LV4-4Channel-handheld-LED Controller

LV4 – Market Leading, 4 Channel, Handheld, LED Controller

The LV4 is our market leading, 4 channel, handheld LED controller with embedded radio.

This product was developed following a client request to add W to the existing LV3’s RGB, giving RGBW control. It has since become sought after in the industry and we regularly develop additional custom modes for our clients’ specific requirements.

With the capability for manual or remote setting our units are small, flat and discreet – easily hiding in costumes, or settings. Controlling LED strip at high frequency,  they’ve been used for the likes of adding atmosphere to scenes and lighting up superhero and other costumes.

FEATURES

Options and adjustments to the LED controller are screwdriver applied to ensure a flat, ‘invisible’ product.

Modes 0-9 – 2 primary modes: manual or radio, along with a selection of other variations as required, e.g. bi-colour mode brightness and CCT modes.

  • Manual – with adjustable brightness for each of the 4 RGBW channels when illuminating, tuning colour and brightness as a static controller is required.
  • Radio control – with one click, switch to the in-built Lumen Radio, to take remote control of features from difficult to reach or moving locations.
  • 8 further modes available – custom modes EMP Designs has created for clients include 16-bit mode for a finer resolution, 8-bit control but with a specified set percentage resolution, and RGB plus global to dim whole colour up and down.

RDMX port – with light to show what the radio controller is doing/if radio is in use.

Sync button – clears memory and connects to radio desks.

Analogs – 0 to 100%.

100s, 10s, 1s dials – to set the radio address for the DMX with 512 channels available.

BO – option to black out / turn all outputs of.

RDM DMX Buffer

RDM Fully Isolated DMX Buffer (3:4 and 3:10)

Remote management and distribution of film, TV and theatre lighting just got easier!

Responding to the needs and requests of lighting companies and directors in film and TV, EMP has created a DMX buffer with built-in ‘Lumen Radio’ and Remote Device Management (RDM) capability to improve network control and flexibility of lighting.

Even when we are simply delivering existing solutions, we are always looking to ensure we make the most of the latest technology and deliver the best capability availability. The units are very economical for the given functionality.

Technical Detail
Removing the need for a separate radio unit, there is now a 3rd choice of remote connection in addition to the standard 2 inputs. To aid diagnostic and initial set up, the system allows 2-way RDM communication – the unit communicates with the lighting fixture, and the fixture communicates back to the system controller.
For ease of use, each output has a switch allowing users to choose from each of the 3 inputs, universe A and B, and Lumen Radio. There is also a small LED light by each output that lights up to indicate when data is coming through, with the colour of the light identifying which source. This allows easy reading of the connections in a dark setting and also aids quick recognition of a selection fault.

To make the system more robust, each input/output is both galvanically isolated and opto-isolated, with no electrical pathway between it and the control electronics.

This system is also available with 4 outputs – version 3:4. At EMP, we are now developing RDM software and hardware for all controllers.
