SWIT SL-100P Waterproof Flexible Bi-Color LED Light Announced

During our cinema5D Virtual Trade show, SWIT has just announced a new flexible and bi-color LED light mat: the SWIT SL-100P. This 100W fixture is waterproof and features a more robust and durable LED placement inside the panel, which means it should be more durable. Let’s take a closer look at it!

SWIT SL-100P Features

SWIT just introduced its second generation of LED light mats, the successors of the S-2610/2620/2630. This second-generation consists of two fixtures: the SL-100P, which is a 100W light, and the SL-150P that is 150W. So what’s new with this new lineup?

The SWIT SL-100P is still a flexible bi-color LED light, but it can now go from 2700K up to 6500K. In terms of output, SWIT claims that it can output 3500 Lux at 1 meter, with a new non-linear brightness adjustment. Also, it looks like this light is very color accurate, with an impressive CRI of 97 and TLCI of 98.

During the interview, Neal Ni also told us that they changed how the LEDs are mounted onto the light head. Indeed, individual LEDs are now no more mounted on belts but directly onto the panel itself. It makes the panel more rigid but more reliable in the long term.

The last selling point of the SWIT SL-100P is the fact that the entire kit is waterproof: the light head and the ballast are IP54 rated. Talking about the ballast:

  • On the front panel, there are two adjustment knobs – one for the brightness and one for the color temperature – and an LCD screen.
  • At the back of the unit, there is a V-Mount battery plate to power the light from an external battery.
  • A DMX In and DMX Out ports are located at the top of the ballast, next to the 5-pin XLR cord that goes to the light head/extension cord.
  • Finally, at the bottom, there is one 4-pin XLR DC 11-36V input socket and the On/Off switch.

Pricing and Availability

The SWIT SL-100P will be available in May 2020 for a price of €599.00. The standard kit includes the light head, the ballast, a mounting frame, a rotatable light stand connector, a 5-pin XLR extension cord, and the AC-DC adaptor. As an additional accessory, it is possible to buy a softbox with an egg-crate.

So… Same output, same CRI, same size as last gen and only a bit wider color temp range. Oh, and a bump from 299€ to 599€. Really? I own the 100W of their first gen and none of the issues have been addressed: control box way to bulky, cables a bit short, the so called “rotatable light stand connector” which is useless and the softbox, which could also be improved. These are rebranded FalconEyes lights -which I also own- and they are good, but mostly because they give good quality light and the convenience of a flexible light at an affordable price… At 599€ they have stopped being interesting to me.

Thanks for your suggestions and sorry for some misunderstandings. The 299€what you talked is a smaller one with 50W. 100W is much expensive than that. SWIT is planning to develop the 50W new generation flexible light too. About cable length, we have PA-UL04/PA-UL06/PA-UL08/PA-UL10 4m to 10m different extension cables as optional accessories which you can purchase as you wish.Any other advices are also very welcome. Could you help to share more detailed suggestions? Or write an Email to [email protected]? Thanks a lot!

Nope, I meant the s2610 which is 100W, exactly like the one you are showing.

And there are other stores selling the original FalconEyes for much less than 599€. In fact, if you look for the original FalconEyes (and don’t come telling me those are different lights) you can get 2 of the same size (45X60cm) daylight only + stands and accesories for less than 599€.

I don’t know about the real life performances of those lights on the subject of water and dust resistance, but it is slightly misleading to state that IP54 is equivalent to waterproof, as it only means that « Water splashing against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effect », but not that exposure to heavy rain or immersion will not damage the product.

Thanks for your explanation for normal IP54 standard.And SWIT aims always better performance and better quality. So surely SWIT waterproof products can be brought into shower and heavy rain. Below is SWIT performance under very heavy rain, which is a real-test video of SWIT patented IP54 waterproof natural-born-soft TLCI-99 panel lights: https://switeu.com/index.php?c=article&id=2220
For your reference.

Thanks for doing a water proof build. Many of us get to work outside in snow, rain, dust and non water proof lights are always a pain. I still have one kobold hmi for just this reason. Note for more output as 60w is not a lot. My smallest LEDs with 40deg lenses just barely make it for indoor stand ups. Outside the min wattage in a fresnel is 200w to be useful. Thx
