AsteraBox

The AsteraBox CRMX is the interface between Astera armatures and controllers. The AsteraBox
can be used as a wireless DMX transmitter with CRMX technology, but also works as an interface
between the app and lighting. This interface includes a built in battery, just like
the armatures. The AsteraBox always comes delivered with a tablet when rented from HWC Events
& Rentals. This means that you will always be ready to control Astera lights.

Functions

The AsteraBox works as a kind of translation machine between the Astera armatures and the controller.
The AsteraBox converts incoming signals to an RF signal (865-870 mHz), which the lights react
to. The lights also communicate back, meaning that valuable information from the armatures
can be read. The AsteraBox uses the 865-870 mHz band, meaning that there is a much lower
chance of problems. Many wireless transmitters function using the very crowded 2.4 GHz band.
The lower frequencies also increase the range of the transmitter to 300 metres.

The AsteraBox can be coupled with the included tablet using Bluetooth. Via the Astera app,
you can control the AsteraBox for up to 72 hours on one battery charge. It is also possible
to connect the AsteraBox to a light table. You can use the AsteraBox for up to 16 hours
as a wireless DXM controller using the DMX cable.

Android App

You can create and read various complex programmes with colours, effects, and settings via the
tablet. It is very easy to create groups, relay locations, and programme effects using the app.
Check battery status, radio signal, DMX address, and which lights are on/off. You can even
be informed when lights need to be moved or turned off.

It is possible to programme DMX addresses and profiles for one or multiple lights via the tablet.
This is much quicker than doing it on the armatures themselves. Using the application, you can
set up or adjust around 50 armatures in 5 minutes. After your event, you can perform a very
easy master reset, making all lights ready to use for the next show.

Wireless DMX

The AsteraBox also works as a wireless DMX transmitter. Connect the AsteraBox to the light
table to do this. With the included XLR adaptor, you can transmit one DMX universe with LumenRadio
CRMX technology or W-DMX by Wireless Solutions (up to G4S). Astera lighting supports both
wireless DMX standards, so tahat you can use them together with almost all other wireless
lights and transmitters.

Remote control

Are you inexperienced in the field of lighting? Simple assignments can be relayed to the AsteraBox
using the remote control. With the infrared remote control you can easily turn lights on and off,
programme the desired colour, play preset programmes, and adjust speed and light level.

Tips

Experience

A certain level of professional knowledge in the lighting field is required to use the AsteraBox. Without this specific knowledge, it becomes very easy to drown in all of the possibilities.
