Diva-Lite 31 LED DMX



Kino Flo’s newly redesigned Diva-Lite 31 is another addition to the Diva-lite family and continues to be one of our most
popular Interview and small studio fixture. Introduced in April at NAB 2018, its new form factor fits into smaller travel case
to save space for location work. It also provides a smaller profile for studios that have low ceilings. The Diva-Lite 31 comes as center mount with a carry handle or yoke mount option. Both versions feature four corner bumpers that can be used to hang from rope or wire. A honeycomb Louver (90° or 60°) is held in place with Velcro and gives direction to the light or can be
easily removed to give broad coverage over the set. For those that like the plastic fixture shell, Diva-Lite 30 is also available.

The Diva-Lite 31’s “All in One” design includes standard DMX in/out ports for cable as well as wireless DMX connectivity
(Lumen Radio®). Additional specifications include universal AC voltage input 100-240vac (1.25 Amps at 120vac) as well as
a 3-Pin XLR for 24vdc operation (6.25A).

Kino Flo’s Diva-lite 31 LED include 4 menu options, one white, two colors and FX menu. The White menu features include Dimming, Kelvin and Green/Magenta control channels. Dimming range is from .02 to 100 percent without introducing
any flicker and can be adjusted in coarse or fine mode by pressing the control knob in/out. The Kelvin range is tunable from 2700K tungsten to 6500K daylight. The Green/Magenta control can be scaled from 0 to 100, where 25 = ¼ correction,
50 = ½ correction and 100 = full correction.



In the Gels/Hue menu, the Kelvin range is extended to 2500K Kelvin to 9900K daylight and a fourth channel is
called Gel. The Gel channel includes Kino Flo presets such as blue & green screen, sodium vapor, mercury vapor as well as
over 100 well-known lighting gels. The gel function can be applied to any Kelvin temperature and by pushing the control knob
in/out, the gel will be applied or removed. A fifth channel called Hue Angle (Hue) and sixth channel Saturation (Sat) are
also included in the gel menu. These two channels behave similar to a traditional color wheel, where white light is in the center
and Hue Angle determines the color along a 360-degree range and Saturation determines how much color is applied. With the
Hue Angle and Saturation it is possible to create over 2 million color combinations!

The RGB color menu gives individual control of red, green and blue LED’s. The RGB mode is a great way to work with apps with
predetermined RGB presets or color wheels. RGB menu is also a great feature to dial in specific gel RGB values or when controlling colors from a DMX desk.

The FX (Effects) menu introduced on June 1, 2018 provides access to popular effects such as Candle, Fire, TV, Police, Lightning, Paparazzi, Pulse and Scroll. When on the desired effect, there are several pre-sets as well as control parameters that can be altered. For example, in the Lightning effect there is a “Storm” and “Frankenstein” preset, but it is possible to change Rate to provide additional variation.

The Diva-Lite LED DMX includes a built-in Lumen Radio receiver and can be operated wirelessly with a Lumen Radio transmitter
(sold separately).  Wireless is an option to using DMX cables.  For more information on Lumen Radio Receiver/Transmitter, see www.LumenRadio.com.

   
 

Fixture Accessories

 


Honeycomb Louvers (LVR-SL390-P & LVR-SL360-P) – The spread of the light is controlled by means of thin wall honeycomb louvers.  The advantage of these louvers is the minimal loss
of light.  The Diva-Lite LED fixtures include a 90° louver.  A 60° louver is also available as an accessory.  They are lightweight and are held to the fixture with Velcro fasteners.

   
 

The SnapBag accessory (DFS-FS31-S) is a lightweight fabric tailor-made for the Diva-Lite LED. It slips over the fixture and is attached with straps.  The reflective material intensifies the soft light.  The removable grid cloth attaches to the inside with Velcro.

       
 

The SnapGrid accessory (LVR-FS340-S) is constructed of pre-stretched fireproof fabric with a built-in stainless steel frame.  It unfolds and snaps into place.  It can only be used with the corresponding SnapBag and is attached with Velcro.  It is not designed to be used by itself.

 
                                 

Block/KF21 Battery

   
 
                 BAT-KF21                                           BAT-MM1 Mafer Mount
   
 

The KF21 battery can power 28.8V (20-34VDC) applications.  Run time for the Diva-Lite 21/31/41 LED is approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes at full brightness.  When fixtures are dimmed, the battery will last longer. 

Charge time is only 1.5 hours versus Lithium batteries that take approximately 4 hours to fully charge.  Unlike lithium batteries, the Kino Flo/BlockBattery is also travel friendly with no travel restrictions. BlockBattery Travel Documentation.

The Kino Flo/BlockBattery system includes a Mafer Mount, BAT-MM1, with 28.8V output with 3-Pin xlr, 3ft.  The battery slides onto the mount and mounts onto a Mafer clamp.

 

 

 

The 3-pin xlr cable connects to the Diva-Lite 31 LED fixture.

For more information, see Battery.


 

Cases

   
 


The clamshell case (KAS-DL31-C) is recommended for transport in small vehicles or local production trucks. It holds one Diva-Lite 31 LED, a reverse stand and a spare louver.

   
 

Diva-Lite LED Advantages

   
 

Energy Efficiency

The Diva-Lite 31 LED DMX operates on universal AC power or battery power and needs only 1.25A at 120VAC or 6.25A at 24VDC . 
The Diva-Lite LED’s cost savings from low energy and long LED life continues Kino Flo’s reputation as an environmentally friendly lighting company.

 

Long LED Life

LED’s are well known as being energy efficient, lasting for thousands of hours.  While Kino Flo’s Diva-Lite LED also has a long LED life,
the Diva-Lite LED’s unique design will maintain its color-correct color temperature.

 

True Match® Color-Correct

As with all Kino Flo products, the Diva-Lite LED has been specially formulated to match the spectral distribution curves of today’s HD film and video equipment.  The Diva-Lite LED has a high color rendering index of CRI 95.  Even while dimming, the fixture is flicker-free and without color shift.

 

Heat Management Design

For Kino Flo, heat management is a critical design element of fixture design.  The physical heat or buildup heat within the LED fixture will directly influence the color temperature, lumen performance and life of an LED. 

The Diva-Lite LED’s unique design operates coolly, consumes very low energy (1.25A, 120VAC) and is properly ventilated to maintain a stable color temperature.

A well maintained temperature extends the lumen maintenance, color temperature and life of an LED. 

 

Cost Savings

Cost savings cover a broad range of concerns:

  • Lower energy costs
  • Less heat so lower air conditioning expenses

 

Energy Savings Calculations

With the push for reducing fossil fuel consumption, TV studios are looking at cooler more efficient lighting systems to reduce the costs and save energy.  Part of this process involves generating energy values to determine savings.  One of the most important values is Btu/kWh.

 

British Thermal Units per Kilowatt Hour

Any light generates a percentage of usable light and the rest in heat.  For example, a standard incandescent light bulb converts only 11 percent of its electrical input into visible light, while the rest is dissipated directly as heat.  There are energy costs involved in cooling the studio environment.  The measure of Btu/kWh is a means of calculating the thermal loads related to operating lighting.

Use the following information to calculate Btu/kWh Watts to Btu:

1 kWh = 3413 Btu/Hr
1 Watt = 3.413 Btu/Hr
3.413 Btu per Watt-hour
