Pica Cube™ WNC

Designed by The Black Tank

Good things come in small packages and Pica Cube is no exception. Using high quality LED emitters Pica Cube WNC outputs more than 1005 lumens. The WNC model designed by The Black Tank offers a tunable color space of 2700K to 6500K. The unique mix of warm, neutral and cool LEDs ensure gorgeous white light with excellent color rendering across all color temperatures. Pica's compact size and extremely light weight make it perfect for use in tight spaces in Architectural, Retail and Theatrical environments. Mount Pica anywhere with the versatile mounting bracket, or attach it to any track system for the ultimate flexible lighting configuration.

Bold & Bright

With a native 13° beam spread, Pica Cube WNC packs a big punch from a compact light! To provide the control needed by most designers, every Pica Cube comes complete with a set of lenses in 20°, 40° and 60° beam spreads. Asymmetrical spread lenses and other beam-shaping hardware are also available as accessories.

Innovative Compact Design

Very little space is wasted in the elegant, rugged design of the Pica Cube. Our unique, patented heat management system allows up to 24 watts of LEDs to be packed into a tiny 2.5 x 3.5 inch cube. Most popular lights on the market that are of similar size with significantly lower output or require twice the size to achieve similar output! The Pica Cube has been engineered to be durable, reliable and affordable without sacrificing the qualities expected by demanding lighting professionals.

Sophisticated yet Simple

Ready for the most demanding professional environments, the Pica Cube can be powered by two means: a power adapter that converts AC Mains power to 12VDC, or our Portal box which can supply power+data via Cat5 cable to up to 4 Pica Cubes. A full universe of high speed DMX512 in 8-bit or 16-bit resolution allows for completely flicker-free dimming from your console. An optional "Filament Mode" can be set to mimic the fade of an incandescent lamp going to black. For use without DMX, an intuitive rear control panel allows the user to dial in brightness and color temperature settings within seconds.

Versatile and Modular

Pica Cube's compact size and light weight make it perfect for building into scenery or soffits or mounting as a track light. A novel bracket design allows Pica Cubes to be easily hung with c-clamps, configured in stacked arrays, converted to canopy mounts and retrofit with track hanging adapters - or virtually anything an installer requires.
