Also, latest technical developments and requirements have to be met.
The MA 8Port Node, MA 4Port Node,MA 4Port Node WM (Wall Mount), MA 2Port Node, MA 2Port Node WM (Wall Mount) set an additional benchmark in MA Lighting’s networking product range as they feature the 1Gbit/s bandwidth capability. They allow the conversion of Ethernet data into DMX or vice versa and fit perfectly into the grandMA2 system and its MA-Net2 protocol, which is based on this high speed to ensure maximum performance. Optimised for touring and installation purposes, all products have a rugged steel housing for a long life even under harsh conditions. The Nodes offer a menu button, a USB connector and a 2″ colour TFT as well as LEDs displaying the current status. All of these ensure a comfortable operation. The MA xPort Nodes are fully configurable from the grandMA2 consoles or from grandMA2 onPC. To achieve the highest flexibility, each DMX port can be individually configured as DMX in or DMX out.
The MA 2Port Node WM (Wall Mount) is the perfect solution for converting a small amount of DMX universes at the same location where no additional power supply is available. The MA 2Port Node WM is powered via PoE (Power over Ethernet) and therefore does not need additional power supply. As a standard the MA 2Port Node WM (Wall Mount) will be delivered with a wall-mount plate with inside screws. Also available as accessory there is a wall-mount plate with outside screw-mounts and a rigging-adapter plate. The two DMX outputs are located at the bottom of the unit. The RJ45 connector for Ethernet connections is located inside the unit, but can be re-located for the rigging-version to the outside.
