Worldwide MADRIX NEBULA Projects

 

 

MADRIX NEBULA delivers on that promise. This output controller directly connects to a wide range of digital LEDs.

It supports over 50 ICs, each usually offering several frequencies. With regular additions to this list, you are free to choose the best available solution for any current, future, or maintenance work.

The many options to wire power, data, and integrate the device allow you to face the most challenging installs. While our world-class support team is here for you, highly detailed illustrations in the manual are there with you.

And despite the serial nature of the signal, MADRIX NEBULA makes sure that not a single one of the 1,360 individual RGB pixels lags behind.

MADRIX NEBULA empowers new designs for you to create exciting experiences.

MADRIX NEBULA

 

 

The MADRIX NEBULA directly connects to your LED pixels. This advanced SPI decoder receives control data over Ethernet network or USB and is built to provide excellent image quality.

 

SPI Converter & Direct Connection
Directly connect to a wide range of supported LEDs via two 4-pin screw terminals. A signal frequency of up to 24 MHz is available. Supply power over USB or 5 V to 24 V over a 2-pin screw terminal.

Quality Output Of 8 Universes
Each device drives up to 1,360 RGB pixels while ensuring responsive delivery of high-quality signals to each individual LED. You can choose the output protocol separately for each of the two ports.

 

Art-Net / Streaming ACN / USB
Network data is directly converted to SPI without the need for an additional interface. Reliably distribute data from any compatible software or hardware controller. In addition, simply connect to MADRIX 5 over USB.

Sync Mode & Daisy-Chain Support
MADRIX 5 and MADRIX hardware allow you to fully synchronize Art-Net data for all ports and across devices to get an optimal image on the LEDs without visual interruptions. 2 Ethernet ports allow linearly daisy-chaining several devices together.

 

Designed For DIN Rails Or Walls
Its non-conductive enclosure and standardized design for 35 mm top-hat rails make mounting quick, easy, and safe. 2 extra brackets are provided for optional wall mounting. 9 indicators quickly show the device status with the option to turn them off.

Invaluable Features
The device is ready within seconds after startup. HTP merging is automatically available for two Ethernet sources. Its firmware is upgradable. Access and change specific device settings using the built-in web configuration page.
