ÉPIX Flex Drive

ÉPIX Flex Drive controls the ÉPIX Flex 20 with 2 plug and play outputs that drive up to 4 ÉPIX Flex 20 at 960 LEDs each. Adding ÉPIX Flex Boost to each output doubles the capacity of the drive to 1920 LEDs or 8 ÉPIX Flex 20, which reduces cost per linear feet. To ease installation, ÉPIX Flex Drive allows for 75ft of extension cables between it and the first ÉPIX Flex 20. Use either pixel control or its simplified 17 / 34-channel control personalities to support changing colors and built-in automatic programs. Webserver is supported for remote configuration and for firmware updates.
