Power Portal 125™
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 Pica Portal™.
Simplified Power + Data Distribution for Pica Cubes™
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 CAT5e Ethernet cables. The Pica Portal™ is convection cooled, has built in electrical safety features and features integral mounting points for ease of installation.
