ADJ Expands Popular Hydro Series Of IP65-rated Moving Head Fixtures With One Profile And Two Spots

Since their debut in 2018, ADJ Lighting’s Hydro Series of automated luminaires have developed a strong reputation as reliable, versatile and keenly-priced IP65-rated lighting solutions. Previously offering beam and wash fixtures, the range is now expanding to include moving head spot and profile options, rounding out ADJ’s product portfolio to cover all the needs of lighting professionals looking for the freedom offered by ‘all weather’ IP65 fixtures. The flagship Hydro Profile is a feature-packed profile luminaire, while the Hydro Spot 1 and Hydro Spot 2 offer two distinct spot options to suit different budgets and technical requirements.

All of the Hydro Series fixtures feature robust all metal construction and are IP65-rated to allow safe temporary outdoor use in all weather conditions. The sealed casing design also means that the light source, electronics and internal mechanisms are protected from dust, dirt and airborne particles, including humidity and haze residue. The fixtures therefore require reduced maintenance schedules and are likely to offer extended operational lifespans, when compared with conventional fixtures. For this reason, many production companies are choosing to invest in all IP65-rated equipment, giving the flexibility to use them for both indoor and outdoor events. Similarly, many installers are choosing Hydro Series fixtures even for indoor permanent installations.

Sitting proudly at the top of the expanded Hydro Series, the Hydro Profile combines an immense 660-Watt LED engine, which produces 25,000 Lumens, with an expansive feature set to offer a professional lighting powerhouse. Its beam can be precisely manipulated using a four-blade rotatable framing system, alongside motorized zoom (6 ~ 45 degrees), focus and iris, together with two frost filters. A CMY color mixing system, combined with a variable CTO flag and six slot replaceable color wheel, allow for exceptional versatility and creative freedom when it comes to color selection. Meanwhile, two GOBO wheels, two rotating prisms (six-facet circular and five-facet linear), and an animation wheel allow for the creation of an almost unlimited variety of aerial effects and surface pattern projections.

Offering a compact and budget-friendly IP65-rated spot solution, the Hydro Spot 1 features a potent 200-Watt cool white LED engine and delivers punchy output which can be manipulated using an extensive collection of beam-shaping tools. These include motorized zoom (for a beam angle of 11° ~ 22°), motorized focus, two frost filters (light and heavy), two rotating prisms (five-facet linear & six-facet circular), six rotating and replaceable GOBOs, and two color wheels (each with eight options).

The larger Hydro Spot 2 model is powered by a potent 320-Watt cool white LED engine. It offers an impressive 15,000 lumen output while featuring a wide variety of beam shaping tools to provide lighting designers with a huge amount of creative potential. Its features include an animation wheel to create an unlimited variety of aerial effects and surface pattern projections, motorized zoom (for a beam angle of 8° ~ 41°) and focus, two frost filters, CMY color mixing along with a variable CTO flag and independent color wheel, two GOBO wheels (one fixed, one rotating and replaceable) and two rotating prisms (five-facet linear & six-facet circular).

“Designed to make IP65-rated moving head fixtures accessible to mid-sized production companies and integrators, the Hydro Series has proved immensely popular since it hit the market almost four years ago,” comments ADJ USA’s National Sales Manager, Alfred Gonzales. “The versatility of these fixtures has been embraced by the industry, therefore expanding the range to include profile and spot options was the logical evolution of the Series. Hats off to our R&D team for diligently working to develop fixtures that we know offer the best possible combination of features, build quality and value.”

“In developing these new luminaires, we have listened carefully to feedback from customers – many of whom already use Hydro Series fixtures – expressing the desire for profile and spot options with the same build quality and in the same price range as the existing Hydro Wash and Beam devices,” adds ADJ’s European Sales Director, Sebastian Mobers. “We are confident that these new additions to the Hydro Series will meet, and in many cases exceed, the requirements of these users and we looking forward to showcasing their potential at the upcoming Prolight+Sound trade show.”

The Hydro Profile, Hydro Spot 1 and Hydro Spot 2 will be officially unveiled later this month at Prolight+Sound 2022, taking place at Messe Frankfurt in Germany, 26 thru 29 April. ADJ will be exhibiting from booth E51 in Hall 12.1, where the company’s experienced and multilingual team of sales and product specialists will be on hand to answer questions and provide one-on-one demos of a host of new fixture releases, including the Hydro Series additions. These three new members of the Hydro Series will also be on display in the U.S. at the ADJ Reunited Thru Light Tour, NAMM 2022 and InfoComm 2022.
