SYMPL essential Node

The new smart DMX controller for state-of-the-art lighting control projects has been specifically designed with tough outdoor environments in mind.

The SYMPL essential Node is an eight-channel DMX interface for use with e:cue’s lighting control solution SYMPHOLIGHT. It provides eight independent DMX interfaces for eight DMX512 universes with 4096 channels. The SMYPL essential Node is especially designed for projects in tough outdoor environments. Connection to the server runs via Ethernet interface with 100 Mbit/s. The SYMPL essential Node can be powered by an external power supply or via Power-over-Ethernet. It is easily mounted on standard 35 mm DIN rails, or with a key hole in the housing base on walls or on any stable vertical surface. The SYMPL essential Node is a simple, reliable and easy to use interface solution for e:cue lighting control solutions with SYMPHOLIGHT.
