The SnakeSys Stage Box S6 is a rugged six port 2 universe Ethernet to DMX convertor with an in-built network switch supporting three separate DMX output sockets per universe.
The SnakeSys S6 includes a battery so that it can be configured even when there is no mains power, for example when preping the lighting rig. Pressing the centre button activates the unit giving access to the menu systems. The configuration is stored within the unit. The front panel also includes a label area for marking up the box with a pen if required.
The SnakeSys S6 supports both Art-Net and ACN support, along with ChamNet to allow remote management over the network connection. When in ChamNet mode, the configuration data is stored on board, allowing the device to be restarted.
The SnakeSys S6 has an additional DMX input port on the bottom edge which enables the S6 to work as a stand alone DMX buffer – useful for situations where a truss mount buffer is needed.
Supports Hook Clamp or Omega Clamp. Three mounting points for omega clamps allow the unit to support four different orientations for convenient mounting or hiding within set pieces. Mounting holes are also provided for safety chains and secondary fixings for additional safety or to allow routing of cables.
The SnakeSys Stage Box S6 was previously sold as the SnakeSys T2 – but as many of our customers use the product on the stage floor, on floor mounted stands, as well as on the truss we felt Stage Box better reflected its real value as a general purpose Stage Box that can be mounted naywhere, not just on trusses.
