ENTTEC Storm 8

• The Storm 8 is a compact Ethernet-DMX converter, a smaller sibling to the Storm 24.
• However, don’t let its size fool you! As one of a kind, the Storm 8 packs a huge punch and is powerful enough to control up to 8192 channels of DMX, with synchronisation across all eight of its RJ45 outputs, up to 300m away.
• The Storm 8’s robust 1U half-width hardware is enhanced by a mains input and an intuitive web interface.
• In addition, it features front LED indicators showing the status and connectivity of each unit, making installations both simple and fast.
• Furthermore, to increase the unit’s size to fit a full-width rack, the Storm 8 can be paired with ENTTEC’s ‘1RU 19inch ear kit.
• Finally, with input support for sACN and Art-Net 1, 2, 3, and 8 DMX outputs, controlling lighting fixtures and digital strips has never been easier than with this smart and compact Ethernet DMX converter.

• Easy Cabling
– Lower cabling costs and faster installation can be achieved using standard RJ45 outputs.
– Although XLR connectors are widely used in the entertainment industry, when your project isn’t travelling the world on a regular basis, RJ45 connectors offer the best price/performance ratio.
– Using standard CAT6 cable to connect your whole system also helps keep the cost per universe.
– We use the standard ANSI E1.27-2 specified RJ45 pinout to make sure the majority of equipment connections will be simple.
