Leprecon’s new Watson Power Management products provides AC power switching and DMX buffering for groups of LED fixtures. Using one DMX control channel or simply sensing DMX data, Watson turns fixtures off when they are not in use, saving power, extending fixture life, and isolating expensive electronics from power line glitches. An additional isolated DMX output adds extra DMX capacity, and adds a firewall between fixtures and the rest of the control system. Watson can be mounted near the fixtures using pipe clamps or threaded rod brackets. A complete raceway system is available that includes mounting for standard schedule 40 pipe. Available as a 9” enclosure with a single switched outlet (duplex or powercon), a 19” enclosure with six duplex outlets, or a 72” bar with six duplex outlets.
Also their new APC Series Architectural Wall Station Control system is a handy solution for integrating both architectural and theatrical lighting control into a single DMX based system. APC components are easy to install, wire and configure.
The APC System includes a series of Preset Button wall stations and optional Power Hub. Preset panels are available in one, three, six or 12 button preset looks plus Off, all with programmable fades. Standard Cat5 cable and RJ45 connectors are used to interconnect the panels in a system.
The Power Hub adds optical isolation for the dimmer output, and transmits DMX data with optimized timing that works well with low cost ‘DMX Challenged’ LED fixtures. The APC Power Hub provides power for up to 10 APC panels. Standard 5 pin XLR connectors are used for DMX in and out, and a RJ45 connector is used for connecting to the Preset panels.
