Case of use

EXALUX™ CONNECT+ can also be used as an Art-Net/DMX Nod and be remotely powered using a PoE injector.

EXALUX™ CONNECT + is simply amazing.
Everything is possible with CONNECT + such as controlling your lighting fixtures with an iPAD or an Art-Net/sACN console, controlling HUE lamps, controlling NYX lamps.

Connect your TX100N CRMX transmitters to the XLR 5 outputs and control up to 2 DMX universes in wireless mode.
The TX100N can be connected directly to the CONNECT+ or a few meters away using a specific DMX cable.

EXALUX™ CONNECT + is really versatile.
The new EXALUX™ SnapLink extension port will make it easy to add new features such as a DMX splitter or DMX recorder.

Product advantages
Dual Band reliable Wi-Fi.

EXALUX™ CONNECT+ features an high performance dual band (2.4Ghz+5Ghz) MiMo Wi-Fi Access point. This means you can be sure to have a reliable and responsive connectivity between your IPAD and your CONNECT+.
Switch the 5Ghz Wi-Fi to use your CONNECT+ with a CRMX transmitter such as the TX100N and avoid any interference, or use it if the aera really is to noisy.
In addition, EXALUX™ CONNECT+ features a mode that makes it possible to automatically select the clearer frequency band.

 


Wireless scalability.

Plug your EXALUX™ CONNECT TX100N wireless DMX transmitters to the XLR 5 outputs to create a wireless DMX link between your iPAD and your lighting fixtures.
The CONNECT TX100N can be connected directly to the CONNECT+ or a few metres away via a DMX cable to get the best connection.
Thanks to the PoD, no extra power supply is needed.

 


2 universes - 2 DMX outputs

EXALUX™ CONNECT+ pushes the limits of DMX.

CONNECT+ makes it possible to manage two DMX universes without adding additional interface, and thus, meet the needs of the most complex fixtures. In the near future, it will become possible to manage more than two DMX universes with the additional Connect interface. CONNECT+ is really clever to control your ASTERA NYX bulbs at your fingertips for example !

 


Fully compatible with the most popular Apps

With EXALUX™ CONNECT+, you can now finally get the full potential of the most populars Apps such as BlackOut and Luminair.
EXALUX™ CONNECT+ is fully compatible with all DMX applications based on the Art-Net protocol.

 


A future-oriented power supply mode.

EXALUX™ CONNECT+ can be powered via the Ethernet cable using a PoE injector. This allows the CONNECT+ to be installed in the best place without worrying about power supply constraints.
PoE mode is particularly useful if you use the CONNECT+ as an Art-Net Nod with a live hardware console.
Thanks to PoD (PowerOverDMX) technology, you will be able to power additional DMX devices by connecting them directly to the 5-pin XLR connector.

 


Philips HUE ready.

Connect your Philips HUE Bridge to one of the RJ45 ports of the EXALUX™ CONNECT+ and control your Philips HUE bulbs with your iPAD.

(The Philips HUE bridge is not supplied with the CONNECT+)

 


Upgradable, Backup-able.

EXALUX™ CONNECT+ firmware can be updated using an USB stick.

You will be able to get the latest improvements without worrying about the obsolescence of the unit when you buy it.

 


A tiny Recorder on board.

EXALUX™ CONNECT+ features a tiny DMX recorder. This makes it possible to record a small sequence from the iPad and play it back later.

 


Safety Wi-Fi.

EXALUX™ CONNECT+ supports a wide range of Wi-Fi protection such as WEP, WPA, WPA2, WMM, WMM-PS (UAPSD), WMM-SA, AES, TKIP to ensure maximum security.

In addition, the settings of the unit can be locked and saved on a USB key.
It especially convenient for rental companies who can thus easily set up units before each rental.

 


Wide range Power Modes

Thanks to its wide supply range (+5 to 28VDC), EXALUX™ CONNECT+ can be powered with a V-Lock battery, an external PSU or a PoE Injector.

EXALUX™ CONNECT+ is compliant with the new 26VDC V-Lock battery standards.
