The new devices are scheduled to hit the market later this year
UK - The Netron EN6 IP, one of three devices in Obsidian’s new IP65 range of signal distribution, won a PLASA Award for Innovation at the 2023 exhibition.
The PLASA Award judges recognised the EN6 IP as a “device that brings lighting control distribution and format conversion to the outdoors at an accessible price point.”
"I'm incredibly proud of our team's tireless work and relentless pursuit of innovation as we continue to push the boundaries in entertainment controls,” stated Matthias Hinrichs, product manager at Obsidian Control Systems and Elation Professional. “The Netron EN6 IP, along with the entire IP65 range, represents a significant step forward in addressing the needs of the entertainment industry. A rugged IP-rated lighting data node that aligns with our leading Proteus range has been truly missing from the market and now lighting professionals can operate with greater confidence in any environment."
Easy to configure via display, web interface or the Netron CLU app through simple presets or when required a detailed configuration of features, the EN6 IP offers up to six universes with full support for the industry-standard streaming sACN and Art-Net protocols. It even features up to 99 internal cues that can be set up to play in the event of data loss, ensuring audience and performer safety, or providing a dedicated scene even when the control system is offline.
A removable metal cover protects the display from impact, and the boxes are easily stackable via a simple and elegant internal magnetic alignment. M10 or M12 clamp positions round out the chassis, and daisy chaining of power and gigabit Ethernet ensures fast and efficient deployment in the field. For added convenience, the EN 6IP can be powered by POE Ethernet.
