ETC F-Drive B-Box
A new F‐Drive accessory is now available, simplifying installation and increasing compatibility with third‐party fixtures. The B‐Box4 uses the RJ45 output of an F‐Drive card to position up to four channels of Molex, terminal, or RJ45 connections at any location in your installation. With the addition of B‐Box, the award‐winning F‐ Drive LED power system oﬀers more flexibility to meet each facility’s installation needs. Whether using third‐party or ETC‐ manufactured fixtures, specifiers can simplify the wiring required to connect to the F‐Drive unit. F‐Drive is a modular, centralized solution for controlling LED luminaires. With easy access to swappable driver cards and power supplies, all critical components are readily accessible for maintenance and updates. F‐Drive is available as an R12 rack‐mounted solution or a W1 wall‐mounted solution. A variety of connection options allow facilities to use a wide range of luminaires with B‐Box, while taking advantage of ETC’s superior dimming and control technology. ETC’s new F‐Drive System Design Tool helps confirm third‐party functionality. In addition, our integration test lab is set up and ready to receive general market fixtures for testing and performance grading.
