LSC Nexus 5 port DMX/ethernet converter

The NEXUS range is the latest addition to LSC's Data Distribution products and offers conversion between DMX512 signals and Ethernet and currently supports both the Artnet and Streaming ACN (SACN) protocols.

Much more than your standard converter, the NEXUS range of both 1 and 5 port interfaces allows the user many other options such as a protocol conversion tool for today’s demanding shows.

Using the free NexLan software, any NEXUS DMX port can be configured to operate in a number of modes such as:

  • Standard DMX512 output from a selected Artnet or SACN Universe
  • HTP merge of two selected Artnet or SACN Universes.
  • LTP merge of two selected Artnet or SACN Universes.
  • Select two universes and merge individual slots using HTP or LTP. Softpatching is also possible.
  • Assigned to a Primary and a Secondary Universe. Autoswitches from Primary to Secondary on loss of the Primary Universe.
  • Resend - any merged port can be resent as a new Artnet/SACN Universe.
  • DMX input - send a standard DMX port to an Artnet/SACN Universe.
  • DMX Backup - a normal input that is only sent if the selected Universe is not present.

This flexibility of configuration permits some very useful functionality such as:

  • A simple ArtNet/SACN to DMX512 converter.
  • Back-up switch for multiple Lighting Controllers.
  • a DMX512 to ArtNet/SACN converter.
  • DMX512 Splitter.
  • DMX512 Backup.
  • an ArtNet Backup.
