LEDs and other modern fixtures draw less power and require fewer circuits – but need more control. ColorSource Raceway is a purpose-built, configurable distribution raceway solution that delivers the power and control LED rigs need in a lightweight, economical package. It is perfect for over-stage electrics and installed lighting positions in school theatres, houses of worship, and other smaller, budget-conscious venues.
Strength and Power
The ColorSource Raceway lets users build exactly the distribution strip they want. The all-aluminum construction consists of 1-foot (0.3m) sections up to a maximum of 74 feet (22.5m) in length. It can house up to six 20A circuits for performance lighting, allowing users to choose exactly how much power they need. Each section contains two slots for flush power outlets or data connectors. The outlets can be Stage Pin, Edison, duplex Edison, powerCON TRUE1, or Twist-Lock, and each outlet can be wired to any of the six performance-lighting circuits. In addition, ColorSource Raceway offers an integrated LED work light kit which mounts directly onto the hanger bracket – saving room on the bar.
ColorSource Raceway is compatible with standard schedule 40 pipe, but is also available with an optional reinforced aluminum batten by ETC. The Raceway and aluminum ETC batten combined weigh only 4 pounds per foot (5.9 kg/meter) – making them ideal partners for Prodigy FlyPipe and P2 hoists. The batten is internally-strengthened with the same outer dimension as a standard pipe and supports point loads up to 65 pounds (30 kg), and distributed loads up to 100 pounds (45 kg) over a 10-foot (3 meter) span.
Data for days
Each Raceway comes with DMX or network input. Users can specify up to 24 DMX Active Pass-Thru ports on each Raceway to control up to 32 DMX/RDM devices. Each port offers auto-terminating DMX pass-through along the length of the strip, and actively splits the DMX run at each connector. This reduces your cabling needs, meaning only one power cable and one data cable at each connector, cutting costs and making for a cleaner installation.
