  • The ColorSource Relay

    Wireless control for tight budgets

    No longer will you need to run DMX cables to your front-of-house lighting positions, which takes hours of work, can be expensive, and looks unsightly. The ColorSource™ Relay is the answer: a low-cost and revolutionary wireless power control solution that switches power and easily transmits DMX to remote or hard-to-reach places in any space. It’s ideal for small- to medium-sized venues like community centers, university theaters, houses of worship and schools.

  • Turn on your console and you’re ready to go!

    By creating a simple and straightforward user experience, the wireless ColorSource Relay makes your show setup and teardown nearly effortless. The ColorSource Relay receives wireless DMX signals and automatically enables power switching and DMX for up to 16 amps of power. After you turn off your DMX controller – such as your lighting console – the ColorSource waits several seconds before automatically turning off all connected devices.

    The wireless ColorSource Transmitter is an essential part of the ColorSource Relay system. The ColorSource Transmitter connects to hard-wired DMX and automatically sends wireless DMX to any ColorSource Relay within a 328-foot (100-meter) range. Both the ColorSource Transmitter and Relay require minimal setup and zero programming before use. Simply take them out of the box, plug them in and your new relay system is fully operational!

    Mount it here, there… or anywhere!

    The ColorSource Relay can be easily mounted to the yoke on any ETC LED fixture with a universal mounting bracket. Other mounting options including a pipe-mount L bracket and wall-mount bracket.

    Intelligent and budget-friendly technology

    Troubleshooting is much more convenient with the ColorSource Relay. LEDs on the body of the relay indicate status, such as power, relay state, DMX presence and signal strength, giving you insight into the connectivity of your lighting system. Backed by ETC’s industry-leading customer service, you can be assured your investment will support you for years to come.

    The ColorSource Relay is also available in a hardwired version with a DMX-via-XLR5 connection.
