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.
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!
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.
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.
