e:cue Lighting Control Introduces Light-Drive Elite - Innovative DMX Controller

e:cue lighting control – An OSRAM Company, introduces light-drive elite, its first standalone DMX controller and user interface for dynamic RGB LED lighting that does not require software programming.

Users can easily control intensity, color, and speed as well as setup their favorite color-changing effects through light-drive elite’s glass interface with touch-sensitive keys and touch wheel.

Specifically designed for the end-user, this innovative DMX controller features a high-end sleek design and an intuitive interface that allows anyone to create static and dynamic lighting scenes. Jan Julius Miebach, e:cue’s Managing Director for Product Strategy, said “we designed this product to allow end-users to experience dynamic lighting as well create dynamic lighting scenes themselves. We specifically paid great attention to the user interaction with the device as well its aesthetic design.”

The glassy interface features an LED ring around the touch wheel to guide users in selecting and adjusting colors, intensity, and speed as well as select four colors for graceful color-changing lighting scenes.

light-drive elite does not require software to program it at all and it is easily connected to fixtures through an RJ45 connection for power and data, outputting directly DMX.

How it works:
The four mode keys are used to select Intensity, Color, White color temperature, and Memory to store the four user-modifiable colors.

In Intensity mode, the LED ring will show the user in real-time the current intensity level as well as which way to slide through the touch wheel to increase or decrease the intensity of the selected color. In Color mode, the LED ring guides users in selecting a base color and then the touch wheel is used for fine color adjustment. This will be shown in real-time on the LED ring so users do not have to look away from the device. White mode is used to select and adjust white temperature from warm white to cold white. In Memory mode, users will be able to store four modifiable colors and use the touch wheel to adjust the speed of the color-changing effect. The replay key in the center of the touch wheel is used to play and pause color-changing scenes.

The package also includes a power and data merger to simplify the connection to the light-drive elite.

The product is designed for wall-mounting and it is easily wall-mounted using the bracket included in the package. The sleek design without push-buttons is designed for preservation and easy cleaning. light-drive elite features cleaning mode, by holding the on/off key for five seconds, allows easy cleaning of the glassy interface without affecting the touch keys or the touch wheel.

An optional remote control device is available used with the device’s IR receiver. light-drive elite can also work with fixtures that are driven by PWM or DALI using e:cue’s dmx2pwm and dmx2dali interfaces.
