"CRMX Nova Flex is the Swiss Army Knife of wireless lighting control; user configurable as a transmitter or receiver and it receives, transmits, and converts all the protocols commonly used in today's entertainment and architainment systems. We designed CMRX Nova Flex for the demanding lighting professional who wanted one configurable wireless product that can handle any application and environment.

"LumenRadio is also making CRMX 2.4/5.8 GHz Cognitive dual band available as an option across all CRMX product lines. Although 99% of our customers' needs are met by our standard single band 2.4 GHz CRMX Automated Cognitive Coexistence we decided to add optional dual band operation for those applications that require exceptional performance and reliability. The option comes in the form of a module that at any time can be added to any new or existing CRMX product", explains Niclas Norlén, CTO of LumenRadio.
