Dracast LED500 Pro Bi-Color Overview

At just 4.0 lb the LED500 Pro Bi-Color LED Light from Dracast is an ideal choice for location work, interviews and small sets where color accuracy, control and flicker-free output are of major importance.

The durable anodized aluminum frame is supported by an oversized, U-shaped yoke with locking knobs on each side and a standard 5/8" receiver. The LED500 can be used worldwide, powered by the included 100-240 VAC adapter in the studio, or by V-Mount batteries in the field. Four-way barndoors for contouring and control of the LED500's 45-degree beam angle are available separately. For protection during transport and storage, a carry case is included.

question

How many lights can I put on a 15 amp circuit? How many Amps per light?
Asked by: Mark
Mark,For a 15 Amp circuit, you first need to multiply by the Volts. If we use 110, that gives us 1650 Watts for that circuit. However, most electricians recommend no more than 80% of capacity, so that leaves us with 1320 Watts. The LED500 runs on 30 Watts, so if we divide that into 1320 it tells us that you can run 44 of these lights on a typical 15 Amp circuit. // Also, if there are any other technical or product related questions, feel free to contact us directly at any time at [email protected]

question

Can anyone recommend some good diffusion options for these? I recently purchased a few to replace my current kit, and im noticing they are a good deal harsher then what I had (my old kit had some fairly nice soft boxes). Iv heard bad reviews on the dracast soft box, and im currently using diffusion gels. Id appreciate any solutions!
Asked by: Crozet
The softbox for the LED500 Pro works very well, and we also have diffusion filters available here: <a href= https://www.dracobroadcast.com/store/p152/Dracast_Filter_Set_for_LED500.html target= _blank >https://www.dracobroadcast.com/store/p152/Dracast_Filter_Set_for_LED500.html</a> // Also, if there are any other technical or product related questions, feel free to contact us directly at any time at [email protected]

question

What's the difference between Pro and Silver Series?
Asked by: James
The light QUALITY should be the same, but here is some information on the differences:The Pro, Plus, and Studio lines are basically our flagship lines, and are built to more exacting specifications. One example of that would be the knobs, which are sturdier and more solid on the Pro/Plus/Studio lights. The S-Series is more of an entry-level line of lights. However, the light QUALITY is the same (95+ CRI). The S-Series have a small number of plastic pieces on the otherwise anodized aluminum frame, instead of having all-metal construction like the Pro/Plus/Studio lines (which allows for better heat dissipation and brighter output). When comparing like model numbers (500 vs. 500, etc.), the S-Series is around 77% as bright as the Pro/Plus/Studio counterparts. Also, the Pro/Plus/Studio lines have more accessories available for them. The S-Series is lighter weight and generally more portable. // Also, if there are any other technical or product related questions, feel free to contact us directly at any time at [email protected]

question

What is the manufacturer's warranty period? Should I buy the protection plan?
Asked by: R F.
Manufacturer's standard warranty is one year. Whether you purchase the protection plan may be decided by how hard you plan on using your lights. If you're using them constantly, and in a wide variety of non-studio conditions, you may want to get the protection plan. // Also, if there are any other technical or product related questions, feel free to contact us directly at any time at [email protected]
