SKU: IA-HW-001021


The MADRIX ORION is specifically designed as a general-purpose input device for analog input and Ethernet-based output for remote control and interactivity.


Powerful A/D Converter
Easily convert any analog input signal ranging from 0 V – 12 V into an 8-bit or 16-bit digital DMX output signal. Sample incoming signals instantly and map all inputs individually to up to 8 or 16 DMX channels per device.

Art-Net / Streaming ACN / USB
Send the output signal as Art-Net or Streaming ACN (E1.31) over long or short distances to any compatible software or hardware controller. In addition, simply connect to MADRIX 5 over USB.

8 Versatile Inputs
Directly connect to a wide range of compatible sensors, potentiometers, switches, and triggers. Easily create interactive projects using sensors for light, temperature, PIR, and many more.

Versatile Output
Different input types allow data to be processed and parameterized differently for the output. Each input can be separately set as Analog-IN, Digital-IN, Counter, and other useful functions.

Direct Connection
2 main 6-pin ports are available with 4 individual pins each as well as GND and V+. Flexibly supply 5 V – 24 V power over the 2-pin screw terminal.

Daisy-Chain Support
2 Ethernet ports allow for separate network connections as well as linearly daisy-chaining several devices together for better cable management.

Designed For DIN Rails Or Walls
Its non-conductive enclosure and standardized design for 35 mm top-hat rails make mounting quick, easy, and safe. 2 extra brackets are provided for optional wall mounting. 9 indicators quickly show the device status with the option to turn them off.

Invaluable Features
The device is ready within seconds after startup. Its firmware is upgradable for future enhancements. Access and change specific device settings using the built-in web configuration page.
