ETC Desire D40XT Vivid LED Par - Black

This is from ETC's Desire Series of lighting and is a Selador D40XT Vivid wash fixture for high-intensity color mixing across the spectrum for the widest color wash use. Using the x7 Color System array, this light is best for all-around use as a color-changing wash fixture. This model has a usage rating of IP66 (exterior) that comes in a black finish with a outdoor-rated power lead with watertight Molex connector.

Your lighting doesn’t always stay indoors. You’re working outside at festivals, theme parks, video shoots, and architectural installations – and are at the mercy of Mother Nature and changing weather conditions. You require high-quality lighting products that can safely go where you go. That’s why ETC designed the Desire™ D40XT fixture. It isn’t just an ordinary LED wrapped in a waterproof body, however. ETC designed every aspect of the D40XT fixture to withstand heat, cold, rain and snow, without skimping on lighting features.

The durable Desire D40XT luminaire has an IP (Ingress Protection) rating of 66, meaning that the unit’s housing completely protects the electrical components from dust, water and the formation of ice, and can withstand temperatures ranging from -20°C to 40°C (-4°F to 104°F). From coatings and seals, to vents and cord grips, the D40XT fixture’s hardware can stand up to extreme temperatures, UV rays, and atmospheric changes. And the luminaire’s attached cabling is UL Listed for extra-hard usage and outdoor ratings.

The D40XT luminaire offers the same brilliant lighting as the standard D40 fixture, with 40 high-efficiency emitters on each unit. The D40XT includes a user-interface with an expanded LCD display for control options. Quick Setups – General, Stage, XT (Exterior)/Architectural, High-Impact, and Studio – simplify your lighting tasks, by giving specific operating behaviors for any application.

ETC built the x7 Color System™ – which combines up to seven different LED colors on one unit – into the D40XT fixture so you can take dazzling colored and crisp white light outdoors where you need it. Producing a light quality you’ve never seen before from an LED, the x7 Color System carefully balances its lighting to give you a range of adjustable color options to fit your needs.

The Desire Vivid fixture is the high-brightness, color powerhouse of the D40XT array options. If you need deep, saturated color for your outdoor installations, choose the D40XT Vivid luminaire.

    • All LED sources experience some lessening of light output and some color shift over time. LED output will vary with thermal conditions. Based on the LED manufacturer’s B50 L70 specification, a Selador luminaire will achieve ~70% of its initial output after 50,000 hours of typical usage. In individual situations, LEDs will be used for different durations and at different levels. This can eventually lead to minor alterations in color performance, necessitating slight adjustment to presets, cues or programs.
