nLight®, a brand within the Acuity Brands portfolio, recently introduced DMX512 control to its networked lighting controls platform. The new nLight Snapshot Controller is a gateway linking nLight controls and DMX512 controls and luminaires, enabling easy, bi-directional communication. Through this device, nLight wall switches or sensors can directly control theatrical DMX lights and, in turn, the DMX lighting control console can dim or turn off the nLight controlled lights or initiate scenes. This is the only networked lighting control platform offering seamless operation with two-way communication between commercial lighting controls and theatrical DMX controls.
“The nLight Snapshot Controller allows specifiers to reduce their design and specification time using one high-performance lighting controls system,” said Steve Roe, Vice President, Controls Solutions, Acuity Brands Lighting and Controls. “For example, multipurpose spaces in schools need lighting solutions that are both creative and functional, while still meeting energy code compliance. This single solution offers seamless operation with two-way communication between nLight lighting controls and theatrical DMX controls and lighting, all while providing building and site lighting management under a single solution.”
The nLight Snapshot Controller leverages DMX technology developed by Pathway Connectivity Solutions, which provides a dynamic DMX lighting network for projects that include RGBX or entertainment lighting. A part of Acuity Brands, Pathway offers a family of innovative products that enable theatrical, commercial, and architectural lighting systems.
