SYMPL Modular Controller Range



Flexible, modular – SYMPL

SYMPL is the new, scalable and easy to use controller portfolio for a various number of lighting control tasks. Simplicity and flexibility are the main features within the SYMPL Modular Controller Range approach, control devices can be individually tailored and combined to any lighting project needs, also creating an added value regarding planning and installation.

 

SYMPL features a fully decentralized system architecture and ensures a customizable project setup with sophisticated control devices on a unified and Ethernet-based system bus. The Quick Link Mode simplifies IP configuration and system setup. The SYMPL Modular Controller Range offers a large variety of system interfaces, such as: DMX/RDM, e:pix, DALI, Serial, Relay, Inputs or e:bus.

 

The SYMPL range consist of two main components, which can be combined in multiple ways and tailored to any individual project’s needs. The SYMPL Core S is the heart of the system and is responsible for orchestrating all SYMPL Nodes and dimmers. The SYMPL Core S is running e:cue’s new light management software SYMPHOLIGHT and ensures full performance of each installation with every SYMPL Core without any Standalone limitation.

 

SYMPL Nodes are the intelligent interfaces to fixtures, sensors or other control systems and come with unified dimensions, power inputs and system bus throughout the entire range to ease installation, extension and maintenance.

Devices at a glance



SYMPL Core S e:cue SYMPL Core S is a standalone engine for e:cue SYMPHOLIGHT. It executes SYMPHOLIGHT shows in small to medium-sized control projects and orchestrates all available SYMPL Nodes. It includes a full license of e:cue SYMPHOLIGHT which can be shared with a user in the same network, making an additional license dongle superfluous.
SYMPL dmx Node The SYMPL dmx Node is a two DMX/RDM universe interface. It provides two independent DMX/RDM inputs/outputs for two DMX512 universes enabling bidirectional communication with fixtures. The SYMPL dmx Node can be powered by an external power supply or via Power-over-Ethernet (PoE).
SYMPL e:pix Node The SYMPL e:pix Node is a e:pix interface with two universe output. It provides two independent e:pix interfaces for two e:pix universes with 2048 channels each. The SYMPL e:pix Node can be powered by an external power supply or via Power-over-Ethernet (PoE).
SYMPL dali Node The e:cue SYMPL dali Node is a single line DALI interface. It provides a DALI interface for up to 64 DALI devices in one line including bus power and full support for DALI ballast and OSRAM sensors / inputs. The SYMPL dali Node is powered by an external power supply.
SYMPL input Node The e:cue SYMPL input Node is an eight-channel analog input interface. It provides eight independent analog 10 V inputs, which can be used as digital inputs as well. Four inputs also support 20 mA constant current input, configurable with four slide switches. The e:cue SYMPL input Node can be powered by an external power supply or via Power-over-Ethernet (PoE).
SYMPL serial Node The e:cue SYMPL serial Node is a serial interface. It provides two independent serial interfaces, one RS-232 and one RS-485 port. The e:cue SYMPL serial Node is powered by an external power supply or via Ethernet (PoE).
SYMPL relay Node The e:cue SYMPL relay Node is a switching interface. It provides three relay interfaces in single-pole, double-throw configuration. The e:cue SYMPL relay Node can be powered by an external power supply or via Power-over-Ethernet (PoE).
SYMPL e:bus Node The e:cue SYMPL e:bus Node is a single channel e:bus interface. It provides an e:bus interface for up to eight e:bus devices like e:cue GLASS TOUCH terminals. The e:cue SYMPL e:bus Node is powered by an external power supply or via Power-over-Ethernet (PoE).
