Mole-Richardson TweenieLED Tungsten Overview

This is a tungsten-balanced Mole-Richardson TweenieLED 100w 4.5" Fresnel with DMX. Fresnels have been a staple in Hollywood since 1936 and little has changed except the use of better materials with more precise construction techniques.

While nobody had a problem with the Fresnel's quality of light, heat and electrical draw were another story. It's why you see so many movie people walking around the set with heat-resistant gloves. And of course frying the talent could bring the production to a screeching halt. Then there are scrims - the only way to knock down the output without changing the color temperature.

Enter the MoleLED Fresnel. Apart from the black powder-coated finish, the head looks and performs the same as a legacy light allowing you to swap a standard light for TweenieLED light or mix them. in fact there a retro-fit kit available to convert your old style light to an LED.

On-board local 100-10% dimming means you'll probably be restricting your scrimming to half-scrims, saving you a lot of ladder climbing. Besides comfort, you'll be saving on air-conditioning and head running costs in the studio. The Tweenie LED's maximum draw is 0.5-1.0A as compared to the legacy lamp's 1.7A, up to an 80% reduction in energy consumption. This means that you can run double the amount of LEDs as legacy lights without raising the temperature. Let's also consider the cost and downtime of re-lamping. LEDs last about 50,000 hours and are virtually maintenance-free.

If you're not sold already, the control features will close the deal. Not only does the TweenieLED have on-board local dimming but it's also DMX 512 compatible, so you can remote control 1 or 100 MoleLEDs from a central console by simply daisy-chaining them together.

The 90-250 VAC TweenieLED has a 4.5" lens, passive cooling and aluminum alloy and steel construction. It has 22 to 56 degree spot-to-flood variation and a 5/8" receiver for standard Baby pin. The #18 AWG power cable is 25' long and ends in a NEMA 5-15 Edison (US) plug.


  • An 80% reduction in energy consumption
  • Flicker-free dimming with little to no color shift.
  • No need for external dimming systems.
  • No direct IR or radiant heat from Fresnel
  • Technology

    MoleLED Fresnels are powered by a proprietary Mole-Richardson Quantum Dot chip on-board LED module. The benefit of QD LED technology is the ability to specifically tune the visible wavelength at the nano scale which, in this case, allows for precise adjustment of the red spectrum without impacting the overall light output of the LED. This Patent Pending LED board represents the first time QD LED's are being used in the film, television and broadcast industries

    The following items are listed as included with the Mole-Richardson TweenieLED 100W 4.5 Fresnel (Daylight), B&amp;H # MOTLD, under the In The Box section under the Overview on our website:In the Box Mole-Richardson TweenieLED 100W 4.5 Fresnel (Daylight) Attached Power Cable (25') Limited 1-Year WarrantyBarndoors are not included; however, they are listed under the Accessories tab on our website as a separate purchasable accessory. The Mole-Richardson 4-Way 4-Leaf Barndoor for 100W TweenieLED Fresnel, B&amp;H # MOBDTL, would be the correct barndoors for use with the Mole-Richardson TweenieLED 100W 4.5 Fresnel (Daylight).
