The Node 4 is an Ethernet to DMX interface. It accepts either Artistic License's ArtNet (version 3) or PLASA’s streaming ACN (ANSI E1.31) protocol. There are four fully isolated DMX ports. Each port can be configured as either an input or as an output. All of the data connectors can be mounted on either the front or rear panel. Their location can be changed in the field to accommodate fixed or touring installations. Optional terminal block connections are available for the DMX ports.
The factory default configuration covers most applications. An easy to use control panel gives access to all network settings if a change is needed. The back lit 2 line by 20 character LCD and LED indicators give quick status feedback.
Configuration is a breeze, just choose what you want to setup by selecting the port or network adapter via the “SELECT” keys. Use the arrow keys to find the option you want to change hit “ENTER” use the arrows to change the value and “ENTER” again to save. You can use “BACK” at anytime to disregard changes and return to the above menu.
The Node 4 features a universal input power supply and a rugged enclosure. An optional rack mounting kit is available (model RK16-1). Holes are provided for easy truss mounting using a C-clamp or half-coupler.
Like all Doug Fleenor Design products, the Node 4 has a five year warranty.
