The new Nexen Portable - the latest addition to LSC’s family of Ethernet/DMX converters
Germany - Power and lighting control specialist LSC Control Systems will launch a number of new products at Prolight+Sound in Frankfurt.
LSC’s Unity, GEN-VI and APS product ranges already provide peace of mind in top-end performance and leisure venues, events and productions worldwide. Now, visitors to Prolight+Sound will be among the first to see the new GEN-X and APS-X products - each offering important new enhancements to the manufacturer’s power management systems. Also on show will be the latest Mantra 4.0software, and the new Nexen Portable, adding further to LSC’s family of protocol converters.
New at Prolight+Sound this year is the GEN-X. A new version of the GEN-VI (pronounced ‘GEN6’) advanced dimming and power distribution system, this introduces an Ethernet input alongside the DMX, allowing for direct control via sACN and Art-Net. GEN-X offers all the features and advantages of the GEN-VI, including LSC’s TruPower, which lets the user configure any output in any combination to be an 8-bit or 16-bit dimmer or a direct power relay channel. This enables the seamless dimming of conventional lamps, or the powering of moving lights, LED fixtures, video screens or audio power amplifiers - or any equipment needing controlled power distribution.
At the same time, bringing Ethernet functionality to the inputs of the APS (Advanced Power System), will be the APS-X. Providing an elegant solution to the challenges of powering large numbers of LED screen panels, audio amplifiers or moving lights, the APS sequentially switches the outputs and controls inrush currents, earth leakages and overloads.
New to LSC’s Mantra Lite lighting control system is the latest software version,Mantra 4.0. This release introduces various enhancements including improved colour mixing options for 7+ colour LED systems, full support for multi-intensity fixtures, direct communication with LSC’s Houston-X monitoring and remote configuration tool (allowing all remote configuration and firmware updates over ethernet without the use of a third-party node) and a new underlying operating system allowing for future expansion and faster boot times.
Finally, the new Nexen Portable is the latest addition to LSC’s Nexen family - the latest range of Ethernet/DMX converters designed for the most reliable conversion of entertainment industry protocols - including Art-Net, sACN, DMX512-A, RDM and ArtRdm.
At the same time, LSC announces the availability of the new Unity 72-way cabinet. This latest addition to the Unity product line joins the currently available 48-way and 96-way options, offering further flexibility for high-performance dimming and power switching applications. Although this particular model will not be physically present on the booth, visitors are invited to discuss its possibilities with LSC’s representatives.
