Core SWX Introduced the TorchLED Bolt 250 at NAB, New York

Core SWX is leveraging its new Refractory Lens Technology into the Bolt 250, a 250 watt output light that’s 40 percent thinner than its predecessor, the Bolt 220R.

Core SWX said the new Bolt 250 draws 13 watts of power and includes a separate on/off switch.

Featuring a wireless remote, the Bolt 250 can control the light from up to 250 feet away. The nine channel remote control and magnetic diffusion filter allows users to control on/off, select color temperature and adjust light intensity. The remote can bank up to 10 lights per channel, allowing for control of the lights in unison.

The Bolt 250 has an independent knob for color temperature between tungsten (3200K) and daylight (5600K), eliminating the need to mix and match between two dials for the most accurate ambient light. The zero to 100 percent dimming control allows users to change the brightness with no noticeable color shift.

The BT250 also comes with an accessory package that includes a 1/4-20 swivel shoe mount, PowerTap cable for DC powering off of a standard 14.4V brick battery and a magnetic diffusion filter. It also includes a battery and charger kit, and accepts Sony L-Series batteries.
