The W-APE 2.4GHz wireless DMX transceiver will transmit DMX-512 signal up to 3,000ft!
But it’s more than just a wireless DMX transceiver. Part of the beauty of Ape Labs fixtures is their simple design. Most wireless fixtures don’t have any control buttons or LCD screens on them. So in order to set the DMX channel and adjust their internal settings, a W-Ape (or MobiLight 4) is needed. To start programming, simply turn a wireless fixture on while it’s near the W-Ape. The screen that would normally be displayed on the lighting fixture is instead displayed on the W-Ape. If you press any button within a few seconds, you’ll be in the light, adjusting settings….and the light will tell you it’s receiving your adjustments by subtlety blinking a dim blue. When you’re done, just wait 5 seconds. The screen on the W-Ape will turn back to its own and the fixture will remember all of your settings. It doesn’t matter if you turn the fixture off or if the batteries die, your settings will be locked in until you change them again.
Don’t have a DMX controller? No problem. The W-Ape has some on-board controls for simple DMX programming. It also has an intelligent microphone so you can synchronize sound active mode across all fixtures with a centralized microphone. You can even mix and match different Ape Labs fixtures. Or, if you have the Ape Remote, extend the wireless range from 100ft to 3,000ft by pairing it with the W-Ape.
Finally, the W-Ape can be used to wirelessly update the firmware on your fixtures right from home, if Ape Labs puts out an update.
