MADRIX I/O products are supplementary input and output devices. External equipment, such as sensors, bring additional automation processes and interaction to any LED project using MADRIX Software.

 

MADRIX USB contact closure
This digital input device registers if its circuit is either open or closed. In most cases, it is used to build a switch or trigger. Incoming values are directly translated into DMX data in the MADRIX Software. The small unit can simply be connected to any USB 2.0 port.


Example of use: Strobe or Blackout.
We used two, large push buttons ourselves at Prolight + Sound 2013 for visitors to simply produce a Strobe or Blackout on certain LEDs of the booth.

 

MADRIX USB temperature
This small and durable sensor measures the temperature. Incoming temperature values are directly translated into DMX data in the MADRIX Software as well as degree Celsius or degree Fahrenheit. The small unit can simply be connected to any USB 2.0 port.


Example of use: SCE Ticker / Scrolling Text
Using a macro, you can simply display the current temperature of the room on your LEDs!

 

MADRIX USB light sensor
This sensor measures the ambient light level. Incoming values are directly translated into DMX data in the MADRIX Software as well as percent. The small unit can simply be connected to any USB 2.0 port.


Example of use: Master
Let MADRIX automatically adjust the overall brightness of the LEDs depending on the light level indoors or outdoors.

 

MADRIX USB SMPTE
This input device allows you to effortlessly use SMPTE time code for time synchronization across multiple devices. Data is received via the 3-pin, female XLR connector. The device can simply be connected to any USB 2.0 port.


Example of use: Cue List
Keep you your show fully in sync across all devices involved.

 

Usage

MADRIX I/O products integrate with MADRIX mainly as DMX devices. They can be used

  • for DMX Remote Control in combination with the DMX-IN Remote Editor.
  • as data source for MADRIX Script to be used in scripts or macros.
  • for the reception of time code in the Cue List.

 

Software Requirements

MADRIX I/O requires MADRIX 3. Please update at least to MADRIX 3.4.
