Whether you need a convenient control hub backstage or in the house, or security for your long-running show, the Ion Xe Remote Processor Unit has everything under control.  This 2U 19" rack mount device can serve as a backup for your Ion Xe or Ion Xe 20 lighting control system, or it can function as a stand-alone lighting playback controller.

The RPU offers 2,048 or 12,288 outputs, partitioned control, and access to all Eos software programming functions.  The front panel of the RPU features 20 user-programmable buttons and ships with backlit labels for frequently-used and default-programmed functions.  The face panel also boasts LED indicators that show whether the RPU is in Primary, Backup, Client, or Master mode, and whether all RPUs in a system are synchronized and tracking.
