DataTrack Backbone brings the ease and flexibility of our DataTrack track lighting solution to high-bay applications that require the performance of Source Four and ColorSource fixtures. The Backbone is a strong H-shaped aluminum extrusion to which DataTrack is mounted on the underside. The top portion allows rigid surface mounting to building structures on spans up to 10 feet with standard Unistrut hardware. The resulting structural stability allows for full-sized theatrical fixtures to be installed on the backbone using a simple hanging clamp and track adapter with power and data pigtails, while track fixtures are also supported as usual. Designers can now have the best of both worlds: equipment with minimum visual impact that delivers maximum light.
DataTrack Backbone’s sleek design still blends effortlessly into museums or other spaces where clean design is a must, offering low-profile power and data distribution. And of course, DataTrack Backbone contains all the advantages of the original DataTrack. The track features two separate neutrals that can both be dimmed circuits, two hot circuits, or one of each. DMX/RDM distribution is handled inside the track, with one universe per section.
DataTrack Backbone comes in 4-, 8-, and 12-foot sections, and can also be cut to any custom length in the field. It is available in standard black, white, or silver. An array of coupler housings allow for easier wiring of power and data feeds into DataTrack installed in Backbone. The rigid support of Backbone also stabilizes the connection between sections of DataTrack to make DMX pass-through even more reliable.
Whatever the application, DataTrack Backbone brings additional strength and style to your DataTrack system.
