Obsidian Control Systems Introduces NETRON EP2 EtherDMX Node

by | Lighting, News, Production

Obsidian Control Systems has announced the NETRON EP2 Node, the newest addition to its expanding NETRON range of data distribution devices that’s designed to serve as an Ethernet-to-DMX gateway at an affordable price.

Suited for the installation of distributed DMX Universes in venues, the universal housing of the EP2 provides mounting in 2-Gang boxes (US) as well as European Standard 50mm round boxes in the same compact design. The EP2 ships with a full metal back box and M10 and M12 truss mount bolt attachment points included, as well as a universal USB-C power supply.

In addition, it offers two 5-pin DMX/RDM optically isolated ports, each port bidirectional for DMX Input and Output. It is designed to be configured through either the 1.3-inch OLED display and encoder or the integrated web menu system.

POE or USB-C powered, the EP2 includes factory and user presets for “plug-and-play” setups, and follows the same menu structure as existing NETRON nodes in the market. It also unlocks the ONYX Nova license, allowing up to four Universes of DMX output.

The EP2 is part of the Obsidian Control Systems NETRON data distribution range that encompasses Ethernet to DMX gateway, DMX splitter and DMX/RDM splitter platforms. NETRON devices support Art-Net, sACN, DMX-512 and RDM protocols.
