About OrigamX LED Lighting System

The OrigamX Architectural Light System is the culmination of all of our experience, 18 months of R&D by The Black Tank along with feedback from industry leading LDs, architects and engineers.

OrigamX Light Fixtures

OrigamX is a specification grade architectural lighting system which was developed to be the smallest, lightest, high power LED light available.  The system integrates Black Tank’s patented heat sink and Hybrid Driver Technology (PWM/Current Control) along with proprietary circuitry and firmware.

The name OrigamX is a combination of Origami, the art of folding flat objects into alternate forms and structures, and “X” to highlight the technology.  The core of the OrigamX system is the light engine, which starts as a proprietary flat circuit design and is folded to into module which can be combined with precisely binned LEDs, hand selected optics (or zoom technology) and incorporated into different housing designs to match specific aesthetic and installation requirements.

OrigamX Power & Data Hub

The OrigamX Hub empowers electricians and contractors to provide power and data to remotely located OrigamX Modules for clean and simple installations in architectural, museum, and entertainment applications. Capable of powering and controlling up to 12 Modules, the OrigamX Hub utilizes a common CAT5e cable to deliver both low-voltage power and DMX signal to a Module located up to 240’ (73m) away from the Hub.

To connect OrigamX Modules to the Hub, simply plug the Hub into AC power and then connect it to a DMX control source using a 5-pin DMX cable. From there, connect up to 12 Modules to the output ports on the Hub using standard CAT5e Ethernet cables. The Hub is convection cooled, has built in electrical safety features and features integral mounting points for ease of installation.

Intense and Efficient
Ultra-compact, modular form factor uses Black Tank’s patented heat sink to provide a superior 20 watts and extended LED lifetime.

Quality of Light and Control
Patented calibration circuitry provides unique control features- including master dimmer control, up to 16khz PWM, and incredibly smooth, theatrical grade dimming to 0%.

Variety of LED Color Options
Options include RGBW (Red, Green, Blue, White), RGBA (Red, Green, Blue, Amber), High CRI Dynamic White (2700K to 6500K) or fixed CCT White.

DMX and 100% Compliant RDM
Black Tank’s theatrical grade dimming technology has been used on Broadway and in critical dynamic environments around the world.

Beam Angles or Zoom Optic
The System can be specified with different native beam angle optics and field-exchangeable diffusers or a solid-state zoom lens by LensVector which enables continuous control from 8° to 60°.

Tight LED Binning
Consistency is critical from fixture to fixture. We use a proprietary binning scheme and hand selected LEDs – ensuring the highest quality output every time.
