Obsidian Control Systems has revealed the NETRON RP2, an intelligent 2-way DMX power relay that serves as a protective device for lighting fixtures. The RP2 helps to increase efficiency by reducing power consumption, protecting sensitive equipment, and prolonging the longevity of lighting systems.
The RP2 is configurable via an integrated OLED display and encoder with real-time status and power consumption feedback. It features optional smart power sequencing and DMX traffic detection to allow complete automation of fixture power based on DMX status. Simply turn the console on or off, and the system will follow along. An internal clock allows for independent standalone operation or automate the power outputs to specific days and times. For example, a system could be turned off every day at midnight to avoid excessive power usage. Two independent power outputs are controlled by high-current dual pole relays, ensuring complete removal of power from the circuit.
