Artistic Licence has been designing lighting and control products for the architectural and entertainment industry for 21 years and brings this wealth of knowledge to the sign industry with its newly launched Sign-Control.

Artistic Licence Sign-Control - An electronic interface.Sign-Control is a DMX512 playback system developed by Artistic Licence specifically with the signage industry in mind and is suitable for companies requiring basic lighting control of any LED signage applications.

Each unit can be connected to a Building Management System (BMS) for complete integration into a hotel or venue's full control system.

Similar to Artistic Licence Light-Switch, Sign-Control's interface is now a user-friendly, visually pleasing membrane panel, featuring 14 buttons, from which lighting states can easily be recalled or triggered by a simple press of a button.

Lighting states can be programmed via a PC application, Artistic Licence Sign-Edit. Once programmed, the show is downloaded, programmed to flash memory and can be left to run in stand alone mode. Sign-Control can also be programmed by recording DMX512 from a lighting console.

Other control options include RS232, an external trigger, a daylight sensor and a Real-Time Clock with which the unit can be programmed to switch LEDs on and off at predesignated times, thus giving ample energy-saving opportunities.

Features include three pages of eight memories along with one page of six sequences, with each memory or sequence containing all 512 DMX channels and an Independent Fade Time. This gives Sign-Control the ability to control a full universe of DMX devices, with either a static look or a sequence of cues. A fourth page provides six sequences with variable step times and direction control.

Up to 15 Sign-Control panels can be connected to a single DMX512 cable and each panel can be programmed to control a specific zone or group of DMX channels. This allows Sign-Control to be used in multi-room or multi-zone applications.

The DIN-rail mounting makes Sign-Control ideal for permanent, architectural or exhibition purposes such as in conference rooms, retail, domestic, and museum exhibition applications, and can also be surface mounted to a wall.
