Madrix LUNA 8 Port Art-Net & USB Node

Madrix Logo

Manufactured by Madrix in Germany the LUNA is a high quality 8 port Art-Net node / USB DMX interface.

The MADRIX LUNA is unique in being both a professional grade 8 Port Art-Net Node and a USB 8 Universe DMX interface in one unit. Designed to work with Madrix to unlock the full power of Art-Net the LUNA converts Art-Net data from Ethernet network to DMX512. The Luna also fully complies with the Art-Net standard so will work perfectly in any Art-Net application with any DMX Console, Software or Hardware.

Manufactured in a 1U 19″ rack mount enclosure the LUNA is equally at home on in a fixed install, touring show or as part of Hire stock. With 8 DMX output ports and 1 DMX input port the LUNA is the heart of the show either on its own or as part of a much larger installation. Although the LUNA is packed with powerful features it can be installed and configured very quickly.

When coupled with Madrix software the Luna uses a special Madrix Sync mode to synchronise the Art-Net data over all 8 ports and even over multiple devices to get the optimum data throughput. This ensures that your Madrix show looks as good as possible with no visual disturbances.

On the front panel are 5 indicators quickly indicating power and correct operation. An easy to use Web Interface is provided to give access to the full configuration settings.
