WORK PRO Launches Pyron

News Image
WORK PRO has launched a new range of control hardware: Pyron. B

ringing together the company's established background in digital audio and lighting control with their R&D team's experience of remote firing systems and pyrotechnic control, WORK PRO's Pyron range comprises several wirelessly controllable devices designed to provide event organisers and touring companies with complete control of stage effects and hardware ranging from stage pyrotechnics, audio and lighting effects to CO2, flame and cold fire spark machines.

The Pyron range includes an advanced suite of control software, two different DMX-equipped, battery-operable hardware consoles (the FDC W and the more fully-featured FDC A) and the FD P1 wired or wireless trigger pad, all of which are built into easily portable but durable IP67-rated water-resistant ABS transport cases for use in demanding event environments, indoor and out. The consoles connect to M2 pyrotechnic firing modules; up to 64 M2 modules can be used with each console, and each M2 can launch up to 16 fireworks simultaneously.

The consoles form the command centre of any Pyron system; both may be mains- or battery-powered for stage use, in the latter case utilising twin rechargeable 12V lead acid batteries with enough power to last several shows of average length. The FDC W can route trigger commands and macros to connected pyrotechnics via dedicated connections at the same time as controlling stage machinery, lighting and audio effects and processing via its DMX output. The top-of-the-range FDC A offers all of the functionality of the FDC W, but adds Open System Control (OSC) and Ethernet connectivity for more control options, plus a dedicated pad of hardware trigger buttons to which different firing options or macros can be assigned for live use, programmable via its built-in alphanumeric keys and two-line LCD; alternatively, the Pyron software control suite allows macro programming and assignment to be carried out on both consoles via the graphical user interface of a connected computer.

The FD P1 Fireworks Digital Pad is designed for users that need a dedicated trigger pad separate from the main console. It can be connected to the console via a cable or wirelessly as required. Up to 25 macros or individual connected pyrotechnic hardware can be triggered via the dedicated 5x5 matrix of assignable buttons, while another 3x5 matrix of trigger buttons in the separate DMX section allows simultaneous control and triggering of connected DMX-compatible lighting or audio processing hardware.
