The Astera AX5 Octo Set with Charging Plate and Road Case is an RGBAW LED fixture with 3 x LED emitters and a 13° beam spread. The RGBA fixture supports a color temperature range of 2480 to 7100K when controlled via the app or DMX, and features a CRI rating of up to 92. In addition, the fixture is dimmable from 100 to 0% brightness in any mode. The Astera AX5 Octo Set with Charging Plate and Road Case has an integrated lithium-ion battery, which can run the fixture for up to 20 hours on a full charge, while requiring up to 7 hours to charge.

As you would expect with an RGBAW fixture, it supports a variety of effects, including color, fire, strobe (flash), and LEE gel color matching. The fixture can be controlled via wired or wireless DMX (supports LumenRadio) as well as via the AsteraApp, or an optional IR remote. The light features a removable yoke, and an integrated pop-out Kickstand. The bracket features a 3/8" threaded hole for attaching mounting options.

Remote Control

The AX5 can be controlled remotely with an optional ARC1 IR remote controller, or by the AsteraApp for iOS or Android via Bluetooth (requires optional AsteraBox) as well as wired or wireless DMX. For wireless DMX, the fixture is compatible with all LumenRadio CRMX transmitters as well as W-DMX, G2, G3, G4, and G4S transmitters (G4 and G4S is only supported in 2.4 GHz mode). You can also use an Astera ART3 Wireless DMX Transmitter to send DMX in the UHF frequency band, although CRMX is the recommended method.

Status Screen

An integrated status screen displays the fixture's settings and allows you to navigate the menu system for local control or for use with remotes.

Flicker Control

The fixture uses PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) for dimming, and it has a default refresh rate of 599.4 Hz. The PWM rate is adjustable between 200 and 1205 Hz to match different shooting frame rates.

You can charge the AX5 using an optional powerCON AC cable or a charging case. Please note the fixture is designed to be charged when it is powered down

Shipping Mode

The AX5 is set to a special shipping mode that allows it to be stored for a long time without damaging the battery. When using an AX5 for the first time, connect it to an AC power for a few seconds to exit the shipping mode.

The fixture sports a native 13° beam spread. The included FLOOD filter mounts on the front and spreads the beam out to 32°, while the included WALLWASH filter will project a beam with a 17° by 46° beam angle.
