Views: 58

Middleton, Wisconsin, USA – A new F-Drive accessory is now available, simplifying installation and increasing compatibility with third-party fixtures. The B-Box4 uses the RJ45 output of an F-Drive card to position up to four channels of Molex, terminal, or RJ45 connections at any location in your installation. With the addition of B-Box, the award-winning F-Drive LED power system offers more flexibility to meet each facility’s installation needs. Whether using third-party or ETC-manufactured fixtures, specifiers can simplify the wiring required to connect to the F-Drive unit.

F-Drive is a modular, centralized solution for controlling LED luminaires. With easy access to swappable driver cards and power supplies, all critical components are readily accessible for maintenance and updates. F-Drive is available as an R12 rack-mounted solution or a W1 wall-mounted solution. A variety of connection options allow facilities to use a wide range of luminaires with B-Box, while taking advantage of ETC’s superior dimming and control technology. ETC’s new F-Drive System Design Tool helps confirm third-party functionality. In addition, our integration test lab is set up and ready to receive general market fixtures for testing and performance grading.
