Godox Knowled M600D - Powerful Daylight COB Light Announced

Godox Knowled M600D is a new powerful COB LED light with 5600K dimmable flicker-free output of up to 15,700 lux at 3m (9.8′). Including four effects, DMX and Bluetooth remote control, V-Mount or DC power, and Bowens S-type mount the fixture can be pre-ordered for $1,499 now. Godox also offers a new FLS10 Fresnel lens for $199 to focus the output to 10-35°.

The Chinese company Godox has a variety of COB lights in its lineup already. Earlier this year, they announced the Godox SZ150R zoomable RGB light as well as SL100D and SL100Bi lights. With the current announcement, Godox aims to provide a powerful output fixture for bright environments – Godox Knowled M600D. Let’s take a look at its features and specs.

Godox Knowled M600D

As the letter D in its name implies, the Godox Knowled M600D only offers “daylight” balanced output of 5600K. Instead of delivering bi-color options, Godox focused on designing a high-output flicker-free light. According to Godox, the M600D outputs 15,700 Lux (1458.5 fc) at 3m (9.8′).

When it comes to color accuracy, Godox claims the M600D offers CRI 96 and TLCI 97. Dimming is available from 0 to 100% continuously (in 0.1 to 10% increments). According to Godox, optional scientific dimming curves for Linear, S-curve, Exp, and Log provide output behaviors catered to diversified settings and applications.

There are four special effects included – flash, lighting, TV, and broken bulb. Because of all that power, the light has an active cooling system with a built-in fan. Godox claims, however, that the fan remains silent most of the time. Remote operation is available via DMX or Bluetooth which offers up to 60m (196.9′) range. There are 32 wireless channels (16 groups).

The ballast is connected with the lamp head via a proprietary connecting cable. It is quite large and has two V-Mount battery plates on each side as well as a controlling interface with a knob, buttons, and a display on top. The AC and DC power supplies and runs on 100-240 VAC power for worldwide use.

The fixture weighs 4.5kg (9.9 lb) and its dimensions are 243 x 153 x 447mm (9.6 x 6.0 x 17.6″). The M600D has a Bowens S-type mount for various accessories such as reflectors, projector mounts, softboxes, etc. The bracket-type yoke enables tilting and has a 5/8″ receiver.

Godox also introduced the FLS10 Fresnel to go with the light. This optional fresnel amplifies the light output to 46,400 lux at 3m (9.8′) and lets users adjust the beam angle from 10° spot to 35° flood.
