More about the Capulet Wireless DC Dimmer Pack:
It is a DMX-controlled wireless DC dimmer pack. This 6-channel remote dimmer pack is intended for use in combination with the Trinculoʼs Attic Wireless Base Station, which receives DMX from a control console and transmits the DMX to the Capulet. Up to 16 Capulets can be controlled with a single Wireless Base Station, with an option for up to 32 Capulets in certain situations.
The Capulet is specifically designed to be very small and easily incorporated into a costume. With an input voltage range of 3.7-12.5VDC, it can easily control 6 channels of LEDs, EL wire, motors, MR16 lamps, or a variety of other DC loads. The wireless range on the Capulet is around 100 feet line-of-sight, allowing the costumed actor or dancer to travel virtually anywhere inside a theatre and still receive the DMX signal.

- Weight: 2 oz.
