The P-2 is an extremeley bright and powerful RGBW wash light, built in a lightweight and compact construction. Maintaining the SGM design philosophy, the P-2 shares some of the key features of the P-5, like color calibration, interchangeable lenses, smooth seamless beam projection, low power consumption, and RMX DMX addressing. The P-2 further offers the benefits of three-segment pixel mapping control. Because of its efficiency, small size, and easy rigging options, the P-2 is a must-have wash for any rental company, touring production, corporate event, or temporary installation.
The P-2 features 18 high-power 10W RGBW LEDs, divided into three vertical segments. It includes 2000K - 10000K linear CTC and accurate color calibration to match the same colors and smooth dimming available in the P, Q and i series. The LEDs expected lifetime is 50,000 hours.
Optics and optional barndoors
Flexibility is the optimum word to define the P-2's performance, since it allows the user to modify the beam angle with three different interchangeable lens options. While the 43" lens kit delivers an almost 1:1 performance, the 21? kit offers a more controllable coverage for medium throws. The 15? lens kit concentrates all the light output in one point to create a powerful spot over long distances. Optional 4-way and 8-way barndoors add even more control and accuracy.
The P-2 is one of the most efficient wash lights ever manufactured by SGM. With 37 lumens per watt (after lens), it has been engineered to obtain an impressive performance with an extremely low power consumption. The P-2 only requires 170W in typical use, outperforming any other wash lights in its class.
Three individually controllable LED segments are selectable in the P-2. DMX menu choices allow users to control Red, Green, Blue, and White LEDs for each vertical segment independently, both in 8bit and 16bit modes. This is a very interesting feature making it possible to operate the P-2 for pixel mapping applications, where accurate performance and bright pixels are needed.
The durable IP65-rating of the P-2 luminaire ensures that the fixture is kept free from externally induced particles and liquids on internal optics and light sources, such as smoke fluid, dust, dirt, airborne pollution, and humidity. It is ideal for outdoor applications, while being practically maintenance-free, makes it a sustainable and long-lasting choice for both outdoor as well as indoor events and installations.
The internal built-in dehumidifier protects this fixture from moisture, pollution and any other factors that can generate corrosion. The patented SGM dehumidification not only removes humidity but also prevents oxidation and condensation, while a gore-tex membrane equalizes internal pressure to prevent leaks.
This powerful wash delivers 8727 verified lumen as maximum output with the 43? lens. However, one of the big advantages of the P-2 is the impressive brightness in colors. It outputs 2526 lumens in Red, 2709 lumens in Green and 715 lumens in Blue: a breathtaking amount of light, generated with less than 170W.
To achieve optimum performance of the LEDs at all times, this bright and accurate luminaire is optimized to manage heat impact through SGM?s unique thermal management technology. The technology consists of a uniquely designed body and heat sink, which ensures optimal cooling of the LED chips. Additionally, the special aluminum alloy and surface treatment ensures maximum heat dispersion while the fan-assisted cooling ensures optimal performance at any time and under any conditions (such as variable temperatures, limited airflows, confined installation spaces, etc.). Like all SGM LED products, the P-2 consists of SGM?s superior thermal management technology and tested under extreme hot and cold conditions, which ensures that the LEDs always operate within safe parameters.
The P-2 may be rigged by using the included easy-fit omega bracket with ? turn fasteners. It also includes a base floor stand to increase stability, while allowing users to easily access the omega locking points. Since the fixtur is fully RDM compatible, the P-2 is ideal for installation in non-accessible locations.

Inverse Square Law: The quantity of light is inversely proportional to the square of its distance, i.e., illumination (fc) = Intensity (cd) / Distance2 (ft2). Say a light is placed 1 foot away from the subject. If the distance is doubled to two feet, the square of its distance is (22) or 2 x 2 = 4. The inverse of 4 is 1/4. Therefore, the quantity of light falling on the subject from 2 feet will be 1/4 the amount of light falling on the subject from the original 1 foot. If the light is moved to a distance of 8 feet, the square of its distance is (82) or 8 x 8 = 64. The inverse of 64 is 1/64. The quantity of light on the subject from 8 feet will be 1/64 the amount of light that falls on the subject from 1 foot away. Each time you roughly increase the distance incrementally, you open up your aperture two, three, four stops, etc., to compensate for the light falloff.

Leko: A commonly used term for an ellipsoidal spotlight. Named after its inventors Joseph Levy and Edward Kook, the names Leko and Lekolite are trademarked by Strand Lighting Corporation.
Lens: A transparent material, usually glass, shaped to bend light rays as they pass through it. Colored lenses can also be used as color media.
Light: Illumination the aspect of radiant energy of which a human observer is aware through a visual sense. Its electromagnetic radiation has a wavelength longer than ultraviolet radiation but shorter than infrared radiation, i.e., approximately 380mm (violet) to 750mm (red). A term that is often used interchangeably with light source.
Light Distribution: The way in which illumination of any color or quantity is spread over a particular background.
Lighting Ratio: The percentage of key light to fill light. Optimum and maximum lighting ratios depend upon subject matter, mood, media and type of reproduction, as well as personal tastes. In television a timid ratio is 2:1 (twice as much key as fill), a dramatic one, 8:1 (eight times as much key as fill, popular for film-noir look) a maximum one, about 16:1. Also called Brightness Ratio.
