SYMPL bridge Node

sACN/Art-Net/e:net to DMX512/e:pix interface

The SYMPL bridge Node is similar to the Bridge8 but the key difference is that besides DMX it also supports e:cue's own protocol “e:pix “. This grants full access to Traxon fixtures via the e:pix protocol by 3rd party controller utilizing Art-Net or sACN with up to 32 Universes. Enjoy the advantages of the e:pix protocol now also with any 3rd party controller.

The SMYPL bridge Node is especially designed for projects in tough outdoor environments. Designed for this use, it comes with integrated surge protection and components that allow a very high operating temperature - the outputs are isolated up to 3,75kV.The built-in web interface enables all parameters to be easily set and managed. With a freely definable DMX value the source IP (sACN/Art-Net Sender) can be easily changed to a different device.
