New Control Products from Elation Professional Ease Lighting Communication
Elation Professional is offering three new lighting control products designed to ease communication, optimise functionality and increase compatibility of intelligent lighting systems.
The 4CAST DMX BRIDGE is a compact four universe wireless device which seamlessly bridges WiFi, Art-Net, sACN, and E-FLY (Elation’s wireless DMX solution) signals to wirelessly control compatible DMX devices, an ideal solution for small production events, nightclubs, bars or any event or venue which requires hidden data cables. The 4CAST DMX BRIDGE creates a private stand-alone 2.4GHz DSSS (Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum) WiFi network, which coexists in busy RF environments alongside other wireless technologies. No existing network infrastructure is required, or it can connect to an external network. The device sends constant and reliable wireless DMX signals to compatible DMX devices via DMX-512, Art-Net, sACN, or E-FLY. Using the 4CAST iOS app installed on an iOS compatible device provides additional easy control of compatible DMX devices.
The eNode2 POE is a compact two universe Ethernet-DMX node powered over Ethernet (POE) that supports Art-Net compatible DMX control systems utilising a single RJ45 auto-switching 10/100Mbps Neutrik etherCON input and two multi-configuration 5-pin Neutrik DMX data outputs. Features include DMX bilateral conversion support, a four-button control panel, an OLED system menu display and three LED status indicators. Compact and made of lightweight die-cast aluminium, it includes a mini omega bracket for easy clamp/truss mounting. No external power supply or cord is needed.
The IPC415 is an intelligent DMX power control centre featuring four powerCON outputs (15A maximum each), four 5-pin XLR DMX outputs, one 5-pin XLR DMX input and one 5-pin XLR DMX thru-put. Power to the powerCON outputs can be scheduled to automatically switch on/offF via an internal scheduler when the DMX signal is lost or when a specific cue is triggered from a DMX console. The IPC415 can be mounted in a standard 19-inch rack space using the included rack ears, or truss mounted using a clamp (not included) attached to the M10 rigging point in the centre of the unit. It includes a multi-voltage universal auto switching power supply (100-240v) for use anywhere in the world.
