ETC's Eos RPU3 can provide primary and backup control in Ti, Eos, Gio and Gio @5 control systems, or it can be used as a stand-alone lighting playback unit.  A 2U device, it can be mounted into 19" equipment racks or road cases.

The front of the RPU3 includes a power switch, USB port and 20 user-programmable buttons with backlit labels for frequently used functions.  The buttons have default mapping, including Live, Blind, Go, Stop/Back and paging controls, and can be reprogrammed for your system's individual requirements.  There are 3 Display port connectors on the RPU3, which works with single- or multi-touch displays.  The RPU3 comes with two individually-configured, power-sourcing network ports, and there are four USB ports on the back panel.  It has local I/O, including two DMX ports, MIDI In/Out, and a remote trigger.

Eos RPU3 Features

  • Full Eos power in a 19" rack, use as primary or backup
  • 8 or 48 DMX universes¹ with no co-processing
  • 20 user-definable buttons
  • Supports three external high resolution Display Port monitors or touchscreens
  • 2 DMX/RDM outputs
  • 2 RJ45 outputs  (sACN, ETCNet2, Net3, ArtNet, and Avab UDP)
  • 5 USB Ports, plus Contact Closure and MIDI connections
  • Up to three fader wings may be used
  • ¹ Technically supports up to 64 DMX universes once fully unlocked, however a free factory upgrade code is required so ETC can provide you personalized support.

Eos Family Features

  • Show file compatibility with the entire Eos Family, from the Eos Ti down to the Element² and ETCnomad.
  • Three user-definable workspaces per monitor, each with discrete split-screen controls, frame management, and snapshots.
  • Custom-design your control interface using Magic Sheets, with topographical or abstract layouts.  Full interaction with the command line allows command instructions - from the simplest and most immediate to the most complex - accessed from a mouse or single- or multi-touch displays.
  • Configure and program a pixel-map layout, using integral or custom-designed content.
  • Award-winning color controls, including six Color Pickers and a Gel Picker for color mixing.
  • Client/server networking and synchronized backup using multiple consoles and/or RPUs
  • Client and Offline programming on PC³ and Mac³ via ETCnomad
  • 99 discrete online users with partitioned control
  • 32,768 Control Channels (Fixtures)⁴
  • 10,000 Cues and 999 Cue Lists
  • 200 Active Playbacks and 999 Submasters
  • 100 Fader Pages for Playbacks and Submasters
  • 1,000 each of Presets, Palettes, Groups, Effects, Snapshots, Curves, and Color Paths
  • 99,999 Macros
  • ² The Element does not support Multiple Cue Lists or more than one active playback.  Additionally the physical submasters are locked to numbers 1-60, and fader wings are not supported.
  • ³ PC requires Windows 7 or higher.  Mac is Intel only and requires OS X or higher.  The ETCnomad software is free for offline programming or "mirror mode", but requires a dongle to act as a client.
  • ⁴ The console is still limited by the number of DMX universes/outputs, thus you may not be able to use all these channels.
