‘The Netron IP65 range provides reliable data distribution for any location’
Germany - Obsidian Control Systems teams from Europe and the U.S. are heading to Prolight + Sound with additions to its award-winning Netron data distribution range and invite lighting professionals to Hall 12.1, Stand B49/C49 for a closer look. Visitors will also be able to demo intuitive NX consoles, including the scalable and full-featured NX1, the lighting console that has propelled the Onyx platform's popularity to new heights.
Despite the immense amount of IP-rated entertainment technology on the market, until now, there has been no IP-rated data distribution devices to provide the required infrastructure. On display will be the world’s first line of IP65-rated data distribution products for entertainment, winner of a 2023 PLASA Award for Innovation.
The Netron IP65 range blends the proven chassis and connector technology of Elation’s IP65 Proteus range of lighting fixtures with the Netron data platform. Utilising a custom-designed die-cast body, impact resistant paint, IP ports and touch controls, the Netron IP65 range provides reliable data distribution for any location that requires dust and moisture protection. Available is a six-port RDM Splitter (RDM6 IP), six-port EtherDMX Node (EN6 IP) and an eight-port managed POE switch (NS8 IP).
Obsidian is also showing a comprehensive line of Netron products in smart form factors optimised for system integrators and fixed installations. Two new compact devices with interchangeable connection plates offer performance and flexibility. Available as RDM6D (6-port RDM Splitter) and EN6D (6-port EtherDMX Node), these rugged chassis can be DIN-Rail or wall mounted and provide data ports that can be repositioned to the top, bottom or front of the devices.
Visitors to PL+S will also be able to demo Obsidian hardware and PC systems, including the NX1, Obsidian’s scalable, full-featured lighting console. A compact, motorized fader wing, the NXP, as well as a small USB-powered control surface for ONYX, the NXK, both ideal companions to the NX1 console, will also be on display.
