BACKGROUND. The e-Node/dmx™ is a state-of-the color computer/translator that can be used to enable any third-party DMX fixture to be quickly, accurately and inexpensively supported from any leading automation or lighting control system that currently supports Converging Systems’ CS-BUS messaging format. The controller is also ideal for those hybrid applications where one or more Converging Systems ILC-100/400 color controllers (with .001% dimming capabilities) which support constant voltage LED devices and our FLLA linear lighting strips are located alongside 3rd party DMX fixtures which need to be controlled from the same automation platform. Support for 1, 3 and 4-channel DMX fixtures as well as extended programming options for greater than 4-channel support guarantees that nearly every DMX fixture in the market can be supported by virtually every automation and lighting systems in the marketplace using the e-Node/dmx™. Rich adoption of the Converging Systems’ CS-Bus command set guarantees nearly universal support for the e-Node/dmx™.
OPERATION. The e-Node™ supports Internet Protocol (IP) which can be connected to any remote system, operator or application that can address IP. All native commands, responses and error messages required to commission, control, and monitor DMX fixtures are available through the e-Node/dmx™ and can be easily managed through the supplied e-Node™ Pilot (PC) application. And if the system is connected to a Wireless (802.11b/g/n) Access Point or a wired network switch, built-in web server pages are available which can be viewed with any browser to control supported equipment though a built-in web-page User Interface.
EASY SETUP. A built-in 32-bit processor simplifies setup and enables easy upgrade to future-proof the device. The e-Node/dmx™ is designed for plug-n-play operation. Its network address (IP) is set dynamically without user intervention through a built-in DHCP server. In addition, uPnP and SDDP protocols allow seamless discovery. Network settings (for static IP addressing) can be easily changed though the e-Node™ Pilot application or through the embedded web pages viewable though any browser. Many popular automation systems have drivers available for e-Node™, so only its network address typically has to be customized!
