Butler XT (Discontinued)

Franz Keller Winery - Oberbergen, Germany

Please use Butler XT2

The Butler XT is the new expanded variant of the well known butler DMX output device. The Butler XT stands apart because of an advanced feature set as well as for its (X=cross, T=terminal) terminal features. The features and versatile connectivity of the e:cue Butler XT, combined with the seamless integration into the e:cue lighting application suite (LAS) 5.0 software, provide solutions for all kinds of DMX control scenarios. The Butler XT works also as a gateway between the e:cue network backbone and the cutting edge e:cue glass touch user terminal series. The Butler XT`s features list is extensive: 1024 DMX channels output, microSD card memory for up to 99 cuelists, independent, stepless dimming of each DMX output and a lot more. All this offers near infinite possibilities for all stand-alone lighting control requests. The 8 digital inputs, a RS-232 serial port, and built-in infrared receiver provide additional connectivity to third party systems and networks, while the e:bus port provides data and power to the e:cue glass touch devices.

Control up to 1024 DMX/RDM channels One small yet powerful Butler XT can control up to 1024 DMX/RDM channels (individual control of 1024 monochromatic light nodes or 340 RGB color mixing nodes).

Supports RDM protocol for bidirectional communication RDM’s (Remote Device Management) bidirectional communication feature allows configuration, status monitoring, and management of lighting fixtures with RDM capability.

Internal real-time and astronomical clock Time-related triggers designed using the e:cue software suite also work when running on this device by using the Butler XT’s internal real-time and astronomical clock. This feature allows programming of lighting show triggers based on specific dates and taking into account daylight savings, and time of day, such as the start of dawn.
