LSC Control Systems prepares for NEXEN launch in Frankfurt

At the Prolight+Sound exhibition in Frankfurt LSC Control Systems will launch NEXEN – a fully featured 4-port, DINrail-mounting ethernet/DMX node

At the forthcoming Prolight+Sound exhibition in Frankfurt (25-28 April), Australian power and lighting control specialist LSC Control Systems will launch a brand-new product. Visitors to the booth will be able to view NEXEN – a fully featured 4-port, DINrail-mounting ethernet/DMX node – for the very first time.

This 5-module wide DIN unit is housed in a robust UL94-VO rated ABS plastic body, and offers 10/100MB autosensing RJ45 ethernet, four individually isolated DMX512A ports (RJ45) with configurable RDM and HTP merge per port, and optional RJ45 or hard-wired connector options. Each port can be configured as Input or Output, with RDM enabled or disabled, and configuration can be carried out via LSC’s HOUSTON X software. Powered by PoE or 9-24V DC, the unit gives clear indication of power, network connection, network speed, port mode and signal present.

Other features include compatibility with Art-Net (1, 2, 3 and 4), sACN, DMX512/DMX-512A, RDM and ArtRDM, a boot time of <1s, DHCP or static IP address modes, and remote software upgrades. With both CE (Europe) and RCM (Australia) approval, the unit also comes with LSC’s two-year parts and labour warranty.

The LSC team looks forward to welcoming customers to its booth (Hall 12.1, Stand B46) at Prolight+Sound and gaining feedback on this new product, and discussing its popular range of power, dimming, data and controls solutions.
