Litepanels small-footprint LED fixture Hilio is now shipping.

The daylight colour balanced light is designed to be a replacement for HMI lamps.

Litepanels said Hilio provides the same output at 5600˚K as a 575W HMI, but draws just 115W. The LED source offers a life of 50,000 hours and can be operated from a 24V battery as well as from an AC power source.

“We work closely with lighting directors around the world and they told us they needed something with the traditional Litepanels flexibility and convenience which could fill the HMI role,” said Pat Grosswendt, technical director at Litepanels.

Hilio is dimmable from 100% to zero and is controllable by either an on-fixture knob or via a DMX dimmer.
