The Pharos Designer EDN (Ethernet Data Node) is a convenient and scalable solution, providing cost-effective Ethernet-distributed DMX ports for large control projects.
Pharos from control to fixture
The EDN is an easily configurable networking node that is specifically designed to add physical DMX ports to Pharos Designer controllers and integrates natively with the full Pharos Designer range. Have the reassurance of using Pharos hardware all the way to the fixture.
Available in two variants, a 10-port or a 20-port EDN, with an additional Ethernet port for local daisy-chaining
Easily configured and patched to your Designer controller with the free Pharos Designer 2 software
DMX ports can be flexibly assigned to any controller in your project, providing an elegant data distribution solution over an Ethernet network with minimal setup required
The EDN offers up to 20 DMX512 output ports to control your fixtures. Each port is independently galvanically isolated up to 2kV, ensuring the control circuitry and each port of the EDN is protected against a multitude of electrical line faults, including earth potential rise and ground loops.
DMX ports on the EDN are “self-healing”, giving your equipment added protection from incorrect setup and energy surges, such as short circuits, power induction and AC power faults. Should an energy surge occur, it will be contained by the EDN, preventing it from flowing into other components; once the external fault is cleared, the ports “self-heal”, restoring DMX output automatically.
Built from the ground up on Pharos technology, the EDN natively interfaces with the rest of the Designer product range including Designer 2 software. Connecting it to your Designer lighting project is as simple as ensuring the EDN is on the same network as the Designer controllers. From there, Designer will detect it, giving you full control of your Ethernet network lighting solution with minimal effort. Read more
Up to 200 EDN units and other Remote Devices can be combined with one or more Pharos Designer controllers on the same network to build the ideal system for your installation. Each Remote Device is easily addressed using a convenient thumb wheel. Whether one controller or many, it’s all easily programmed using our Designer 2 software. Read more
Distribute your EDNs over a standard Ethernet network. Where several EDN are rack-mounted together, there is also a convenient second network port provided for daisy-chaining them. Our recommended limit of eight daisy-chained EDNs is to ensure high performance for the potential data through the switch.
RDM Capable (from v2.8)
Supports the Remote Device Management protocol (ANSI E1.20), allowing fixtures connected to any of the DMX512 outputs to communicate back to their respectively assigned Controllers over an Ethernet network.
The Pharos SDI (Serial Data Interface) is an accessory for the EDN supporting serial data protocol outputs for controlling products such as addressable LED tape. The SDI supports both synchronous (SPI) and asynchronous serial lighting data and allows patching up to 3 universes (1536 channels) per unit.
Designed in the UK for 24/7 operation and reliability, with a 5 year warranty
Made for permanent installation, in a compact 1U 19” form factor with installer-friendly connectors.
