W-DMX™ Shares Education and New Products at PLASA09

Wireless Solution Sweden AB is once again using PLASA to showcase new W-DMXâ„¢ products, as well as hosting an educational seminar to educate the public on the benefits and advances in Wireless DMX technology. Wireless Solution will be in Hall 1, Stand E43.


One of the most exciting products on display will be the UglyBox Performance Kit, nominated for a PLASA Innovation Award. The UglyBox Performance Kit includes the new W-DMX UglyBox and Co-Existence Dongle with a wide selection of antennae to provide feedback on all aspects of wireless signal, never before available to lighting technicians. The rugged UglyBox test tool measures the DMX channel data values, the real time signal strength, and the history of signal stability. The Co-Existence Dongle ensures harmony of multiple wireless protocols by enabling custom channel selection and adjustment of output power. Together with the accompanying software for radio spectrum monitoring and antenna calculation, the kit ensures a safe, controlled environment for wireless DMX.


Also on display is the new generation of the W-DMX Installation series, which includes the S-1, S-2 and R-512. They are all IP65 rated and follow the NEMA standard, with all the interference-free reliability of the original series. The new Installation series is built into a custom molding with a built-in wall-mount bracket for quick and smooth installation, and a new easy-access, IP65 protected cover to allow hassle-free access to the “One-button-2-go” interior components. It also now gives users an easy view of the signal bar from the outside, whereas the display was located on the inside in the previous models. In addition, the new Installation Series has improved ventilation, making the units work in ambient temperatures up to 50°C (122°F) continuously.
