  • Ethernet input compatible with industry standard sACN (E1.31) and Art-net DMX-over-ethernet protocols
  • Onboard E1.31 to DMX512 output capability (no Art-Net to DMX)
  • Supports both Multicast and Unicast addressing
  • Supports IGMP allowing highly efficient data packet routing in large Multicast networks with many hundreds of universes
  • High refresh rates


  • Individually fused outputs and logic circuitry
  • Wide range voltage input
  • High current capacity outputs
  • Configuration free power connection

  • High power TVS (600W transient peak) providing external ESD protection on DMX interface
  • Remote temperature and voltage bank monitoring
  • Firmware upgradable remotely over the ethernet network via the easy-to-use ‘Advatek Assistant’ utility
  • Simple network setup and fast configuration via powerful Assistant utility that shows all controllers on the network at once
  • Advanced configuration options including start universe, start channel, null pixels, zig-zag, reverse pixels, RGB *color order, pixel grouping, brightness control and more
  • Built-in hardware test pattern modes
  • Individual outputs with each connector supplying power and data over a single cable
  • Easy to use pluggable screw terminal connectors on all channel outputs and data interfaces
  • Currently supports PixLite Bright™ series (12-bit) and PixLite Pro™ series (16-bit) pixel strings in addition to numerous other pixel protocols (TLS3001, SM16716, LPD6803, WS2801, WS2811/12/12B/APA104, TM180x, MBI6020, INK1003, APA102. Note: one pixel type at a time per controller.)
  • Features 1 standard DMX512 universe output (acting as a single E1.31 to DMX bridge) via a dedicated screw terminal connector, in addition to the 16 universes of pixel output
  • Single power input rated at 32A
  • 4 individual outputs with each output protected by 5A mini blade fuse (can be changed up to 7.5A)
  • Receives up to 16 universes of Artnet data and up to 17 universes of E1.31 data
  • 4 layer PCB with high copper density
  • Total output capacity of 2,720 pixels (max 680 per output)
