IDS SQ-DMX data sheet

The IDS SQ-DMX brings dynamic integration with DMX lighting equipment to your IDS network. Configure your lighting system using IDS Core and then use IDS Content Manger to control lighting levels.

The compact device is housed in a rugged aluminium enclosure, making it ideal for applications with little space. It connects to your network via Ethernet and, with its combination of PoE and tiny size, can be installed quickly and discreetly.

Management of the unit is straightforward, using the Windows® based configuration software supplied. It supports DHCP for automatic acquisition of IP address, but can be configured manually for a static IP if required.


The SQ-DMX is ideal for situations where dynamic lighting effects are required, such as news floors where the lighting for each sound booth can be controlled independently to indicate broadcast status. Use it with an IDS Touchscreen for remote dynamic control.

Any number of units can be installed on your system.
