Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) has released a two-way driver that allows users to control LED systems from Converging Systems' portfolio of lighting solutions via an RTI control system. The driver makes it extremely easy for to implement LED lighting in settings such as restaurants, bars, and home theatres.
"Our new Converging Systems two-way driver opens the door to complete LED and themed lighting control within residential and commercial installations," said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. "Because the driver enables easy control and lighting adjustments on-the-fly via an RTI interface, this is an incredibly powerful tool to bring customers highly customizable LED lighting capabilities."
Developed by RTI, the new two-way driver creates a simple solution for adding control of Converging Systems' powerful LED lighting controllers, along with their flexible RGB, RGB+W, and single colour LED lighting arrays as well as third-party DMX fixtures. This enables a wide range of LED adjustment options to be easily selected, saved, and programmed directly through any RTI interface — including the ability to modify RGB colour, hue, saturation, and brightness to emit captivating blends of up to 16.7 million colours. The solution also provides convenient pre-set options, extremely accurate dissolve rates without flicker or colour shifting, and flexible sequence rates that allow users to set sequencing between different colour changes.
Featuring full-colour or monochrome LED capabilities and support for up to 254 LED devices, the driver can be used with Converging Systems' ILC-100 Intelligent Lighting Controllers through the company's IBT-100 serial interface or the Ethernet-enabled e-Node interface. The innovative e-Node adapter processes incoming RTI commands and translates them into DMX lighting commands that can be directly routed to any third-party DMX fixture — eliminating costly front-end DMX controllers and associated hardware and programming — thus saving labour time and the number of devices that would be otherwise required.
