This thermal management techonology provides Advaced Temperature Control monitored via sensors and software, keeping optimal LED junction temperatures, and ensuring maximum reliability for long-term use. The ThermalDriveTM system includes cutting-edge heat removal via passive thermal tecniques and active forced-air cooling (depending on the product), specifically designed to maintain LED efficiency while extending fixture's lifetime.
All luminaires featuring this technology include all the TruColorTM capabilities, plus high color rendering (CRI / TLCI / CQS 90+) when using all RGB or RGBAM LEDs to achieve high-output dynamic whites. SGM's TruColor+TM luminaires use an enhanced color engine that improves accuracy and consistency both for color mixing and low-end dimming, while using the same procedures to match the SGM color palette.
SGM's integrated patented Dehumidification process eliminates humidity and breaks down corrosive molecules deriving from polluted air to avoid destructive corrosion. Inbuilt dehumidifiers constantly remove trapped hydrogen from inside of the lighting fixture in a solid estate electrolytic process with no moving parts. The DryTechTM procedure is also based on a Ingress Protection rating of 65 or 66 (depending on the fixture), intended as a full protection against dust and other particles, while ensuring protection against direct water jets.
When including this proprietary technology, the luminaire features two types of light source in the same reliable fixture, allowing independent operational capabilities in terms of control, output, beam angle, design, and energy consumption. All DualSourceTM fixtures are based on an optimized power management system that shares the same power supply for all sources, while delivering the maximum possible output in each light source when used independently.
Designer selectable algorithm for advanced color path control, allowing any mixed RGB value to hold a specific color point in the spectrum by modifying the color temperature data. Color filter emulation presets react to color temperature adjustments when this color path is selected. All products featuring the next-gen VersaPathTM color engine also include the standard SGM proprietary color mixing algorithm.
The Q-8 combines the compact size and low power consumption of the Q-7 with the advanced industrial design of the Q-10. This high color quality fixture features RGBW mixing with pixel-mapping control and over 50,000 lumens of output, all in a durable IP66 housing.
The SGM Q-8 POI is a wash fixture that is made to the quality standards of a studio fixture. This latest evolution of the Q series engine can provide over 51,000 lumens and is capable of a CRI of 95+.
High color rendering
With a calibrated CRI and TLCI performance above 95, the Q-8 is the first RGBW wash fixture to achieve this level of white reproduction and outstanding output when mixing 4 LEDs. With SGM's TruColor+TM technology, the Q-8 can deliver over 42,000 LM-79 lumens and features excellent color rendition. A great wash light for close to medium throw distances, the Q-8 serves a huge range of applications in different segments.
The Q-8 includes 4 segments with independent control as well as a dual color strobe feature which can strobe in a color while using a different color in the background. With Q-8 you can experience shadow and beam animations like never before from an architectural wash fixture.
2 color engines in the same fixture
Along with the industry leading SGM color mixing, the Q-8 brings added value with SGM's VersaPathTM : a designer selectable algorithm for advanced control over color transitions. With VersapathTM, operators can warm up or cool down their mixed RGB colors over the black body curve, deciding which dominant prevails when moving from one color to another. When combined with CTC, Q-8 users can also emulate color filters over a specific native color temperature or mimic the color path response of third-party RGB fixtures.
Full control via Studio Mode
The Q-8 includes the powerful SGM DMX Studio Mode, expanding its capabilities through a number of advanced features. Select up to 12 different dimming curves with fast response, smooth (default) fade-in, and low-end extended ranges, choose your preferred color mode (RGB CTC, RGBW CTC, RGB+W CTC, CMY, HSI, or XY), adjust fan speed to reduce noise, change the PWM frequency range (3.1Khz to 30Khz), select up to 7 High-speed modes for camera setups up to 2000 fps), and adjust Plus/Minus Green mode. (Find out more about the SGM Studio Mode by reviewing the DMX chart in the "Download" section.)
Maximum reliability, all-weather design
With its IP66 rating, proven form-factor, integrated dehumidifier, and a sealed IP67 wet base, the SGM Q series engine is now available in a compact dual-purpose tank of a housing. Q-8 users benefit from SGM's ThermalDriveTM control, patented DryTechTM system, and multiple years of experience in all-weather lighting technology.
Included SGM technologies
SGM’s thermal management technology provides advanced temperature control and monitoring via sensors and software, keeping optimal LED junction temperatures, and ensuring maximum reliability for long-term use. The ThermalDriveTM system includes cutting-edge heat removal via passive thermal techniques and active forced-air cooling (depending on the product), specifically designed to maintain LED efficiency while extending fixture's lifetime.
All fixtures featuring TruColorTM benefit from a calibrated color gamut across the SGM range. The Q-8 also brings high color rendering (CRI / TLCI / CQS 90+) and achieves high-output dynamic whites. SGM's TruColor+TM fixtures use an enhanced color engine that improves accuracy and consistency both for color mixing and low-end dimming, while using the same procedures to match the SGM color palette.
SGM's integrated patented Dehumidification process eliminates humidity and breaks down corrosive molecules from polluted air to avoid destructive corrosion. Inbuilt dehumidifiers constantly remove trapped hydrogen from inside of the lighting fixture in a solid estate electrolytic process with no moving parts. The DryTechTM offers protection beyond the standard IP65 or 66 ratings, which protection against dust and other particles, while ensuring protection against direct water jets.
This designer selectable algorithm for advanced color path control allows any mixed RGB value to hold a specific color point in the spectrum by modifying the color temperature data. Color filter emulation presets react to color temperature adjustments when this color path is selected.
