Pica Portal™ 125

Designed by The Black Tank

The Pica Portal empowers electricians and contractors to provide power and data to remotely located Pica Cubes for clean and simple installations in architectural, museum, and entertainment applications. Capable of powering and controlling up to four Pica Cubes, the Pica Portal utilizes a common Cat5 cable to deliver both low-voltage power and DMX signal to a Pica Cube located up to 240’ (73m) away from the Portal.

To connect Pica Cubes to the Pica Portal, simply plug the Pica Portal into AC power and then connect it to a DMX control source using a 5-pin DMX cable. From there, connect up to four Pica Cubes to the output ports on the Pica Portal using standard CAT5 Ethernet cables. The Pica Portal is convection cooled, has built in electrical safety features and features integral mounting points for ease of installation.
