EXALUX™ LEDMASTER PULSE GEN2 is a constant voltage LED dimmer designed to power LED fixtures on film sets.
The unit can be powered using typical V-Mount-compatible batteries or an external 24VDC PSU.
LEDMASTER PULSE GEN2 features a high efficiency step-up converter that boosts and regulates the battery voltage to 24VDC, so that you can optimally power your LED lighting device regardless of the battery’s charge level.

A few words about our PoD innovation, designed to ease powering DMX dongles (power & data in the same 5pos DMX cable), concept and terminology inspired by Ethernet PoE.
Currently, the LEDMASTER PULSE is the only PoD-PSE compliant system (Power Sourcing Equipment).
DMX XLR5 pin 5 (PoD 5V) is used to carry +5VDC power supply, 500mA max (USB standard), this voltage still remains compliant with all DMX (RS485) transceivers, if any online, and with DMX512A (ANSI E1.11) standard.
DMX XLR5 pin 4 (PoD Detect) is used to monitor and detect PoD systems.
The PoD 5V output on each DMX XLR5 (pin 5) can be disabled by user menu (disabled by default).
For security reasons, it is controlled by a power switch with limitation and protection features (V, I, T°), and the voltage is constantly monitored (PoD Detect).
So if DMX PoD function is enabled, the LEDMASTER PULSE will activate PoD 5V, monitor the power switch fault signal, then sense PoD Detect voltage. If no default and correct sense, +5V is maintained (but still regularly monitored), powering your DMX device.
On any default, PoD 5V is switched off and may be reactivated one all default conditions have disappeared.
This mechanism allows for live plug&play and support short circuits up to +5V on XLR PoD pins.
The PoD LED indicator located in front face of the unit indicate the status of the PoE for each DMX output.
We have made many improvements to our LEDMASTER PULSE to increase its performances and make your life easier.
> Output power increased to 180W (instead of 135W),
> Replacement of the analog Brightness potentiometer by a digital encoder with Push,
> Simplified access for fuse replacement (clip-on fuse, no soldering),
> Added PoD-PS functions on XLR5 In/Out for powering PoD-PD compliant dongles,
> Added Master/Slave function (wired),
> Added Full-On/Black-out function on the Brightness encoder push,
> Added haptic feedback by vibration,
> Repositioning of the connectors on the XLR front panel,
> Internal heat evacuation through the side vents (natural convection),
> Configuration menu allowing :
> setting of CCTmin and CCTmax for Patented CCT synthesizer,
> adjustment of the PWM switching frequency,
> dimming curve selection of the brightness,
> setting of the auto-lock delay,
> DMX fail behaviour selection,
