W-DMX CRMX transmitter receiver

The PowerBox can charge Helios and Titan Tubes inside their respective case. When taken out of the case they can also be used to hard-wire tubes for a longer usage. In addition, the PowerBox can add DMX, Artnet and sACN data to your tubes. Power and Data can both run over special cables so only 1 cable is needed to connect a tube to the PowerBox.

PowerBox is compatible with:
