The MADRIX PLEXUS is a brand new hardware interface from the makers of the LED lighting control software MADRIX. The USB 2.0 DMX512 interface and Art-Net node is now available here at the Steinigke shop.

The next-generation live or stand-alone interface

The MADRIX® brand brings professional LED lighting control solutions based on innovative software and hardware to the lighting market. The new MADRIX PLEXUS expands the MADRIX product range of hardware interfaces, which already includes the highly successful MADRIX NEO and the USBone.

The PLEXUS is mainly a USB 2.0 DMX512 interface. It controls up to 1024 DMX channels per device via DMX512 or Art-Net and works as a stand-alone interface or live controller. It is the first interface to offer stand-alone playback of MADRIX light shows and effects. 2x DMX-IN/OUT ports, 1x Ethernet port, 1x Extension port, 1x USB port, and the SD-Card slot make this new device more versatile than any before it.

Made in Germany and one step beyond

But there is a lot more. Made in Germany there has been a strong focus during development on high quality and innovative features. The device does not only come with a precision aluminum enclosure and NEUTRIK plugs, but also a Kensington security slot, a large backlit 3″ LC graphics display and 5 accessible control buttons–all useful features the users will surely benefit from. This also includes features such as the integrated DMX Monitor and DMX Tester.

The PLEXUS hardware and MADRIX software form a powerful bundle. MADRIX allows users to create complex lighting scenes without much difficulty. Best of all, the MADRIX software license for 1024 DMX channels is already included.

Stand-alone mode

The PLEXUS was built around one main feature: MADRIX stand-alone playback. Users are now given a professional and feature-rich tool to configure and run sophisticated, time-controlled light shows without the need for a computer during the show.

Another special feature is the sync mode. Users can simply connect multiple devices to control vast setups. The implemented functions make it possible to synchronize light shows across several devices, covering individual as well as overlapping visuals. The LED show will be completely in sync, although it is controlled by two or even hundreds of separate interfaces.
