SYMPL pro Node

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

The SYMPL pro Node is an eight-channel DMX / e:pix and RDM interface for use with e:cue’s lighting control solution SYMPHOLIGHT. It provides eight independent DMX/RDM interfaces for eight DMX512 universes with 4096 channels. Also available as e:pix version (16384 channels). The SMYPL pro Node is especially designed for projects in tough outdoor environments. Connection to the server runs via Ethernet interface with 100 Mbit/s. The SYMPL pro 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 pro Node is a simple, reliable and easy to use interface solution for e:cue lighting control solutions with SYMPHOLIGHT.
