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.
