A new era of DMX networking has begun.
What if, for once, you didn't need to search for a problem if it occurred? What if, after applying corrective measures, the device would inform you precisely of what happened? Introducing the TourNode 8.
The TourNode 8 is the definitive solution to your DMX networking challenges. Packed with diagnostic and redundancy features, it greatly simplifies your lighting rig by providing DMX outputs or inputs where you need it, thus reducing cable runs.
Realtime cable monitoring on all ports
The TourNode 8 features a revolutionary cable monitoring system that can detect multiple types of cable failure along with the distance from the device at which they occur, in real-time. By pairing a mobile device with the TourNode 8, you will be notified of the fault within seconds, with precise diagnostic information. This cable fault detection system is also available on the network links.
Built for the industry
Powerful and reliable
The TourNode 8 also features an internal battery backup, keeping it alive for 10 minutes in case of a mains failure. The dual gigabit network links provide a redundant connection to the network, ensuring reliable operation even if network cabling is damaged. A DMX backup feature also prevents loss of communication with any fixture connected to the node by feeding the DMX data from both ends of the cable.
