The Extube Series from Martin Professional is a modular system of IP65 rated linear LED luminaires designed for dynamic illumination of outdoor architecture and much more. With RGB+W color mixing, a choice of opaque lenses and easy installation, Martin says the Extube is ideal for a variety of dynamic illumination needs including floodlighting, wall-grazing, cove lighting or creating continuous lines of decorative color, inside or out.
Extube is available in two lengths; 30 cm (One foot, 12 LEDs) and 120 cm (Four foot, 48 LEDs). Extube is weatherproof rated at IP65 for the outdoor illumination of facades, structures, bridges, cruise ships and more. Made of extruded aluminum, the Extube's slim aesthetics allows the luminaire to blend inconspicuously into existing architecture. Extube includes a number of key unique features:
*High Output, High Flexibility Optics
Extube is a high output luminaire with a lamp life rating of 20,000 hours and no movable parts.
The Extube comes with a choice of narrow, medium and wide diffuser options, or it can be used without a diffuser for an even narrower beam. The standard spread angle is narrow for long throws and the module is tiltable for precise optical aiming.
If ambient temperatures are too high, output from the LEDs is automatically decreased. This extends the lifespan of the diodes, and ensures that output is maintained at the optimum level.
*Color Consistency, Color Choice, True White
Extube creates even and consistent colors. Each pixel board has been measured and calibrated, guaranteeing standardized brightness and color performance.
With four colored diodes of Red, Green, Blue and White, Martin offers a broad range of colors. The Extube's RGB+W diodes create deep, saturated colors and the addition of the white LED gives a true white, the ability to adjust color temperature, and the possibility to create soft pastel shades.
*Intuitive Color Control
The Extube offers intuitive control of color, with four distinct control modes. In addition to RGB (three channel) and RGBW (four channel) color fine-tuning, HSI (Hue, Saturation, Intensity) allows for setting the effect wanted by scrolling through hues, altering their saturation and changing their intensity. HSI-C adds color temperature control to the intuitive benefits of HSI. The Extube is controlled by industry standard DMX 512-A. For greater flexibility, the long version can be controlled either as four single pixels or as one pixel.
The Extube is 0-100% dimmable for balance of brightness or the ability to respond intelligently to the availability of natural light.
*Simple to Install, Easy to Maintain
The click-together system slides onto standard DIN rail. There is no need for an external power supply or control box unit; everything is built into the Extube, reducing logistical costs and hassle. Extube automatically auto-addresses during set-up.
The Extube is built up around modular, interconnectable units. The simple click-together system has cable-less loop-through of data and power, which limits set-up time, reduces cable mess and ensures a clean look.
The luminaire is convection cooled so no fans or other moving parts are used, and the Extube comes with a switch mode power supply for worldwide compatibility. CE, ETL & CETL approved, the Extube is built for simplicity.
