Description

Expanding the grandMA3 system is simple with addition of grandMA3 processing units! The grandMA3 processing unit M increases the overall grandMA3 system by 4,096 parameters and enables the system designer to expand the lighting control system in small steps. Besides the powerful CPU for frame-synchronous calculation, the grandMA3 processing unit M additionally offers a Mode2 to expand existing grandMA2 systems by 4,096 parameters.

The grandMA3 processing units are designed for rack mounting and all models are only 2RU, allowing for efficient touring solutions. Each model is equipped with 8 DMX outputs for frame-synchronous DMX output throughout the network. Additional frame-synchronous DMX outputs are available with the addition of grandMA3 xPort Nodes.

grandMA3 processing units offer a perfect system overview on the integrated touchscreen. This easy access to important functions allows for best maintenance if installed in a dedicated rack whilst every function can be monitored from the grandMA3 session.

For larger systems it is suggested to keep the grandMA3 processing units in a centralized position for parameter expansion and to use grandMA3 xPort Nodes to distribute and output the frame-synchronous DMX data.

The grandMA3 processing unit L expands the system by 8,192 parameters and offers frame-synchronous calculation of the parameters within the MA-Net3 environment. Designed for larger systems, the L model offers a more cost effective and compact solution for parameter expansion. Additionally, the grandMA3 processing unit L offers a Mode2 to expand existing grandMA2 systems by 4,096 parameters.

The grandMA3 processing unit XL is the ultimate parameter expansion solution offering substantial cost and size savings. It’s the simplest way to design grandMA3 lighting control systems with up to 250,000 parameters. The powerful CPU ensures frame-synchronous calculation of 16,384 parameters within the MA-Net3 environment.
