed to deliver an incredible CRI of 92, for true colour balance across the spectrum and accurate tungsten white light emulation. The fixture utilises unique ColorSure™ technology for enhanced colour consistency across fixtures. The unit also features smooth, theatrical grade dimming, making it suitable for a wide range of temporary entertainment and architectural lighting applications. Featuring a quick focus click mechanism providing stepped beam angles, the remote head can be quickly and easily positioned. For discreet usage, the unit features a black body and optional half hat snoot to hide the lens source from view. The Color Charge Plus can be floor mounted or hung from truss via 1/2” nutsert and safely secured in place via a built-in Kensington lock slot. For maximum practicality, the Color Charge Plus can also be mains powered and controlled via wired DMX.

Important Notice: The use of an opto-splitter for DMX signal distribution is highly recommended when several fixture units (Color Punch, Color Split, Color Force, Color Charge, Color Charge Plus) are not plugged into the same power source.

2.3

Mounting

The Color Charge Plus is designed primarily for floor mounting with an optional provision for truss mounting at the bottom of the chassis. For truss mounting, we recommend the use of a ½"-13UNC x ¾" long bolt to avoid damage. Note: Secure the fixture with a safety bond. A provision for a fixing hold is built into the chassis.

2.4

Power Switch

The Color Charge Plus is equipped with an ON/OFF switch located at the side of the unit.

2.5

Battery

The Color Charge Plus is charged through the male IEC connector. A fully discharged Color Charge Plus will take around 4 hours to complete charging (98-100%). The LCD display will light up when the unit is plugged into a power source. The display will show the battery capacity in percentage. Battery voltage, current and temperature can be monitored through the ‘Information’ menu. In this menu, a fully charged battery will show voltage (BatV) – 14.1 - 14.9V, current (BatI) – 0.0A, and battery temperature (BatT) 23ºC - 25ºC not charging / 23ºC - 40ºC when charging. The Color Charge wireless reception/transmission and light output will shut down when battery life is at 2%.

2.6

Control

The Color Charge Plus can operate as a stand-alone unit or controlled remotely wired or wireless via ANSI E1.11 USITT DMX 512-A signal protocol. The control functions can be accessed through the LCD display on one side of the fixture with 4 push buttons. www.chroma-q.com Color Charge Plus User Manual

Charging Display: The Color Charge Plus display will show the battery capacity (%), the word ‘CHARGE’, control mode, DMX status, and DMX address. Power-Up Display: On power-up the display shows the model name and software version for 5 seconds, then proceeds to the main menu or home position showing in Figure 1 - the battery capacity in percentage (100), length of battery life in number of days (07day) or hours and minutes (00h00), control mode (RGBA), DMX status (Wired/WirelessDMX On/Off), and DMX address (002). Display Mode: The LCD is backlit when you access the menus. This will turn off when left undisturbed for 5 seconds. Wired DMX: The Color Charge display will automatically show ‘WiredDMX On’ when connected to an external DMX control console via XLR5 cable, which enables wired DMX control. Control Options: The Color Charge Plus is controlled via 7 modes that incorporate these generic control options: 3 channel HSI (Hue, Saturation and Intensity) provides 2 colour channels for hue and saturation, and a separate intensity channel. A separate definable intensity channel is particularly useful when creating intensity chases or when the grand master is used. The hue channel has 255 different colours available and the saturation channel specifies the saturation level of that colour. The saturation channel is fully saturated at full. White is achieved with the intensity channel to full and the saturation channel at zero. 3 channel RGB (Red, Green, Blue with *Magic Amber) is the traditional way of controlling colour changing LED fixtures. Each of the three control channels directly affects the intensity of the corresponding LED. Colour is mixed by adjusting the levels of the three primary colours. White is achieved with all channels at full including *Magic Amber. 3 channel RGB + 1 intensity channel (Red, Green, Blue with *Magic Amber and Intensity) gives 3 control channels directly affecting the intensity of the corresponding LED – Red, Green, Blue with *Magic Amber, and 1 channel affecting the intensity of all RGB channels. 4 channel RGBA (Red, Green, Blue and Amber) gives 4 control channels directly affecting the intensity of the corresponding LED – Red, Green, Blue and Amber. Colour is mixed by adjusting the levels of each of the four colours. White is achieved with all channels at full.

Maintenance

With care, the Color Charge Plus will require little maintenance. However, as the unit is likely to be used in a stage environment we recommend periodical internal inspection and cleaning of any resulting dust and cracked oil residue. Do not spray liquids on the unit. If the unit requires cleaning, wipe with a mild detergent on a damp cloth.
