BB&S Lighting has introduced three and four-foot long Pipeline Free remote phosphor LED lighting fixtures.
BB&S said the new lights add more possibilities for use of the cylindrical pipe-style lighting that is popular for broadcast studios, motion pictures and video of all types. The new three and four-foot sizes join the existing four-inch, eight-inch, one foot and two foot pipes.
The phosphor fixtures feature inline driver/dimmers so they operate stand-alone. They draw is 10 watt per foot, delivering 1000 lumens per foot of length at 98 TLCI. Each length is available in 3200°K, 4300°K or 5600°K color temperatures. The fixtures are available individually or in kits.
The rugged, aluminum-backed, Pipes are just one-inch in diameter and output light spread over 180 degrees. Among Pipeline’s advantages are low power draw and heat-free operation.
The lights are power versatile via 12V automobile battery, 14.4V battery via D-tap, or AC adapter. They ship with a Locking AC power cable complete with a cold shoe adapter with pin.
Pipeline fixtures can be mounted virtually anywhere: on the ceiling, a lighting grid, on a C-stand or in a doorway. Dial in to just the right dimming level without any color shift.
