The System Power Supply 4E provides Schnick-Schnack-Systems’ series L, B, C and M
products with power and data.
It has four independent XLR4-pin outputs and can be controlled by either Ethernet
(Art-Net, sACN) or DMX512 data and is therefore compatible with most lighting consoles
and media servers. The control signal can be freely patched across the four outputs. It
is also possible to use the System Power Supply 4E as a standalone unit, without a DMX
or Art-Net control signal.
The addressing of the components takes place directly on the System Power Supply via
Smart Link.
The System Power Supply 4E belongs to Generation 3 and in addition to DMX can also
read the Dynamic-Pixel-Bus protocol (DPB) in order to control LED components. By
using the DPB more LED-Panels or other elements per output of a System Power Supply
are possible – up to 3.072 channels. Switching between DPB and DMX is possible at all
The Generation 3 LED components firmware can be updated from a central point via
the network with the System Power Supply 4E.
Thanks to integrated HTML 5.0 webservers, the System Power Supply can be completely
controlled remotely.

ESD warning
Please be aware that electrostatic discharges can destroy LED boards, and our experience shows that this does happen. During assembly, we recommend wearing at least
one antistatic wrist strap and avoiding static discharges – such as those that arise
when removing protective film or dry cleaning acrylic glass, for example– near LEDs!
Antistatic materials should be used when packaging the LED boards. Normal bubble
wrap or other plastic bags are not suitable.
For reasons of safety and radio shielding, please only use systems we have approved to
provide a power supply for our LED components. All technical information is based on
the version at the time of printing.
We reserve the right to make technical specifications in terms of a product improvement without prior notice. Printing – even excerpts – requires the written consent of
Schnick-Schnack-Systems GmbH.
