Ready to use right out of the box, the DMX-16 System lets you hook up 8 DMX fixtures (4 on each Switch Pack) for convenient On/Off control from the DMX-16SW Control Panel. If you have more than 8 DMX lights, the system is fully expandable. The DMX-16SW Control Panel can support up to two additional Switch Packs, making it capable of controlling a total of 16 DMX effects. What's more, the DMX-16SW Control Panel will work with any DMX Dimmer/Switch Pack on the market, not just those sold by Elation.

The flexible DMX-16 System doesn't stop there. To handle even larger numbers of DMX fixtures, multiple DMX-16SW Control Panels can be linked together. Up to 32 DMX-16SWs can be linked total, providing at-your-fingertips On/Off control of an impressive 512 DMX channels.

The Control Panel includes 16 On/Off channel switches with LED indicators, a 10-position dip switch for setting DMX address, and power failure memory.

The 4-channel DP-415 Dimmer/Switch Packs are equipped with dual 15 amp Edison sockets per channel. They have a load capacity of 5 amps per channel, with a 15 amp maximum On at one time.
