The SB-AAA2/100 was designed as a versatile and comprehensive connectivity solution for a wide variety of the Ethernet protocols commonly used in stage, studio, and architectural lighting systems. This highly portable and rugged package enables DMX-over-Ethernet input and output for the majority of today’s lighting control systems, show controllers, and visualizers.

The two DMX ports are bi-directional for maximum flexibility so that any port, independent of the XLR connector gender, can be configured as an input or output. The SB-AAA2/100 supports 10BaseT and 100BaseT for unparalleled throughput and easy integration with any network topology. Auto MDI/MDI-X eliminates the need to worry about straight vs. cross-over cabling. Power over Ethernet provides effortless power to the unit via PoE switches or mid-span injectors. An external wall-wart style power supply can be used when PoE is unavailable.

SandBoxes are easily configured and managed with the free Sand Device Browser or with any other SandNet software application. A factory default button provides a convenient configuration starting point for the novice user. SandBoxes also support firmware uploads over Ethernet to accommodate the rapidly evolving world of entertainment networks.
