Product Description

The Ape Labs Can was one of the first
inventions to come out of our German office. At the size of a soda can
and built-in battery that lasts over 11 hours on max brightness, this
tiny but mighty LED fixture helped build our reputation for innovation
and build quality that’s second to none.

The Can 2.0 IP
is the most versatile product we have ever made. With at least 2x the
brightness of the previous generation Can, and even more available
accessories, possibilities are endless! Plus, the new

AmberWhite LED technology allows color for reproduction that was never
possible before. With 29 built-in color presets designed specifically
for the event industry by industry professionals, the Can 2.0 allows the
user to create incredible lighting designs with just the push of a
button. Crafted in Germany with a careful balance of totally
reengineered optics merged with the warmth of the AmberWhite LED
technology, the Can 2.0 is an incredibly flexible fixture, excellent for
uplighting, unique Fresnel effect uplighting, ambient lighting, dance
floor lighting, stage lighting, design washes, table lighting, pin
spotting, room washing, tube effects, and beyond.

Control / Operation:

Ape Labs is known to “Keep it Simple” when it comes to controlling
lights. A beginner with no instructions can typically operate an Ape
Labs fixture within seconds of picking up an ApeRemote or opening the
app. But its simplicity does not lack in features. Two of the most
famous features are “Grouping” and “MusikMode”.

Grouping allows the user to create DMX-Like shows on the fly by
grouping any number of mixed & matched Ape Labs SKUs on up to four
groups. Then being able to control groups individually or universally.

MusikMode will automatically create a music-based light show with the
press of a button. It uses proprietary technology that analyzes the
sound in the room and total number of Ape Labs fixtures to build a
constantly evolving light show. Just don’t call it “Sound Active”.

  • Wireless DMX: 4, 7, or 8 Channel Modes (W-App / Connect required, 3900ft Range)
  • Wireless KNX (W-App / Connect required, 3900ft Range)
  • Wireless Android / iOS App (W-App / Connect required, 3900ft Range)
  • Wireless Remote Control (ApeRemote required, 200ft Range)
  • Wireless range increases as more fixtures are added since all lights repeat the signal
  • Pairing is possible with ApeRemotes or W-Apps to increase number of groups or universes in the room
  • Ape Labs Connect will save settings and programs to the cloud for cross device operations or community sharing
  • Free software/firmware updates via W-App or Connect

Photometric Data:

When comparing Ape Labs LUX values to
competitor values, make sure to look at single color ratings. If only a
single LUX value is given for a fixture, it’s most likely an “All On”
rating. This means that every color is combined when rating.

The Ape
Labs Can 2.0 IP comes standard with 65° Effect Lens, but four
alternative optics are available. Below are the LUX ratings for each
color, with each beam angle, at both 1m and 2m distances.
