The newly developed range of coolux Pandoras Box NetLink products make it possible to convert a great number of external inputs into network data. Each NetLink unit can be equipped with up to two modules that can be freely configured.
A very important role played by NetLink products is the connection between switching relays, sensor input and output as well as the award winning coolux Widget Designer control software.
The coolux EDID Link is an EDID generator developed to be perfectly aligned with the Pandoras Box product family. One of its major features, in addition to its very robust design, is the ability to supply power via USB or DVI. The user can also select pre-programmed presets by using a rotary switch on the actual body of the EDID Link.
Up to 50 different EDIDs can be freely chosen and set, using a simple and user friendly GUI.
The coin sized coolux ID Tags make real-time tracking scenarios not only easier to set up, but also more reliable, more versatile, and more cost effective. Each of the tags can be addressed with a unique ID, which opens up the possibility of up to 256 different unique IDs being tracked in real-time within a single setup.
