Product Details

Talent BL252 Multi-color 42" LED Linear Strip Lighting Bar with Bracket 252 LEDs

Add bright splashes of color to stages, parties, and dance floors. Talent Sound & Lighting's BL252 LED "batten" fixture is operable as a stand-alone RGBW (red/green/blue/white) device that runs on pre-programmed routines or sound activation, in master/slave mode with other BL252s, or via a user-supplied external DMX512 controller. In DMX mode it is configurable for 2, 7, 10, or 31 channel operation.

Up to sixteen BL252 fixtures are linkable and will auto-run without a controller. In Master/Slave mode, the first fixture will control the others to give an automatic, sound activated, synchronized light show. Quick, easy, and spectacular! The first, or master, fixture's DMX input will have nothing connected to it. Its output connects to the remaining fixtures, which will be set in slave mode automatically. For completely hands-free operation, simply set the BL252 to sound activation mode and let music control the show automatically.

The BL252's active components are housed in a slim, all-metal enclosure that features dual mounting yokes for hanging the fixture or standing it on any flat surface. IEC power in/Edison power out connectors make it easy to daisy chain electrical cables, and on-fixture programming is accomplished via pushbuttons and a digital display. Male and female 3-pin XLR connectors are furnished for DMX data input and loop-through.

Specifications: • LEDs: 252 Ultra Bright 10 mm (Red: 63, Green: 63, Blue: 63, White: 63) • DMX channels: 2/7/10/31 • Modes: Auto, sound active, DMX, master/slave • Beam angle: 40° • Control input: DMX 3-pin XLR male and female • Power input: 90~250 VAC, 50-60 Hz • Power consumption: 23 watts • Dimensions: 42.91" L x 2.64" H x 2.64" W • Weight: 4.07 lbs.

Talent BL252 Multi-color 42" LED Linear Strip Lighting Bar with Bracket 252 LEDs
Talent BL252 Multi-color 42" LED Linear Strip Lighting Bar with Bracket 252 LEDs is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good.....I recently purchased four of the Talent BL252 lightbars, my intent is to use one as a sound activated master and connect the other three via DMX as slaves so they all do the same thing.The interconnect is pretty straight-forward, that works well, but the instructions for setting up sound activation are vague at best.There are four push buttons underneath a four digit LED display, according to the user manual, they should work as such;Menu - To select the program functionsUp - To go forward in the selected functionsDown - To go backward in the selected functionsEnter - To confirm the selected functions(although, my UP button scrolls through the third digit, and my DOWN button scrolls through digits one & two)But there are no specifics as to how to set it up, it seems that there are interactions between settings that do not make sense.The "P" function for instance, I assume are the pre-programmed sequences, and it appears that you should assemble a three digit number from the listed functions.The first digit controls left to right speed 001-009the second controls right to left speed 010-019the third controls the sequence number 100-900As you can see the second will overwrite the first, or is this a typo? should the second digit be 010-090?So far as the "S" Function, it looks like the first digit 001-009 is the sensitivity,and the third digit 100-200 selects one of two modes,any idea what the difference is between the two modes?So far they seem to be good units, but PE needs to do a little better job translating the instructions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light and easyI bought two of these, and received them the day before a gig. The DMX programming was easy, although a bit different than described in the manual. There is a cool undocumented mode that turns the bar into a big VU meter! The beam is rather narrow... spreading only about 15 degrees, so make sure you have enough of them. Power conveniently links from one to the next, and they can slave, to operate together as one. Don't forget to buy 3-pin DMX cables!

Talent BL252 Multi-color 42" LED Linear Strip Lighting Bar with Bracket 252 LEDs

Can these light bars operate as slaves with either one of the other Talent par 64 lights operating as the master?

Asked by: Peteydog
the DMX assignments are different on these than the par 64 fights so it would not behave the same way. When using a fixture as a master it is best to make sure it is the same model.

Hi, I'm Mat Van Horn of Van Horn Audio, I don't remember my customer number. Do you need to have a dmx controller? I just want to set to one color at a time for uplighting. How do you do that?

Asked by: emvh
No you do not need a DMX controller for this. You can manually set the individual colors through the menu on the light.
