The MADRIX Nebula connects to your LED pixels directly. This powerful SPI decoder is designed to give great image quality and accepts control data through an Ethernet network or USB.
Madrix Nebula Key Features
SPI Converter & Direct Connection
Directly connect to a wide range of supported LEDs via two 4-pin screw terminals. A signal frequency of up to 24 MHz is available. Supply power over USB or 5 V to 24 V over a 2-pin screw terminal.
Quality Output Of 8 Universes
Each device drives up to 1,360 RGB pixels while ensuring the responsive delivery of high-quality signals to each individual LED. You can choose the output protocol separately for each of the two ports.
Art-Net / Streaming ACN / USB
Network data is directly converted to SPI without the need for an additional interface. Reliably distribute data from any compatible software or hardware controller. In addition, simply connect to MADRIX 5 over USB.
Sync Mode & Daisy-Chain Support
MADRIX 5 and MADRIX hardware allow you to fully synchronize Art-Net data for all ports and across devices to get an optimal image on the LEDs without visual interruptions. 2 Ethernet ports allow linearly daisy-chaining several devices together.
Designed For DIN Rails Or Walls
Its non-conductive enclosure and standardized design for 35 mm top-hat rails make mounting quick, easy, and safe. 2 extra brackets are provided for optional wall mounting. 9 indicators quickly show the device status with the option to turn them off.
The device is ready within seconds after startup. HTTP Merging is automatically available for two Ethernet sources. Its firmware is upgradable. Access and change specific device settings using the built-in web configuration page.
