The newest product in the ENTTEC LED driver line is the PLink CVC3; this compact unit gives designers the option of working with both pixel controlled LEDs and standard LEDs, particularly LED tape. The CVC3 can be used to control three dimmable channels of RGB LED tape, or three individual single color LED strips. The CVC3 is designed to work with all brands of RGB LED tape, as well as the entire line of ENTTEC proprietary pixel tape, and is an integral part of the popular ENTTEC Pixelator system. The CVC3 can control up to 340 RGB LED strips or 1024 single color LED strips. Multiple CVC3 units can be daisy chained together with the same PLink data, eliminating the need to have individual data runs from each ENTTEC Pixelator or Pixelator Mini port. Configuring the CVC3 is extremely simple, since the DMX address is automatically assigned based on location in the chain.
Installation of the CVC3 is easy, and it can be used with data extensions of up to 984 feet (300 meters) using a Cat6 cable and features a compact, easy to conceal design. A single CVC3 might be perfect for a small design; when it is time for a larger project, the CVC3 can be easily scaled up by daisy chaining more into the system, and each CVC3 unit has incremental automatic addressing, so the numbering is already taken care of by the device without any dip switches.
